Last week my mom and dad sat in a doctor’s office (the kind with a desk and chairs) and she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a mammogram, they called her for a second look, and the doctor saw a dark spot that he wanted to see closer.

These ladies are just like me.
1)  I wore polka dots on the way home from the hospital.
2)  My husband said, "Fortunately, she got her mom's looks!" and,
3) I rode in the back seat on the way home.
Well, there wasn't paparazzi outside.
And, we named our baby before we left the hospital. But, it's close. How about you?

One of the reasons I began our sale was that I wanted nice clothing for a good price. I wasn't looking for closets full of clothes for my kids, I just wanted to be able to spend my money and feel like I bought them clothes that would last longer than one rough day at the park, or through a school year. We didn't have money to buy more than the essentials, but when I started buying other's used items, I could afford the essentials and a few special items.
