thrifty threads: closing day

I finally located the camera in a moving box, buried safely in a crib sheet. Thanks, whichever sweet friend of ours did that on moving day! When I got it plugged it in, I couldn’t help but smile at the photos from the evening we closed on the farmhouse. We brought all of the kids over to hang out while we entertained guests – a chimney inspector, a security system sales rep, a cleaning crew, and our realtor.

These shots of Ames Emmanuel were my favorite, by far…

*all items bought on clearance
  1. You are so lucky to find Cons on clearance! I just ordered yellow ones for my little girls yesterday. They cost a fortune, but I could only find 1 place online that had them in their size, and I was set on yellow. Maybe I shouldn’t be so picky next time.

    • It’s okay to be picky! Those things last forever. We’ve bought two pairs at full price and they’ve made it through all three little pigs.

  2. Congratulations on your new home. We’ve only bought once (our current home) and after going through the process we can honestly say we hope we never have to do it again! I hope the same for you! :)

    • I’m staring at boxes thinking that I might never do this again! Hope you’re settling in nicely.

  3. I love that you said you got them all on clerance, you’re my kind of mama

    • A sale ain’t a sale until it’s CLARENCE. My husband refers to it as a man’s name ;)

    • Someday, hopefully! We’ll need it around here.
