We have been doing a lot of shopping lately!! Between the three big kids all being in school, plus DD3 being in preschool 2 mornings/week, it's been amazingly freeing. So much easier to run errands than it has been in a long, long time. Like since pre-kids. I've never had a 3 year old without also still having a one year old before.
Yesterday DD3 and I were out all day doing stuff together b/c it's so easy with just one 3 year old. We went to lunch at a fun pizza place, too. Today, I had my 3 hours totally free while she was at preschool. I had a mammogram (ugh) but then went to TJ Maxx and had awesome luck. On the downside, it was super embarrassing b/c i had forgotten to pay my bill (which was only like $50!!!), which I never, never do (like seriously I don't know if I have ever done that before), and my card was declined! Oh my gosh. So embarrassing. But anyway, I bought like 4 tops and 2 pairs of jeans, and a jacket, and got like 5 shirts last time I was there. I really, really needed a wardrobe update so this is terrific. I love TJ Maxx.
We are having family photos taken on 9/30 so I have been shopping like crazy for outfits for everyone, too, and have tons to return once we decide what fits and what we are all wearing. We're going with some mix of navy/cream/browns/golds.
