Happy Mother's Day! (and some thrift shop steals!!)

Hello out there in bloggy land to all my fellow mothers. I hope your Mother's day was a great one!
We had a very nice day here. Although it started out early with me taking Taylor to work at the coffee shop, it did give me extra time in the day to get lots of things done. I did get a chance to lay down after Teresa, Jaquelyn & Rebecca brought me breakfast in bed. Teresa made some crumb cake that was really yummy and also made my favorite "breakfast burritos". I snoozed a bit then picked Taylor up from the shop. We kinda skimmed through lunch with everyone having something different then the girls got together and gave me some goodies. They are soooooo precious. Dan had beat them all to the punch with a surprise that came in the mail yesterday...a Mickey Mouse watch like my favorite one that had broken long ago! What an amazing guy!
We watched a movie together that was pretty good and amazingly enough, none of us had ever seen it. (an old made-for-tv movie called "Gold Diggers: The Secret of Bear Mountain") Dinner was not much since we were not very hungry after the yummy popcorn but then we had strawberry shortcake for dessert!
Now on to the fun day at the thrift shop yesterday! We have a favorite thrift shop that we go to that is about an hour from our house. I know that is a bit of a drive but we usually have other things we need to take care of in the area...such as sleep over pickups, doctors visits, etc. I don't always share my finds with my bloggy friends but sometimes I just get so excited by the amazing deals, I just can't help myself!

Here is my cute skirt from New York & Co....with the tags still on it!

Some adorable shorts I found for Rebecca...I love, love, love plaid shorts!!

I have such a weakness for shoes it's hard not to go crazy there but when I saw these Teva's I just HAD to pick them up for Rebecca!

I am always on the lookout for tennis skirts since I play 3-5 times per week and I don't like to have to wear the same ones all the time. The thrift shop helps me have lots of them and still stay in a budget!

And of course I had to save the best for last...I rarely buy things for Rebecca & Jaquelyn to "grow into" because I know there will be plenty of things to buy when they are that age, no need to store for years. However, when I saw this skirt for under $3.00 I just knew I had to buy it. It is a size 8 but the way Rebecca is growing that will only be next year that she'll be wearing it! When we got home I just had to look up how much this skirt would have cost brand new...straight from the Burberry website...$145! For a CHILDS skirt...are you kidding me!?!?!?! I think this wins for best steal!
