Preppy Deals...

Today I went into J Crew and found some cute, cute deals on sale for the minis.








I also found the navy nautical sweater (no picture) I had been eyeing for mini#1 in last fall's catalog. Was $58 originally and I got it for $21! It has a white anchor on the front. All items were originally $168...I paid $74 today. I probably would have bought more, but I made the mistake of letting mini#2 out of his stroller and he was pushing it through the store like he was in the grand prix. I kept losing my concentration having to discipline him. He does not like that stroller, but he doesn't stay with me unrestrained either. I always coax him into the stroller when we get out of the car by saying, "You're lucky. You get to ride in the stroller. I wish I could ride in the stroller." Works every time. We made a quick stop by Barnes and Noble, too. I had to find my book club book, The Tender Bar. Has anyone read this? I was told it was at Target, but after looking in two with no results I gave up and went to B&N. Mini#2 enjoyed loudly telling people we were looking for "the book club book" to anyone who would listen. Can I just say that preschool is 5 months too far away for me...I mean him. If anything he's a good deterrent to my shopping sickness. Sometimes just thinking about venturing out with him gives me a migraine, hives or both.

Goodness, those are some cuuuuute shorts. We were in Pasadena for a wedding about 2 years ago when Crewcuts first came out. I walked by a J. Crew store and they had all these little people clothes in the window. I screamed. I went inside and I nearly bought everything in sight for #1 (I was hormonal and pregnant with #2 at the time). I bought khaki critter shorts for $42 for a 3yo. Yes, I was nuts and I'll keep blaming it on my pregnancy. My husband just rolled his eyes but did not dare argue. The good thing is that he is still wearing them 2 years later...thank goodness for adjustable waisted shorts!

I was just talking to a neighbor about adjustable waists. We couldn't live without those for our shinny boys! Tag complete.

Cute shorts! Can I just tell you, shopping only gets harder with them. I thought my boys would kill me while out shopping with them at that age. Now, it's even worse. Although, I can now go while they're at school. :)

Love everything you bought at J. Crew. You found some deals. I love their crewcuts for kids. There aren't too many options for little boys and these are winners!

As for shopping with kids...I too remember the days where I decided to stay home rather than load, unload and negotiate.

We read the Tender Bar for book club. Might have been one of the many I bought and never read. I am a social bookclub member.
