It was MY weekend to go thrifting! Not only was it fun and inexpensive, but I found the elusive Holy Grail! (you know, the Holy Grail for the House of Steve!) Saturday was 50% off Goodwill shopping. Here's some items that didn't make it into the basket. I about died when I found this mug. My friend always says "I LOVE MY LIFE" to help her laugh in less than perfect moments. I thought I had found THE gift for her.....
until I saw that it actually said "wife". Bummer! But please tell me what husband would EVER use this mug?!?
Next up, Uncle Sam channeling Michael Jackson?!?
to the original Angry Bird!
I guess it's true, if you feed a bird rice and then let him drink - he expands! This one's about to burst!!!
Now for something that I did put in the cart.
Our Holy Grail....the elusive eagle!
I never had a problem finding eagles at thrift stores, until I was looking for one! Then there wasn't an eagle to be found. As I was preparing for Colton's Eagle Court of Honor, I had my vision of the food table. There would be a large eagle in the center and smaller eagles on either side. Instead, I found nothing. Then, in a last ditch effort, I went to the dollar store and found these eagles. I painted them red, white, blue and silver and they were placed on the display table by his eagle certificate. Friday at Deseret Industries (DI), as I was looking at some chairs (look behind the eagle) I saw something across the room. When I realized what it was, I yelled at my mom to watch my basket and ran. It does exist and I found it! It's even bigger and better than I ever imagined!!! The only problem, I couldn't afford the price tag. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Why would I find it only to leave it in the store. Unbeknownst to me, a couple of employees were very curious as to why I was running through the store, yelling that I found it. My mom quickly told them my plight, and when they saw I couldn't afford it, they had pity on me, reduced the price (less than 1/2 the original price), and I said YES!!!! I was so excited....like EMBARRASSINGLY excited! Like, taking my photo with it excited! (and then blogging-about-it excited!) And since this photo doesn't quite show his majesty...
Here he is!
All two and a half feet of him!
Now, it's time for you to help. He needs a name! (and I think to be painted one color - especially since he will be displayed in the House of Steve) So, what would you name him?
