Slops on the Brain

As I've been perusing blogs this week I've read about pool closings, cooler temperatures, fall shopping, and back to school. Admittedly, a smile emerged across my face as I read my fellow Americans posting about summer's end because you know what that means for me and my fellow South Africans don't you? It means warmer temperatures, pool openings, spring shopping, and school's end.

Oh and how the beautiful, warm, sunny days have put a spring in my step (pun intended). I've been packing up the winter wear and sorting through the summer attire. Between our games, books, coloring and cuddling Tori has been helping me with my Spring cleaning as she has been off school this week with a bad case of the flu.

After packing up a garbage bag full of give away clothes (we have little closet and storage space so we go with the "get rid of it" motto) the other day, Tori asked, "Mom, if I'm feeling better tomorrow will you take me to the store to buy some slops?"

Well tell me how I could possibly say no to this face....



...especially after having such a tough go of it this week. So yesterday we added a quick trip to the store for some slops......


I'm sure you've figured it out by now, the South African term for flip flops is "slops".

So with summer days fast approaching slops aren't just on the brain they are also on the feet!

I definitely couldn't say no to that face either! My goodness, she is cute!

Love her new little slops . . . very girly and cute! : )

P.S. Do you remember how people used to say Blake looked a little bit like a Hasz? Tori and Nicki look a little bit alike too, don't you think?
