At the bottom was a song she wrote:
Just in case you can't read it:
Love that girl!

For consignment shopping, that is! I know there are some great consignment sales going on all over the state right now, from Anderson to Fort Mill to Columbia to Rock Hill. This year I consigned and shopped at the Upscale Weesale in Rock Hill. Now, I shopped and consigned at sales when we lived in Anderson, but I've never seen anything the scale of the Weesale. It is truly a thing of beauty. The lady who runs it has to be one of the most organized human beings I've ever met, and because of her organization, she puts on a great sale.
Now, here's where I will do a bit of educational preaching. I get teased (and get a few eyerolls) over my fondness for Gymboree, which is often quite overpriced on their clothing. However, you can shop Gymboree and get great deals on clothing if you just wait for the right times! For example, when I went the other day, they had (and still currently do!) 30% off everything in the store, including clearance items. In addition to that, I had a 20% off coupon for my entire purchase, including sale items. Voila! My entire purchase was almost 50% off! In addition, I earned Gymbucks (click here if you're not familiar with that program), which is 50% off a future purchase if I stay within a $50 budget.
And then there's this little bitty girl, otherwise known as "Miss Trouble" around here lately. She crawls, pulls up, chews on, and pretty much gets into anything and everything. She keeps us hoppin' and gives us some serious attitude when she doesn't get her way. But, gosh, isn't she cute!?

Can anyone else believe this sweet girl is 5 whole years old? Gracious. Why did I blink and let the time slip by so quickly? We have watched Camryn grow up so much during this past year. She is such a little girl now ... it feels like all traces of our baby are gone. We've watched her mature so much as a big sister, and she is truly a fabulous one. We are so, so proud of her.
This year we wanted to do something different and special for Camryn's birthday this year. So, instead of putting a lot of money into a big party, cake, and decorations, we surprised Camryn with tickets for her, Mommy, and Daddy to Mickey's Magic Show. She loved it! I was bummed that my camera died as soon as we got there until they announced we couldn't take pictures anyway.
The next day, we came back home for a small party with family. We all enjoyed spending time together, and Camryn got enough fairy, Barbie, and Rapunzel stuff to keep her entertained until her 6th birthday!
