Yesterday, our family friends brought this treat over for after dinner. Basically, this is everything I want in a dessert, but I'm staying strong until after the race this weekend. Week three of no desserts. Pretty sure the devil was actually in that dessert box.
|I froze these little nuggets for when I get home next week.|
Because my husband (Amory) had a semi-vacation day, meaning he only worked 6 hours instead of 16, I was able to get in the car and speed off into the sunset with just B and E (the older kids) in tow. Being twin-free has its benefits when in a store surrounded by things that are obviously beckoning little fingers to pull them into the cart or crash them into the ground.
Planet Thrift was having a 50% off everything sale, and I just so happen to need 50% off of stuff. My mental list, which I always make before thrift store shopping, included a king-size headboard that is quite ugly but might look cool spray-painted orange, a Garmin watch (dream big, right!), and something on which to hang medals. You can tell I'm running a race this week, right!
I found a perfect headboard for $10 (exclamation point), but A-dawg was not into it based on the iPhone picture.
|If you vote that this would look awesome spray painted orange, you are in my new club, where people are awesome.|
Although I was aiming high to find a Garmin (I'm not kidding, you really never know what you will find at these places), I did manage to at least find one running accessory. A brand new FuelBelt Revenge with the tags still on it! Maybe a Christmas gift gone wrong? Still needs to be thoroughly washed because it has a nasty case of thrift store dusty grime, but for $1.50, I can sacrifice a little soap.
|Child photographers at work. The red bear behind me is one my daughter was begging to buy. My one firm thrift-store rule: never buy stuffed animals (or undies)!|
|I found the same belt online for $33.95. That's 96% more than I paid.|
The belt has three fluid bottles, and the upside-down bottle is for gel. Can you make your own gel? Just wondering if I would ever fill this with gel? Do you squeeze your GU packet inside it? Look for a review once I've had a chance to experiment with it. Although, to note, I have always thought these were really goofy looking and swore to never buy one. That is a lesson to everyone: don't swear. The second lesson: standards are less important than penny pinching.
This was the closest I got to a medal holder, but I passed based on hating it.
|Five dollars if you can tell me what this actually is.|

|As my 8-year-old daughter pointed out, that outfit is just not right, especially "down there."|
