I received a box of clothes from thredUP last week and can't wait to show you guys! They have trendy, practically new clothes for a fraction of the retail price. Plus, you can sell your clothes and get credit back. Being the cheapskate I am, I love me some secondhand clothes. I like to feel I'm helping the clothing at a time.

And maybe I convinced Chase that we needed to go to the mall so I could wear my "new" shirt because it's a million degrees outside, and then he ended up trying on and buying clothes (not me for once) so win-win!

Big cheeses to make my boy smile!! // Shirt shopping is rough for a tall, handsome drink of water.

The fam and I are headed up north to the Redwoods to escape the heat for 4th of July!! I'm so excited. I've never seen the big trees and it'll be nice to be away from the city and my laptop for a little. Although I can't cut myself off entirely from technology... I'm bringing my tablet and phone. WHAT.

Stay cool, 'Murica. I'll be back..

    Most of my clothes are secondhand. To the point that I have to REALLY want something to buy brand new.
