Here is a quick look at our (extended) weekend:

-Wednesday night: went to a huge kids consignment sale (my favorite).  Spent less than $100, walked away with a few outfits, about 8 pairs of shoes/boots (including pedipeds and some nice suede boots), a “my brest friend” {for future “hopeful” babies}, and all of these toys:

It was a huge success!  And I got to do it alongside a few girlfriends who all have kids around MG’s age so they helped me decide what to keep and what not to buy (but they all have boys so there was no competition for me :)).  The best!

-Thursday & Friday morning: MG and I had our usual book/cuddle time when she woke up.  I asked her if she was ready for breakfast and she enthusiastically replied, “Yeah”.  I let her lead the way and as soon as she exited her room, she looked to her left and then did a DOUBLE-take when she saw the new toys.  She instantly gravitated towards the baby/carseat, pug purse and shopping cart (the rest of the toys were stored for a later day).

 

She decided that she no longer wanted breakfast.  Note that this happened two days in a row.  Well, make that four if you include Saturday and Sunday.  Which you should.

-Friday MG stayed busily happy with her new stuff and I worked up a frenzy of adrenaline that I had been waiting on for about two months now.  I started on one end of the house, cleaning out my closet and weeding out clothes that I had not worn for over a year.  At least.  This gust (and a happily playing child) led me to the next closet (guest bedroom) and then finally to MG’s closet to pack away summer and pull out fall (made more fun by the addition of newly acquired clothes).  It went so well that we never even changed out of our pj’s nor stopped for a mid-morning snack.  We finally ate lunch at 1:45pm and then exhausted, we both napped.  Here is the end result:

Surprised I have any clothes left?  Me too.  While I can happily rest in the fact that the nursery and guest closet will most likely stay fresh and organized until spring, I have a feeling that my closet will all too easily become stuffed again long before that. What can I say? Clothes shopping is my favorite past time!

-Saturday was the 1/2 price consignment sale (where I managed to snag a few more desired items…including these cute Matilda Jane pants),

 

followed by the cutest Elmo birthday party for a little friend, visiting with Grandma and home just in time for a long nap. It was capped off by a spontaneous overnight visit from some dear friends, Mexican food, and staying up too late laughing and sharing around the chiminea pot.  S’mores most definitely included.  A perfect entry into fall.

-Sunday was breakfast out at a local diner & the best bacon & cheese omelet I’ve ever laid on my tongue.  We walked around the local historic park in the breezy morning and then it was an early nap for the little one.

-The fun continued into the night with more family: both of the facetime and tangible variety, one gluten-free
Gigi’s cupcake, Panera bread company, and watching our girly girl dig around in the dirt.  Which, of course, warranted a quick pre-bed bath.

May there be many more weekends of this exact flavor in our near future!

    I love consignment! You just can't go wrong buying second-hand especially when you have both a girl AND a boy to buy for 🙂
