We have started to shop for our upcoming trip and trying to snag some end of summer deals before they are all gone.
The day was started out at the place the furnished almost our entire home, Ikea. (When you are newlyweds living at home, you need to buy a bunch of stuff, Ikea is the place.)
We didn’t buy anything, but I did get to see the kitchen that I absolutely love.
Before we left we did get a few pretzels because Lily didn’t eat much breakfast so you know, the best thing to do is give her a carb.
But, it did provide me with this wonderful photo of the hubby as he said, “Look, I’m a boxer” as he shoved this portion of a pretzel in his mouth.
We did score some great bargains. (The Mousekatot is the one that got the most stuff, as usual.)
I wanted to do Disney Bounding with her outfits (where you take a lose interpretation of a Disney character and dress like that. For example, a white sparkly skirt with a pale blue shirt could be Cinderella.)
While I was shopping I was looking at different shorts and skirts on sale and I couldn’t help but see how much of a difference in size there is in toddler clothing.
*Pulls out soapbox*
Look, as everyone I am sure would agree there is such an issue with body image for girls and women. You are expected to be a certain size and that size should be the same across the board in all the different stores. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Here is a pair of shorts and a skirt that are the exact same size.
So if these sizes were for an older girl, maybe in her preteens, and she tries on the red shorts and they don’t fit and she starts to feel self-conscious because she thinks she went up a size. But, she isn’t mature enough to understand how sizing works in the fashion industry.
It just stinks that this size issue is happening in sizes 4T. That is outrageous!
*Steps off of soapbox and puts it away*
After shopping we went out to eat at Bucca di Beppo. We love it there because we can get a nice big, family style meal and we don’t have to worry about wasting food with Lily.
We ended our Saturday by doing our grocery shopping because we are just a bunch of crazy kids.
It appears that that time of year is now upon us.
