Holy Toledo Batman! A Post Without Any Dishes!

Hi Everyone!

My parents head to Florida every year in the middle of March and stay for a month. I miss them terribly when they are gone. But, one of my favorite things is, my mom shops when she is down there and always gets me a new summer purse. Ya gotta love that! This year when they got back (just a couple of days ago) she must have had a really good time shopping because I got all kinds of goodies. Of course the little princess got the mother lode!

However, I can't complain. I got a few new things as well. And lots of blue! When I saw all the blue things she got me I told her I was going to use these for my blue Monday post. She immediately said, "Diann, you make sure your readers know that I bargain shopped! I found a great outlet mall!" LOL That would be my Mom! So, I told her I would show at least one price tag! LOL

Here is my new summer purse. It is a Tommy Hilfiger canvas bag with green, blue and white print. She also got me the lime green new wallet. She said she couldn't find an exact match to the purse but, figured this would work.

She also got me a plain simple t-shirt and a beautiful scarf.

As for the Princess, here are her new shoes. the top two she has been wearing as you can tell. My little 2.5 year old is a major shoe freak! And she has been for over half her short life already! LOL

And all her new outfits. There is a shorts outfit missing because it is in the dirty laundry already.

A cute summer dress with matching "bloomers". I just love blue and white gingham.

And of course, no summer wardrobe is complete without a new bathing suit and cover-up!

She also got several new toys.......naturally!

I am not showing Troy's goodies because he didn't get any "blue" items. LOL

Now, a little bit of mosaic playing!

Everyone have a wonderful Monday!!

  19. What a special Mom you have to think of you when she's out of town. My favorite is the purse, it's a great summer bag. Tell your Mom--great bargains.

  20. You have some wonderful blues here & a very wonderful Mom , too !

  21. What a generous mother you have - so many gifts.
    Maybe she should be sharing where this outlet mall is? :-)

  22. Look at all that loot. I always take my granddaughters something too when we visit.

  23. awww those are lovely items! love your new purse! ;) and the your little ones shoes are all beautiful! little fashionista!

    u may view mine here

  24. Wow nice, Mom! I love the blue purse and all the kiddo clothes too. Happy Blue Monday!

  25. Ahhh the Beall's Outlet tag. You can find me at 2 different Beall's Outlet's every Friday (unless i'm out of town). That place practically GIVES stuff away! Top off your purchases w/ the under 55 discount on Friday (or over 55 on Monday) plus the punch card for every $10...I regularly leave with items that cost me less than $1. Last Christmas I bought my aunt a gorgeous Coldwater Creek blazer for $14.99 (plus the 15% discount) - it was in the catalog for $80 - WOO HOO!
