Yeah…I’ve been pretty absent around here, huh? I’m guessing that cute pictures of Izzy don’t “really” count as blogging. So, here we go with my random tidbits from the last week or so!
On last Saturday, we found ourselves at the mall. Izzy needed several fall wardrobe items that I hadn’t been able to find, so we hit all of the children’s stores first, with no luck. At least not in a price range I was willing to pay. So, we ended up in JC Penny. Right on time for a doorbuster sale, that was ending in about 15 minutes! Izzy ended up getting a dress, a denim jacket, a pair of comfy pants, and 6 shirts. Total? $137.28. We paid? $58.91! That’s a savings of$78.37! So glad we caught that sale! Oh, and that’s not all! We also received a $10 off coupon! So, we went back upstairs to the women’s section! And I saw signs that made me very, very excited! $2.97 clearance! You see, they’re getting ready to put out the fall things, so they have to get rid off all of the Spring merchandise. Me personally? I will throw a cardi or sweater over it, and wear it all year! I left with 7 tops. My original total was $223.78. Then with clearance, plus my $10 gift certificate, my total was………$24! That’s $199.78 in savings. Man, it was such a high, lmbo! Then, I made sure to fill out the survey on the receipt, and was able to print off a 15% off coupon to use next time I go! #winning
Those new clothes, plus what I recently picked up thrifting will come in handy for my new body, lol! I’ve been diligent on my plan (which hasn’t been TOO hard, except this weekend, at a bbq) and I have lost almost 6lbs, and 6 inches (collectively from arms, thighs, hips, waist) this past week! I can actually button my jeans now, instead of the pregnant-lady ponytail holder loop thingie!
Izzy is teething like a maniac! It all started about Wednesday, with a whole lot of clinging and fussing. Then Friday morning, she woke up way early, at about 6 am, very cranky. I could only get her to nap about 45 minutes, and could barely get her to eat. Bedtime…consisted of a lot of crying. She finally drifted off, for about an hour, and then I stayed up with her until 11. Slept from 11-3am, then back up. Then from about 4-6am, then back up. Then we drove to my parents, and she slept almost the whole ride. Couldn’t get her to drink anything, but she ate way more rib meat than I care to admit. But at least she was eating! She started getting very cranky, but she was able to sleep for the whole car ride home. Then, that night was basically a repeat of the previous night. I figured out that she wouldnt drink anything because sucking on those spill proof sippies was hurting her mouth. Then finally, Sunday morning, I could see the white bulge of the teeth(bottom canines) finally poking through! She seems much, much happier!
So…this post in long enough, so I’m going to hang it up, lol! Look for a vlog later in this week, I’ll actually SHOW you the clothes and things that I picked up!
