Shopping Day

For those of you who haven't figured it out yet, the majority of our income comes from the chicken farm. It is a hard job for my husband, but we are so blessed to be able to make a living this way. However, since we sell every 49 days (the growing period for our flock) that means the long awaited "chicken check" only comes once every 2 months! Now, for some of you (teachers, etc.) I'm sure that wouldn't be any big deal to spread the budget like that. For me, though, being a former hairstylist, I was used to being paid daily. Without getting too much into all that, this week the "chicken check" came....... hallelujah!! Don't get me wrong, I support our income somewhat with photography and all, but it makes me feel much better to see that TYSON truck roll out of the drive every other month!!

So, off I went today with little man in tow to do some long awaited shopping. I have really been wanting to buy some new spring clothes, but since I'm on Weight Watchers and haven't yet met my goal, I didn't really want to spend a lot. I had to go to the mall to get some Clinique mascara (the only kind I can use), so I stopped in Charlotte Russe. I know what your thinking...... total teenager clothes. I thought that too for the longest time, but if you do some searching they really have some cute clothes. I love the tops I bought, and I think they are very "mom" appropriate! Obviously, I'm in a peachy mood because these are the three tops I bought...... notice a theme?!? haha

While we were out, we stopped in Dillards and bought Wyatt a new pair of Crocs. I know most of you are thinking they probably aren't the best shoes for a toddler who just learned to walk. YEP! You heard me correctly. He is OFFICIALLY walking!! As of last Wednesday. He just took off. Such a burden off my shoulders........ literally....... he is a heavy little guy! Anyway, he LOVES his Crocs and seems to walk just fine in them. The pair he has already are green and camo, but I wanted something a little dressier for church, going to eat, etc. I thought these were too cute. Plus, living on the farm, they are perfect for when he gets out playing in the dirt. I'm love anything  you can just hose off!
My last purchase off the day was this little cutie! I had NO intentions of getting this today, but Wal-Mart had them on sale for $89. You just can't beat that for a camera. Being that I take pictures all the time, I really wanted something I could just throw in my purse and go. It doesn't even compare to my big daddy Canon, but it is pretty good quality for what it is. The lady at the counter assured me that I could bring it back within 30 days if I wasn't satisfied. I am trying not to compare it to my other, since I was just wanting something that could take some decent snapshots. Plus, the COLOR is AMAZING!! I love this turquoise blue...... adorable. Isn't that all that matters anyway!?
Well, it's off to bed. I'm trying to do better about not being a slave to this computer. Although, sometimes a girl just needs a good blog!!


  1. I bet you do love that check coming in, it would be hard to wait 2 months for a paycheck!! 2 weeks is long enough for me!
    Love love the shirts you got, so cute!! Those crocs are adorable, yay for Wyatt walking!!!!
    Love your camera!

  2. Really cute tops. The first one is my favorite. I love crocs. They are Katie Lee's favorite shoes and she will wear them better than any other shoe.
