I like to show you what you missed out on, because I'm mean AND I want you to try Goodwill for yourselves....Go already!!
A bin of cowboy boots....you heard me!! I was shopping with my friend Margie and she tipped me off to the bin being rolled out.....here is the sad part.....ALLLL of them were size 6 1/2. Tiniest feet ever. Dang it!!!
The Parker, Colorado store has AMAZING equestrian items! You are deep in horse country there and each Goodwill sells from items donated to that specific store.
Thrift store rule #6,759 People who donate normally donate in multiples. No one is going to drive to Goodwill and drop off a pair of boots, or a pair of jeans....realistically, people wait until they have a large donation and take it all at once....What does that mean for you? If you see something amazing in your size look for more...I once found 3 Brooks Brother shirts that way...I just kept looking for similar shirts in my size and someone bought three colors in Brooks Brothers. I bought them in G-Dub and saved myself a couple hundred dollars. cuz that how I roll.

You know how when you enter a class for the first time and everyone has all of the paraphernalia strewn all about....ropes and pulleys, mats, some round disk things, weights, top-secret gadgety things.....I was trying to get all of this together without looking like a total moron.....let me interject by saying that I work out at a rec center during daylight hours so everyone there is in their mid 60's...moving on....
So the teacher comes in and says, "ok everyone hit the track!"....track? whaaat is that the cardio? I was thinking more along the lines of some great dance moves and techno music NOT running around a boring track....well here is where the story gets way LESS boring....
So we are doing these side-galloping sort of things and two members of the class tripped over each other and all h-e-double fishsticks breaks lose... so this lady in her mid 60's hits the ground HARD and so everyone stops and tries to figure out what to do...meanwhile she is yelling AAAAARRRRRRRGGHHHHH! and her husband says, "oh she's fine...." thanks sir, she looks fine.....(about yelling in public...I would rather poke my eyes out with a stick......even during labor......) so now I'm all nervous for her, because of the yelling part....our teacher is barking orders....get the management, call 9-1-1, her husband says "oh no she's fiiiiine.."
Then the teacher says everyone just do 2 laps and meet me in the class. So even though I think its a little weird that I'm running laps while a grandma is yelling ...'MY HIIIIIP!" I just get a runnin'. We go back to class, the teacher meets us there and starts saying, "ok now grab some weights, we're doing arms." Arms? What? I'm now too chicken to walk out because of all of the paraphernalia I unloaded around my spot......so I just start pumping iron with the rest of the sheep.....then my teacher starts to cry...booohooo-sobbing-snotty crying.......in her Janet Jackson headphone.......now second to screaming in public, my number two fear is crying in public.....so I'm all sweaty and nervous for her and I am barely squelching the urge to make a run for it myself....so she runs out of the class sobbing but you can still hear her over the speakers because she didn't turn of her headset!......now I'm all good and sweaty just from the scene of it all! So this girl in the class decides to step forward and take over and says, "ok now let's do dead lifts" and proceeds to keep lifting...Whaaaaaa? Seriously? Am I being punked? I took that as my opportunity to get the heck out of dodge.
It's official...I'm sticking to Zumba from now on. It's better for my mental health.
*I think the lady is fine....well according to her very sympathetic husband anyway.
about a little copper tray that he picked up his fabulous outing at a New York Flea Market, in his cute puffer jacket and burberry scarf. It looked like this:
Well as serendipity would have it, I was perusing my favorite botique, you know... Goodwill, in my lucky jeans and down parka and what did I happen upon? hmmmmmm........
This is the AFTER picture! I had to scrub that thing for-ev-er. Of course once again I did take a BEFORE picture withouth the card in the camera!! Canon will you please have an alarm go off if someone is taking pictures with no card in the camera! So here is Eddie's in all of its Rat Pack Glory!
We're having family friendly martinis! Just use Sparkling Cider with Pom pomegranite juice! Delicious, good for you, the kids can have some, and it is a beautiful red color for valentines day!
Here is another way, for a fancy treat:
Girl Scout Cookies and milk anyone?
I'm telling you the best chocolate milk ever is shaken in a stainless steel martini shaker with ice. Try it!
Eddie would be so proud!

On to my Goodwill Tour of 4160 South Broadway Englewood, CO 80113-4633. The store is really clean and nice on the inside, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I met an employee there who was shopping on her day off! She was very sweet...

He was kind enough to sign a trillion autographs and take photos with his multitude of fans.
I snapped a quick photo of my friend Wendy's daughter..soo cute...
Mondo AND cupcakes? Big night!! The red velvet was tremendous!
(I was a little weak in the knees)
I would love to show you the items I got...buuuut since I was working there I didn't have a chance to take my 10 items....that's ok it was CRAZY!
I noticed Chloe from The Chloe Conspiracy from across the room. She is soo adorable on her blog AND in person! I knew she lived in Denver, but it is so weird so see a blogger in person! (I guess I thought she only lives in my computer...) I got all befuddled and said..."Hey are you a blogger?" (my mind went blank and I could NOT remember her name for the life of me!) "I read your blog every day!" She was very sweet, especially to some crazy person that says they read your blog every day but doesn't know your name or your blog's name. Awkward move on my part!! Turns out her husband was lost in the sea of women.....yikes!
It was soo much fun...and a little crazy all at the same time!
