Consignment day!

I've mentioned before that I love children's consignment sales. Why not buy high quality play clothes for the same price as cheap ones? The sale they have here is great - no rips, no stains- everything is washed- no gross thrift center smell. (I still wash my purchases as soon as I get home of course.) I couldn't get a babysitter so Lydia came along. She did so well, I let her pick out an outfit. Not too hard to guess...a really overpriced Ariel outfit from the Disney Store. I even tried to move it before she saw it, but that girl has eagle eyes for Princesses. I like the outfit she is sporting in these pics. Gymboree sweater and skirt for $8, gap baby doll tee $4. For that price, I didn't even mind that she started writing on her clothes with chalk. By the way, she isn't a genius. It was me who wrote her name. She can spell her name out loud, but can only write the "L" and "Y" before she needs help.

Even though she just turned 3, most of what I bought was 4-5T. This girl is so dang tall! People ask me if she is starting kindergarten soon. :)


My purchase of the day was this little baby album I found still in the wrapping. For $2 I thought it was pretty cute. When I opened it at home, I saw the $64 price tag. I thought it was a joke. Then I saw it was a Maude Asbury and realized I totally scored. (Seriously though. Who pays $64 for a small fabric baby album?)

Score. Sorry I didn't see your email till now. I guess I got what the boys had this weekend. I feel like the walking dead. They were all back to full energy in like 6 hours...not so for ol' me. Hopefully tomorrow will be different.

Her outfit in those pics is absolutely adorable! She is such a cutie! I wish I could find good deals like that for my boys!

I LOVE kids consignment sales! We do a lot of our shopping at them. Your daughter's outfit is adorable!

Popped over from SITS roll call...and yes, I do believe ice cream counts as a protein! ;)
