high on consignment shopping with a groupon thursday

i'm also high on coke zero and power yoga and mockingjay right now (it's been a good night) but we're here to talk about thrifting, ahem, and for the first time in FOREVER i actually went shopping somewhere other than CostCo or Target! as of lately that is major cause for an exclamation point. so anyways... last weekend, before we went shopping at CostCo, i gathered up my childrens and printed off a groupon i bought months ago for this little Eugene kids consignment store called my little children and i... went... shopping! it was awesome.
for a total out-of-pocket cost of $47 (including a $30 gc i paid $15 for - whoot to the groupon!) i got sunhats for both kiddos, a new sling wrap (red with white flowers), brand new freaking cute hanna andersson tights, socks, a kimono, onesie, leggings, dresses...
... "character" pajamas for the Ottobot (which is a whole side story, or interior drama or something that i just want to mention because Ot is obsessed with character clothing and i, for the most part, can't stand character clothing and it's this bad scene. i would never stop him from wearing what he wants but can i just say, "ugggggh! and then throw up a little by your feet.) and a pair of like really cute, linen-blend gap khakis that hopefully will fit Ot by the fall. not pictured: we also picked up a Blue's Clues storybook. that's a lot of adorable loot for roughly $4/item! i'm feeling pretty jazzy about the whole thing.

it is funny, though, getting out and about with two kids. on the weekends we usually have a solid day or so where it's just me and Ot and Et and we almost always have an errand to run, like CostCo or Target or on a really thrilling day Trader Joe's. at first i was really intimidated to take them out, just overwhelmed by the idea of coordinating car seats, wearing Loretta, hoisting Otto into shopping carts while wearing Loretta, what if Ot needed to go potty? what if Et had a blowout? or needed to nurse? the mind reels. i was sweating it big time. but life demanded that i get over it - just go for it - and you know what? so far it's been totally manageable to take these two out on our weekend errands. i was really proud of us for braving the consignment shop and what a toe-tapping success it was!

so i'm linking up with Mandy this week over at The Haps -->
i'm not positive this counts as pure blooded thrifting but it's tangential thrifting at least, right? (ps. i don't know if i used that word right, haha!). maybe sometime soon i'll brave a real thrift store with these two? eek. maybe.
