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.

Social Network Shopping

SNS? Whaaaat is that? This is when you search on Facebook for local community pages where the surrounding areas post items for sale. Yardsale/ garage sale titled pages, Mom pages, and other specifically titled pages are considered “seller” pages on Facebook. You can join these groups for free, obviously, and watch for posts of items for sale that you may need. Sometimes individuals on these pages give items away for FREE because they do not want the hassle of trying to sell it or maybe it needs some work, and they are not worried about making money off of it.

There are many “Pay it Forward” titled pages in your areas as well. These pages are strictly for giving away items. You are welcome to claim an item that you may need (not too many or too often), but if you truly are not in need then perhaps it would be best to let someone else claim the item, especially if they have been searching or asking about the items on previous posts :). Giving your old items away on these PIF pages is also wonderful so have fun Paying it Forward!

This post will be brief in explaining this post as it is very basic, and explained above! YAY!!!

It has been weather crazy in SWFL lately with one day being freezing cold, the next day pouring rain with flooded parking lots, the next day kind of cold, but not really, then really cold, and then the next day being a breezy, warm day again!!!!

I chose this day to make my husband pit stop and take a photo of this shirt while we were sprinkled on, haha. I love you, Jason!
