One Leg at a Time
I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday? I guess that’s a good thing.
Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday sort of evaporated into a blur.
Sunday I was domestic
Monday I bought a non-domestic
Tuesday, among other things, I went to Target because someone’s pants either have holes in the knees or are becoming too small.
We loaded up on pants
Pink, purple, aqua, pink and purple striped. Target dressing rooms and iPhone photography don’t mix apparently. Nor does Trader Joe’s + iPhone photography, but that’s another story.
And there were other pink things
The shoes are a little big, but the beauty of kids is that they grow. The shoes will fit in about October precisely when we’ll be experiencing some of our warmest weather of the year and when you cannot find sandals or slipon shoes, or knockoff Crocs, anywhere. I may have planned this.
Dora & Princess brushes make brushing more fun. Kind of with they had those for my teeth.
The whole event was much more giggly for her than I. Nothing quite like trying on clothes in a too small dressing room with a four year old. Pokey meets chaos meets inability to get in, get done, get out.
Oh well at least we giggled together and I kept repeating the phrase, “Honey, we put our pants on one leg at a time” as she tried to simultaneously jam her sweaty little feet through each of the tiny leg openings of the leggings and jeggings.
For me, I steered clear of the cute clothes and loungewear that I would have loved and stuck with the basics and things I know I needed more than another $16.99 Champion sports bra in hot pink. Although that would have been fun.
After Target, we came home and snacked on some fresh grapes that were on sale at the grocery store
Watermelon (which is beginning to go out of season I am fearing)
And we each had a White Chocolate Vanilla Marshmallow Cake Bar – 4 Layers
Talk about the way to a 4 year old’s heart. Or a mommy’s heart.
Thanks for the compliments and feedback on my last post, Food & Light: Favorite Images & Judging. And what you liked about the photos or why you liked the ones you said you did. Lots of you told me you like the water, the second picture of nuts, the hummus, or Diane’s hands in action.
And thanks for sharing your stories about being judged and what you do about it.
Also, yesterday Gina the Fitnessista posted a guest post of mine on her site that she had asked me to write about Prenatal Yoga. I realize not all of you are mothers, pregnant, and kids may be a long ways off for you, but perhaps it’s a good resource for someone you know or for that rainy day down the road. Also, I shared some of my background with yoga and what I did when I was pregnant with Skylar. <– Hard to believe that was 5 years ago already. Time.Flies.
Have you seen any cute new fall clothes lately? Do you tend to buy seasonally-based clothes, i.e. back to school in the fall, fall fashions, or new clothes in the spring?
I don’t tend to buy much anymore as fall approaches. It’s fun, but I just don’t partake in the retail thrills.
I wear the same things nearly year-round here in San Diego, I am not going back to school, I am cheap and don’t want to spend money on new clothes when I have a closet full of clothes, most of which I rarely wear and wear the same half dozen things over and over (as most of my blog pictures tend to prove!) but it’s always fun to browse and see what’s hot for fall or a new season.
But I won’t lie, with an unlimited budget I could really have lots of fun here.
And more fun here
Or something from here is always up my alley.
But can I borrow your credit card? Thanks.
Have you bought anything for fall? Or seen anything cute? <–wait, don’t tell me
P.S. I’m glad you’re excited about the Attune Foods Healthy Free Food Giveaway, too.
