I’ve had several friends ask me how I possibly keep my 6 year old occupied long enough to take him with me shopping. The answer is simple…he’s been shopping with me since he was probably about a year old! It started out with having enough toys to keep him entertained. Then we moved on to snacks. Then the ipad was a life saver. And then he got too big to fit in a stroller so I was certain he would not last longer than a store or two. But he has surprised me and is quite the little shopper/helper. I’m sure his future wife will love me for this. =) A couple of weeks ago, we made a trip down to Westfield UTC Mall to do a little shopping (I also had to pick up a suit my husband was having altered at Nordstrom). We got there around noon so the first thing we did was stop by Lemonade which I thought was just going to be a little lemonade stand…turns out it has quite the menu!

After lunch we were off for a bit of shopping. I hit up a few of my favorite stores first…Madewell and Zara. I shared these overalls on Instagram and Facebook and got an overwhelming response that I NEED them in my life. I think YOU do too! =) I also got a lot of questions about my tennis shoes. I am wearing Vans hi-tops (BTW, there also happens to be a Vans store in the mall). I seriously considering snagging another pair of them. They are SO comfy…and remind me of my youth. The funny thing is…my son said I looked like a teenager when I came down the stairs wearing them. LOL. He actually has a pair too so we look like twinsies now.

Then I decided to stop by Lette to pick up some macarons for my hubby for Valentine’s Day. But I wouldn’t give them to him until I got my IG pic of them. They are too pretty not to share. You can see what I posted here.

And last but not least, I took my sweet boy to the LEGO Store and Geppetto’s. He was obsessed with the wall of LEGO’s separated by color. I have to admit, I seriously considered buying myself a stash of pink Lego’s because…why not?!? We finished our afternoon playing on the little playground structure before we made our way home. I think it’s safe to say that we both had a great time!

Thank you to Westfield UTC for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.

      He sure is! He usually pushes the burst button so I end up with 4736383837 photos on my phone, but he actually enjoys taking pics so it’s a win/win! šŸ™‚
