Well, I didn’t mean to leave you hanging for so long on the results of Wednesday’s Thrifted or Grifted post, but even now, with the “big” reveal, I feel a little silly since I don’t even know what the poll results were.

Why? Well, I left it up so you could see for yourself there in the left-hand upper corner. Do you see what I see? (do you see what I seeeeeee?)

16 votes. Okay, folks, we average more like 250-300 votes. Plus, at some point on Wednesday, it said 70. Then it said 22. Then it was back up to 60. And then back down to 35. And then it ended at 16.

So, apparently, the poll widget had a really bad day. A really bad, really confused day.

Which means that I have no idea which outfit y’all thought was 100% thrifted (unless I go by the general consensus from the comments, and that was A).

So, I’ll just tell you:

thrifted or grifted collage 

Top: Old Navy/Goodwill, $3
Skirt: Charlotte Russe/GW, $4
Shoes: Wet Seal/GW, $5
Earrings: GW, $2
Belt: Merona/GW, $0 (came with some pants)
TOTAL: $14
Top: Gap, $10
Skirt: Forever 21, $17
Shoes: Kenneth Cole Reaction, $12
Earrings: ???
Belt: Came with skirt
TOTAL: $39

Both of those pictures crack me up because I look like I’m busting a move in the thrifted outfit, and I’m giving the toothiest, fakest-looking grin ever in the grifted one.

I guess no matter what I wear, where I got it, or what I paid for it, I can still be a goofball.

So…were you right?  Even if you were, I guess we’ll never know whether you were in the majority. (Apparently, I’ll need to sweet-talk Paula the Poll Widget next time to make sure she doesn’t go all haywire on me again).

Oh, and how is everyone doing on your 30-day Husband Encouragement Challenge?

It took me a while to pray through everybody’s name the other day, there were so many of you! Yay!

(Click on over if you don’t know what I’m talking about; there’s still time to join in!). I don’t think I included the link to the email reminder sign-up yet, so if you want to get the challenges sent straight to your inbox, you can sign up here.

It’s going great over here! Of course, it’s only been two days, but after Day 1, Shaun brought home these:

gerbera daisies

I thought maybe he was doing his own version of the challenge in response to my post, but it just turns out he was being extra thoughtful for no good reason (or maybe in response to my schmoopiness??!) because he hadn’t even read my post yet, and I hadn’t told him I was going to do it.

Either way, I love them!
