This weekend was a fun filled weekend. Saturday, my sister, Rachel and I went on a date with our Grandma to go see the movie 'Safe Haven'. It's based off of the Nicholas Sparks novel. It's about a woman who escapes from a physically abusive marriage and finds herself in Southport, North Carolina. She tries keeping a low profile, in constant fear that her husband would find her. She finds herself falling in love with a single dad with two kids and finds herself at a turning point in her life. It was such a good movie full of hope of overcoming and of healing love.
Afterwards we went and ate lunch at Coney I-lander. So delicious! It was good getting to spend the day with Grandma and Sister. They are part of such a precious precious part of my family that I love getting to spend time with.
This shirt was one of my favorite finds of my trip to OKC a few weeks ago. I found it at a resale shop called the Daisy Exchange. It's full of beautiful gently used clothing. They buy or trade clothes.
The jacket I got several years ago at Wal-Mart, of all places. It was a 'make myself feel better' jacket after I came out of my apartment at the time to find the side view mirrors on my car bashed off. It was been a faithful jacket.
This purse used to be my Mama's. Actually I found it in ht back of the closet in my old room at their house and decided I wanted to use it. I believe that it's hers from back in the day, maybe a gift from her mama. I just found it while trying to organize stuff in my house the other day and have been using it ever since. When I carry a purse, I don't just carry it for a week. I carry it for a couple of months. I hate cleaning out my purse. though since the purses I've been carrying have gotten smaller and smaller, I have less to clean out. :)
Here's a close up of the fun print of the shirt. I just loved it! I still couldn't resist when I was told that it was accidentally placed on the $3 rack and was instead $8 or $12. It's hardfor me to pay full price for clothes any more whehn I know there are places like Daisy Exchange or Platos closet just full of stranger's hand me downs! I love the wildlife print. Full of mooses (meese?), does, bucks, bunnies and geese. It sure cheers me right up when I put it on!
