Today is my Friday. Yes, I know, how do I get so many days off in a year? I swear, working for healthcare can be a blessing and a curse. The blessings include outstanding benefits - one of which is our time off program. Even when I'm good about taking my time off, I continue to accrue more, so then I get close to my cap and well, that's where I've been at lately, so I am sneaking in another couple of days this week to have a nice little "spring break" if you will. I won't take anymore time until May, when I plan to have a garage sale and then after that it will be sometime this summer. I am most definitely not complaining though!
How adorable is my new vintage sweater from the fabulous Amanda's Salvaged Strawberry shop? She had put this on sale a few weeks back and I mentioned I wished I wasn't on a shopping ban so I could add it to my closet and then she kindly set it aside for me! She had it all ready for me at the Tandem Vintage sale this weekend. She's just the best. And this sweater just makes me smile, it's so springy and girly and fun.

Speaking of shopping bans, I'm technically done with mine. Some say that what you give up for Lent ends at Palm Sunday and some say it goes through Easter Sunday. Either way, I'm done. BUT what I'm not done with is trying to just take a real budget cautious approach to my shopping. I'm also only going to add pieces that I feel complete my wardrobe for the upcoming spring/summer. I have a small list of things I want and I'll slowly start looking for and adding them. We have some big home improvement projects coming up this spring and so I have to be better about my spending and even with thrifting I can let it get out of hand sometimes. Maybe I'll take a clue from some of my other favorite bloggers and start a monthly budget for myself starting in April here. We'll see how it goes!
