Today the girls and I took a small trip to the Town Center Plaza in Leawood.... the super nice and fancy part of town that resembles the Plaza. They have the neatest stores that are "oh so expensive" but fun to walk through!!

We went through Bath & Body Works, where they were having their "Up to 90% off sale!" summertime sale. I had $35 in gift certificates to spend there, and somehow.... somehow I spent a majority of it on everyone but me. The girls each got an American Girl lipgloss for $2 (clear of course), and some shower gel ($2 something). Plus they are sharing some Freesia lotion ($2.38)... and some shampoo for $1.87. I managed to get some shower gel for $2.37 & some of my favorite lip treatment (Cinnamint by Bigelow), and some tinted lip gloss for $2.00. Can't beat that.

So, we walked down a ways, and Katie spots Limited Too.... I had never gone inside before, never had a reason to go inside. But I guess Katie's getting to the age where clothes are a hot commodity for her, so we went inside to check it out. Oh my, were they in clothes heaven or what?! They were "ooh-ing" and "ahh-ing" over everything. They were acting as the sisters I've always imagined they would be like as teenagers. Imagine this conversation:

Madison: "OOH Katie! Look! Isn't this precious?"

Katie: "Ahhh! Madison! That would look so good on you! and look! it's your favorite color!"

I searched for my favorite section of the store, the clearance part. :) They had a 40% off the lowest price marked, and I found the girls each a shirt that was "oh so cute!" for $10 a piece. I think I'm gonna have to tell Daddy it's time to go "back to school" shopping soon. There were so many cute stuff there, and if we go to San Antonio, this stuff would be perfect year round.

Then we walk to Pottery Barn for Kids. They start squealing over all the pinks, blues, purples, yellows..... everything I've always wanted to decorate their room with, but haven't. Maddie kept saying "oh, I want THIS bed".. then later "No! THIS is the bed I want!" Very cute stuff, but oh so expensive!

I enjoyed my time in Williams Sonoma, imagining myself making foccacia bread or some other fancy dish, with all the wonderful utensils they offer there to make your life easier. I was rudely brought back to earth when Maddie started complaining "this store is SOOO boring Momma! Let's go!" OK ... will have to make another trip withOUT that little blondie.
