Outfit: Grandpa's Red Wool Coat



Heyo! We had a pretty great weekend around here! On Saturday Sean took me thrifting all day and we came home with stacks of records and yearbooks! We didn't want to carry the huge camera around with us, so you get phone photos :)
There are still so many places in town we haven't been to yet and we keep learning of more from friends. I am glad so many places like this can make a go of it in our community!



I found this Elvis record. I told Sean at the beginning of the day that my goal was to find an Elvis record, and he pulled this one out at the second place we stopped. I started crying. This record in particular is one that I never expected to find. It is a gospel record of his and when I was growing up we had this record on cassette tape and would listen to it over and over on long car trips. My mama would sing along and it just holds so many special memories for me. Plus, it's one of the best albums of his in my opinion. I listened to it twice in a row as soon as I got home.






After shopping we went ice skating! Sean has skated before, but not for about ten years, and this was my first time ice skating! The first half hour or so was completely and utterly terrifying, but once I got the motion down I was doing pretty well. I didn't even fall once! I did almost run into someone going super slowly in front of me though. That's next on the list-learn how to STOP! It was a good thing I had went rollerblading a few times this summer because I think that really helped me with the motions. I really want to buy skates now so that I can go more often!


Aaaaand, kitty pictures for good measure.





Happy Monday everyone! Don't forget to enter the giveaway I am having for your chance to win a gift from Jord Wood Watches! 

God Bless,

I love ice skating but I'm terrible at it, I fell last year pretty badly and now my knee makes these weird noises every time I bend :D
Love your hairdo here, it's so colorful and cute!

How truly awesome that you found guys found not only an Elvis record, as hoped for, but one that is so near and dear to your heart. Aww! I'm really happy for you, dear gal.

That is such a cozy, beautiful red winter coat.

Congratulations on going skating for the first time! I bet that was a blast!
