So I now work 3 hrs in the morning on Saturdays from 6 to 9 in addition to the 10 hr workdays (I have the option to work every other Saturday if I do a 6 hr shift, but I think for now the 3 hr shift is best; I do get paid overtime on everything over 40 hrs a week though so it's all worth it!). The cool thing? I finish work and get home just in time for the thrift/antique stores to open, meaning I still get to go pony hunting on the weekends!

Last Friday I finally got my driver's license, and today marks the first time I've ever driven anywhere alone. I was nervous but it went quite well, and I made out like a bandit with today's finds!

SO to start things off, I have some exciting news. I got a really great deal on my very first Mountain Boy pony, Sunburst <3 He's got some flaws, but I'm not a picky collector and he was well worth the price. That's right, I'm finally getting my Mountain Boy set kicked off, after drooling over them for close to fourteen years! I am so excited, I can hardly wait for him to get here!

And firstly for photos, not a find, but a buy! I bought a Stranger Things Applejack from Pumpkin_Tart and she arrived yesterday. I am stoked! When I first saw her I instantly wanted her (AJ's my all-time fave), but of course since I personally won't shop at Target, I had to wait for a bit for her to show up elsewhere. She was well worth the wait! Gosh, her mane and tail are gorgeous. I really wanna give her a spa day but I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Next, we have my two store buys, two CMC Series 4 blind boxes. I got seapony Fluttershy and Spike! Fluttershy's little flamingo float is just adorable, and I love the little Spike as well <3

And now, my finds for today! At our local antique store I found an entire box of LPS at $1 each. When I started rooting through it, I realized there were a ton of blind bag ponies! I ended up getting like $13 worth of blind bags/one cat LPS that I've been wanting for awhile! From top to bottom, left to right: Beachberry, Firecracker Burst, Diamond Mint, Lilac Hearts, Sunset Shimmer, Strawberry Sunrise, Sweetie Blue (I've been looking for her for awhile!), Sugar Grape, Mosely Orange, Flash Sentry, Sunny Rays Wave 10, and the one LPS I got.
