I've been eyeing a pair of wide legged corduroy pants at J. Jill since the fall catalog came out in August. They started out at some ghastly amount--somewhere around $80--and were reduced to about $30 when I went into the store to try them on. But $30 is a lot for me to spend on pants.
Today I went into the thrift store looking for jeans for the boys when what should apear but a pair of brown cords in my size! (Of course they need to be shortened, but that's nothing new.) Yeaaaa! And for $1.50.
I then wandered through the household area and happened upon a cake plate that matches one I already have--nothing like a matching set when serving deserts--and it also for $1.50.
But wait, there's more! When I got up to the register the cashier announced that ladies pants were half off today. Yippie! A pair of pants and a cake plate for $2.25. I love it when that happens! It reminds me that my Heavenly Father knows my inmost thoughts and even my petty desires. And sometimes, just like with me and my kids, it pleases Him to make me happy.
