Best $7 ever

Today I took the kids shopping at the St. Louis Mills, factory outlet mall. The reason I did this is because it has been raining for two days and the kids desperately needed to burn some pent up energy. The mall is awesome, with a PBS kids playground inside, complete with a mini train the kids can ride, as well as a full sized carousel and toy and candy stores to die for. Needless to say, the boys had a blast!
The big hit of the trip, in my opinion, was the cute outfit I found at the Children's Place store. This outfit cost $47 when I was there at the start of summer. $35 for the dress and $12 for the hat. I came SOOO close to buying it back then. Boy am I glad I didn't! Because today, I bought the dress AND the hat for a combined total of ... drum roll please ... $7!! $5 for the dress, $2 for the hat! And gosh, doesn't my little sasparilla look cute as a button in it??? I think so!

She's been crawling all over the place for weeks now, so it was hard to get her to stand still for a photo. It took me nearly 45 minutes of shooting to get some photos that would work!

Look how tall she is! At almost 10 months old, she's certainly going to be a volleyball or basketball player at the rate she's growing!

Hmmm...maybe grandma won't notice if I play her piano!!

For those of you who are wondering, yes we're still in St. Louis. We close on our house next week, and will be true Michiganders, FINALLY!

What a cute outfit, and a steal, at $7. Not sure it was worth $47! LOL! Aren't you glad you waited? She is getting tall!

Good luck with the move!
