With every good pending trip, the big countdown is on! So this week will pretty much be a ‘getting ready for Lucketts‘ kinda week.
I’ve dusted off my suitcases and ran into town today, stocking up on stuff I’ve run out of. (why does it take a trip to spur us on to restock?! I’ve been out of this stuff for weeks!)
I’ve also booked my fav default hotel near the airport for the night before to #1. Avoid driving in the dark, #2. Avoid getting lost while driving in the dark, #3. Catch a little more sleep and #4. Can have time for a Starbucks as my flight loads. All wins in my book!
So here’s something super fun while we wait for all this great stuff to unfold.
This here is a fun Hometalk Lucketts Twitter Chat, talking about all things thrifting! And here’s something super cool… if you RSVP prior to the party, you have a chance on winning some thrifting dollars!
If you have never joined a Twitter Chat before, no fear! I’ve written 2 must reads on how to get set up. It’s super, SUPER easy!

If you love your thrifting, I think you’ll love this roundup with some cool ideas on what to do with some cool finds! Curated by the amazing Heather aka At The Picket Fence from Hometalk.
In other news, I’ve been a super good girl lately and bumped up my bedtime to a reasonable hour. Know what happens when you do that? You get up earlier all on your own! Who knew.
And with that… it’s a few minutes past my bedtime, so I must run! I’m so proud of me…

I’m sure you are excited! Smart move to stay near the airport! The party looks like fun too. My Twitter account was hacked repeatedly, even after changing the password over and over….I finally gave up! But, I’m sure you’ll have LOTS of activity with thriftiness dollars available ! Looking forward to beating through the crowd (maybe) to say “hello” at Lucketts!!
Sounds like you need to fire up a new account Lorraine! And can’t wait to meet you! 🙂
I have switched to bloglovin to read the blogs I follow. A few moved over, but do not show up on my bloglvin reader. Yours is one of them?!!! I have you on instagram, so I didn’t notice it at first. I have emailed them, but no reply yet. Just thought you might want to know.
Hi Donna- I don’t have a url, does that mean I can’t participate in the twitter party?
Hi Julie! You will need a Twitter account to participate, but you may be able to watch it without participating without an account. It’s very easy to set one up, I vote go for it even if it’s for the odd party. 🙂
The Twitter Chat is May 9th at 9 PM. EST. So, if it’s 9 PM on the East Coast, it is 7 PM Central Time?? I always get confused. Maybe there is an easy way to remember the time zones or a website or possibly a phone App out there that can help me remember what time it is on each coast. I’m sure I am not the only one who has issue with this? Or am I? Thank you for the Invite 🙂
I’m just as bad at this, Laura Jo. I just google what it all means. 🙂 I believe central would be at 8 and pacific is at 6. But maybe google to be sure!
Hi Donna! Thanks for the Twitter Chat invite. This will be my very first Twitter Chat … I hope I can figure it out 🙂 On my way to read your posts 🙂
Great advice and excited by your twitter party. Love those and love thrifting. What more can you need? Good luck with your trip to Lucketts. Good idea to stay overnight at an airport hotel before you leave. We currently live over 2 hours from the airport and it is so stressful driving and trying to make the plane the same day! Have a great trip!
YES! I’m about that far from mine too so this is my way to survive it all. 🙂
Donna, have a great time in Lucketts! So mad I won’t be here to meet you- am headed up to NYC for the National Stationery Show. I get back on Tuesday night- if you are still around Wednesday I would love to show you some of my favorite places to thrift! Which airport are you flying into?
Ah, how fun! I’ve rsvp’d and going to do my best to make it! It’s more difficult on the west coast when the kiddos are needing dinner and their bedtime routine. I always learn something when I join the fun though! 😀
Excellent blog here! Also your site loads up fast! What host are you using?
