The last few days have been a hectic kind of fun. It all started with my mom coming up for a visit.She couldn't get over the fact that Finn and Calvin could literally sit and drum studiously for hours on end with Tommy. What a good Grandma she is, listening to them drum and encouraging them. We had fun shopping at my favorite local kids store, with a reluctant Finn in tow. I returned some stuff and used my store credit for this unexpected purchase.
a cake clutch.
I had no intention of buying a purse that day, but it was the most peculiar bargain. It had a slight blue blemish, so they sold it 50% off, for $33. However my sister Jessica says it actually retails at around $105. I have not bought a purse for myself since my plastic barbie-pink purse in high school!! Jessica likes to see a picture of a person holding a purse, to make sure the scale is correct. So, here is a picture of me carrying it.
This handy little clutch is made for moms of tots(love the word tots for our munchkins!) It comes with the following features.
However, it's also meant for the evening out. So, I took this little number for a little test drive out to Starbucks with some of the girls. I walked in the door and laughed when I saw that Lorie, Ellie and I were all wearing yellow shirts.
I guess I was not the first person to spot this purse. Christie almost bought it friday, but passed it up cuz she's practicing being fiscally responsible. Good job Christie! Lorie eyed it, but consoled herself with the fact that it did not have better handles.
After coffee some of us went shopping at Target. Soon it was just down to the 3 of us in yellow shirts, roaming the aisles like clones. Ellie and I tried on some fantastic brown pants but thankfully they were too long--we did not want to fork over the dough! Lorie was trying on a bathing suit, complaining about the fit, but Ellie told her she looked so cute like a mermaid. You're always cute to us Lor! To top off all this fun, when I picked up the boys at my MIL's house, they had picked me the loveliest flowers. My MIL has the green thumb--the only flowers at my house come with weeds attached.
