The dreaded shopping day has come and gone! Praise the Lord! I knew I needed clothes that fit and summery clothes before we went to Hawaii next month, but knowing and doing are two very different things. I had no real desire to try on clothes in my growing state and I had no desire to spend the extra bucks that come with the label “maternity”. The day turned out to be successful despite my reservations. Surprising Motherhood Maternity was a good store for me. Old Navy had some good selection for shorts. Now I am ready for summer and ready to grow!
This trip wasn’t just about me. My hubby goes shopping once or twice a year, so this was a big expedition for him as well. He found some great deals and walked away with a ton of clothes. Between the two of us and the Memorial Day weekend sales, we were able to save over $250 on our shopping trip. I thought that was a pretty good deal! My sister came with us on this adventure since she’ll be joining us in Hawaii and was also in need of a wardrobe boost before our travels. She scored really well too. Overall, I say everyone walked away a winner today. I got over my fear of maternity shopping and while it’s not my favorite thing in the world, it wasn’t too bad. We enjoy a lot of tasty meals together and had a good time. It was a fun Memorial Day, but I’m finding these long outings out really drain me. Pajamas and snuggling with my pup were high on my list of things to do when I got home.
Now if only the Western Washington rain would go away so I could wear some of these new clothes!
