One More Picture of Fall

From earlier today, over by CBN and Regent University in Virginia Beach.

For this one, I was stopped at the light at Centerville Turnpike south turning west onto Indian River Road. The picture here doesn't do this tree's colors justice. It was amazing! The west sides of all the trees and shrubs were starting to look like they were on fire at this point in the day, right around 4:30 PM and the light was starting to change for the day.

Fall Has Arrived

I drove from Norfolk to waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay the hell out to Chesapeake earlier today to visit a patient. This was the autumn scenery along the way. Yes, I snapped pictures with my cell phone while I was driving, with the phone resting on the steering wheel. But you see there's no cars coming towards me.

But damn, safety aside....wasn't it pretty out???

Results of the Shopping Trip

For $21.71, I ended up getting 2 pairs of jeans, 1 pair of khaki colored corduroy pants, 1 button down dark red velour top (it reminded me of Christmas), 1 pink striped button down top (marked down to $0.75), and 2 pairs of shoes. Yeah, I'm finally starting to pay more attention to the price tags and I tried the pants on first. :)

The shoes are a new deal for me. I cleaned through my shoe box earlier today and found 2 pairs I had forgotten I had, plus I'm thrifting 3 pairs away, so I felt justified. The shoes I came across were in really good shape, so I didn't mind the idea of someone else's feet being in them. When I came home with them, I stuffed the toes of each pair with dryer sheets and set them on the sweater rack in my dryer on high for 15 minutes. I don't know if that will do anything to them other than settle my mind. :)

They are wildly similar to each other in appearance.

A pair of black velvety chunky heeled Unlisted shoes. It looks like Amazon sells Unlisted wedge sandals for anywhere from $30-$50. I think these were $4.99. I haven't looked at my receipt lately.

A pair of navy blue satin finish chunky heeled Signature shoes. These were marked down from $2.99 to $0.75 as well. I can't find these on Amazon.

Sunday Thoughts

Here's your morning laugh, courtesy of Stacey at Owl Obsessed Oddity. It's a song from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis called "Thrift Shop" and it's completely awesome! It struck me especially funny today because I plan on hitting the local thrift shop for a few things.

Also, here is your morning sugar RUSH. Have you heard of cinnamon roll waffles? Take a package of cinnamon rolls, heat up your waffle maker, and press two rolls into each side of the maker. Let them cook for just a little less time than waffles actually take to make, pop them out, drizzle the frosting over them, and you're good to go!

A word of advice though: go light on the frosting and you don't need additional syrup. You're going to get such a sugar rush that you don't need anything else for breakfast. :)
