yesterday was quite a day. we woke up to frozen pipes - which meant no water. bummer. it really set back our plans for the day. jamil was heading to costco with the boys and i was going shopping for me with the girls.
while i was waiting for the water to come back on, i did my grocery order for the express lane at harris teeter. the site shut down for quite some time and then when it was time for me to checkout, i realized that you can not pick up the order on saturdays. so frustrated. i got the girls ready and then the water came back on so i could get a shower. jamil got the boys ready and they headed to costco with my dad. the boys were so excited to eat lunch at the snack bar there!
i was finished getting ready and nursing the baby when my mom and sister came over so we could head out for a day of shopping. we left our house at 2:00. we didn't get to the mall until almost 4:00. there was an accident on 85 and we sat in onlooker traffic forever. finding a parking space was ridiculous. finally we get one and get into the mall and of course everyone is starving so we eat at chili's. so we didn't begin shopping until close to 5:30. after going around the whole mall stopping in several stores, stopping to nurse the baby and then getting some cold stone ice cream we headed home at 9:30 pm. crazy long day.
this is the second or third time that i have been shopping for myself since the baby was born. and i every time i realize that i hate to shop for myself. i get so frustrated. and it is so hard to do it with kids. jordyn was sooooo good. but i get so nervous someone will snatch her up. and then pushing jaelyn in the stroller or pushing it without her is such a pain. stores are not made for strollers. and i can never find what i like - i don't even know what i like anymore. i don't have a favorite spot to shop. i desperately want to find a store that is totally me and totally on my budget.
so the shopping trip that was suppose to be for me turned into this...
~ 2 pairs of school pants, a cute pink gap coat & skechers shoes....all for jordyn
~ 2 carters outfits and.....a bib for jaelyn
and yes 1 pair of jeans from express for me (a size smaller then the last pair i bought!)
it is soooo much easier to shop for the kids or for jamil then it is for me.
after a crazy long saturday, i have one pair of jeans to wear and that is about all....
so, tell me where do you like to shop? and what do you like to wear?
