I Fell in Love
Earlier this week I decided to stop by the regular Gymboree (I work at the outlet) to see what their Easter dresses looked like. I was hoping I wouldn't like any of them so then I would feel better about the ones our store got, but as I pulled up in front their doors were open and this dress was hanging front and center. I think I actually gasped when I saw it - it was love at first sight! I went in to admire it up close and then began hatching a plan to help me justify their purchase. Mike's sister Brittany is getting married at the end of May and I immediately called her to see what her colors were going to be...if the girls could wear them for two major occasions we would definitely get our money's worth. Well, I quickly realized my original plan was probably not going to work but I could not stop thinking about the dresses. I really don't splurge all that often and pride myself in being a bargain shopper (like buying the dresses the girls wore for Christmas this year when they were on clearance after Christmas the year before...when Addie wasn't even born yet), but when you fall in love, what can you do :-)? I went back yesterday to buy the dresses and have been smiling to myself since. I figure if the wedding plan doesn't work out for any of our 3 sisters that could have possible marriages in the near future, I'll try and get some good pictures of the girls in them (I have been daydreaming about this photo shoot also). I love, love, love them :-)!
