is it odd to say i have missed you all like crazy??:)
well i have!:)
so friday morning came and the girls were all besides themselves with giddy excitement.dave had a cold that was kickin into overdrive so we decided the level of effort needed to help me with two excited and undecided shoppers and a three year old was just too much.
so he stayed home with aubrey and i made the trip solo!
i do not like to drive.
i like to be the one who gets to look around...take in all the scenery...wonder about the people who live in those cute little houses...admire the view.
and driving in the big city for me is like getting a root canal without novocain...ugh!:(
but i did it and we arrived in our parking garage unharmed and happy.
funny...the valet guys probably thought i was the biggest dork on the planet as i frantically looked around for the place they wanted me to pull-up to...tried to organize all our stuff, make sure we had every ones money etc and then had to go back to the van twice cause i forgot something!:)
since janey had to order her new doll, she brought felicity along for moral support.
she is hoping for a horse for her birthday.
every girl needs a horse right?
riley decided in the final hour that she wanted a doll after all so she bought julie.
i think it really had a lot to do with just wanting some else's hair to do.:)
i was secretly glad she picked julie...she's from the 70's and all her "stuff" reminds me of all my "stuff" when i was a kid. i've heard other mamas say that so i guess i'm not alone there.:)
a happy, happy few hours for sure.
the city really is amazing.
i could live there if i never had to drive anywhere
or park anywhere!:)
we met up with my friends and had a yummy lunch at cheesecake factory.
then we checked our gps and prepared for the long sloooow traffic filled ride home.
the girls were happy cause they had lots to play with, talk about and plan in the backseat.
i was happy cause i had two of my besties in the car.
when we got home riley said..."poppy was right...you guys DO talk a lot!"
it was so wonderful to see my girls bonding with and loving on my friends.
there was so much:
and so, so much more.
and i got to see TWO movies in one day!
how often does that happen??:)
playing iassociate after pizza night
i finally caught dave's cold sunday evening around 10.
but it didn't keep me from staying up well past midnight with my tech-savy apple pal laura
my phone was in serious trouble
i thought for awhile it might just end up in the trash.
(or i would be upgrading a lot sooner then i planned)
but she fixed it and it's all good.
that cold has kept me out of the computer scene for a few days and now i'm playing catch-up.
i have so much to tell you and show you in the house.
we have been busy.
and loving every minute of it.
have a happy day,
1. good friends
2. making my list and checkin it twice
3. a warm december...so far
4. a new advent calendar
5. a three year old to read to me and take care of me when i'm sick:)
