Shopping Trip

JK and I went out this afternoon because I needed to get some bridal shower gifts. I have 2 showers to go to this weekend. Both couples are registered at Home Outfitters, so that's where I went. Besides the gifts, look what else I found: A tiny-tiny glass butter dish! I put it next to Jasper so you can see how small it is. This little thing was only $4.99. I saw it before, but I didn't know what I would use it for. I still don't know, but I love it so I bought it. We also went to Walmart today. Now, I'm usually snobbish enough to say I don't buy clothes at Walmart. But I wanted to get some cheap tube-tops to wear when JK and I play outside so I can try to avoid getting horrible strappy tan-lines before the wedding in July that I have to wear a strapless dress for. So I found some nice ones. I admit that Walmart does have some nice-looking stuff. I actually also bought an adorable green and cream plaid sundress too. It was so cute that I couldn't resist, and the neckline didn't plunge to my waist! So I think that KD should put me on a spending freeze or something. For most of my life I had no extra money at all, and until JK was born, I was afraid to spend any money on myself even though we were doing pretty well financially. Well. That has sure changed! I still feel unreasonably guilty when I buy stuff that I don't strictly need, but I do it anyway. Alright, I'm going to go try on my new dress, then relax with a cold drink and my new Country Home magazine that I didn't need.

  1. Cuuuuuuute butter dish. When I was a teenager I thought I'd never wear clothes from Walmart in a million years. Funny how my favorite shorts are from Walmart. And my coolest summer top. :o/ Funny how what you swear you'd never do usually comes back to bite ya in the bootie. lol For the record, I'd totally buy my entire wardrobe from Target over Walmart any day.

  2. How cute is that butter dish! It's just the little things isn't it, that make all the difference?

    LOL on all the things you are doing now that you think you don't need.

    I didn't realize that Canada had Wal-marts. Do they have Targets too?

  3. Nope, no Targets in Canada. Unfortunately.

  4. That is a super cute butter dish and I'm thinking you should put a single, HUGE bloom in it. I hate Wal-Mart, but I have to admit I've seen a few really cute things in the clothing section there the last few times I've been forced to go.
