Eff you Sophie the Giraffe

Okay, so I had a weak moment and bought one of those Sophie giraffes for Wyatt. I was hearing all these super good things from Shawntae and her little dude seems to really like his. So I got one from Barnes and Noble. Did anyone know that thing costs 24 bucks?! Yeah, lame. He literally looked at it for a second and threw it out of the stroller. Wyatt is obviously not sophisticated enough for a Sophie I guess. We walked around downtown for a bit and all the while I was feeling a little nauseated by the fact that I bought this stupid toy that he's literally not giving a damn about. So do you know what I did? I returned it. An hour after buying it, I returned it. AND THEN I BOUGHT THIS WITH THE MONEY I GOT BACK... (whatever)...

(awesome flats! 9.99 each!)

(cute denim dress from Target 14.99)

(This shirt is obviously a little too small... BUT IT WAS ONLY 5 BUCKS AT DELIAS! It says "I've got specs appeal".)

(12.99 at Delias! I have no idea what it says because it's in french)

Okay, I apparently added to the money from the Sophie return, but I kinda think it was well worth it. Wyatt deserves to see me in some rockin' clothes. That's kinda how I feel about that anyway.

  1. Oh God I know. Eli doesn't give an ef about his Sophie. I got mine off Amazon for 15 dollars and I thought that was excessive for something that is really no more than a cute dog toy.

    I LOVE your shoe picks!!! I want them! Great buys all around!

  5. My son played with Sophie for 5 mins. I wish I was smart like you and returned it but I kept it thinking maybe he'd like it. Wrong! 5 months later and he still won't touch the thing.

  6. New clothes are way better than that dumb ol' Sophie. Josiah will never meet her.
