Our Day in Pics, Well, Sort of

Today was the first day in a long time that the three of us spent together.  Well, we spent the morning and most of the afternoon together, but every minute counts, right.  I had this great plan to document our every move with pictures, but that soon failed when I realized we were already leaving our first destination.  So you will have to use your imagination to fill in the blanks, you know, where the pictures should be...

Here we are leaving for our first destination...the outlet mall!  I love shopping, that's not news to anyone I know in the land of blogging or IRL.  Eric and I both got some money for Christmas that has been burning a hole in my pocket, but we have been so busy to spend it.  But we figured we would try to blow it all today.  I was semi-successful, poor Eric, not so much.  I got a new coat that I can wear in the Spring and in the Fall from the Gap, and a pair of jeans from the Gap that I have been wanting for a long time.  I love Gap jeans, but I don't love the price.  So when I got this money at Christmas, I knew right away that I wanted to spend it on some jeans.  Here is my new coat...don't mind the dirty clothes behind it!
You can't really tell by the picture, but it's a lovely shade of red. 

Then we ventured to Hobby Lobby!  I love that store but the closest one to us is almost an hour away.  But we wanted to get my diplomas framed, and we thought that getting them framed there would be a god idea because everything is always 50% off.  So we got 4 framed, I have more, but these were my top priority ones...
Now I just need a wall to hang them on!

Molly scored this for her room...
Then becasue we were so close, we drove to one of the only Chick-fil-a's in the state of Wisconsin.  My husband loves (that's an understand statement) Chick-fil-a.  When we knew we were moving here and there were no ones around our new place, we ate at Chick-fil-a everyday for 2 weeks before we left Ohio.  Sad, I know.  We also gained a lot of weight, too!  But I had just had Molly, so I blamed it on her :)  Poor Eric just had to buy bigger pants.  

Then we came home to this...
Isn't cut-out "M" so cute?!  My friend, Jennifer made it!  You know the one that paints, well she is now getting into sewing.  She also sent me a lot of other nice, wonderful things that she called my box of "Happy."  And it did make me happy.  She sent candy, some personalized cards, a Willow Tree Angel, Molly's shirt, and a book called "Mommy, Please Don't Cry.."  It's all about losing a child, and the sweet little things that your baby would say to you now that they are in Heaven.  It made me cry, but in a good way. 

Overall it was a really good day!  Right now Eric is at the office working on some cabinets for me that I will use in the high school when we move there.  Tomorrow I have a training for my Nursery and Pre-school workers.  Then it's Sunday, and the week starts all over.  Hope you all had a great Friday and here's to a great weekend!

I love your new coat. I notice it has buttons. Wish mine did...my new coat zipper only works when it wants to.

Sounds like you had a wonderful shopping trip.

Have a great week end.

Sounds like a fun and busy day. I love Gap jeans too. That is all I wear. They fit so well. I always get mine from the outlet. A little cheaper there. Cute coat too. I know that color will look fabulous on you. Love Chik-fil-a, but we don't have them here in Michigan. Boo hiss hiss. I wish they would bring one here. I know it would do well.
I love hobby lobby too. Girl all these stores..we would get along so well.

Well, at least you got some pictures! I like the new coat! That will be really nice for spring and fall weather. I need to get some new jeans too. I don't think I've ever gotten Gap jeans before.

I love Hobby Lobby too and we're about a hour away also. Boooooo! I wish I had one right near me like in Findlay. They really have some great deals.

I love the shirt for Molly and I'm glad you got a little something in the mail. It's nice to get those! I have that same book.

I am so glad your friend sent you a box of "Happy"...I will have to remember that and do it myself for someone someday!

Blessings and love sent your way!

Sounds like yall had a pretty great day! We don't have a Hobby Lobby around here and it just kills me when I see all the cute things everyone gets from there. That shirt is too adorable. It was very sweet of your friend to send you all of those things. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Oh my - I want that coat! Fabulous!

And the shirt for Molly is adorable! Love the cutout!

I had never heard of that book, but being part of a MOPS group, it is good to know there is something like that out there because we have several moms have experienced that loss. Thanks for sharing!

BTW, LOVE Chick-Fil-A here too but the closest one is 2 1/2 hours away :(
