News Segment, Tanked, Goodwill Grand Opening, Gruene and a few Moments!

News Segment, Tanked, Goodwill Grand Opening, Gruene and a few Moments!

As we go through life it is the special moments that we remember.  Of course having teenagers it is becoming harder and harder for everyone to find the  time to be together, too enjoy those moments.  This past weekend Goodwill of San Antonio was celebrating a Grand Opening of one of their new stores and as one of their “Official Bloggers” I was invited to come to teach a workshop.   They also asked me to do the news segment on Saturday morning so I wanted to bring my girls along to model some thrifted items from Goodwill.  Everyone had reasons and excuses (football game, friends, sleepover, birthday party) to not come but finally everyone decided to join me.

It started out with a road trip from Houston to San Antonio Friday night being we had to be at KENS 5 News at 7:00AM.   Yes, it was a stressful morning starting out with showing up at the wrong address (the confirmation sheet had the wrong address) fortunately it was only 11 miles away to the TV station.   We got there and both Maddy and Sammy realized that while they were getting coffee in the lobby of the hotel, they had left their shoes  (GRRRRRRRRRRR).   We got to the back of the station and the intercom system to buzz us in was temporarily out of order.   Finally someone was leaving the station so we were able to get in the door.  Whew ….   Fortunately from then on everything went smooth!

The guys from “Tanked” on Animal Planet, were interviewed right before us so the girls got to meet them and get a picture with them.   They really, really liked Maddy in that leather dress 🙂

From here we quickly had breakfast, packed up, checked-out and drove to the Goodwill store for the blogger work shops I was a part of.   I will share more about that tomorrow but it was great to meet these ladies in person.   Of course we did some shopping in this fabulous new 14,000 square foot store!  Located at 3730 North Loop 1604 East (Loop 1604 and Bulverde Rd)

After the event we drove to San Marcus, where Maddy attends college, and had dinner before falling asleep by 10PM on a Saturday night!   We had a wonderful but slow morning, beginning with breakfast, working out, watching an old Disney movie, jump-start Maddy’s car (she left the lights on) and then headed to Gruene, Texas.

Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas!

Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas!

Gruene is one of those charming towns that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, you feel like you have gone back in time.   Gruene is definitely all things Texas, from the shopping to the music.   The oldest dance hall in Texas, Gruene Hall, is a must see!   You can walk everywhere in this pint sized town and live music can be heard in several locations.   During the summer months you can float the river in tubes!

This past weekend was one of the busiest that I have had in a long time but it turned out to be so much fun!   We had so many of those special moments, being silly and spending time together.

We had to head back Sunday night because “Too Cheap Blondes” had to film 2 segments with FOX on Monday morning.  You can see the girls had a fabulous time and took a much needed nap!

It was a long weekend!

Goodwill and your Dorm Room ~ Thrift Store Style!

Planning her college dorm room has been so much fun the past few months!  Both Maddy and I have spent hours on Pinterest looking for ideas.  Of course while thrifting we would pick up things here and there.   She decided to go with an eclectic mix of bright, yet subdued mix of colors.

If I would have EVEN tried to buy her a perfect “matching” room I think she would have died … that is soooo NOT COOL in college!

You would not believe how many people stopped by her room to “ooooh and aaahhhh” … they had not really planned on decorating but to do everything for way under a $100 is awesome!

(she just sent me a message, her friends want me to take them shopping to show them how to thrift!)

I will admit, when I drove up to this store my first impression was that it wouldn’t be that great …. I WAS SOOOOO WRONG!!!!!    I have to show you one of the most Fabulous finds ever!    They auction off their entire case of jewelry (or you can just purchase it for a flat rate, that price changes each time).   After seeing all this jewelry my mind went to Pinterest heaven, dreaming of all the ways to remake jewelry!!!!! 🙂     Soooo, my favorite find has to be the jewelry auction!!!!    and the tiered tray, just scroll down ….

 

This entire shelf is up for auction and it changes every couple of weeks! (it was at $75 the day I was there)

New York City!    (wow, I didn’t even notice that there is a Goodwill Van beside me!)

Wow!  What a blast!   Maddy and I just spent 5 wonderful days in New York.   We crammed in as much as we could possibly do and every minute was a moment to remember.

Then I spent 2 days thrift store shopping in San Antonio, as the official Goodwill blogger it is all part of my job … how cool is that!!!!

After visiting 6 stores, my vehicle was full, I had no more room and I had to go home!   They have some GREAT stores and I only made it to half of their locations.   I found some amazing housewares, I can’t wait to show you!

Last night I found out that ABC “Stretch your Dollar” wants us to do an upcoming segment and FOX also has asked us to come back.  Super excited about this!!!  I will keep you updated and post the segments when they air.

Now I have to catch up on things around the house today … beginning with 7 loads of laundry but I will post tomorrow!
