Banana Coffee Whoopie Pies…

Dear Maurices,

First I want to say thank you for always having the cutest clothes that I find most appropriate for my age and position in life….being an almost 35 year old mom that is:-) In the last few years I have come to the realization that I just cannot pull off the young adult/teen styles anymore.

Thank goodness for you being a great store. You have become my all time favorite place to shop now. Did I say shop??? I meant WINDOW shop…I go in and just wander around looking at all the delightful outfits that are on display there.

But I have one big question…WHY do you have to layer 3-4 tops to get that cute look??? I come in and think, “Yea, that is adorable.” Walk around, find all those pieces, try them on, look in the mirror, and WONDER where the cute outfit went???

3-4 layered shirts on this cookie lovin’ body isn’t working out so well . And that is before I put on the necklace and scarf that was also on the hanger.

I think that is the problem…I don’t have a hanger shaped body:-) But that sure doesn’t stop me from coming in each month and trying on more layered things. I promise one of these days I might even purchase a few of those layered items…

(Maybe eating whoopie pies wasn’t the best food for my non hanger-like body.)

See You In A Few Weeks,

Please tell me I’m not the only one with shopping troubles:-)

    Maurices is one of my favorite places to shop…very cute and affordable clothes. However, I don’t understand why you have to layer 3-4 tops either…I’m good with 1 or 2!

    Whoopie pies look awesome!!

    These look so good! I’m not a big coffee fan, but I love banana and chocolate or peanut butter so I might try subbing one of those for the coffee. Since there is banana, can these count as a breakfast dish? :)

    Found you through Paisley Passions–these look delish! I love anything with white cake mix and banana. Please stop by and join my followers when you have the chance! I have a banana recipe you might like to try :)

    I also have a real issue with the layering. It looks great on the mannequins…why not on me? ;) Maybe I’ll feel better if I eat a whoopie pie. ;)

    Thanks for joining my Weekend Bloggy Reading party. :)
