A New Winter Coat

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you'd know that last year I was on a quest for finding a new winter coat. You can read my first post here and my second post here.

This weekend I dropped Mica off to a birthday party and shopped with Isaak. Let me tell you, shopping with one kid is magical. Isaak was so sweet! It was nothing like shopping with the two of them. Usually Isaak hides, crawls on the ground and makes faces in the mirrors. All while Mica's laughing at him. It ends up with me holding Isaak in a football hold around the mall. Then I feel like a horrible mother. Not this time!

Back to the coat. I wasn't happy with Mica's coat when he was in Kindergarten. I needed to find one for Isaak. One that he can wear next year.

I did find one! It's a Kennith Cole Reaction, I got at Younkers. I've never heard of the brand. Maybe it's something special. Maybe it's not.

It's a nice thick coat that's not too puffy. It has get this, a metal zipper! That's what I've been looking for this whole time! It also came with a pair of jeans that has an adjustable waist and a shirt that I don't care for. I'll use it as a messy shirt for him.

Isaak liked it because it was green.

The price was originally $79.50, it was marked down to $49.99. I thought that may be the price. There were all kinds of signs saying, 50% off. I didn't know if that was 50% off original price, or the price marked. Regardless it had a metal zipper and came with jeans. I was getting it. They rang me up and it was $24.99! Score for Isaak and my pocket book! YAY! After season prices are the best!

That's a GREAT brand and usually quite spendy, so that rocks that you got it for such a good price.

Holy cow, that was a deal! AWESOME! And you're so right that metal zippers are very, very hard to find!

We went to Younkers last night, our first time ever...and they didn't have these, boo! I did see them online, but I didn't want to pay ten dollars shipping, hahahaha. It's still a fab deal though, even w/the shipping and I really liked the store!
