Some thoughts since our last meeting:
-Like most, I wish I didn't have to work. But even when I'm off, there's so much to do at home, that I end up more tired than when I just haul myself to the salt mines. Hanging out with a 9 month old all day is NO JOKE. Avery is Miss SuperBusyBee (must! crawl! and grab! anything shiny! or sharp!) and doesn't seem to understand my need to sit down once in a while and not carry her 20 pound HEFT everywhere.
Is that just life? Probably. Especially being a mama? Most def. Love it. But it's a tiny bit...totally exhausting.
On the flip side, I have lost all of the baby weight! How, you ask? Nursing plus braces plus carrying 20 lb bulk is a great workout, apparently.
-Anthro felt a little blegh to me in the last, oh...9 months? Mainly because I was so busy and tired, and solely browsing via the interweb...instead of going into the actual brick and mortar stores where I usually just feel so exhilerated. But I still got a little tingle in my toes when I saw these today:
LOVE being yellow. And Asian in general. Ha! Well, this skirt is so sweet and perfect for a stroll to brunch on a foggy Sunday morning. Even better if paired with the sweater below.
But I almost swallowed my tongue when I looked at the prices. Is it just me, or is $350 crazy for a skirt, and $390 excessive for a pullover? Unless it's coated with platinum baubles and was worn by Kate Middleton and is wrapped in stock tips from Buffett? That made me a little irritated. Like, Anthro, get a grip, already!
I told our teenage babysitter about my love for all things Anthro, but not its prices.
She said with a little smirk,"Who do they think they are--Prada?"
