We needed some new pool stuff
that sort of thing
so we decided to make
shopping for them
our Family Fun Night activity on Friday.
We just went to the Dollar Tree and Wal-mart
it took a couple of hours.
we headed to Penny's;
they were having - get this - a sale.
Most everyone needed an outfit or two
so the whole family went.
We started in the little boys section
and found something for Josiah
(who dearly loves getting new clothes!)
then looked briefly in the girl's section
till I came to my senses & remembered
neither girl needs anything.
Lily dearly loves new clothes, too
but she was a trooper.
The shoes, though, she had a hard time
passing up all the cute shoes!
Then it was on to Jeremiah's department.
Can you believe - all these kids
and none of their clothes are in the same dept.
After the boys 4 - 7 section
things started getting a little crazy
what with several people trying on clothes
and different ones going off in multiple directions
trying to speed up this whole shopping process.
By the time it was time for me to look in the ladies department
everyone had pretty much had it.
Which is what happens
we all go clothes shopping
Tyler and I were talking on the way home:
none of the kids were bad
(even Lexi was pretty good, actually)
but there's just so darn many of us.....
and we take up so much space
and it just takes soooo long.
Since we didn't get a chance to look for anything for me yesterday
Tyler wanted to take me shopping this afternoon.
We spent almost 4 hours at Kohl's
and I am completely
7 pairs of capris / crop pants
some 'dressy', some casual, and some really casual
and 5 tops.
I don't think
I have ever bought so much clothing
for myself at one time before.
It really is extravagant
to have more than enough clothes to last an entire week
without washing or re-wearing.
I just need to figure out where to put everything....
