The Artist Guild: Non Related Blog Photos

It's that time again for another Artist Guild post, Samantha is hosting this amazing community of like minded creative people. If you want to join click here!

Josh and I have spent A LOT of time hiking this summer, and we even took our dog Monkey on our last one. It is one of our favorite things to do together, it's free, it's a great workout and it gives us time to connect with each other while disconnecting from the tech part of our life.

These are some pictures from our last hike up South Mountain, about a half an hour from our house. We thought it was going to be an easy hike (it was only two miles) and we even thought about doing a little extra up another trail when we were through. That was before we hiked about half the hike up stairs.... man we were exhausted.

We literally had to lay on the deck near the waterfall to get this family selfie, Monks refused to sit up so we all had to lay down!

What have you been doing this summer?

A Mark Of A Good Day- Thrift Store Finds

I scored so big on my thrift store finds this weekend. My bundle included:

New Gap Pants
Gap Dress
Two books
Starbucks Alice and Olivia Mug
Kate Spade Mug
2 Anthro Skirts
A White pair of jeans
Banana Republic Shirt
Plaid Scarf
Target Running Jacket
Green J Crew Top
Green Top (no tags)

For a grand total of 37 dollars!!!

One of my friends and I took a tour of all the Goodwill's in the Lake Norman area, and I took no pictures, which I think is the mark of a really fun time. Since starting to live more simply I am buying more intentionally and I am much more selective when it comes to thrift shopping. My friend Tamara heard a woman at Goodwill saying " Do I need it, love it, will I wear it?" and I think that is so important to say. Otherwise you are just throwing your money (no matter how little) away. I will be styling a couple of these items for a Teacher Outfit Tuesday post (possibly tomorrow).

 What is the best thing you have ever found at a thrift store?
