A Goodwill Shopper is Born

Today was a special day... it was a day to celebrate this girl Yes... she is 16 today She is the middle child, yet the word  &quo...

Today was a special day...
it was a day to celebrate this girl
Yes... she is 16 today
She is the middle child, yet the word 
"syndrome" does not describe her.
She speaks her mind.....
keeps herself in check.....
reaches out to others who may feel lonely...
One of her best features is her 
shopping demeanor,
she is my shopping buddy.
Today we traveled to Walmart,
 per birthday request
so she could shop for beauty products for her birthday present.
She loaded up on goodies....
lipstick, foundation, blush, bronzing powder, concealer, hairbrush and a shower cap....
yes...a shower cap(who wears those anymore?)
In my excited let's have more fun voice I said
 "oh let's stop at Goodwill on the way home!" 
She looked at me square in the eye and said "okay". 
I could hear the doubt in her voice, yet she agreed. Out of three girls I brought into this world at least I got one who likes to shop!
We went in and looked around. 
I knew what I was there for, I went straight to work digging in the jumbled mess of board games. About 20 minutes later with 2 games in my hand I went looking for her, I found her with clothes draped over her arm. Her skepticism of buying at Goodwill was diminishing. She went in to the dressing room to try them on and they all fit!

So here is what we got for $35.00.
 

I got a pair of leather shoes, two games, Scrabble & Scattergories in new condition, 2 cute brand new zip up fabric pouches, a collapsible fabric organizer, a leather like docking station for multiple electronics.

 Gabrielle got a pair of sweat pants, a new dri-fit shirt for running and a cute sweater.


I am proud to say my daughter is reborn.
 On the day of her birth 
we not only celebrated her,
we celebrated the birth of a Goodwill shopper.

I wanted to post a photo of her
posing in her new sweater but I think she hit her limit for posing.
But I will say I love and I like my teens. 
They bring me joy.
And Gabrielle truly is........ totes adorbs.....
