...in the pink of things...

A trip to a very boring, nothing-to-write-home-about WALMART
the other day .....

I wasn't buying anything earth-shattering...
just toothpaste..
shaving creme for Mr. Sweet...
odds and ends that one must buy occasionally.

I spied this display of PINKS


 it's funny how just some pink bottles of 
SOAP
could bring a smile to my face....

and, then, on the next isle,


my heart skipped a beat...
she was the most adorable little tiny thing
in her pink headband...


with a soft, warm, cuddly pink blanket over the top of her stroller...


I didn't know her or her beautiful young mother from Adam
but I fell so in love with this baby I begged the mom
to allow me to take a few photos.


 This sweet, generous mom was thrilled...
and I told her I wanted to share these photos with all my blogging friends
as they all loved babies as much as I do.

This cute  black and white flower on her headband was
almost larger than her little tiny, pixie face
that I had the urge to smother with kisses.


THEN, I was reminded that I needed to buy a
BABY SHOWER GIFT
for another baby girl, due very soon...


...an adorable and PINK warm blanket with owls...
and a tiny owl rattle....



What a lovely trip to Walmart THIS turned out to be....


And, in the spirit of leaving you with a tidbit to snack on...


 A package of store bought cookies
become
MOVIE STAR cookies when you add this luscious glaze


XOXOXO, bj

  4. Oh wow! You certainly know how to make a morning a Walmart sound wonderful! The pink soap looks like it would fit perfectly next to my sink. My bathroom's theme is pink floral.

    The baby is adorable! And that strawberry glaze and the cookies look delicious!

  13. It is wonderful when a dreaded errand trip turns into something special. I would have fallen in love with the "baby doll" too! What a sweetie in her stroller. I see you found lots of pinks. I am finding a lot of pink everything for fall, shoes to coats.
    Cute post. Happy Labor Day weekend bj.

  20. Such an adorable, precious baby! :) Sometimes I just have to leave due to the screaming children with less than stellar parents. I feel so bad for the little ones but can't take the screaming.
