Never have I known (or wanted to know) how easy it can be to shoplift. People are devious and cunning when it comes to stealing. They think they are clever and creative but retailers already know and have figured out all of their schemes. Unfortunately, corporate retail requires sufficient proof seen by a manager to accuse.
Sometimes it's who you expect and other times they smile innocently and make you think twice. I understand the holidays and all days currently for most people are rough and tight, but just get a grip and GET A JOB! earn your own money.
I swear I could tell you story after story of people who have known to shoplift but most of the time we can't accuse them and can't catch them. MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL. seriously.
A few finds I have a crush on...
THIS SWEET PHONE.
THIS LOVELY LAMP
and don't forget my 25% of all merch this month special at nifty thrifty owl!

I'm in love with all of these chairs. I really enjoy the contrast in aesthetics from classic to unique to bold to simplicity.
Here are the links to the chairs.

AND I've thought of an interesting poll to take. There are no two chicken strips alike from two different restaurants.
So which fast food restaurant has the best chicken strips? (chicken STRIPS, not nuggets)

BUT it's all worth it. Roscoe is loving, so cute and quick to learn. He already knows how to sit, lie down, shake and roll over! (though, also... quite the A.D.D. pup)
and why it is extremely hard to take a picture of him lately that is not blurry...
Something I'm sad to say that I've been seeing every day: A car wreck.
OH & ALSO I just got a part time sales associate position at Urban Outfitters in the French Quarter!
Take Note of this sweet deal:

I don't know how all of my profit is not going to go right back in to that store...
Things I want right now:
Thanks to those who have participated in my polls. I suppose they will remain extremely inaccurate until I get more readers and voters. ;-) but they are still fun!

So, in these things I've been a bit M.I.A. - including my online store, blogging, and things of that nature.
But the good thing is I have some great opportunities. No final decisions yet. But huge life changes are coming.
So fortunately, yet unfortunately, I will continue to be a bit M.I.A. for a little while longer...
But no worries, I will be back.
What's your favorite color? Take the poll to the right!
Mine is Teal.
Last poll: Sour Apple won over Grape 9-3

Perhaps you have already, or are about to NOTICE the poll I have on the right side of my page. It asks the?, "if you had to choose between sour apple or grape flavored candy, which would you choose?"
I prefer Grape, personally. BUT my husband prefers sour apple.
See, grape nor sour apple is either of our favorites. I mean, usually, everyone's first choice would be strawberry, cherry, or watermelon. So, the question intrigues interesting results. I've polled people at work, and it's fun to watch people think about it. Sometimes it's instant; sometimes they have to think about it. Sometimes they hate both so much; they cannot answer.
DOES ANYONE KNOW THE SECRET???
to folding FITTED sheets?
I HATE TIME. (but I do love this CLOCK)
And somehow, you run out of time.
If time was for sale, I'm sure I could not afford it.
We've decided that we want a Mini Australian Shepherd.
Aren't they so beautiful!?
(this is just a few of many google images i've been perusing through)
They are bred smaller to do well in apartments, but still need lots of exercise. We will be in shape! BUT sadly, It will be six months or more before we can afford one. I hope we are blessed to find one to rescue from a nearby pound. (& a redhead would fit in with the family...)

So there it is.
The following are pictures that my husband and I took around town in search for the notorious Papyrus.
Seriously. I can barely look at it anymore.

One day, probably not sooner than later (unfortunately), we will be launching our own personal website. We have also been pondering changing the name. Nifty Thrifty Owl describes some our merch but it also puts us in a box. And we want to be able to expand. Re-branding can be kind of scary since it takes so long for your name to get known... But it's a good idea, no?
