My Trip To Florida

As a lot of you know I was in Florida last week with my mom visiting my Grandma. She lives in an RV park in Lake Wales, Florida and every February my mom and I visit her for a week! We had a great time and did lots of shopping! I wanted to share a few of my outfits, some of my thrfty finds, and some of my favorite shots from the trip!

Here are some of my outfits:

 We went to the Lake Wales Care Center Thrift Store:

 We also visited The Exchange Consignment Store in Lake Wales- this place is our favorite- they always have really nice stuff!
 mom and grandma in wigs!
 Yes, I found a Burberry jacket- it ended up being only $15! I don't know if it's real or not but it's super cute so I don't really care!
 vintage clutch $12
 I picked out these two dresses for my mom. The second is a Calvin Klein!

We also went to 2 different Bealls Outlets where I found some great accessories:
 necklace $6.99
 bracelet $3.99
headband $3.99

I got these cool glasses from Kmart:
 sunglasses $9.99 each

Our best shopping trip though was at another Care Center Thrift Store on Rt 27
My mom got 5 stuffed animals for her dog and I got a puzzle and a mug and our total came to $.67! My mom gave her a dollar and told her to keep the change! This has to be the cheapest thrift store ever!
 I love Charles Wysocki's puzzles!
 I had to have this mug- it cracked me up!

We stayed one night with my Aunt Sue and her friend Connie gave me this amazing costume dress! She got it at Goodwill for $5 and wore it for a costume party. She was going to give it back to Goodwill  but I said I'd take it. You never know when you are going to need a costume for a party! Thanks Connie!

  I also had a great time trying out my new camera! Here are some of my favorite shots:

Now it's back to work and cold weather- booo!
