I'm Busy...Read My Blog

I found this t-shirt at the Mall of America this weekend.
I thought it was perfect, until I remembered that reading my blog would not actually fill anyone in on life here because that would require me actually blogging. So I just did the next best thing...made Ben take a picture of it and then put the t-shirt back on the shelf. It works. Kinda.

There's an overwhelming amount to tell you... Here's a few highlights:

  • There's a store at the MOA called American Apparel. It has nothing to do with America. It should be called If You Live in the movie Flashdance Shop Here. We like to call this outfit: What Not to Wear on Your First Day of School in America:

I did resist these socks...but it was hard. They would have gone so well with my sweatband I wear while running. Maybe I'll put them on my Christmas list.

I'll jump back on the blogging wagon soon...when all 4 kiddos head back to school.

No worries, I'm keeping track of the good stories ;)

  1. I got to go to the MOA this summer too. On a family VACA to Wisconsin. Hmm, can't believe I missed seeing that one blogging shirt there? Go figure. I *loved* the sock store too... and the magnet store... and the food. :-)

  5. YEs, please don't let her wear that on her first day, but I might need it for my '80s party. Wonder how my jelly rolls will look in that spandex?

  9. Love the shirt. You were smart to take a picture of it. Does much less damage to the bank balance that way.

  12. I know I'm 40ish... and those socks were popular when I was in high school... maybe even grade school actually... but I love it when a good thing comes back in style. I love those socks.

  14. You are keeping up a lot better than I am. I never get a chance to blog and rarely get to read others. Too much going on for us. I'm looking forward to Sept. 1st.

  20. I love the shirt, but need a plus size--don't suppose Charlotte Russe has morphed into a plus size store? Nah, I didn't think so. Just imagine my plus size bod in that slinky outfit OMG! Talk about striking terror into the hearts of men (and women alike). Bet I'd make the fashion 'don't' sections of magazines!
