Thanks so much for your kind words and well wishes regarding Sadie’s surgery this morning. And thank you for opening up and sharing a little bit about your experiences with lumps on your pets. Apparently we all have some very lumpy, bumpy critters!
I heard back from Sadie’s vet just before 1 p.m. and her surgery went really well. She’s still a little groggy at the moment, but I can pick her up at 3:30 p.m. I hope to awkwardly smother her in snuggles as I try to void her sutures really soon!
After working for a few hours at Starbucks this morning, I drove across the street to Plato’s Closet resale shop to try to make a little bit of money off of the clothes I cleared out of my closet last Sunday.
Plato’s Closet ended up taking a pair of jeans, two belts, a scarf and two pairs of shoes. I got $30 for everything which made me awfully happy since I was anticipating a grand total of $5.
I am planning to send the rest of the clothes to Twice, a neat website that blog reader Sarah told me about. According to their website, you ship your clothes to them using one of their prepaid labels. Twice then makes an offer on all or some of the items. You can accept the offer or, if you choose not to, you can pay $5 for return shipping or Twice will donate the unwanted items to Goodwill for free.
Neat, huh? I’ll let you know how it goes!
While I waited for an offer on my clothing at Plato’s Closet, I walked down the strip mall to TJMAxx and did a little Christmas shopping. I found a few things for some of the loved ones on my list, so it was a successful trip.
As I browsed around, a bright red blazer caught my eye.
I’ve wanted a bright blazer for quite some time now, but whenever I try one on, I cannot help but feel like a little girl trying to look like an adult.
This blazer was a little different than other blazers because of some ruching on the arms which made it feel a little less professional and a little more fun.
It was also slightly more tailored, so it didn’t feel as boxy. I ended up buying it since it was pretty cheap but I have the receipt handy just in case I get home and change my mind. We shall see!
For lunch today, I popped into Earth Origins and took advantage of their salad bar.
Salad bar salads are always so much better than the salads I make for myself at home. I love piling tons of different toppings on my salads and really enjoy all of the different flavors and textures.
Before driving home, I walked next door to buy a pecan chocolate chip cookie from Betty Cakes.
They’re so darn delicious.
Hoping these next 90 minutes fly by so I can pick up my little cone head pup!

- Jacki: “I’d love to try the black bean burgers. I tried making my own and they fell apart terribly. My husband wouldn’t touch them with a 10 ft pole so it’s not something I’m going to spend the time making from scratch to prepare just for myself as it makes too much. I love the sweet/savory combinations…that looks really good!”
