Thrifty Tuesday

Last week, I talked about Matt and me celebrating 50 months of happy marriage here: http://2kidneybeans.blogspot.com/2012/07/fiftieth-anniversary.html. I also mentioned that we were planning to go to my favorite places on Saturday to celebrate. Saturday morning we slept in and started out at about 10 on our way to go thrifting, to the Cheesecake Factory, and Pottery Barn. I love all three of these places! I had planned to take my camera to capture the moments forever but totally forgot it. I did take a picture of my finds to share with you though.
3 tops, 1 pair of capri pants, 1 dress, and 1 dress shirt for Matt.

After going to many thrift stores I found some really awesome stuff. The best find that I’m really excited about was a book written by Dr. Sears The Premature Baby Book. I had looked it up on Amazon right before we left and I was able to buy it for only 75 cents, What a deal! I also found a book about parenting adopted kids at the same place. I’m pretty amazed that these were both at the same place and I was already going to buy Dr. Sears’ book. It was truly God’s provision for us. I think that everything I bought added together would have cost what the book would have cost brand new. Ok, that may be an exaggeration, but I was pretty excited to find it. Here is a link to it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/The-Premature-Baby-Book-Everything/dp/0316738220

I’ve started reading the book and it has helped me understand a little better everything that Malakai went through. I’ve enjoyed it and it is written in a very easy to understand way. I hope and pray that the next time we get pregnant we make it full-term, but since we don’t know what will happen I would rather go ahead and learn what I can about preemie care.

I'm so thankful that my husband thought that going shopping was a fun way to spend the day together, and I'm amazed at the great finds for the day! What I am most amazed and thankful for is that God knows exactly what my heart desires and He know exactly how everything is going to work out and He is providing for us every step of the way.
