This past weekend was another relaxing one for the family. I did lots of shopping for Michael and a little for myself (more on that in a minute…). A weekend that includes some shopping is always a good one in my book!
The weekend did start out a little shaky though.
Poor Michael was crying a bit during the night (which he never does) and waking up a lot as well. He was also drooling, biting at anything in his path, and suffering from a bit of diarrhea. Since I teethed very early, I decided to inspect Michael’s gums- just in case.
Sure enough, my little boy has two teeth coming through his top gums at just a few days shy of three months old.
Rubbing his gums, giving him some teething gel, and letting him play with his teething rings has helped tremendously though.
He’s a happy little camper now!
OK…back to the shopping thing…
I went to J. Crew on Sunday. It’s my very favorite store.
(Gap and Banana Republic are tied for second.)
While I was there, I had one of those exciting moments at the register when something unexpectedly rings up on sale. I scored a pair of pants for $10 (!) and a shirt for $29.
I was so thrilled as I was leaving that I called out to all of the customers who were browsing the same shirts,”Buy these! They are on sale!”
When I brought my shirt home, I realized that I have a major problem (beyond forcing strangers to buy things)…
I’m addicted to stripes.
In fact, I just may have been a zebra in a previous life.
How many striped shirts does one woman seriously need?
(Apparently, my answer to that one is 15. I’m embarrassed to add that I also have many striped socks and pajamas.)
If any of you ever see me out and about in person, please stage an intervention if I am browsing through a rack of striped shirts. Please.
Do you tend to buy the same type of clothing over and over again? Anyone else love stripes as much as I do?
I am glad to hear the little guy is back in a happy mode:) I have 4 dominate colors in my closet – black, blue, hot pink and deep purple. I also love stripes and floral prints (tasteful floral I hope). I have tried to go outside of the box with clothing, but never seem to wear it as much, so stick with what I like:) Happy Monday!
