Going Bananas and a Fun Reader Find

I ran in the grocery store, yesterday, to pick up a few things and I only took my keys and my card in with me. As often happens, “a few things” turned into half a cart full and, sometime towards the end of my shopping trip, I suddenly realized that I wasn’t holding my card anymore. A credit card, people. Do you know how hard that could possibly be to find? I asked an employee, asked customer service, and started retracing my steps. Guys, I was almost crying trying to imagine all the places I could have set it down without thinking. It’s flat–it could have been on a shelf anywhere. Or in the freezer section? Oh my.

I found it in the bananas. For realz.

I must have set it down when I went to separate a bunch (Do you do that? I don’t need 7 bananas, just 3.). I’m so, so thankful I found it and found it quickly. But, y’all–that adds a whole new meaning to “going bananas”.

Moving on.

Alicia send me these pictures of her most recent amazing Goodwill purchase. As you may remember from her kitchen tour, Alicia is a serious Goodwill shopper, but this one takes the cake.



$5.99, my friends. What?! So cool.

Happy Wednesday (Happy May!)!

Enjoying the Good Life,



  1. oh my gosh! i’m laughing, but feel bad for you at the same time. losing a card is so stressful!

    and i LOVE that bag.

    random question: in your shopping trips, have you noticed certain goodwills to have better selections of certain things? for example, i went to one goodwill and found zero dresses i liked. i went to a different one just ten minutes down the road and found a ton of dresses worth trying on. or, do you think it’s just hit-or-miss?

    Some stores have better merchandise than others. Broad River Rd. consistently has good clothes–JCrew, Ann Taylor, etc. Garners Ferry also had a good selection–Target stuff with tags still on it and it looked like a dry cleaner must donate stuff that’s not picked up. Specific types of clothing might be hit or miss, but I think some stores have better selections than others.

    Oh, feel free to laugh! I think it’s hilarious.

  3. Loving that bag! Oh my lands…
