Time to fess up...

to having 142 hangers in Lauren's closet. Yup, there are actually this many hangers with adorable little outfits hanging from them. Two-piece outfits even share one hanger, so I can't even say that the stuff is spread out a little.

Now, keep in mind this does span from size 6-9 month to 2T. I say this to make myself feel better. ;)

Oh well, that's what happens when a shopper is forced to wait years for their baby. Anyone else willing to admit how many hangers they have? It may be more than you think!

I have only bought two items of clothing for Sophie so far. I have received some things from secret buddys, but they aren't on hangers yet. It still seems too far off to actually hang them in the closet. My sis did give me two huge containers of my niece's clothes, which I think will fill the closet when it comes time to do so. Would love to see some of your favorite outfits that you have acquired for Lauren! How about a virtual Fashion Show?

I confess to having 97! Sad part of it is that our LID is March 4,08~ Can you imagine what this closet will look like next year?? My hubby says I need help. She also has 13 pairs of shows and over 30 hair accessories~ I have decided that anything else I buy has to be a 2T or bigger.

I have 57 but I have no dresser so all of her clothes are on hangers. But that number does not include the 4 boxes of hand-me-downs I have from my SIL. I have a rule for buying for Little Miss it must be on sale. I mostly stick to that, LOL.

We bought books and CDs instead of clothes. I refuse to tell you how many of those we had at the time of travel. Everyone has a weakness. Everyone.

Doreen said...

Shop away, you deserve it. In fact it is your right, Girl

Hundreds. But then I have two girls and they share a closet so I think you have me beat.

Gail said...

I know I don't even come close!
I didn't buy any clothes while waiting. I bought them once I knew how old she was (being an older mom)
As a matter of fact I am now buying clothes for the fall!
I only had summer clothes for Abby!

However I love those hangers! I haven't seen small hangers like that with the clips for hanging 2 piece outfits.

M3 said...

Hmm, now you have me curious... do I dare count the hangars in the girls' closet? Eeek!

Shannon said...

You are tooooo funny! I have some clothing passed down from my niece but I have personally bought 10 bright pink hangars!
Can you believe they made it to the ninth???? We are sooooo close!

I can't fit all of them on hangers in Mia's closet so I packed the larger sizes in rubbermaid tubs for storage until we need them. I am sure I have close to 142 as well! I keep telling my husband "Most pregnant women only have 9 months to shop but I have had 30 months!!!!"

Oh, I am not willing to go and count all of those hangers BUT I will tell you that I can hardly smush all of those cute little dresses over to add new stuff...must be right up there with your count :)
