Today I had planned on staying at home and getting ready for our next excursion this weekend, but being the "Goer" that I am, I decided I needed out of the house!
I had a couple of things to return to Target, so Wyatt and I headed out to H'ville to run some errands. I also wanted to see if I could find him a Halloween costume there. I had looked online, but nothing really appealed to me except $50 boutique costumes that I just can't justify! Morgan had really wanted him to be a monkey this year (since we call him that all the time), but all the monkey costumes just looked so cheesy. Anyway, today must have been my day because I found the CUTEST monkey costume! I had seen it online before, but pictures just don't do it justice. It is adorable. And, they only had 1 left. And, it was just his size. And, it was $20!!! So, I bought it!! haha.
While we were there, I ran across this dress! It was so cute, and I thought it would be great paired with a simple cardigan for this weekends beach wedding. Of course, it is a mile too long so I'll be spending tomorrow hemming up the bottom, but for $17 I couldn't turn it down.
After a few more odd and end things at Target, I left there spending exactly $55! I LOVE that place. All that for what 1 costume would've cost me if I ordered it from an online boutique!! With all the money I saved, I can get Wyatt the banana goodie bag from Pottery Barn :)
When we left Target, we decided to run and grab some lunch and go see Nonni (my Mama). I mean, we hadn't seen her since Sunday! I was having withdrawals. We talk numerous times a day, but if I don't see her a couple of times a week something's wrong!
When we finally made it back home around 1. Wyatt was passed out in the carseat. He was so exhausted! I brought him in, and he took a 2 1/2 hour nap (I squeezed in a couple of minutes of shut-eye myself). After nap-time, I decided to try this cute craft I had seen on the Martha Stewart website. I thought it turned out really cute! We did ours on black construction paper with the background in white. I only had a brown 5x7 frame, so I need to get a white one and I think it will look really cute in his room. I'm trying to do better about doing little things like this to remember his childhood. I hope to one day be able to get it out and show his kids!
Tomorrow I really have to get some things done, but it sure was a great day today!
