UH-OH!! Someone Went Shopping!

And that someone would be me!!!

I wasn't going to yet!

I was going to wait a while...but I went to Superstore today and they were having a clearance sale of their summer stuff and before you know it.....

MY BASKET WAS FULL!!!

In my defense, they had some wicked deals like $2 t-shirts, $5 jeans and $8 jumpers.....

I got bigger sizes anticipating he won't wear some of this stuff until next summer!

Ummmmm
....that shopping business for baby was a lot of fun!

I have been dreading the shopping of baby clothes for years...and now! Not so much :)

Look at those adorable little shoes...I got those at Old Navy and I couldn't resist...I just hope they will fit...I know shoes can be tricky.
(What? So, I went to more than one place...I got the fever baby....I got the fever!)

Next up!
Baby furniture!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah baby! You go girl. I shopped so much before Jayden was born...actually truth be told, before I was even pregnant. I knew some day we would have a girl since we have always known we wanted to do an adoption, and if I only had boys, then we would adopt a girl. So no worries....UNLESS you start bidding on ebay and when it goes over the price you want to spend and you keep up bidding it cause you really, really wanted that item. Which by the way was totally out of style by the time that J was able to wear it, and I think she wore it..um...twice! Oppsies. Leason was learned though!!!!
The clothes are super cute. I love baby shopping.

A sale eh? I would be doing the exact same thing!!!! (Probably even if I was just close to a referral...) They are very cute and I love the little converse shoes!

New reader here. I've been following as my husband and I are about to start the adoption process once we get back to Canada (have been living in the USA for a year and have been waiting til we settle back in Saskatoon before we can start the process). It's great to follow you through this and I know how the baby clothes thing can carry one away! Not that I've ever gone overboard...ahem. :) I love the shoes! So cute!

really cute clothes and the matching shoes are to die for. I did the same thing, but even before I was close to being a Mom. I would always have cute kids clothes on hand for gifts because once I had to do a last minute shop for a shower and WAY overspent. Allen would laugh at me, but it worked. We all will still make the purchase (or two) that they never wear. Mine was that she really didn't wear shoes until she was walking because she didn't want them on her feet. She still doesn't! Barefoot is so much fun. Keep having fun with it. Sales rock!

Shop shop shop and enjoy it. If they don't fit you can donate them to the TH or Orphanage in E... It is a win -win situation!!!!

Brendan said...

How fun!! Those clothes are so cute! That must have been an awesome feeling walking up to the till to pay for your beautiful son's clothes.

Rhonda, Kristin, Eden said...

yAHOO :) Shop till you drop or till visa says ouch!

Eden has tons of clothes she's only worn once, but at the time, who cares! It was fun to shop!

Ramona said...

Perfect choices, Rana! I must confess that I did a bit of shopping for our little ones too (on our trip)... and on the evenings before our "should have been" and first court date, I couldn't let myself and do I ever regret the sales I passed up!

And then I remind myself I have clothes form our others kids in tubs downstairs... and am off to check out the Joe stuff out this way this next week!

emily and mike said...

So fun! I love those shoes and the cute red hoody. He'll look so sweet in them!
And shopping is a healthy way to prepare Rana. Don't apologize : )

AHHHH shopping...my therapy! Shopping for Sara was one of my favorite things I did after she came home - and it still is one of my favorite things to do! Enjoy every second.

Darrell and Jess said...

oh so so much fun!!! :) those outfits are adorable too! I always tell myself (when I buy another outfit) that I can always donate them to the orphanage if the girls don't fit them. Enjoy the shopping!!

CinnamonOpus said...

Yay! Shop til you drop, Mama!

Love it!! What a great haul. Superstore sales are the best. I can't wait to see the furniture you pick out and the nursery (hint hint)

Seeing all this shopping is good for the soul... I'm sure you had a great time picking out Ade's first outfits. Keep up the good work!
