Yesterday I spent the day shopping with a friend. She is a designer and we are pulling together furnishings for our new church building that is in the works. We mostly focused on the church nursery yesterday. It's been a few years since I shopped for cribs, bedding, etc........it all looks so cute. We shopped for new toys, and play yards....stopped briefly for lunch then shopped for some accent tables and iron benches....we shopped until we dropped and had lots of fun.

Then today, I had a dr. appt......still working on getting my thyroid medication worked out. This is no cakewalk. I have a new appreciation for anyone with an autoimmune disease, and anyone with any thyroid issues.

I shopped at Kohl's and Goodwill, also. While in Goodwill, I did find a Chico's denim jacket and two Chico's white tops in great condition....for $10.95, all three pieces! I picked up some other things at Kohl's--the jury is still out on some of them. I just needed a pick me up and a few things to wear for the spring. We will go to see my son and daughter in law later this month and didn't want to be stuck with my winter clothes!!!

Then I also need to concentrate on this....and some yard work. Isn't this container pretty? It was like this last spring, and I really need to make it look like that again......spring is here in TX.....near 80 degrees today. Happy Day to you wherever you are.

Isn't it fun to shop when it is for someone else? I love Kohl's too - they have some rockin' sales.

I am so jealous of your weather - U wish it were 80 degrees here!

XOXXO

Sounds like a fun day. Here's an idea...at my church we moved into a new building a few years ago. We had a shower for the children's area. Everybody brought something new or gently used from a list. It was very helpful and saved money. I guess you wouldn't want to do that for furnishings but for small things it's great.

I love Kohl's for a pick me up too! They have great buys in there.

Congrats on finding the Chicos outfits!!! I actually went into the real Chicos today and looked around. Found a cute jacket on clearance, but decided against it. I love Chicos and they fit! Sorry about the medication problems you're experiencing. What do you have, if you don't mind me asking!

Sounds like you had a great day! Great find at Goodwill. For some reason I'm never that lucky. The thyroid is a tricky problem and it can make you feel sooooo bad! Hope you can get it regulated soon.

Wow, I think Spring in Texas is like summer in Idaho. Or is it winter in Texas is like summer in Idaho?

Oh how fun! I'll bet you two had quite a time. Sounds like "the shopping fairy" was with you big time! Can't wait to see the new jacket. Praying for that pesky thyroid of yours to behave itself.

hugs,
Renee

My daughter had thyroid issues several years ago and I know all too well the problem of getting thyroid medication regulated. It is not fun!! Hang in there and hopefully you will get it resolved soon. Love & blessings in NC!
