inspiration monday: jackpot

the inspiration
Maria Menounos

megan bird



skirt ~ H&M
tank ~ TJ Maxx
shoes ~ thrifted
necklace ~ Forever 21

nora bird



tank ~ Urban Outfitters
shoes, skirt ~ Marshalls
necklace ~ gift from mother-in-law

This weekend, we are participating in a huge blogger garage sale (locals, see the Facebook invite here), and I asked the kids if they would help me make sure all the purses I was selling were empty. As an incentive, I told them that any money they found in the purses was theirs to keep. 

A few minutes went by and Eva ran upstairs screaming "JACKPOT!" and I asked what the deal was.

"Mama, we were cleaning out a purse and we found two twenties and a ten."

I guess I didn't know I had it, so it really wasn't a loss. Plus, we plan on buying some anniversary ice cream with it, so it's really a win/win!
xoxo,

  6. Haha, that's always my big fear when I get rid of purses, I worry if I got everything out of them! I am so sad to miss the big sale this weekend -but then again, being on a shopping ban it's probably for the best, lol.

  13. Wow that would excite me too! I would yell jackpot if I found that in my purse! I remember I used to be allowed to go through my dad's coat pockets and keep any change I found. I never did find that much!
    Your outfits are great! I coulda/shoulda done this one! I somehow missed it. Dang! Maybe tomorrow if I get enough energy.
    The garage sale sounds great! I love a garage sale and a blogger one would be awesome, I'm sure!
    xoxo

  17. Like sugary and cream! You two nailed this look together! I once bought a used VW bug and found a little Baggie of pot under the seat. True Story! Yes. Clean out those purses.

  22. NICE! I did that to myself last year. When I got my winter coat out this year there was a $20 bill in the pocket and a note that said "You will need this." from me. HAHA
