Another confidence booster for this ever-enlarging Momma....

Tonight in the car, my mom, my mother-in-law, and I were all trying to decide where to do a bit of after dinner shopping. The store we had wanted to visit was closed, so we needed to make another choice.

I wanted to go somewhere where I could shop for something other than clothes, know. Clothes aren't really fun to shop for when you currently can't fit into any of them.

"How about Pier One, or something like that?" I said. Something with a home section, or kitchen items....something besides clothes, please.

That suggestion was met with my mother's response:

"Well, how about the mall?"

Groan, groan. There's nothing but clothing stores at the mall, I thought to myself.

"I don't really want to go to the mall, Mom....there's nothing for me there right now."

With a big smile on her face, walking right through the door of opportunity, she said:

"Well, they do have a Lane Bryant."

Motherhood Maternity, several of the anchor stores have maternity sections, Khols is a great choice. But NOT Lane Bryant

Oh, always such a sweet comment to hear!!! I have also heard from the preschoolers~ ""Are you still pregnant?"

Lane Bryant is NOT my favorite store!

I would want to go to Kohl's, never been there...

So where did you end up?

I just read this post to my Mom and we are both laughing out loud, especially since I can totally relate right now! I do like the fact that I don't have to suck my tummy in all the time...this I am happy about.

As for Abby's little Illini dress, don't think I haven't already thought about it heading to IL when the season is over! I'll be asking for your address come January. :-)
