First Day of School Part 2: Shopping!
A picture of Abigail with her own lunch tray while Boo is at school!
After school we went shoe shopping. Yes, Elaina was cranky but promised she'd be good for shoes. Eh, not so. It was one embarrassing trip to Pa.yless and Tar.get. BUT I did get 4 pairs of shoes for $30!!! SCORE! I love BOGO!!! I got 2 pairs for myself and 2 pairs for Elaina for school.
My shoes are awesome (Elaina's are too)! I love them. One was $7 and the other was BOGO 1/2 off at $3.50. You cannot beat that for shoes that were originally over $20 apiece. I like flat, comfy shoes. The black pair are one size too big in case my feet swell. They still fit, just a little loose. The purple shoes are stretchy.
At Tar.get we got more school clothes. I had to take back 2 pair of pants I had gotten Elaina as they were too big. So we got one pair of pants and one pair of shorts.
I think I'll be looking a lot more closely at 4th of July accessories/jewelry since her school clothes are red, white and navy! Bet I can find some awesome stuff clearanced. ;-)
Abigail did so good today I let her pick out something from the Dol.lar Sp.ot. She got this really cool bouncy ball that has floating, multi-colored balls inside (reminds me of a snow globe). The bead-things float around in slow motion when you bounce it. Elaina threw a fit that Abby got the ball, but she's already gotten so much in preparation for school that I told her it was Abby's turn and to be grateful.
AND we got Zoe's going home outfit. !!! I've looked high and low for something and everything was either too bright, too dull, too froo-froo... I'm excited about our find. It was less than $8, too.
Someone sent us a beautiful, hand-knit hat for Zoe, too! They made it and prayed over it while they knitted. Little did we know that these two would actually match and look cute together! We definitely didn't do it on purpose so that makes it even more perfect. The flash kind of made the colors in the hat look slightly different but believe me, they look CUTE together! It's a pink, brown and cream hat.
I can't wait to bring our baby home in this! We got NB size because I am afraid preemie size might be too small. So this will be huge on her but it's still cute!
On a sweet note, Daddy had taken this upstairs and laid it exactly like this in the crib, envisioning his baby laying there. Can I get a collective "Awwwwwww"?!
