A.'s birthday dinner at Daddy's work was a huge success. A. filled up on bread and pretzels and didn't eat much real food though ... only regaining his appetite when the extremely yummy dessert came!
I had nothing to wear to dinner because nothing I own fits. Nothing I own fit before I got pregnant either so I really can't blame it on the babe-to-be. Sigh ... I found a not-maternity dress that should work well through summer so I was happy about that. What befuddled me though was the current styles ... everything looked like, and worked well for, maternity clothes. I didn't see a lot of things that flattered the figure. Oh well, I'm happy with my new dress (which I can't find a picture of online).
Speaking of clothes ... my oldest daughter (14 year old) needs new clothing. She needs shorts, tops, bathing suits, and jeans. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg but I do want high quality. I'm not interested in buying her "disposable" clothing that will last just 3-6 months, but I sure see a lot of that in the stores these days. Also, I'm looking for shorts that aren't too short, but that aren't made for Grandma (or me ... even worse!) So far we've been to Old Navy, Target, JCPenney, Kohl's, Ross, Marshall's, and a few consignment shops. Any ideas where to look or brands to look for?
And while I'm asking questions (see how easily these completely unrelated paragraphs are flowing together?) I've got a bunch of stuff left from Ditto Kiddo to list online, mostly new Melissa and Doug. I know I can do it on eBay, but are there any other options that might work as well? Just thought I'd ask before I get busy listing it.
