What's a girl to do?

What's a girl to do while waiting for 1) TA and 2) our 797C...well...She shops! I found this beautiful custom made dress online at a fabulous children's boutique late last night and I just couldn't resist!



I got both the girls matching monogrammed dresses (with their full names) in the color shown above. I am just so excited!!! My husband being an identical twin is about to kill me over the fact of purchasing both girls matching outfits. (and this isn't the first set) He said he has lived a majority of his life matching his 99.2% identical brother and he really doesn't want his children to have to suffer through what he did. As you can see, I didn't listen to him...that silly husband of mine! Anyway, I'll let you guys know how the dresses turn out once they arrive (in about 4-6 weeks)!

Congrats Leonard family on your LOA! That dress is adorable! Liv and Hannah are not twins but they wear the same size. When I buy them the same outfit, I usually buy different colors. The girls will ask why I didn't just buy the same thing so they each had one. So tell Keith that girls are different! (Just don't buy white because the dirt shows easier and if you have one that is neat, one that is messy...that can be a problem) Annabelle is going to want to look just like her sissy and I am sure Francesca won't mind being looked up to. So Shop away!
