it is a miracle.

I am back on blogging track. It is Thursday and I am writing about Thursday. Shocker. I have faked my blog posts for almost a week now and have been days behind. YEA for not giving up and finishing blogging what I wanted to.Jeff's boots and his three girls feet

Today Jeff came home in his military uniform, we don't often get a chance to see him in it(i won't say why) I had to take some photos as he will probably only be wearing it for two more years and I fear this time will pass and I won't have any photos to remember this time.
When he came home Sally Jane said, "Dad are those your own boots?" they look so huge and i don't know if she has ever seen him wear them.

i have made two excellent dinners this week if I do say so myself. Salmon with salsa Verde and this awesome potato casserole. Then tonight egg rolls - yum.

but the exciting news is my awesome, amazing awesome Goodwill find on Tuesday. We are setting it up and I will get some photos soon. my hint is that it is the largest used item I have ever purchased that is not a car. i paid $15.00. any guesses?

I'd like to know WHY you don't see him in his uniform often?????

Trampoline, maybe?

The suspense is killing me! A swingset? Whatever it is, I'm sure I'm going to be dying over the price. You rock the thrifting.

An Armoire?

We will be in your neck of the woods July 16 for a Full Military Funeral. My FIL passed away last Friday. I can't imagine how beautiful the ceremony will be in Arlington.

They always had great furniture at the second hand stores their, maybe it's a bed or a playground set? Hmmm, we're all ears!

Amy said...

I am guessing outdoor patio furniture?

Kim said...

Maybe a dresser or a bed?? Those are my top goodwill finds. Can't wait to see your find!!

Natasha said...

A trampoline?

Kim Sue said...

wow the blogging you have done since I dropped by it was great to catch up. I can't wait to find out what your great buy is!

Kristi said...

a patio set? that is what I would love to find!!

Hannah said...

I have a lot to catch up on! Those pictures are great- gotta love a man in uniform.

Your thrift finds kill me. I am guessing some type of exercise equipment.

Missy :o) said...

Is it an entertainment center? or a trampoline??

carlo said...

to capture the everyday pics is such a blessing.

love your thrifting riddle.

is it a playhouse (litle tykes or the like?)

carlo said...

ps- i am playing catch up too and did not realize you had not blogged in "real time!"

your Ak lost story had me in tears. I am so amazed you did not lose it completely--I would have. You are a strong woman. Do you realize that? (on many levels)

Lauralee said...

a swing set.. and why don't you see jeff in his uniform???
cute feet picture!

Price Cream Parlor said...

A wooden play structure is my guess - but te $15 is throwing me for a loop. Can't wait to see what it is!
Fun photo of your three littles with Dad's uniformed legs and boots! What a cute photo!

Amanda L. said...

That is a great photo...and those boots look brand new!

Next time we come to DC I am hitching a trailer to our van and following you to your thrift store. I believe it's the best one in the country.

Melinda said...

I am so jelous of your good will finds. It is almost tempting to fly out just to go shopping with you! I bet it is some kind of fabulous bedroom set or something crazy like that. It will be something we will all go crazy for and won't believe you only spent 15! So fun!!!

J&K Freeman said...

It has to be a swingset! I see everyone else already guessed that too.

Tasha said...

A tranploine?

I have to say, that Jeffrey is an Officer AND a gentleman!

lisa (lost pezhead) said...

i'm going to guess a swing set.

eve said...

a kitchen-aid or some sort of mixer. i guess that's not that big, but i'd be excited to find that at goodwill for $15! a hot tub would be awesome too...

Liz said...

I love the pic of Jeff and the girls' feet. SO sweet.

I am guessing that you bought a BBQ???

i'm kelly said...

$15 & it's the biggest thing you've ever bought? i have no idea... i can't wait to find out. can you look for a buffet for me? i want one for my kitchen & have yet to come across anything good. you seem to be the queen at thrifting.
