The Always Practical Poncho


Well I woke up to a very peaceful Saturday morning, due to the fact that Zach was away at a class all day.  He was less than thrilled but I was a little excited to have the whole apartment to myself for the day.  When you're married, these kinds of days can be few and far between so I decided to get out on my own, grab brunch, rent a movie, and kick back and relax.  So long as I got all my chores done! 



But all that changed when I got a phone call from my friend Diane asking if I'd like to hit up a local flea market.  Of course!!!  I didn't plan on buying anything but I just wanted to go along for the ride.  Well, the flea market wasn't in existence, so we went to a fabulous new Goodwill in the area.  And score!!!  I found so many pretty things.  Hardly any of it fit though.  A vintage Gunne Sax dress was begging for me to buy it, but it was too darn small in the butt area.  Apparently size 7 back then was more of a size 1.  Oh well.  I did find this amazing poncho though!!!  

I hope everyone's weekend is shaping up to be fun and productive. Oh and Emily Allison from Nudgenick Loves Twinkle Lights did a great interview with me.  Take a look at her blog and read her other interviews with awesome bloggers and her style posts!
