I *heart* Facebook. Call me a late-comer, but I recently joined Facebook because a neighbor sent me an invitation to join. I started out with the friends in the neighborhood, then I found college friends, friends from high school, friends from grad school, friends from marching band--you get the picture. I re-connected with my "sister" from Finland (the foreign exchange student my family hosted when I was in college). I've gotten re-acquainted with second cousins whom I used to see every summer. I've met up with my CDH bloggie moms there, too. I love Flair and a few of the other applications that I actually use.
I *heart* Younkers. It is a department store here in the Midwest; I know they have quite a few other names in different parts of the country. It is like an upscale Kohl's--everything is always on sale, and then there are almost always extra 20% off coupons you can use. They carry Carter's and Osh Kosh, a couple of my favorite brands. Just this week I got Leah the cutest vest, regularly $27. On sale for $13.50. Extra 20% off $10.80. That's how I roll.
I *heart* Carter's pajamas. There is one other mom I know who shares my affinity for said pajamas as well. They just have the cutest darn pj's ever and if you get them at Younkers or Kohl's, are pretty darn cheap. I have a slight obsession for pj's--that's why Leah got 4 pairs for her birthday, plus 2 more when we visited my friend Robyn. I've had two separate comments at the bus stop about Leah's jammies; "Boy, Leah, you have a lot of pajamas!" and "Leah, you have the cutest jammies." Yes, Leah goes to the bus stop in her pj's--you think I have time to get two kids dressed and fed and out the door by 7:25 am? Ha! Here are a few I have my eyes on for Emma since Leah is set in the pj department for awhile:
I *heart* Gap fleece hoodies. My obsession with these started when Emma was a baby. I have at least one or two in every size from 6-12 mo (the smallest they make them) now up to size 6-7. The past two years I have been in brown & pink mode, so for the next lucky lady in the clothes line-up (which right now is our niece) will get a brown/pink hoodie in size 2, size 3, size 4/5 and size 6/7. They serve as a great fall jacket, and for Leah she will wear one under her super cute vest (see above) for most of the winter as her winter coat. (Sorry about the picture size, aparently they are sold out of the ones I ordered a couple months ago)
I *heart* my bloggie friends. I recently "won" my first blog award, given generously by Cristin.
