This Saturday was my 12th wedding anniversary. It feels like we just celebrated our 11th. I always thought it was a cliché when I was younger, but time really does go by fast as you get older. I think we both almost forgot about it too, though neither has admitted it. I had to go back and check my Facebook posts from last year so I could remember the date. For some reason I always think it is the 10th when it is the 9th. Then I think my anniversary Facebook post prompted Tom to remember (he was at work and posted after I did). We aren’t huge celebration people but I got dressed up for a bit which I will probably post on Instagram this week because I forgot to on Saturday.
I was able to show some versatility of my Asos dress above by wearing it as a shirt on one of the days. It easily knots and can be worn as an oversize tee. Someone on Instagram left a comment about how she bought it but it was too short so be warned if you do. I am 5’3″ and it fits well on me but perhaps I have a short torso and it falls longer. It’s really hard to tell sometimes until you try something on which is a risk your take when shopping online. That’s why I always try to buy from places with excellent returns for shipping (although I hate returning things).
Our car lease was up soon and this past Friday we traded it in for a new car. This time we got a SUV and man is it different. Our old car was a very basic bottom of the line model, because we were broke and needed and inexpensive vehicle. It did the job for 5 years (a few hiccups along the way like a break-in and vandalism that led to needing a new motor but all in all it did the job). With all my excitement you would think we got a luxury vehicle, but it’s just Hyundai Tucson although it feels like a dream after the last one (it even has a panoramic sunroof).
We have had a few good Value Village hauls the last couple of weekends. I think I am going to put together a thrifting haul post sometime this week because I love finding a good deal and fun little treasures. I am also working on a 7 days in Stockholm packing list that will be coming up soon.
If you thrift how often do you hit the thrift stores?
We try to go weekly because of the constant changeover, we don’t want to miss anything. Now that we have a car with a big trunk space we can actually donate all the huge shit that has been hanging around and cluttering the condo. Good-bye giant coffee table and Tom’s hideous frat boy style chair.
