Lingerie Shopping...

I'm writing this post...while wearing glasses. I now need to wear them all the time, I suppose. I've been living with headaches and it hit me today (after putting my glasses on) that I need to go to the eye doctor and have my eyes checked again and get some newer, cuter, stylish glasses. It stinks being old, but it's nice being able to see without your head throbbing. Oh, speaking of eyes. I'm looking for a good eye cream. To fight wrinkles and aging and stuff. Any of you use an awesome eye cream that you would love to recommend?? I can't even believe that I'm so old that I need to start using eye cream. I may go drown my sorrows in chocolate cake.

Amelia and I had a fun day. She woke up around 9:30. I didn't get out of bed until she did...I needed the sleep. We had breakfast, cleaned up, and then headed to playgroup with Jen & the girls. We love hanging out with them. Amelia thinks the girls are funny and they all seem to play well with one another. We've been so sick over the last few months, this was our first play date since last year sometime! After leaving playgroup we headed to get a gift for a lingerie shower that I have tomorrow. I knew it wouldn't take me long to pick something out, so I just put Amelia on my hip and walked in. Every saleswoman in the store stopped to stare at me - all at the same time. Looking at me as though I had three heads or something. Once I checked my head to make sure that I didn't grow two extra on the way in, I realized it was the 15 month old baby on my hip that was getting the stares. That's when I thought to myself, "are lingerie stores off-limits to babies?" Amelia did really well...we were in and out within 10 minutes. I probably won't take her with me if there's a next time though. I don't think she felt welcome. :)

After shopping for lingerie, we headed to Sam's for diapers. I also picked up a few spring/summer outfits for Amelia. They always have little Carter's dresses for $5 and you can't beat that price for play clothes. I had no idea what size to buy her, since she's already in 18 month clothing. If they don't fit, we'll find someone to give them to.

After Sam's, we came home and I made Amelia some dinner. She played for about an hour and then we started bath/bedtime routine.



She no longer wants me to rock her while being held like a baby. She wants to lay on my chest/facing me. She's getting so big, but I love that she still wants to be rocked to sleep. I just sit and kiss her and pray over her and then kiss her some more.

After baby girl was sound asleep, I decided a bubble bath was in order. I bought a new magazine at Sam's today. Sam's really is the best place to buy magazines. I bought this one in a combo pack with another for only $4. Quite a deal, huh?



And now I'm trying to stay awake while waiting on my husband to arrive home from his business trip. I'm looking forward to having him home. I think I'll make monkey bread tomorrow morning - just to show him he's my favorite.

Have a happy weekend!

Love to all,

LoL It really was/is a great post. I just can imagine that lingerie store- some people can be so snooty but I betcha they are worried about any "baby goo" getting on the products- you know how most babies always manage to have something sticky or spitty going on with them, but you go girl for shopping anyway!

About the eye cream, I am really enjoying L'Oreal Skin Genesis eye cream but I know that Garnier eye roller depuffer thing has gotten RAVE reviews from a bunch of my magazines- I'm sure if you go to CVS you will know exactly what I'm talking about once you see it- it has a metal roller ball on it. Also clinique all about eyes is a great cream but a little pricey :) Just wanted to give you a few options! Glad you get to see Alex soon!

Love,
Erin

They were probably thinking you it was weird that you were buying yourself something sexy while holding your baby. Ha!! Silly women.

I use Aveeno eye cream. I can't remember the name of the cream, but I really like it. And it is good for sensitive skin. The price doesn't make me want to vomit like so many skin creams do, so that's a plus!

And I agree, I always check Sam's children's clothes. We had fun yesterday and can't wait to do it again!! Love you!

Kiehl's Avocado eye cream is the BEST that I have tried!!!!! It is VERY affordable and available at Dillards. My second choice is Lara Mercier Eyedration, available at Glo. A good eye cream REALLY will change your life, hahahahaha.... or atleast the wrinkles around your eyes!!!

I'm laughing about the two-heads comments. A bit ago, I ran into VS to buy a replacement bra for one that had broken with my son. I knew it would be quick. But not one single person would talk to me or help me so I left empty-handed. Now, I know it was the kid thing. What's a mom to do! :)

Eye creams...I have a clinque sample one that I love. However, the garnier eye roller and olay generist ones are getting rave reviews. I guess eye cream is good even when you don't think you need it.

Oh and depending on your insurance (ours doesn't cover much for eyeglasses) www.zennioptical.com has great deals on awesome glasses. I buy my son's there every year and have bought ones for hubby and I too. The quality is great.

I never thought about taking a baby into a lingerie store either. Wouldn't think it is a big deal, but who knows.

I've been using an eye cream for years! I use Mary Kay's Firming Eye Cream, but I also like the Eye Revitalizer. If you use one that goes on with your fingers, use your ring finger and just pat it on. (I actually sell Mary Kay, if you're interested.)

It's kinda pricey, but I adore the Philosophy "Hope in a Tube" eye cream. I have serious dry/sensitive skin and bag issues with my eyes, and this is the best product I've ever found.

I pretty much have to wear my glasses ALL the time now and I don't like it. Being on the computer so much has really hurt my eyes. I need to update my script too because the headaches are pretty much constant. Boo!

The lingerie story cracked me up. Haha!

Loved reading about Amelia still wanting to be rocked. That girl is so sweet!!
