tuesday remix: sister style

yesterday, my mom, megan, mimi and i decided to take advantage of a 50% off sale at one of our favorite thrift stores (of course we did). after we had eaten breakfast, i said to mimi, "do you want to get dressed and go shopping"? to which she replied, "NO"! and promptly ran away. i followed her into her "hiding spot", in plain view, facing a corner in the kitchen. "grandma and megan will be at the store when we get there", i promised her. "yes! grandma! megan! get dressed"! she cried, and ran directly into her room where we got ready to go. when we go to the store, she craned her neck and looked all around the store. "grandma, where are you"? she sing-songed. "megan, where are you"? i looked around. they were nowhere to be seen yet, so we started our shopping. we were making our way through the toddler clothes when mimi's face broke into a huge smile. "megan"! from this point on, mimi would not let megan out of her sight. megan would move to a new aisle and mimi would cry, "megan, where are you"? until we caught up to her. at one point we had moved away from megan and were entirely across the store. "megan, where are you"? she kept asking quietly. when she realized she wasn't around, her voice got louder. and louder. until she was yelling, "megan! i want to see megan, mama! where is megan? i want to SEE HER"! (seriously, kid. what am i, chopped liver?). needless to say, the rest of our shopping experience was spent following directly behind megan, so mimi could SEE HER at all time! what can i say? they girl loves her auntie. but then, who doesn't love megan bird? pretty darn cute.

speaking of cute, this week megan chose a lacy, black tunic for the remix. the color, shape and length make it a very versatile piece. and the lace makes it a little more fun than your basic black tunic. plus, it is super easy to dress it up or down, depending on where you're going. and the best part? megan told me i could keep it! hooray! let us know what you think!
