5 Things {A Few Randoms & A Cruise Worthy Dress}

The fun things about this outfit:
Dress - Target uber Sale, Bracelet - Old Navy ($2), Shoes - Ross

A few randoms to share with you.

1. I know how to spell "Navy"... But every time I type it I have to correct it... 
I always type "Nave"
Lame life of a fast-typing-terrible-speller.

2. This dress makes my dream to one day go on a cruise somehow magnify by 1,000%.
Now I have something cruise-worthy to wear!

3. It saddens me that nothing in this outfit is thrifted.
Who have I become? Summer what have you done to me?

4. YES! I still do Crossfit!

5. This week is flying by much tooooo quickly...
And not quickly enough, all at the same time.
I need more of Jesus today! That is all.

1John 2:1
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. 
But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

Black & White Dress

The fun things about this outfit:
Dress - Target uber sale, Shoes - Target, Bracelet - Thrifted, Earrings - Made by Me

So as I went through last weeks photos to post, I realized that I felt a little silly 
posting that sleeves were back on Monday. I should have waited until the end of the 
week, because last week the sun was still shining brightly and I have a few more 
sun dresses to show you all. Oh well, live & learn. 

2 Thessalonians 2:13
But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved 
by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through 
sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.

Couldn't Resist

The fun things about this outfit:
Shirt - Thrifted, Shoes & Skirt - Target, Necklace - HandMeDown

I know that I just yesterday said how excited I was about fall being here, 
sleeves being back and rain starting to fall... But, I couldn't resister showing 
you this great skirt I found on the uber sale rack at target. 
I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago while the sun was still shining.

I'm sure I'm not the only girl who thinks Target sucks you in.

It's almost like a casino. You loose track of time and money. My Target doesn't 
have cell reception, so the outside world can't reach in and snap you back to reality.

So, all this to say, I tend to try not to venture there toooo often. 
But I will go at the end of a season. All the previous season stuff is on sale and 
brand new things are at thrift store prices. And you all know I love thrift store prices!

Hebrews 10:11-14
And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, 
which can never take away sins. But when Christ had offered for all time a single 
sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time 
until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering 
he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.

Sleeves Are Back

The fun things about this outfit:
Chambray - Thrifted, Jeans - Old Navy, Shoes - HandMeDown, Bracelet - Old Navy ($2)

I'm pretty pumped for fall! I'm that person who loves each and every season in it's time.
So while I love the sun, I'm not sad when the rain starts.

Needless to say, I was excited for a more chilled day to toss a sleeved shirt on.
The rain is coming! And I'm excited!

Galatians 5:22-24
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Chase Me Again: A Unique Thrift Shop for You {Five}

The fun things about this outfit:
Shirt - Chase Me Again, Jeans - Old Navy, Shoes - HandMeDown, White Bracelet - Chase Me Again

First, I think this shirt is adorable and I love that it was just $3!

As you look around Chase Me Again thrift store you'll notice a strange doorway that says, "walk thru." You guessed it people, Chase Me Again has a second store. It's called Chase Me Home and is filled with treasures for decorating a home. These outfit shots were taken in one of the cute displays!

Not only is Chase Me Again a thrift store, and Chase Me Home a cute decor store, but they are both run by a unique group! All week I've been sharing things I've found out about these incredible stores with you and to close the week I asked Sue in conclusion, what makes Chase Me Again Unique?

The volunteer staff has picked up my philosophy that life is beautiful and that reflects in our store. They take great pride in how the store is run and in how it looks. On most days we are running a retail store . . . but on some days . . . we are having fun at the clubhouse,

My mantra passed down to me from my Mother is, "Be Happy".  

There you have it people! I hope you all go check it out!

Romans 6:10-11
For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. 
So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Chase Me Again: A Unique Thrift Shop for You {Four}

Ok, I know you saw this outfit last week. That's why there aren't a ton of pictures to 
show the outfit. But I had to put it in here because it is soooo from Chase Me Again.

Both the dress and the shades are from the store! I was so pumped when 
I came across these shades for $1.00 that I snatched them right up. 
I know they're ridiculously goofy, but hey, that's me!

I wanted to show you a little look inside the doors of Chase Me Again.
After reading all the amazing places that they give their proceeds, I just know you're all ready to donate and shop. Sue made sure to tell us what sort of things they accept.

We take clothing, accessories, books, household items, home decor, and furniture.

What we can't take is kids highchairs, cribs, car seats, or strollers. 
Our insurance company does not want to cover the liability these items may bring on. 
In fact most thrift store cannot take these items any more for the same reason.

We also had to stop taking in the real heavy furniture. We have an all woman 
staff and we just can't lift the big pieces. But we love small to medium sized furniture!

Or maybe you don't have anything to donate but still want to be part of the great things going on at Chase Me Again. Don't worry, Sue told us some other things we could do!

Customers contribute to the cause whenever they buy from us. 
We can't keep the doors open if we aren't making money.

We also need to keep spreading the word about our store so that we get 
more customers. I love hearing from the new customers how they found our store. 
Most of the time it's by word of mouth and usually from more than one source.

During the winter we will do a food and toiletry drive for the warming shelter aga

So jump in your car and get over there!

John 15:9-11
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 
If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my 
Father's commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, 
that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
