Thrifting Buddy Needed!

18 Sep

I am on the hunt for a formal dress for John’s OCS formal! I would like something unique, and not crazy expensive. So I’m thinking of finding something used, and maybe altering it? Or maybe not if it’s awesome to begin with.

So I did some research and found these places to look:

Thrift Stores

  • Salvation Army – opens @ 9:00
    535 East Ridge Road & 745 West Avenue
  • Goodwill – opens @ 10am

  • Thrifty Shopper – opens @ 9:00
    400 Jefferson Rd
  • Volunteers of America – opens @ 9:00
    214 Lake Ave. & 89 Canal St.
  • Second Season Clothing (Even though they advertise on PXY, blech!) – opens @ 10:00
    1555 Mt. Hope Ave – haha I found you online not through radio suckas

Estate Sales

  • 321 Cedar Place in East Rochester 10am
  • 1226 Stafford Cresent in Webster 9am to 3pm

Halloween is getting close. Even though I didn’t really have to, I sketched out my version of this costume. I need to go buy some fabric!  I actually don’t know if this will work though.  It will depend on how cold October is.  Although, I guess I will be most likely going to Monster Jam this year, and that always gets hot because it’s so crowded.  So who knows.

Twilight Hearts Yarn

I didn’t mow yesterday, but I did knit!

“Nom nom nom”

“WTF you mean stop?”

“But I waaaaant it.”

“Yarn yarn yarn.”

Should I just remake this whole post in the style of LOLcats?

PS: John was able to call yesterday. Yay!

Happy Anniversary

14 Sep

John and I were married a year ago today.

He is in the field today, so I went up over Labor Day weekend so we could celebrate it. In case you were wondering, it is possible, and not even problematic, to bring wedding cake slices onto a Delta flight.

It was fun, and I loved seeing him, but it’s hard being at work knowing he’s not at home to greet me when I’m done for the day. I don’t even know if he’ll be able to call me. He asked his cadre (spelling?) if he can and we have our fingers crossed. We’ll see.

It’s been an interesting year.  I love you John.  I miss you.

I’m going to go home, maybe mow the lawn, and work on his blanket.  I’m hoping to have it done for his graduation, but we’ll see.  When all of you look at me, confused, when I say I want to make him a patchwork knitted blanket, think this.  I have a Netflix movie, but it’s about a wedding, and I couldn’t get through it last week.  Maybe this week I’ll be stronger.
