Great Finds

As most know, I'm somewhat of an online shopping fanatic...and oftentimes forget what I've purchased until I stumble upon the bags and boxes on the porch when I get home from work at night.

I've been refraining from the "great deals" websites - Totsy, Hautelook, Gilt, Ideeli - because the more I've researched, the more I've realized they aren't that great of deals {some are, don't get me wrong}. More importantly, I've been trying to be somewhat fiscally responsible with our funds and instead, I've started a new way of shopping online - I load a bunch into my virtual shopping cart at night, shut down the computer and return to my "bag" in the morning to see if I really NEED the items I've loaded in there. More often than not, I don't. But I've also kind of gotten the rush of shopping, without spending any money. Weird, I know.

Well, today I had a few spare seconds while I was on a call and I jumped on one of my fave kiddo discount sites - Zulily - where I was so excited to discover a Solid Threads flash sale. As most of you know, I'm a sucker for a shirt with a funny saying....and I just loved these. And had to buy them...on the spot {sorry hubs!}.

Com'on,  Quit Playing With Your Dinghy and That's Bananas?? I'm in love.

And check out the rest of these shirts..some of my faves over the last fourteen months...
  • "You stack blocks, I stack chips" - ode to daddy
  • "Not only am I perfect. I'm Italian too"
  • "Not at the table Carlos"
  • "I still live with my parents"
  • "Do work" - shout out to daddy when he was on the road for a poker tournament
  • "Mommy's little meatball" - one of the first onesies I bought on an NYC trip
  • "Ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do you punk?" - St. Patty's Day shirt
  • Prom tuxedo made by a mommy at daycare for Primrose Prom

And then some of my fave baby helmet the time it seemed like the worst thing to happen to him. But now, I get just a tad bit emotional looking at how sweet he is and knowing how much that helmet improved our little guy's noggin. (To any parents considering it, it is hard, it sucks really really bad, but it's just a blip in the overall scheme of things. And if you can help prevent future issues from developing, please do it.)

  • "Just fixin' my melon" - quite perhaps my most favorite shirt he's ever owned
  • "Wish I was drivin' a Deere with my Papa Ron" - shout out to my dad =)
  • "You should see the other guy" - message to the haters who used to comment on his helmet "situation"

I just love looking back on some of these fun shirts...and remembering the great times when he wore them. To many more with this sweet, sweet boy.
