Just Like Mom

I’ve heard “Just like mommy” and “minni me” even with my first two children for years, but I think this little girlie girl takes the cake. She is full of spunk and personality, but can be quite shy. It all depends on the vibe she gets off of people. I’m the same way.

She loves all things sparkly, all things clothes, all things girly, but then again Alexis, my oldest, used to be that way too, lol. So, I will enjoy this while can!!

I just had to have this shirt that I found that Target carried from Cat & Jack. I’m still a little iffy about the whole turtle thing though because we’re far from “slow”, but they are cute and glittery, haha!!!

She is a doll. See the OOTD and read the details below!! Always keep an open mind about saving in different areas for your family! Pride will only hold you back from great things.

She was so antsy to get up and play!

I had to be very quick to snap a pic before she slid off the chair to run around.

Pouty but pretty in pink and grey

I think talking about our finds for Bentlie, who is now 1, is such a blast, but getting the photos is quite a task!! She is such a busy body, but she did let me just paint her nails red so..WIN!!

Here is a summer casual outfit perfect for out outdoor adventures as long as we have quality bug repellent. If you have any notes on all natural bug repellent for kids, drop them in the comments for me, please!!

About the outfit!

Tank Top: Healthtex: Goodwill- 1.00

Shorts: Carter’s: Dirt Cheap NWT- .90 (2 pack- white/pink 1.80)

Socks: Walmart- .98 (2 pack 1.97 some packs are two colors or same color)

Shoes: Walmart- 3.00 (clearance)

 

Stretch your dollar or two

Babies grow so fast so after my first few months with my 1st child I was done with full price department store clothing. At that time Macys had some amazing clearance sales for toddler clothes. About $4 dollars a piece for items that normally cost about $20 and even some dresses that were $60 was saving me a fortune, but now, I can do better than $4 most of the time!!

All it takes is a little bit of leaving the pride at the stores door!

Even prices have gone up at thrift stores, especially Goodwill, but that is why our thrifting game got stepped up a few notches. This hurt my Goodwill splurges, but it only helped me be more disciplined with the tag color changes!!! That’s a positive!! My daughter has fun with this as well, but we’re still working on her discipline, lol. Watch for our post on how to work Goodwill colors, days, and coupons!

This outfit includes NWT pieces but without the new with tag prices!! We snagged this cute ensemble for less than two dollars!

We found these pieces at two different stores. Both pieces were NWT (new with tags), but not from department stores!

About the outfit:

Pink top: Carter’s: Goodwill- 1.00

White shorts: Circo: Dirt Cheap- .90 (pack of two/ white & pink 1.80)

CUTE AS A BUTTON!!

I’ll explain the “Dirt Cheap” store in another post. I had never seen anything like it until I got to TN. It has taken some getting used to but once in a while it turns out to be great!

What are some neat stores that you have in your town that allow you to save more?
