Your post was like thrift porn. THAT is what I'm dreaming about tonight!
QUESTION - I keep hearing cheers for nice 150-160 heartrates. My baby's heartrate was 145 - anyone else?
Ha. I was totally shocked that we did so well. I usually score one thing in an afternoon. I was so psyched! I think part of it is that we just had a new Goodwill open up in North Tacoma, and there are quite a few familes with money around here who are probably donating, plus not many people know about it yet, so - bargains! Dd1 actually found one of the tops for me - she was pretty happy I liked it and bought it, and of course that I am telling everyone she spotted it!
Have you been to the Bellevue Goodwill? Totally worth the trip! The designer clothes go for about $25 - expensive by Goodwill standards, but still... There is also a Salvation Army Thrift Store near the Mariner's stadium (pg brain - can't remember what it is called) anyway, it is small but they have some pretty nice things.
As for heartrates, I seem to remember at least one of my girls being in the 140s. Also, heartrate varies depending on what mom has been doing, what baby has been doing, etc. I think the only time to worry is if it is consistently below 120 or so.
