the mister and i both took the day off work to hang out together, which was a present in itself. he took me out to breakfast at our favorite greasy spoon, and then we hit up a few estate sales since i NEVER have a thursday off to go to sales on the first day. they were a bust, but i haven't been to an estate sale in months so it was still fun to go.
then we headed out for a day of junkin. here are some of the treasures i came home with:
an amazingly obnoxious lime green coat with a fur collar that fits perfectly! it's in mint condition and it's seriously the best shade of green. it's even better in person!
this vintage valentine for a "rootin' tootin' guy"
this funny picture card about "pitching the woo." what a great phrase. i almost love it as much as "balling the jack."
and finally, the miss priss sugar bowl to add to my growing collection...
josh also got me a bunch of awesome gifts! i was lucky to marry a very thoughtful gift-giver ; )
pile 'o' gifts! the chocolates were for valentine's day ; )
a nauga monster necklace!
this tiny package of beatles hair pomade came as an extra in the other item josh was actually buying me...it's pretty ridiculous, still!
little richard record! ooooooooh!
i came home to a package from my new york dead boys friend, jeff. inside was some pulp novels, dvds of the mc5, richard and the young lions and some old 60s music shows, and a shirt. check out that badass james brown shirt! whatta pal.
i got this hilarious card from my cousin, whose little girl i nanny. HA!
and finally, my tickets for the solo mike nesmith concert arrived on my birthday..what a nice present! oh, did i even tell you?!?! mike nesmith of the monkees came out of hibernation in 2012 to tour with the remaining monkees (making a lifelong dream of mine come true) -- and now he is doing a string of solo dates and I WILL BE THERE! so stoked.
to sum it up, i'm 31 and life is good ; )
