The Chick's List Part Deux

Today was a warm but rainy day so I decided that it was a perfect opportunity to bum around in comfy clothes and cuddle with the Snuggle Bug. Evidently, Kendall had other plans. She was fussy, clingy and just generally unpleasant to be around so I knew that we had to get out of the house (she has a complete turn around in attitude when she is in her big girl stroller flirting with complete strangers). She is a bit young for art museums and movie theaters and it was too rainy for the zoo so we went to the next best place...the mall. Seriously, it is a great learning experience when you talk about all the different colors and textures....and it is essential that she adds the following words to her vocabulary: Gap, Pottery Barn Kids, Starbucks...

I am oh so proud of myself because we made it through the entire experience without buying one thing!! Well, except for the cookie and Diet Coke but who could expect me to demonstrate such stellar self control without proper nourishment? Anyway, here is the Chick's list of goods that I would have purchased if I had won the lottery last week :)

Janie and Jack:
Ribbon Rose Embroidered Dress (would make the perfect Easter dress for Little Bug)
Lots more in this store that had great potential

Corkscrew Hair Curlies
They also had "sweet pea" clothes (one of the names we call Kendall) but I can't find them on their website.

Pottery Barn Kids:
Chez Moi Four-Drawer Dresser: time to move from the changing table to a dresser
Kayla frames: for pictures of her family...cousins, grandparents...
Easter Basket Bucket
Patchwork Bumper Her bumper has had a meltdown and her pacifier falls out sometimes, it is so sad to go into her room and see her with her forehead pressed against the crib just looking at her pacifier on the ground and crying.
Ava Peg Rack and Ledge

White Chocolate Mocha (this demonstrates the amazing self control that I exhibited)

  1. I'm so impressed that you managed to get out of the mall without buying ANYTHING! I can go with intentions of just returning something and will actually come out having spent more money AND possibly not have remembered to return the original item. UGH!

    So whats the big news?!
