Today...and a NSV.. and a reply!!

My non scale victory: i love stopping by the thrift store on my way to meetings. So today i stopped by and saw a really nice pair of capris the only thing was that they were size 8!! Oh well i figured i'd try them on and see if i could do them up :) Not only could i do them up but the fit really nice. Oh and i also picked up a toggle cardigan. Both ended up costing me $2.50.
I received a reply from the company that produced those fruit bites. Remember from an earlier post that i weighed them and got less than 1/2 of the amount that it said in the nutrional values??

  3. Let's hear it for our newest size 8!!! And the crowd goes wild. Good for you!!! Hey, if nothing else, by writing to the company you got some coupons. A few cents and a few friendly complaints, who knows??? Someone out there might actually be listening. And AHHHHH! yes, I remember flowers, grass, and spring. Coming soon to an area near me. ( I HOPE!)

  4. Love thrift store finds, but I don't think I have had one that good in a long time...if ever. Beautiful pics! And even when they use their legal jibber jabber, it still feel kinda good to get a reply. Glad you are having such a good day, Ms. Size Eight!
