To Buy or Not to Buy

I am not a huge shopper, but I love a good deal.

Don't get me wrong....I love cute clothes and to die for shoes...a gorgeous home accessory or a fun electronic....but it just isn't a priority of mine to have it at that moment. I have learned to look and wait...see if I still want it a week or so later. And with my life...I usually forget about it.

But lately, I have bought some things that I just couldn't help but get.

Last week Groupon was having a great deal for Gymboree! We got a month of free play and one class a week for $35! And even though I bought it this month, it doesn't expire until December. It would be kind of overwhelming for me right now to take Zoe and Evan to play, but in about 2 months or hopefully sooner, it will be no thing! I really want Zoe to get interaction with other kids and I thought this would be a great way to.

I never thought I would have a boy so when I bought Zoe's crib bedding, I always said I would just use it for both genders....well I just can't do that now that I do have a boy! So here is what I bought for Evan's nursery!
I am so excited for it to arrive sometime time this week or next! I love too that this collection has an older set for when Evan gets into his big boy bed! Hobby Lobby has so many cute, vintage looking airplane accessories...so I will have to keep my eyes open for when they go on sale for 50% off!

Another purchase I made recently was this
After our Maternity Session, I was so disappointed! I have worked with a couple different photographers and have been nothing but pleased with the work and creativity they have provided for us! This was so far from those experiences. I tried really hard to convince myself that everything would be fine, but the more I thought about it...the more I talked myself out of continuing business with Robyn. So, I canceled our package and used the money to get our own lens. I LOVE taking pictures of my kids, so I figured I could use a new lens to get better pictures and that this would be a better way of spending our money. After seeing a friends pictures, we decided to get a Zoom Lens. I can't wait to get outside and take some pictures of Zoe and Evan!

My last purchase was out of pure necessity!!!
With the age Zoe is at right now....just about everything ends up on the floor! And now having a boy...I can only imagine my house in a year! So I needed something that was quick and convenient to pull out and clean up a mess! This hand vac has already come in handy and I am so glad I got it! I also purchased it at Kohl's...and received $10 Kohl's Cash! L.O.V.E Kohl's!!!!
