High Five for Friday-Turtles and Thrifting and Shopping, Oh My!

It’s that time of the week again….HIGH FIVE for FRIDAY!  Love that. 
Per usual, I’m linking up with Lauren @ From My Grey Desk Blog 
We are knee deep in soccer season around here….Mr. Man (the orange #7) is doing an awesome job.  I love that he picked #7 for his jersey cause he’s 7.  He likes things to make sense and for the universe to tie together neatly.  Just like his mama.  
I snagged this adorable Star Print Cotton Trench from Ann Taylor Loft last month and it’s finally gotten cool enough to wear it.  I adore it!  It’s so cute and fits so nicely.  It looks way more expensive than it was, I think.  There are limited sizes left but they are an additional 40% off at the moment if you’re interested.  You’ll need to click the link to see the fabric close up-I know this image is not so hot.  I would have taken my own picture wearing it but I haven’t showered yet and I’m not so hot at the moment either and no one wants to see that.  Trust me. 

Meet Shelly the Turtle!  He’s our newest friend around here.  He’s the former class pet of one of the Kindergarten classes at my school.  They were forced to give him away when the school board ruled that no classrooms could have reptiles or amphibians as class pets {Big Meanies!!} so I agreed to give him a new home.  Mr. Man and Miss A were beyond thrilled!  The kindergarteners are going to send Shelly letters and Mr. Man has agreed to write back on behalf of Shelly.  I love feel good educational projects.  I’m not sure how I feel about stinky turtle aquariums but that has the hubster’s name written all over it so we’re all good…
I stopped by a big used children’s clothing sale at a local church this morning on a whim and nabbed a bunch of great finds, including this like new Hanna Andersson play dress for only $5!  If you know anything about kids’ clothes you know that’s a huge score! 
I earned a $20 reward at Old Navy (thank you back to school shopping!) so I just ordered this dress
for $19.94!  I’ve been seeing these striped jersey dresses everywhere so I’m excited that I found this one and can try out this look on the cheap.  I’m thinking of pairing it with some brown boots like I saw here
on Pinterest. What do you think?

Have a super fantastic weekend!
