Before the shower I made a vow to myself that I WOULD NOT buy a new outfit. I have plenty of clothes in my closet and I need to get out of the awful habit of purchasing a new outfit for every small, medium and large event in my life.
Does anybody else do this? You are invited to some event of some sort and you think "oh I need a new outfit for that!"
I want to get out of this mind set so I've started shopping my closet and I was determined to do this for the shower on Saturday. And then Friday I walked into Ross looking for a laundry basket and this dress was hanging right in front of me. I reminded myself that I DID NOT need to buy a new dress.
But it was then and there that I made a deal with myself. If it was under $12.00 I would allow myself to get it.
Imagine my delight when I looked at the tag with a big $9.99 in beautiful black ink.
It was meant to be.
And my super fun necklace is from Bridier Baubles.
Switching gears.....you knew it would happen, but the moment I blogged about enjoying Eli's fits he had several ginormous fits in a row today. I'm not so sure I enjoyed them.
Wednesday's are always hard because we have church which means we don't get home until late and so Eli gets in bed late.
Normally it's not terribly bad but today he wouldn't take a nap. I tried all afternoon to get him to nap and it just wasn't happening. I knew the end result would mean a grumpy Eli. And really he is such a good baby, but if he doesn't get a nap he tends to meltdown - which seems normal.
But instead of melt -downing he kinda went a little delirious.
After dinner we went to church. Eli still cries when I drop him off in the nursery but I've spied on him and he quits crying about 2.5 seconds after I walk off.
We do our church thing and get home around 9:00, which is well after Eli's bedtime and usually results in this happening:
Which leads to this:
And yes my 14 month old still takes a bottle. If you can break him of it I will give you a $10.00 gift card to Ross.
Now Eli is in bed, but he keeps coughing, I hope he isn't getting sick!
