I am in love.....

AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! I am having another Goodwill freak out! I LOVE YOU!!!!
Anyways, yesturday my mom and I went to a different goodwill, and apperantly every monday at 2:00 they have an auction for more expensive items. (purses, vases, type writters)

So I went there just before 2 and got to stay for the auction.

And can you guess what I saw!??!??! A RALPH LAUREN BLUE AND YELLOW TOTE BAG!! ( it still had the tag on for $90.00)

I actually had just seen one of these, that this girl was carrying in some store, and I was like LOVE IT!
Anyways It was $13 then this old guy bid (I really do not know why he wanted a womans tote bag but any-whooo.) $14, I bid $15, he bid $16, and I bid $17. Then he was like, ohh she can just take it. And I was like "thank you soo much!" and he was like "*grin*" But that was the most excitement of the whole auction, it was usually just one person bidding at a time, so nothing drastic.

Then after a couple minutes he came up to my mom and was like "did you see the tag still on it?" and my mom was like "Really!?? the tags still on it?" and then I came up and he said "you know the only reason I came to goodwill today was for that bag" (And I was standing there feeling guilty for winning it. But then I was like "maybe he is just trying to give me some guilt treatment.") "Well thank you for letting me get it!" then he left. Should I feel really bad about this? He didn't look like a hobo or anything. He was actually pretty well dressed.
Yesturday our church had a "teacher symposium." (It wasn't for just our church, it was open for any teachers) My mom has taught home schooled kids and she subs for my science class sometimes. It was intresting although I didnt get to sit in through the whole thing, I had a lot of school work to do. It was mainly about, different ways you could teach your class to make it more interesting for them, and yourself! It was really good.

I am probably supposed to be doing school but i had to let out some craziness, and what better place to do it then on a blog!?!?

What a super cute bag! I think he probably just wanted to sell it on ebay or something--no reason to feel bad! He could have bid more :0)

Caroline said...
