This is my giant purse and my baby bjorn carrier. I got this huge purse at Target for less than 20 bucks. I love it. It holds all my stuff and I think looks much cuter than a diaper bag. This baby bjorn we purchased on ebay, it was faded so I covered it with some of the leftover material that I made Charlotte's crib skirt with. It is so handy. She absolutely loves facing forward in it when we go shopping. She can look at everything and it's even comfortable enough that she can doze off. The first 2 months or so after she was born I didn't get out that much, but when I did, it sucked. She hated being in her car seat and grocery shopping was so hard. I usually had to be holding her and trying to keep Tucker close and even when she was in my arms she was upset because I was trying to do other things with them, like load groceries. This thing has been a lifesaver and I can actually enjoy my time out.
Thank heaven for Wal Mart! These are some of my most recent purchases. I found out car seats expire 6 yrs after their manufacture date and since Charlotte's expired this month (it was used when we got it for Tucker but in good shape) we found this one at Walmart.com, it's great- I like Graco. Also since Walmart is the only place I get to anymore I am happy to say I have been finding some cute clothes there too. These shirts I love and I've also gotten 2 cute skirts there recently. It saves me when I don't have time for my much loved trips to Ross for clothes. I am due to go to Payless though and I need some jeans so I may have to venture elsewhere. Walmart, Payless, Ross-if you haven't noticed I am cheap. It works well for me, especially now that I've got 2 kids. Trent is the one who purchases anything over $100-and always without talking to me about it. "I know the finances." That's always his reason why he can spend 3 or 4 hundred dollars at once, but if I did I'd be toast. He went out and bought a $150 dollar humidifier the other day and doesn't understand why I am making him return it. Well I am going to return it. He is good with money and yes we need a warm misting humidifier(which you can purchase for 30 bucks on up). But to me that $150 would be much better spent on a double stroller. Not to mention the $300 DVD player that holds 400 dvd's. Yes it's a cool toy and keeps Tucker from messing with the dvd's, but what about the headboard that I've been wanting for our 5 years of marriage or nightstands. Not important, because Trent doesn't care about that stuff, he says no one sees our room except us so it's not a priority, but after this long I am starting to feel a tiny bit resentful at every largish purchase he makes that my opinion doesn't matter on.
Please forgive the turn this blog has taken. It was not my intent at all to say that stuff, but it's good to get it out. That's what blogging is all about right?
