This brick wall is near where we live. We pass by it on the way to Starbucks (also near where we live. Nice, hey?). Now that my son walks we have been getting him to walk everywhere. We figure he could use the exercise. I mean, he's a baby; so he's crazy and zooms about all day. So there's that exercise. But also he spend an inordinate amount of time sitting in his chair looking at his picture books (very cute, next blog I'll post a picture).
But where was I going with this? Right: the brick wall. Well, on our way to Starbucks he has started doing something really cute. When we walk by the brick wall he wanders over to it and stands in front of it. Yes. He poses. Like mommy. It's fricken' adorable.
Note: we are both wearing rompers. I think he is definitely pulling it off better than I am ;-). But he's just cuter. So it's to be expected. I also got another romper this summer I have yet to wear (shocking!). But I soon shall. It was made for me by Natasha of Required2BeInspired and I do believe it is in the closet calling my name.
I wore this outfit last night too...a tad bit differently. Different jewelry, different shoes, more eye make up than is acceptable during the day unless you are a teenager. Oh, and right: Winner's Final Clearance is on now. And speaking of teenagers: they're wrecking it for me. At least that's my theory. Because the Winter clearance is SO MUCH BETTER. And I figure that's because in the Winter there aren't swarms of teenagers populating the malls getting all the good deals.
Still, it was a pretty good haul. Here is what I got so far:
Two floral skirts for five dollars each.
This romper, also five dollars.
A pair of skinny jeans I will be taking back because I can't bend over in them (and with a little one I am always bending over). They were also five bucks.
A floral tank for five.
A floral top for five.
A beige top for three.
A pair of knee socks for seventy cents.
A cream (very nice faux) leather vest for fifteen.
I think I may go back tomorrow evening, just because...I'm a compulsive sale shopper. Yes. I wonder what would ever happen if I went to a shopaholics anonymous meeting? I shudder at the thought! What if they cured me? !
Oh, and how about my new header? Or do you miss me staring at you?
