Oh what, you're sick of reading my Halloween post over and over? Fine here's a new one :)
The mid-west might not have beautiful mountains, fresh air or tolerable winters but one thing it does have is good shopping! This, next to family & friends of course, is the one thing I miss most about Illinois. I mean it was definitly an upgrade in the shopping department coming from Logan, UT but I was a little dissapointed when Denver (or Colorado--hey I'm willing to drive for some good deals) didn't have some of my favorite stores. But with the recent opening of IKEA, Stake n' Shake and now H&M I'm feeling more and more at home with each grand opening!
I do have to take some credit for the new shopping additions to Denver seeing as how I wrote a letter to both IKEA and H&M and they both wrote me back saying they would look into opening a store in this region.
I was so excited when H&M announced they were opening a store on the 16th Street Mall downtown. I would have prefered it to be in an actual mall, but I'll take whatever I can get. I love H&M for their great prices, unique yet simple style and adorable and affordable little boys clothes (it's so hard to find cute boy clothes for babies/toddlers!).
So a few weeks ago I dragged Karen to H&M with me. Here our our adventures:
Karen and I were SHOCKED when we walked up to the store and there was a line around the block!
the pretty new store!
the actually do sell cute clothes there despite what these pictures are displaying!
