A couple of weeks ago, we took a family trip out to Woodfield Mall to see the Easter bunny and to do a little Easter shopping with Beckett. The Woodfield Mall (in Schaumburg) has always been one of my favorite malls in the area. Not only is this the first mall I went to when I moved to Chicago, but it really does have a little bit of everything, so you can find anything you are looking for.
This may come as a surprise, but I love to shop 🙂 Even when I’m not buying anything, shopping is just fun for me. And don’t even get me started on shopping for baby stuff. I’ve said it before, but it’s impossible not to have a good time when you’re browsing the aisles in children and baby stores.
You know what else is a good time? Holidays! Holidays are so much more fun with children. When we took Beckett to see Santa in December, she was not a fan and we got that stereotypical “child screaming at the top of her lungs” 1st picture with Santa. That said, we weren’t expecting a successful visit with the Easter bunny either, but she loved him! She’s recently really gotten into stuffed animals (notice Demi from Vampirina? She spotted him in a store and HAD. TO. HAVE. HIM) and I think the Easter bunny reminded her of a giant stuffed animal. Nevertheless, we were happy to get a somewhat normal picture of her for the holiday!
We also used the opportunity to pick up some new clothes for our growing girl. She just recently transitioned out of 6 month clothes (yes, she’s almost 11 months old, but she’s on the smaller side) so we needed some new outfits that would fit her. Especially an Easter dress! If you saw my Insta stories, then you know she found the perfect one and picked it out all by herself.
In the end it was a successful trip. Some of my favorite memories with my momma are our mommy/daughter shopping trips (I got this love of fashion from someone!), and I look forward to having those same memories with Beckett too.
Ps: we might or might not have stumbled into an A&W and we might or might not have had more than one beer float. Sorry, not sorry.
Happy Easter, loves! I hope you have a blessed weekend!
