Monkey Face

I’m so very glad that it decided to turn chilly around here again.  Not.  Will this winter ever end???  Okay so I just might be exaggerating slightly.  It’s not like it’s snowing outside or anything.  It’s not exactly freezing.  Okay it’s only in the 40’s right now here in St. Louis today.  But that’s cold, right?  It should NEVER be in the 40’s in April.  At least not in the Lou!  Good thing toADORN sent this monkey hat for Banjo.  He has been able to wear it.  In APRIL.

IMG_8966.pngIt’s super cute though, right?


Here’s to hoping he won’t be wearing it in May.  😉

Spring has FINALLY sprung!


I don’t know about where you are, but here in St. Louis the sun is shining.  The flowers are blooming.  The grass is turning a brilliant shade of green.  Yep.  It simply glorious outside.  The spring has finally sprung around here!  I knew this day was coming eventually, but I also knew that the weather wouldn’t just suddenly change over night.  Especially not after what we dealt with for what seemed like eternity.  We had the LONGEST winter ever here!  I’m sure this sentiment resonates with the rest of the country; except of course for places like Florida and California.  Most of the country is highly envious of those types of places.  I’m talking the raging, green-eyed monster.  For St. Louis at least there have been signs of the coming days of honeysuckle and lilacs for quite some time now.  Albeit very slowly, but it has been warming up and the forecast hasn’t been predicting any of those crazy snow storms.  In fact the recent thunderstorms and even tornadoes (scary as those are) in the St. Louis area led me to believe that spring really was on its way.  Yes, I believe it’s FINALLY here!

With the spring weather also comes the need for some spring fashion.  That very need actually sent me to the mall last week, but I returned home with much disappointment.  I only made one measly little purchase.  A somewhat (long sleeved; mind you) spring blouse that definitely won’t carry me into summer.  All of the stores must not have been catching on to the hints of spring, because they only had winter clothing in stock.  Heavy sweaters galore, but nothing for spring.  It’s possibly that they are now stocked for spring this week, but I was at the mall LAST week.  I don’t have time THIS week to go back.

In my desperation to have something that I could fit in (remember I just had a baby 9 weeks ago) for this warmer weather I turned to my old standby.  Online shopping.  I will admit that typically I’m a little hesitant with clothes shopping online.  It’s difficult to often know the sizing or how the item will fit.  Generally I’ll only shop online at stores that I’m familiar with already.  Or ones that my friends have recommended.  So it took A LOT of bravery on my part to place an order on a deal site.  But after this purchase:

photo-90I will be purchasing a lot more off of that deal site!

I’m absolutely in love with this top.  I found it on the Jane deal site for only $19.99!  Isn’t that a steal of a deal?  I’m talking waaaaayyyy dandy.  It has these faux buttons up the back.  Seriously going to be my favorite all spring and summer long!

Jane features boutique clothing items for up to 80% off.  Each deal only lasts a matter of days or until they sell out.  So some of the more popular deals are only be around for a few hours!  Like these two deals:

Good thing they still have plenty of these cute maxi skirts!

Simple Addiction {Giveaway} ***ENDED***

Who doesn’t love a good deal?  That pretty much covers everyone.  It covers me especially.  🙂  You all know that I’m all about a good deal.  However, it’s possible that you don’t know to what extent I’ll go for a good deal.  Only my close friends know this about me, because it (like my fabric addiction) is just the slightest bit embarrassing.  ***The embarrassing part of it has more to do with the cringing that takes place.  You will ready more about that below***  In my case the deal obsession can be embarrassing, but necessary I tell you!  Recently I’ve decided that there is no reason for me to be embarrassed or keep it a secret from anyone.  Saving money shouldn’t be embarrassing!  It’s smart, right?  So at the risk of full disclosure I’m going to open up just a small part of my deal finding life to you.  This way all you deal lovers can possibly learn something new.  And those of you who have yet to embark on the dandy deal way of life will be sucked right in.  😉   Are you ready???  Here’s the extent to which my good deal seeking goes…

Basically I don’t ever buy anything at full price.  For those rare times when I do have to pay full price I simply cringe when I make the purchase.  Then every time I see the full priced item in my house I’m reminded of that horrible day.  Then I cringe again.  Over and over.  A very tragic cycle.  It’s sad really.  But I always go back for more.  Which means I  love saving money and that’s definitely not a bad thing!  I adore finding a good deal.  When I spot something that’s a good deal that can be used, for say a gift 6 months away, then I just buy it right up.  This comes in handy especially for Christmas gifts.  There’s no reason to pull your hair out shopping in November and December.  Buy gifts as you find them all throughout the year that’s what I say.  Like over the weekend I actually  purchased this adorable alphabet stamp kit:

Okay I may have bought more than one.  But they are adorable and…

At only $9 each they make very dandy Christmas gifts!

Think about it… Add a cutesy little scrapbook…
