It’s true. I can’t stop shopping… for Lily! I thought that once we had the baby shower and got everything we needed (and we literally got almost everything we need!) that I would be all set and have no need to shop. My best friend was going to give me all of her clothes to borrow and we were just going to swap if she ends up having another girl eventually!
Well, I’m not sure if it’s just part of nesting, or if it’s because Kelley lives two hours away so I haven’t been able to get the clothes yet, but I am obsessed with buying Lily clothes! I am at least trying to be smart about it and buying a season or so ahead and also buying summer clothes on sale for next year. But really, our unborn little girl already has THREE bathing suits… size 6 months, 9 months and 12 months to be sure that we have all basis covered! For some reason my ever-so-understanding husband thinks this is crazy! I just don’t get it! 🙂
We are in no financial position to be out shopping like crazy, but it just makes me so happy to buy her cute things. And to be not-so-hard on myself, I have been hitting up consignment shops so it is not terribly expensive. Tonight I was meeting my husband for dinner and had literally 5 minutes to kill. Instead of just getting a table and ordering an water, I went into Once Upon a Child and got 6 new outfits for $15! It was a great deal and they were all either Disney or Gap brands (with the exception of the Steelers onsie I was able to score for $1!) But really I am sure we could have lived without them and instead put that $15 toward our credit card bills. Oh well….
How has anyone ever stopped themselves from constantly shopping? I just hope this little girl gets here soon so I can get back to work and can go back to shopping without worrying about not paying our bills! 🙂
