Mom On The Go

Posted on: October 24, 2012

Heading out early this morning to a half price day at Salvation Army Thrift store, hope I find some great things.

Linking up with  and  http;//  so please go see what all the lovely ladies are up to.  

I previously confessed  my love of boots and here is an introduction to my tobacco colored riding boots.  I work hard to get my fashion items as economically as possible,  I added black flat boots last year, but desperately wanted this color, but had no luck finding any at a good price.   So, I waited patiently and after the season was over these babies went on sale.  I think I waited until late May early June as they were online and I just kept checking the availability in my size.  Not only did I wait for them to go on sale, I waited for a coupon as well, which came via my e-mail for an extra $20 of a $60 purchase.  Patience really pays off, but I have to say I am not always that patient.  Just proud to say I succeeded in waiting this time….

Picture taking opportunities exist everywhere!  This was a quick stop at the entrance to a bank as we were on our way to BJ’s to get groceries.  My husband has a great eye an spotted this area… So lucky to have his support in this new venture.

In this next photo, I just buttoned up the sweater to see how it looked. It was an afterthought in the median strip right before getting back in the van… I have to say I like how these colors work together. What luck to have found this purse at Goodwill just two weeks ago!

Gratitude-  I am so grateful for wonderful sunny days, for a supportive husband to take my photos and for days spent with friends and getting a break from homeschooling.

Love your blog! Great boots, love how you waited to get them at a bargain price. More fun that way.

Thank you, having a lot of fun with this blog. Yes, getting bargains is a lot of fun. I see it as a challenge and a game, I like to win!

The boots are really special, love that shape and color. And it’s wonderful that your husband is supportive of your blogging adventures, it does make it all more fun, imho : >

Having my husband’s support is so incredible! He takes pride in getting good shots and even gasps in delight when he thinks he captured a good one. Taking photos when I am not at my goal weight has been so much easier with his enthusiasm. I thank him often…

Getting things at great prices is a sport and I love it. I think having my husband’s support in such an enthusiastic manner makes this adventure much more special!
