Saturday was an absolute blast. Mom, two of her friends and I went shopping in St. Louis for a girl's day (which none of us ever treat ourselves to). It was so terrific to spend time together and just have a leisurely day. We actually didn't make it into too many shops, but here's what I found:
For Evy: 6 or so outfits that are in impeccable condition. I got them at an upscale consignment shop, and the total was $24!!! They were having a great sale, and I got so many adorable things. Also pictured: my first official container of Dreft detergent. Let the baby washing begin!
I treated myself to a shirt from Anthropologie. I have always adored that store, but have never been able to afford anything on a whim. While in St. Louis, I went into the sale room and picked up this adorable shirt and tried it on. Not only did it look good on me (a shock), I know it's the kind of style that will fit once I'm not pregnant anymore. And it was on sale---perfect! I also got 3 pairs of shoes. Two are clog-style, which is my go-to shoe this season it seems. They're just really comfy with jeans, and I can't do a high heel right now. I also found a good pair of walking shoes (the white pair) for Disney and other miscellaneous outings with Evy that will require a cute comfy shoe. Good finds!
Sunday was great. I snapped some pictures with the new star attraction, Penny. She's my family's new black lab, and we all love her. She's just adorable.
The weather was spectacular all weekend. I was trying to catch the color of the leaves, but I don't think it came out. But I'll include this picture of the view from my parent's house. It's just gorgeous.
I also can't forget to include the star basketball player and wonderful little sister. Here's Punky (she stole my rocking chair for awhile):
Today I had to leave to come home, but I had a great morning with my parents at home. Daddy had a lunch meeting, so Mom and I went to grab a bite to eat and then returned to Hobby Lobby to get my chandelier. Guess what? It had been marked 50% off!!!!!! It was meant to be. I love when the Lord hands you a little present like that. This isn't the best picture, but here it is:
Being in Cape definitely made me excited to live there. Everytime I visit I always feel 100% at home (well, except for missing Kurt!). I always feel spoiled when I visit my family, mainly because I love the time we get to spend together. Thankfully I'll see them again not too long from now for the Branson trip.
Speaking of trips, we're gearing up for Disney! I ordered some new books from Amazon to pass time in the car. I also ordered filtered water bottles so we can just use the Disney water fountains for water but it still taste good----way cheaper than buying drinks everytime we need them! Next on the list is a neck pillow for Kurt.....I was told that I need to share at least a little of the driving so he can take a nap :o) I can't believe it's nearly here.
Have a great week---love to my family!
