We made a trip up to Kohl's tonight so I could have a little retail therapy spending my Kohl's bucks. Aside from the fact that I had 2 mini-meltdowns on the drive up due to Rusty's very questionable driving (deep breath), we managed to find some good deals. Here is the little man being such a big boy in this funny cart contraption. Also, look how cool these little Play-Doh thinga-ma-jiggies are to hand out to trick-or-treat'ers. Only $2.09 for the bag of 20. AWESOME alternative to candy. Well, maybe not so awesome to the little recipients' parents, but whatevs...not my problem. hehe
I can't forget to show you what showed up today! Ta-da....how excited am I??? Ok, now, before you go thinking I'm some spoiled rotten brat, I want you to know that we listed things we don't use/need on Craigslist and we are THIRTY BUCKS away from having this baby paid for by money we earned through Craigslist. And, I have this $30 sale pending for tomorrow night. Woo Hoo. I found a deal too good to pass up a Kohl's so I got it 20% off, free shipping, $65 brush attachment kit free and $80 Kohl's cash to boot, which will buy Eli some warm footie PJs that are oh-so-needed now. I walked into the little turkey butt's room last weekend to get him out of bed after a nap and he had taken his pants off. Then, the other day, he tried to take his shirt off by grabbing the back and yanking it over his head. This behavior makes this mommy very nervous at night thinking that he could be suffocating himself in bed and I wouldn't know it. Only one piece pjs at night for this little nudist from here on out.
One last thing, my diet is ON starting tomorrow. No sugar, no flour, no soda, no Halloween candy....just salads, veggies, fruits, nuts and lean meat. Lots of water and exercise. I just need to get into my work pants comfortably and I need it to happen SOON. Flub be gone!
After Eli's 9 mo well visit today, it occured to me to check his Halloween costume to make sure it still fit. Um, not quite...way too short in the arms and legs. He could hardly move around in it...but it was sooo cute :) I'm keeping my fingers crossed that BRU has one in a size 18-24 month and Rusty will be a sweety pie and exchange it for me tomorrow so I don't have to make a trip up to Dunwoody. I had to give Eli my Blackberry to keep him from crying the entire time. This kiddo is going to humor me and wear this costume for Thanksgiving and there is no way he'll be able to get this zipped 5 weeks from now. GOBBLE GOBBLE.
OF COURSE, I have a back-up. hehe Eli is going to wear this one to his friend Cameron's first birthday costume party next weekend. This is the only peek you get for now...
