Consignment Sale Finds

Today my co-worker and I headed out to the semi-annual Duck Duck Goose sale  to pick up some winter goodies for our boys.  I'm pretty sure we were in there at least two hours, but I do a lot of consignment shopping and I'm learning that you can't just buy odd pieces.  You  have to have an outfit or you'll end up wasting money.  

I always end up spending the bulk of my money on daycare clothes.  I want him to be comfortable, but also look presentable when we run errands in the afternoon.  I tend to justify paying more for church clothes, so I LOVE finding consignment bargains on every day clothes.  All but two of these outfits are brand name with Children's Place, Old Navy, Gymboree, and Crazy Eight being the most common.   Plus, I scored several team shirts which are Eli's favorite.  We have the Dallas Cowboys, the Tennessee Titans, and of course, the Louisville Cardinals!

As I mentioned, I typically buy church clothes and dressier things at department stores and kid's boutiques, but that didn't stop me from browsing and finding these cute items.  Looks like blue might be in our future!

Of course I love holiday themed clothing, but I hate how limited I am to putting it on Eli.  So, consignment finds are the best.  I also like to buy them a little big so that we'll get a couple of years out of them. Ha!  I have a few things left from last year, but I picked up some more goodies for this season.

I also nabbed these deals!  Two pair of church shoes and a suitcase.  Funny story, when we travel I pack Eli's clothes in a Vera Bradly bag...poor guy.  My mother in law always teases me, so I thought the new luggage would be a nice change!!

Do you consignment shop?  If so, where? 


  1. I consign at Lil Angels Attic! It is hard to find a good/ perfect sale to meet our needs to always attend!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
