Wild Card Wednesday: Miss Mindy's shopping day





From The Kept Woman who knows how to treat a dishwasher....




Today my friend Jill and I did a "What Not to Wear" with another friend Mindy....she had recently gotten some birthday money and wanted some fun clothes that she could still be a mommy in but not in sweats all the time. We had so much fun! She ended up getting a ton of stuff, from shirts, dressier shorts, shoes, accessories, even a bag that wasn't a fanny pack! We had a great time. I really had to restrain and not buy anything, but I did cave for one little purchase.....



Isn't this the cutest little thing you have ever seen?? I got it for a steal so it doesn't really count. I didn't get to eat lunch with the girls since I had to pick Will up from preschool....



The other reason I had to restrain from shopping was I had to replace my camera. Sadly I left it outside Sunday. Will had asked to take pics with it. It was sitting on the steps of the play structure. When I was running around the house looking for it on Monday to take pics of the lemon poppy seed muffins.....I couldn't find it. With a pit in my stomach I glanced outside. It was sitting there....and it had rained for almost the previous 24 hours.


ETA: My dream camera is a Canon Digital Rebel XTi......this little baby....


I was going to get one in July anyway....Mike had ordered me one when he was home on R&R....but they were backordered. So I was just going to wait....but now the time has come to take the plunge and get my dream camera. I can't wait to get it!!



btw, my early Mother's day present got here....but no camera to take its pretty little picture in its pretty little blue box.



Plenty of M's to choose from with Mindy, muffin Monday, Mike, Mother's day....



happy Wednesday!

You didn't say what the dream camera is! I think I would have nearly cried had I left my baby outside in the rain!!
I decided I want satellite radio for Mothers Day. Let's see if I get it :-)
Happy WCW, and I played too!

Do tell..we would love to hear the details of the dream camera. I think the other one being left in the rain was a 'sign' that you really NEED the new one. :)

I have left two cell phones out in the rain, and one home phone. Good fun. Whatcha getting?

Arlene- I added a pic of it.

Stacy-I had ordered it once before and since it was backordered, I took that as a sign to wait...well, I got another sign!

Kami-I think I threw one home phone away...we can't find it anywhere! We even tried the "phone locater" thingy on it...never found it!

Hey girlfriend! Love the purse :)

And I'm done with finals in only 2/5 weeks! can you believe it? Then this summer will be much better - not nearly so busy. Lots of time to hang with the boys, swim, decorate (and shop of course :)

(thanks for the comments on the chair :)

What an adorable purse. What was in your little blue box? Hopefully something awesome.

It was the heart tag bracelet that he had hand engraved with my initials. If I can figure out how to post a pic from my phone, I'll take a pic of it....otherwise my camera should be here my Mother's day.

Sorry about your camera, but at least you get the new one early!

I'd be so lost without my camera...I love the new one you are getting. A friend of mine just bought the same and she lovers it!

Carmi said...

Ooh, I've had photographer's nightmares like that: leaving the camera in a bad place, dropping it, having it stolen...

I once actually DID drop my camera. While the flash was attached. Shattered the base of the flash and destroyed the camera's electronics. I paid a $25 service fee and they nicely agreed to repair it under warranty (it was three months old!)

The silver lining is you'll end up with a kick-butt camera. Can't wait to see what you capture with it!

Is it wrong to be envious of you...I totally love the rebel...and one day....one day....I'll bide my time.

My Mother's Day gift this year is a LIME!!!!!
The Trek Bike!!! I cannot wait but I will probably post about it so just disregard what you just read.

Oh...yeah a little tidbit for you....I tagged you!
