So this weekend Blake gave me some alone time! And since I am an introvert, it is alone time in every since of the word! There are times that I really want to go out with the girls, and then there are time I literally don’t want to have to talk to any one! 🙂 And Sunday afternoon was one of those times! One of my secret pleasures is going to thrift stores! My sweet mother in law, Drexell, is a pro at finding great deals at thrift stores! So I have had the joy of getting to go to these stores with her over the years! Blake went to thrift stores growing up! So we have gone to them often! When I first started going, I was kinda taken off gaurd by the “organized chaos”, but over time have grown to appreciate it! I enjoy looking at all the dishes, home decor, games, appliances, and clothes that people have considered “junk” and thrown into their Goodwill piles to get rid of. I am one of those people as well. And ya know what…when you buy something like a coffee pot from a thrift store and only pay a buck fifty for it…you don’t feel near as guilty about throwing it out! So anyway… back to Sunday…there are several thrift stores on the main street close to our house. So I decided to go spend some time pleasuring myself with other peoples junk! The last store I went in was kinda overwhelming. It was really messy, the music was blaring, and for a Sunday afternoon it seemed REALLY busy! (especially for a thrift store) But as I proceeded to shop…and I found a treasure! I found a khaki colored denim jacket for $1.08! Absolutely nothing wrong with it! Not one thing…except that it smelled like a thrift store! So you better bet I bought that jacket right there! A DOLLAR and a DIME later…I had a myself a really cute jacket. I came home, stuck it in the washer, and like a little girl with a new shirt, wore my jacket to Bible study the next morning! I love it when I find great steals! I am sure there aren’t many of you out there who enjoy thrift stores the way my family does, but if you are one of the few…I would love a buddy to go with next time!
So tell me…what’s a secret pleasure you have?
