I took the boy up to Starbucks today in an effort to leave the house without spending massive amounts of money. Can I be honest here? I’m pretty sure the REAL reason I could not be a stay at home mom (besides possibly acquiring a drinking problem) is that my shopping would be OUT OF CONTROL. I don’t have a lot of places to go with a newborn and, because it’s so freakin’ hot here ,it’s hard to get in outdoorsy stuff. That leaves me the mall or Target… and we all know that’s dangerous.
In any case, instead of driving I decided to suffer through the heat (it was 85 at 9am) and walk. Starbucks is exactly 1 mile from my house, so I thought it would be perfect. It took me almost an hour to throw on workout clothes, feed the boy, put on some makeup, and feed the boy again before leaving, but I did manage to finally leave the house. Instead of wearing a sports bra (none of them fit at the moment), I wore a nursing bra. This one from Target.
While I really LIKE this bra for every day wear (plus it’s under $20 – score!), wearing it to go on a walk was not the best idea. Running across the street in this bra to avoid oncoming traffic (even though I had the walk symbol)? Painful and almost a wardrobe malfunction. Lefty is bigger than righty and I’m pretty sure lefty was trying to make an escape. Yikes.
I knew I needed to buy new sports bras (TMI, but when I’m nursing I go from a small B to a DD), but this pretty much drove me to purchase them STAT.
I did a quick survey on Twitter the other day (because you know, instead of Googling you can just poll everyone about your boobs via Social Media) and pretty much everyone who either has big boobs, breastfeeds, or has big boobs because of breastfeeding recommended Moving Comfort.
Big boobs + running = new sports bra needed. I need a recommendation (and don't say Lulu, I'm not going to buy it from there). AND go…

I researched every style for what seemed like hours and finally decided that I would probably either like the Fiona or the Juno.
So what did I end up doing? I came home and ordered both of them. And then I also ordered a new pair of running/workout shoes….
So in summary: In an effort to save money, I went to Starbucks, came home and spent money.
Sounds about right, doesn’t it? *sigh*
Guess I should stop spending money on myself and buy some Father’s Day/Birthday gifts now, huh?
