So I’m hearing from several of you that you checked Target for the cord organizer and couldn’t find it. First of all, you guys are SO on the ball! :) I looked on-line and didn’t see it there so I called my Target and they said it is a “seasonal item.” They got them in December for Christmas gifts (along with the key finder), went on sale in January, and once they are gone, they’re gone until next December. :( Sorry about that! I’m sure there is something similar on-line for those of you who really want to hunt for one. If not, we can all stock up next December!
To answer other questions: I mentioned this before, but if you missed it – both shirts and the purse I showed in my previous post were from The Limited. Where else do I shop besides Limited? I love Nordstroms for shoes, jeans, and make-up but don’t by a lot of tops there. I don’t really feel like they are worth the money since I get tired of my shirts so quickly. Jeans on the other hand I have spent a small fortune on, but (as I tell Kenny over and over) that’s all I wear staying home with kids and a good pair of jeans will last for years. At least that’s how I justify them. The reality? I couldn’t put a price tag on something that makes me feel better about my thighs. :) For tops I love Forever 21. Trendy and cheap. My other go to is Banana Republic and like I said, I love Limited. For my girls I love The Gap and Gymboree. Once in awhile I look in Justice for Ellie, but it’s so pre-teen that it usually just makes me depressed.
Let’s see…other news of the day –
Still working on my goal to get my kids eating healthier this year. The Cadbury Eggs? A little reward for myself for sticking to it and making the girls eat their vegetables. Isn’t it great being the mom? :) On a side note – why in the world is Easter candy out already? I CANNOT pass up Cadbury Eggs. Now I have to deal with this problem for 4 months? Time for a new pair of jeans…
Today was pretty low key. Got lots of odds and ends done around the house and ran a few errands. Addison attended several Royal Balls. You know – the usual. :)
These two were a huge help with laundry. Both of them creating more by the minute. Between Kole’s inability to keep food in his mouth and Addison’s multiple outfit changes our washing machine is going 24-7!
But oh this little guy is so worth his messes! I love this picture because you can see all of his new teeth coming in. Cute chompers buddy. :)
Wonder when he’ll start caring that he is playing in a pink play room…
with pink toys… ???
Valentines Day is right around the corner! Ellie’s class is making their own sacks in school this year. I’m kind of bummed! We had fun making her box last year.
This is a simple way to add a bit of flair to your little one’s Valentine box. I helped Ellie with the top of her box….
and she bedazzled out the sides. She loved this thing and all of her little Valentines from friends so much that she saved it. It’s still sitting in her room. :) Such a fun holiday.
This was another fun thing we did last year for Valentines Day. Ellie, Addison and I came up with things we love about Kenny and wrote them on hearts and covered the pantry door with them on V-day. He loved it. I’ve also seen where families write things they love about each other every day in February until the 14th and stick them up on a door or window. A blog reader of mine is also doing fun things each day to show her husband how much she loves him. You can get some V-day ideas from her here.
