Thrift Store Day

October 9, 2007 Leave a comment

Today was 50% off day at the thrift store; it is like that on all major holidays. Stephanie gets all crazy for these thrifting days. Her and kids took a trip down to Crystal today and found some really great stuff.

I haven’t seen all the clothes yet but I am sure she picked out the good deals, like she always does. With three growing kids, anytime we can get quality clothes at half off it is BIG bonus. I’m hoping she found some more red shirts and khaki pants for me as well.

The only thing I don’t want to see is the bill.

Suit Shopping With Stephanie

August 15, 2007 4 comments

Went shopping with Stephanie tonight for a suit. I have never bought a suit before but with a big interview next week and a couple weddings in the next year to officiate I figured it was time. We went to Kohl’s first, but decided to head to the Men’s Warehouse for some expert advice.

I had fun trying on some different styles and colors, before landing on a fairly traditional charcoal colored suit. We decided the charcoal would give me the most versatility with different dress shirt and tie colors and designs. The hardest part of the night was pulling the trigger on the checkbook; suits sure don’t come cheap.

I loved being in the store and wish that I could load up my closet on dress clothes. There is a certain feeling that I get when I dress up and I wish I had reason to do it more often. I guess I’ll have to get in a church someday where I can preach in a suit, which might be tough for a white guy like myself to do, as suits don’t seem to be the common white dude pulpit attire anymore.
