A year ago today I set up a Sitemeter account to track how many hits I have to this blog. The count is currently at 13,088. It amazes me that, in that last year, people have come to this blog over 13,000 times because they're interested in what I have to say. Or I suppose they could just be bored, but that's okay too.

I heard a great tip about clearance Halloween costumes at Target (thanks, Catherine!), so yesterday Emma and I went to check it out. This dress, at 90% off, cost all of $1.50 and she loves it! It was a struggle getting her to take it off for bed last night, and she put it on right away this morning as soon as she woke up. We're taking a walk with some friends this afternoon and I suspect she'll be wearing it for that as well.

Today I am thankful for this gorgeous weather! Right now it 75 degrees outside and sunny. Does it get any better than that?

We got that dress too! For Meredith..only we got at at 75% off, so we paid $3.50 more than you did :) I should head back to a different target and see if I can find any more treasures. We also got a butterfly princess dress and two other costumes. We are set for next year, and lots more dress-up options

That looks like a perfect dress for PawPaw's ordination and/or Davey and Abbie's wedding. What a value!

It looks like a better dress for PawPaw's ordination than for Davey and Abbie's wedding, I think, although Emma looks adorable in anything she wears.

Emma looks so cute. I missed the good deals though. Did find a little dress costume at Sears Grand for $3 :)
