Maddie is a hoodie/jean girl too. We don't have any clothes that would be appropriate for holiday happenings. I am so glad you had a wonderful experience, and I agree about the 6 garment limit. Seriously....


Yey! Unsuccessful shopping trips are such a bore, so I'm glad that yours was successful in more ways than one! Isn't God so kind that He even cares about shopping and outfits? I love Him for that!




It drives me crazy when stores have a limit on how many items you can try on in the dressing room. I'm usually too impatient to go in more than once, which means they most likely lose out on a sale from me as it's not often that I find the item I love on the first go round. I usually go to stores that don't monitor their dressing rooms, like Kohls and J.C. Penney's.

What a blessing, friend!! And it makes me super-thankful that we don't have any fancy holiday plans. If we do in the future, I'm going to enlist your prayers and possibly beg you for some hand-me-downs from Miss Audrey. :) Can't wait to see her in her new clothes!
