The Happy Shopper

The “new mom” thing hasn’t really worn off on me yet (most days)…I still LOVE shopping for the wee-one, especially for things she hasn’t experienced before, like mittens and mitten clips. That was today’s mission. I found cute fleece mittens (well, thumbless mittens, if you can picture that) with a matching hat (sears), along with hot pink mitten clips (target). I got her the next size of Target brand Robeez knock offs, and a cute hooded zip-up sweater with a pom-pom on the zipper (sears).

While shopping at Target and Sears, I looked through the holiday dresses. Last year she had a Santa Dress, and then another very pretty dark maroon velvet number. I’m thinking two holiday dresses are a good thing to have, with multiple celebrations and all, a girl has to have choices. We came by 2006’s dress number one via her cousin Anna–it’s the cutest thing with fur cuffs, matching hat and everything. Perfect. So here’s question–do we go for another Santa dress this year or do we branch out??? There are beautiful velvet dresses with pink or white tulle skirts, burgandy dresses with drop waists, traditional Christmas plaid, and many other options. Any and all opinions and advice will be considered!! I looked online, but didn’t have the selections that I saw in the store today or I’d have ya’ll check ’em out.


How could you not post about Madonna today?? I had to say I was disappointed that it was a video feed and not a live interview, though if I’d thought about it long enough, I would have come to that conclusion before turning on the TV (Oprah: Chicago, Madonna:London). So here’s what I noticed: a) The Material Girl really did go through “the process”–she had a Social Worker and a Homestudy just like us!! (who knew i’d have something in common with Madonna??) b) She actually has an open adoption, since she’s met David’s first father and all. c) I think she explained her situation quite well, and I’m prone to believe her.

All that being said, I noticed that most of her pretty face really didn’t move. I think in addition to a Social Worker, the Material Girl also has a Botox worker, don’tcha think??? That said, she looks fantastic for a mom of 3!!! Also, me thinks she’s affected the accent of a Brit.

  1. I have many, many comments to share!

    1. Yesterday…Anna picked out the same hot pink mitten clips at Target as M. How crazy is that? (same day and everything)

    2. Branch out on the dresses. Pick the one you love the most!

    3. Shopping for your child will never grow old. At least not for me! (at least it hasn’t yet, LOL!)

    4. I feel the exact same way as you regarding the Madonna interview. I was actually curious as to how you felt. I thought she sounded very believable. And yes, her face did NOT move at all!

  2. First off, CANNOT STAND Madonna now – she’s American. And if I remember from my school days well enough, has an accent which gives one the idea she’s a Jersey Girl or New Yorker….. Forget the Brit crap! SHe sounds so hokey…

    On to the most important things – Girl Clothes! YES – go different this year! I LOVE C’mas plaids! (Last year, A had a red/black/yellow plaid vest and driving cap)

    I LOVE velvet. I LOVE burgundy. Pink is always perfect…

    She definitely needs at least 2 of these.

  3. Hi there! I stopped over from Away To Me, hope you don’t mind. 🙂

    I’m the mother of a 22 month old, adorable little boy. That being said, if and when we’re blessed to adopt a little girl, I’m going to be in trouble! I just love all the beautiful little dresses and accessories out there. Little girls have much more options when it comes to cute clothes.

    I think, if I were you, I’d forgo the second Santa dress and pick something new. Like Beth said, branch out on the dresses. 🙂

    I’m not sure what to think about the situation with Madonna. I need to go see that video feed. I was on vacation when it happened.
