Hi! I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was definitely too short, but aren't they always? My aunt and uncle were in town from Page to meet my brother's baby, so I spent most of Friday and Saturday night visiting with them. We had a big fish fry on Saturday, which meant great food, corn hole playing, and some scorpion hunting. Although I've lived in Phoenix for all of my life, I had never seen a scorpion in the "wild" before. My brother took a black light flashlight outside and they GLOWED so bright. We saw about 9 of them in his backyard-WHICH IS TERRIFYING!

And my friends wonder why I hate going outside at night in the summer? Critters everywhere!

Anyway, Matt and I still found time this weekend to hit up some thrift shops, and of course I found some treasures. Since it was one of Goodwill's 50% off days, I didn't have high hopes for finding much. However, I scored some great pieces for practically nothing. This denim dress caught my eye immediately. I don't wear dresses often, but I'm trying to branch out and what's easier than throwing on a denim dress? It's super soft, super comfy and has POLKA DOTS! At $4.99, this was a big thrift store score.

I was also pretty stoked to find this adorable patterned cardigan on the same trip. Mint green and birds? I'll take it. And you guys-it was a whopping $2.50 thanks to the sale. I mean c'mon!  I'll be wearing this a lot, especially to work, which is like an ice box most days. I seriously could not believe this wasn't snatched up by someone else. SCORE.

I've paired this lovely outfit with a necklace I scored at a garage sale a while back for fifty cents. Such a sweet little accessory:)

Oh! Don't worry-I even found shoes! I never find shoes at thrift stores, so this was a rare treat. They looked brand new, have STRIPES, which is second only to Polka Dots, and are so comfortable. And BAM-$4. DONE.

Teddy was pretty excited for my finds too!
