light bulb went off or something

I'm not sure what happened but..... After we decided on Lynn Marie's name it happened. What you might ask? I immediately started noticing things, baby things. Its crazy. It really is like a light bulb went off. I am now aware of discount clothes. This wait is going to be stinkin fun..Oh now, I am not buying anything, I promise, but looking sure is fun. I spent 2 hours at Kohls and found the 70-80% off rack...That was fun. By the way, Kohls has a whole bunch of pretty ladybug dresses on sale right now (9mo-24 mo). After Kohls, I went to Target and now I am searching for bedding that I know we won't need for a long time. I just can not wait to get her room cleared out. Hopefully I will get a lot done during this garage sale preparation.
Also at Kohls are some beautiful framed prints of Chinese letters with the words love and kind and such..

So no, I am not buying. Looking is fun. Dreaming is fun. Imagining is fun. We are blessed.

Someone had commented that perhaps we should call our daughter Lynn Marie as in a first name and that's really pretty. Gotta talk to hubby about that!!!

BTW, I forgot to mention that my old college neighbor is adopting from China. They are 9 months into the wait!!!

I say "Go for it and shop till you drop". It's way too hard to pass up those adorable baby clothes and toys. Thanks for signing our guestbook for Hope. I will continue to keep our baby webpage but we have also started a new blog. So feel free to check it out when you have a chance!! Take care! Cheri

When I first saw Lynn's name, I immediately thought of it as LynnMarie - all together as a name. It is such a southern thing. One of my good friend's is named RoseMarie and I always thought it was so pretty. On the shopping front, GREAT willpower. I also second 'www.bargainwatcher.com'. 95% of Sheridan's clothes are from their sales.

The 2 name thing is not a bad idea at all. Our daughter's name is Emmaleigh....I love the name Emily, but I really wanted a different twist on the spelling, so I used Emma Leigh and made it one word!! Happy waiting!!

Hi Amy, Thanks for the kind comments you left on my blog. I LOVE your website. I can't wait to read all about your wonderful journey to your baby. You are doing so good to have not bought anything yet. I cannot control myself (lol). I hope you don't mind if I add you to my blog roll. Take care.

Hugs,
Jonni

I consider it retail therapy for the wait but only every now and then... but when I do it feels GOOD. Go for it! Thanks for the comments on our blog!

You must have amazing will power. I either have to stay out of the baby department OR buy something....it's usually the latter! ;) It is fun to shop for baby stuff...isn't it?
