The Gift That Keeps On Giving

GIFT CARDS!


I have had so much fun shopping with other people's money this week!
My sister and my sister-in-laws gave me some gift cards to Charming Charlie for my birthday. I got this cute green purse and these flip flops. I couldn't model either of them for you, because I am still in my pj's and I haven't had a pedicure in a while. It's been cold!

I LOVE yellow box flip flops. They cost a pretty penny, but I think they are worth it. Especially in Texas when you can wear them from March to October. I hope Texas knows that March starts on Monday and it better start warming up around here! Anyway they are super cushy and comfortable and will last more than one season.


And my friend Laura gave me a gift card to Old Navy. I have been loving that store lately.

My regular tanks have been getting a little bit shorter lately? I needed some maternity ones. I was looking like that guy on the Simpsons. I think his name is Barney? His belly is always hanging out. I CAN burp like him though, so I guess it's appropriate.

I also got it in black.

Their flip flops are 2 for $5 right now. That is about 2o times cheaper than the Yellow Box shoes!

I also got a pewter pair.
And I love these light weight short sleeve cardigans. They are perfect to wear over tank tops or sundresses.
As usual at Old Navy, I got 2 of each thing. I do that when I find something I like. I also got this in apple green.



Uh oh! I just noticed a BLUE trend going on. What do you think that means?

Then on Wednesday when I got to work, I got a gift from Jennifer:



See I told you birthdays are fun. She got me my first peeps of the season. I LOVE peeps! And she also got me some super cute flip flops in hot pink and black. Which I really needed. And a fun pink mirror. I guess all that pink will even out all the blue I got.
We will find out if the baby is PINK or BLUE in 4 days!

Oh no you did NOT just introduce me to my newest vice. I NEED those flip flops like whoa. I must head to that store. It's a bit of a drive but appears to be worth it.

I wore yellow box flip flops the whole time I was pregnant!! (I was teaching and they were the only ones that were comfy enough to stand in all day!!) They are well worth the money though! :)

LOVE the Old Navy tops... so cute!!

Love all your new things. I saw a Charming Charlie's on our visit to Dallas and thought of you and a post you had mentioned before on it since I've been following your blog. I can't wait to check it out when we move there.
