Snazzy Clothes for All

Wow!   Summer is just flying by.....a wedding we've been anticipating for months came and went on Saturday.  Our friends Kara and Dan were married in a beautiful outdoor wedding at a nature preserve.  We shall all say thanks for glorious air conditioning afterwards...and for a minister who kept the ceremony short and sweet. ;-)  

I was FINALLY able to wear a dress I've been DY.ING to wear somewhere....I bought it for $6 at Goodwill...and actually paid twice that to have it drycleaned, but I guess it was worth it. ;-)  Beautiful green silk that flared out when I spun around on the dance floor.  FUN STUFF folks.  I have a confession.....I buy most of my clothes at Goodwill.  The Marion, Iowa Goodwill is possibly the best Goodwill in all the land....brand new high quality clothes ALL THE TIME.  Awesome clothes.  I once scored a pair of $200 jeans there....for $3.  I didn't much care that they originally cost $200....but realized there is definitely a difference in quality between $200 jeans and $30 jeans! 

Happy shopping (and wedding season)  friends!! :-)


  1. You guys look amazing and that dress looks awesome on you. Beautiful and like it was made for you.

    I love Goodwill and am really looking forward to having time to go to Goodwill and SalVo when school is done and the house is sold. Soon? I hope?

  2. LOVE. the. dress.

    It was obviously made just for you! Looks great! :)

  3. Oh my goodness! You clean up good! What a hansom family my grandmother would say. Ha ha
    Can't believe that dress! What a bargain! That should make your husband happy.

  4. snazzy! love the dress. you have such a beautiful family.

    i'm glad you find nice clothes at goodwill! my goodwill has a terrible smell and all the clothes look like they are from my grandparents basement. ... no good.

    hope you're having a splendid summer!


I kinda love comments, who doesn't? Nice comments. Only. I'm picky that way. ;-)
