We three definitely had some fun going thrifting. We went to three thrift stores, a habitat for humanity store, and one antique store. I didn't really take any photos of the stuff they had there ( and now I regret it but I promise to next thrifting adventure) But I do have some photos of the stuff we snagged.
We got this adorable silver platted serving tray at a Goodwill for only $3.96
I just love the detail and the antiquity of it.
I think I raved about what a great steal this was about five times to the Hubby. Whats even more funny is that when we went to the antique shoppe we saw the exact same one (with the silver plating a little less tarnished) that was $10! I'm already using it for a table setting and the Hubs used it on our anniversary for breakfast in bed. *cue the collective aww*.
While we were at the thrift store (the same one) my amazing husband found this beauty.Its was only $4 dollars! I could so see it being something you would find at target for like $15. We are trying to do our back yard/porch in these colors ( in the future because we live in an apartment right now) and we both couldn't put it down. I think we stood there ewwing and awing over it while my poor sister just stood there embarrassed for a good three minutes.

Once we got home from thrifting around and running errands, everyone sat down to rest and just enjoy chatting and having a good time... that is, everyone but me. No I was in the kitchen cooking up a little treat for the birthday girl.
After scarfing down two cupcakes each (dad... I saw you eat that third one so don't think your included in that!), I made dinner and we sat around chatting and just catching up with old time. It was nice to just chill and have fun talking and watching the ol'tube ( we don't have one so its kind of a novelty) before heading off to bed.
The next day.... you thought this post was over? The next day, we went out to eat for her birthday dinner and we surprised her with a couple of friends.
She had a lemoncello. I wasn't brave enough to taste it because I'm not a fan of sour stuff but everyone else said it was really good. When dinner was over we all went back to my parents house and celebrated by scarfing down more cupcakes while my sister cought up with her friends and watched online videos. It was all rather laid back and I hope she had as much of a good time as we did visiting. Its funny how you get older and yet so much stays the same. Then, when you look around you everything is different. I hope Sher (my sister) has a wonderful year and can't wait to see were the road will lead her next.
Have any of you felt really old when you look at your younger siblings? How about when you look at your kids? have you ever had a drink you just loved or made something so bad you'll never dare to make it again? What about all you thrifters? Find anything good lately or have you ever ran across something you bought at a thrift store at anther place for way more?
