Today

Since we missed Valentine's this year, I decided to make some cookies for the holiday today. Actually, I went to make them last night, but I forgot my mixer broke with the last batch of cookies I made. I love eating these cookies but boy what a mess they are to make. I only did asingle batch , so it wasn't too bad. Here are my cute little Valentine's enjoying them outside.



I heard that Kohl's was having a sale so I went to check it out this afternoon. I have been itching to buy my new baby boy something. I think I am so much pickier with boy clothes. I wasn't totally excited with my couple finds, but it was a good price and they aren't as bad as other outfits I've seen. The blanket is to die for though, it is sooo soft. I think I could have found more today but I had Ry with me, we had to hurry to get back for Darren to leave for work, and really I just wasn't in the mood. I'm just too impatient right now!

Sweet sales are awesome!
Ya, I struggle sometimes shopping for my son. Especially the boy baby stuff is hard. I too am very picky.!!!

I don't think its hard to shop for boy stuff...just more expensive cuz I love the baby Quicksilver and Hurley clothes! I bought that teddybear outfit for our little one too. So cute - I hope its not to "boyish" in case I have a girl ;o)

I'm so hungry for those cookies, but not hungry enough to go through the mess of making them! Missy, You could have a little side catering job. Cooking for people like me who hate to even walk into the kitchen! I wish that we lived closer...I'd buy those gorgeous cookies....plus.....I'd watch your children so you could cook without distraction!
By the way, my spaghetti sauce is scorching, gotta run! :)

I am so with you on the boy clothing...it's a lot more difficult to find decent boy outfits. I always check Dillards sale rack and can usually find cute Hurley and Quicksilver shirts:) By the way...I did find that formula dispenser. I found it on Amazon. Thanks for the help!
**Oh yeah...congrats on the boy!!! I am very excited for you:)

hey, sorry kohl's wasn't as good for you. i was on the girls side, so i didn't see much on the boy side. there must have been 6 of us grabbing to get our sizes really fast at a buck each :) glad to see that you found a few cute things.... oh and thanks for your extra attention to kacey in nursery today. i kept peeking in and seeing her on darren's lap. it's week 2, and i'm hoping she gets the hang of it. it certainly makes 3rd hour much easier on us!

I love when the weather is nice enough for the kids to eat messy stuff outside.

I think my son dresses better than my daughter but probably because I like to put him in little skater boy clothes. Girl clothes are definietly more fun though.

Have you guys thought of a name for him already? I know when we think about boy names it is soooo hard!! Good thing we had a girl first or we might be in trouble.

Boys clothes have come so far since we were kids...they are so much cuter. Great picks and you can't beat a fantastic sale!

You got some cute stuff. I love that blanket, I got it for someone as a shower gift. It really is so soft!

yeah so i went back to kohls, and it was slim pickings! i came up with this great idea (actually the inital emotion was fear) because i have NO boy stuff. not even greens and yellows, i have pink up the wazzooo. and if i do have a boy, i'm gonna need to go out and buy things like crazy. so, i decided to go back to kohls and buy the clearanced boy stuff, keeping all the tags on, receipt in bag so i can return it if baby #3's a girl... or at least i've got a start if baby #3's a boy. yeah, not a lot to choose from but somehow i managed to find a few good deals. i got some cute stuff, but i totally agree with you... i'm much more picky with boy stuff than girl stuff... isn't that strange?

Sheri said...

Thanks for sharing those yummy cookies at the park.

Amanda said...

Those cookies do look tasty! I love that you are shopping for a boy! You have to definitely check out H&M!!!

Jodie said...

Yes H&M.

I think I can find cute stuff (I ALWAYS find stuff for Quincy)just not that much!

So when you see it...snag it! (so that means it's usually full price)
