Today was another typical Sunday in Fort Worth. Church, lunch at the bluu, Study, Chapter, pretend tomorrow is not Monday... you know, the usual. Well it was another typical Sunday until two things changed it up!
First off, after lunch, my friend Michele wanted to go to Kendra Scott because it is her birth month. For those of you jewelry obsessed girls, you know you have to have lots of Kendra. I mean I care nothing about jewelry, but after hearing Madison and Hillary talk about it constantly, I decided to go along for the ride. If you didn't know, when it is your birth month you can go in and get 25% off of your purchase. (I wish I had some place where I could do that!) So I went with Michele, and they had some pretty beautiful things. After the first minute in that store, I got bored. Typical, right? I then began to think about the conversation I had a couple of days ago with a friend who could not believe that I had never been thrift shopping. I mean I knew people did that, but she said you really had to go to understand. Then I decided that I would get Michele and Becca to go with me after that for fun. I mean why not? We went to Goodwill and man was it an experience. I am so thankful for those places for two reason:
1. If I was in a situation where I needed a place like that, I would be so thankful for it. Yes, there things are used, but there is nothing wrong with that. You just need to wash it before you wear it!
2. They have incredibly cheap prices. Like what the heck! My dad would be so proud of me lol.
I went in not really looking for anything and came out with two flannels. (if you read Southern and Well Dressed you know I have had a thing for flannels lately) Two insanely cheap flannels... in my size. One cannot beat that! I will be sharing more about those on Southern and Well Dressed, so stay tuned.
Even though I had the sudden urge to take a shower after I left Goodwill, it was still the perfect twist to a Sunday! If you are looking for a good costume, cheap clothes, or even a fun experience, go to a thrift store.
Also, tonight after Chapter I had the pleasure of going to celebrate my friends birthday. Billy is a great guy, and I feel blessed to have met him at TCU. I feel even more blessed to call him my brother. He wears cubbies all year round, he is from Cali, and most importantly he is a great dude. Thanks for buying my first pizzokies and letting me celebrate with you! Happy Birthday man!
(if you are wondering what a pizzokie is, see below. I am forever changed!)
Needless to say, today has been a fun and awesome day with a twist of course!
I have a BIG test on Tuesday. I have a lot riding on this test and I really need prayers. It will determine if I can continue in my major and I believe I would really like to, so prayers please. I trust that God has a plan and he will see me through everything, but I still love your prayers. Y'all rock!
Do something different. Celebrate a birthday. Eat a pizzokie. Remember that Sunday is the day of rest, and you are allowed to have a little fun, even if Monday is haunting you!
In all you do, remember to be thankful!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A recent graduate from Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
