I went mother’s day shopping with my boys this past weekend, and I think it might just be the last time I take all three at boys (5, 8 and 20 months) shopping at the same time, when I need to find something for me. It is tough though, since my husband works constantly, and I am with them 24/7.  Still shopping with three boys is just a lot harder than with two boys, because they cannot leave each other alone. My great blogging buddy Cheryl from Simply CVS had been very kind to send her $10 off $10 JCP coupon, as she could not use it… and I am incredibly thankful for her kind gesture.

It turned out to be a stressful JC Penney shopping trip, because on top of the three boys, I also found out that many of the sales items would go to full price at 1 p.m. I had no clue about this sale, and I did not find out about it until 30 minutes before the sale was over. I really wanted to get a nice top to go with the skirt, but I simply ran out of time and had to get in line.  
The clearance section at JCPenney was nothing to brag about, but then I fell in love with a skirt on sale….not clearance but on sale. I saw the skirt on a mannequin, and I just loved the shape of it. I have an anniversary coming up, and I needed a nice skirt to go out in on the extremely rare occasion that I actually go up. I wanted it in black though, and after a lot of searching I finally found it.
