Diagnosis=Depressed Remedy=Shopping

What is a girl to do? I've had a major headache all day, and I think I'm going to explode! Work, adoption, lack of sleep... I've had enough!

So, I had an hour to kill before I picked the wee-ones up from school, and I needed to get an Engagement pressie for some friends, so off I trundled to the shops!

Shopping List:

Saucepans for Engagement present



Quilt Cover

Bed Sheets for M

Baby keys

"Who Loves Baby" soft chewy album

Baby Seater (this thing is awesome!!!)

oh yeah, and saucepans.

Linen was 50% off, Nursery stuff 30% off... the bugga's why do they put those big sale signs up, it sucks me in EVERYTIME! I'm really rapt with the baby gear. The little baby keys - $3! Who loves baby album $10 (gotta have one of these for the care package! I actually have one coz the superstar Jodie Ho-Ho, no longer blogging, sent me one from California! So this one is for my Secret Pal). I digress, I saw the Baby Seater AGES ago, and was looking at similar ones on ebay, then they disappeared from Target. Well, when I saw the 30% off sign, I walked the baby aisles - and saw it! Its back! AND it's cheaper!!! I'm sure when I saw it over a year ago it was about $24... I bought it today, on sale, for $7!!! Friggin fantastic!! What's more its about the size of my hand! So tiny to pack, and take to China!!!

My headache still lingers, but I have a happiness inside... I got great bargains!!!

You absolutely could not let them get away with those sales! Sounds like you got some good bargains. Glad to hear you're feeling a little better.

I have never seen one of those Baby Seaters before. It's a good idea.

Rachel said...

Lee-Anne, You actually need two of the Who Loves Baby albums. I would reccomend making two identical ones. Send one to baby and then take one to China with you in case the orphanage doesn't give yours back. It will be one thing baby will be familiar with.
