So I’m wondering whether i live on the wrong side of the border. On a recent trip across the border down to Seattle, the boys and I had a fabulous time. And spent a lot of $$!! So in actual fact, for the sake of our budget, maybe it’s safe to stay here in Canuck land. Though it was fun while we were there. Aside from stocking up on goods at Trader Joes, we also came home with a few goodies:
Husband: a HUGE, heavy box of books sent to him from San Diego, highly discounted protein powder, a pair of boat shoes from Macy’s and a Ralph Lauren shirt I purchased for him from Value Village (a ‘guilt gift’ as in when you buy things for yourself, you come back with one item for your husband in order to butter him up as he absorbs the fact that you’ve negatively affected the bank account… do you ever do that or is it just me?)
#1: #2 came home empty handed (deprived 2nd child) but #1 came home with a bundle of 4th b’day presents and this little gem – my husband managed to score a MASSIVE amount of duplo Thomas stuff on ebay and used our American address to his advantage. This also kept the boys entertained while on vacation.
Me: Hmmm, so i may have gone a little overboard, BUT (rushing to my own defence) i did very well considering I didn’t spent that much! I picked up a pair of J Brand Jeans and a Tiny top from Anthropologie’s sale section and like #1 used my US address to have stuff sent to me from fellow blogger Ming. The rest of the stuff was from Value Village. This was my first Value Village trip and there was one in our neighbourhood and in five days, I went three times! I scored big time on the 50% off Labor Day sale. Americans sure know what good sale is. Anyway I’m looking forward to wearing and blogging these items and showing them off!
