Christmas in...October?!

The Children's Place was having an incredible sale about a week ago online. A bunch of stuff was marked down to like $3-4 dollars and then a code to take an additional $10 off the total order over $30. I discovered this sale while I was at work so I was blocked from getting to actually see what was offered. Jon went to their online store and decided that it was too good of a sale to pass up so he ended up spending $34 with tax and shipping. I had almost forgotten about this when I noticed the small box on our doorstep as I pulled into our driveway! Jon had picked out some majorly CUTE makes me sort of sad to have to put most of it in her closet for Christmas.

I also had scored some major CUTE stuff today at our Carter's Outlet on my lunch break. I went there looking for a pumpkin shirt for Halloween and the pink/chocolate butterfly shirt from the ill-fated Kohl's shopping trip to cheer me up. Shopping for Emma makes me happy. :) I also went looking to get some stuff for Peytonn's Christmas. They were having a huge sale in anticipation of moving across town to our new some shirts for $0.49 and $1.99 and some outfits were 70% off! I was disappointed that all of the adorable blue/chocolate stuff that I was looking at for Peytonn only went up to 9 months! I did leave with like four shirts, a skirt, a skort and a pair of pajamas for Emma*Cakes and it only set me back $22 with tax! We pretty much have her entire fall wardrobe covered in these two purchases...I was so happy with our finds and it didn't hurt the wallet too much. Now if only I could find the elusive "Kaiya Eve" style pettiskirt on the cheap!

Emma & I also exchanged the weirdly sized Old Navy jeans tonight too. I held them up to another pair like we have in 18-24 months that fit well (just a little long) and the size in this style was a 2T! Old Navy sizes definitely seem to run small since Emma is wearing mostly 12 months & 18 months stuff! A pair of pink sherpa boots caught her attention as I was comparing these jeans so I helped her try them CUTE. The 18-24 mo were huge on her. Seriously...what is up sizing?! She did grab ahold of a completely adorable turqouise shirt that said "R is for Rock Star" so I let her get it. They were 2 for $12 so I held up the other styles to let her choose...she went for the "A is for Awesome" in grey/pink. :) I have such a smart, fashionable, adorable, precious girl and I love every minute I spend with her!

Have a mentioned that she knows where her nose is and where her toes are now? She is also becoming quite the little mimic and so expressive in her face...she even rolls her eyes sometimes! I also have to admit that I am beginning to tire of the "Wigs" ... she wants them on as soon as we get home and then she dances around the room. :) I'll try to upload a video of it whenever Jon gets the computer cleaned up. You'll smile...

Kohl's...I'm no longer a customer!

They just opened a new Kohl's in Smyrna and I stopped by there after I picked up Emma tonight. I love Kohl's and today was their Grand Opening Sale but there was nothing grand about it. A good bit of stuff was marked 40-50% off and another 15% off if you used a Kohl's card. The employee greeter at the door did not say hello, welcome, want to open a Kohls card...nothing. There were no employees to be found in the childrens dept. and it took me forever to locate some adorable two piece pajama sets in 9-12 months for a boy! The employee at the front where they had the aisle partitioned off by the check outs was RUDE...she made me walk all the way back to the end when we ducked under it to get in line (no customers!) and the employee at the other end in turn made me go right back to where I was to get in line. This is really fun with a fussy toddler in a stroller and an armful of clothing! I had decided that I would go ahead and sign up for the Kohl's card to save a little on Christmas presents and they always harrass you to sign up for one when you go to check out anyways. Apparently not at this Kohl's, according to the clerk, the employee at the front door should have signed me up because "they do things differently here." Obviously, so I dropped my stuff on the counter and left....seriously. Are you kidding me? If this is how they treat customers at a Grand Opening then I do not want to be a customer. Three strikes and you're out...I didn't need to be out shopping anyways!
