Thrifting the Day Away

Friday Poot, my mother, and I took a road trip to Springfield, MO. Scott had to spend the day in their library doing research for a paper he is writing. While he studied my mom and I hit the town for some thrifting!

Isn't my mom a doll?? We had a great time spending the entire day together!

Springfield is filled with some amazing stores. I feel in love with these two living rooms:

Some picture while we thrifted for the perfect item:

We took a little break for lunch and meet up with Chesley. What a doll! She was exactly how she is on her blog and I just loved getting to finally meet her. Chelsey was one of the first blogs I subscribed to when I started blogging. She has a great sense of humor and we have so much in common. I really hope that we are able to get together again soon! Thanks Chelsey for taking time out to hang with Two Poots for awhile!

(I was on a caffeine high at this point...ha! I had already consumed two huge coffees and two teas! Yikes!)

It was a very successful day thrifting too!! Here is all my loot:

I also picked up two new albums to add to my collection:

So stoked that Poot is taking me to see them this Thursday!! Woot Woot!!

All in all it was the perfect day!
