It's a Good Thing

So is it only Martha Stewart that can label something with "It's a good thing"? NO! I am Christina and I am labeling my purchases from yesterday's shopping trip as a good thing.

My cousins wife and I went about an hour away to a good size city and go down the list of childrens consignment shops.
Boy am I glad we did, I got tons and tons of awesome deals for the boys' winter wardrobe and it looks like I shopped at the Gap, childrens place and R. Lauren. LOVE IT! I couldn't have shopped at wal-mart for these prices and about half of my purchases were brand new.
I like to dress my boys as gentlmen, you will rarely see them out and about in a t-shirt and jeans and never in sweats and athletic wear. Call me crazy but I have very specific taste and the stores we went to yesterday were meeting those tastes.

Now, my huge bargain! Big Mister is turning 4 next wednsday and I haven't shopped for his birthday yet. I spotted a thomas and friends train set with the bridge tracks and a good 20-25 trains. They are all magnetic and I got it all for 18 bucks. So there is his main present.
We went to Olive Garden for soup, salad, and breadsticks for lunch, the kids overall did great. Little Mister has me watching him constantly, but that is just his age.

So That's all for me today, a big weekend ahead with a bridal shower for my soon to be sister in law, and shopping for my dress in the wedding, and my sister and her family are coming for the weekend. Also I am getting my hair done in the next couple weeks and not sure what style I want to go for, any ideas send them my way.

God Bless, Christina

actually, Candy I am not a bridesmaid, I am not so privelaged but that's another story. I am a candlelighter and so I need an actual haircut because it is really bad!

Yay for that bargain!!!!

For a wedding, I always say an up-do unless it is an informal one and they rarely are :)
