Feeling Old School

Just a little update on my Lent project. I made it the whole time without spending any money on clothes, shoes, jewelery, hats, scarves, books, or purses (thanks to Sarah) for myself. It was hard at first, but after a while you get used to it and then you stop feeling the need to buy things. Well, I guess I can't say I stopped feeling the need, I just learned to control it.


Anyways, on Tuesday night I was walking through Smiths Market Place (which I didn't know had so many cute things) and enjoying the fact that I could buy something for myself if I wanted to. I was wandering through the little girls section and started looking at jewelery in a Hannah Montana display. I know, disgusting that I even looked through such a display, but I saw a heart charm that took me back to my childhood. I had something just like it growing up and it was my favorite thing of all time. As soon as I saw it my heart filled with happiness and I had to have it. After making this sweet purchase (only $1.80 I might add!), I was driving home and found Micheal Jackson's, Billie Jean on the radio. Seriously, with my rainbow heart charm and Michael playing on the radio, I was right back in my old yellow room teasing my bangs and getting dressed in my tight stirrup pants. Ah, I love that old school feeling...

It is kind of cute isn't it?

I love the old schooling feeling. I am glad that you found that little heart necklace. I also am glad that you were able to buy some cute clothes at old navy in honor of lent. I can't believe you did it. I don't think I could do that.

We love hearing about your escapes and you deserve $1.80 especially with Trent gone. You probably won't be able to shop for a few days! Good Luck!!!

Amber said...

Sarah said...

Love it! You will look so cute wearing that. And, I am sure it is a relief that Lent is over.

Can't believe you made it that long without buying anything and to end it with only $1.80 purchase...your good. The necklace is super cute. I love Smiths Market Place, you can find some really cute things there.

What a cute necklace. I love things that remind me of my childhood. I found a charm bracelet a few years ago that looks just like one that I had when I was 10. I had to buy it too. It takes me back to the good ol' days every time I wear it.
