Today my FIL came over and watched Caleb so I could get out of the house and do some brief shopping. He and my MIL are so good to us and love their grandbabies. I mean what man VOLUNTEERS to come watch your snotty/poopy baby before he goes to work all night so you can get out of the house? I am very grateful!
First things first, I dropped Carter off at preschool. Today was pajama day for the letter "P". I just knew he wanted to wear his Cars 2 pajamas but he went with Angry Birds.
He's so precious. When I picked him up today, I asked "Did your friends have pajamas on too?" He replied, "Yes, mommy, it was pajama day, DUH!" Guess I deserved that one!
So, I went for a quick run (yes...I am addicted already) and did what any woman without kids would do...headed to Target! I found the EXACT mirror that I have been looking for to hang in my bedroom. I first saw it on Pinterest but it was one of those pins that didn't take you anywhere when you click on it. I thought I'd never find it. The bonus was it was on sale for $15! Winning! Next, I hit up Dick's Sporting Goods. I tried on several different brands of running shoes and really like the Brooks best. My girl, Mel, is a total Brooks girl. I'm hoping that I will be too. I will def keep y'all posted!
My new kicks! The deal with these...they were $119. Not bad. I had a coupon that I earned with my Coupon Sherpa app. The last time I went to Dick's I used the app for a coupon to be used with my next purchase for $25 off, which happened to be today's purchase. Plus I had an additional $10 coupon for filling out an online survey with my last purchase. So that was $35 off. Again...winning!
Now I know you are wondering, Lindsey, what is all this talk about calling you Minnie Pearl
or you may be saying just hush and announce the winner, yeah I know you've already scrolled to the bottom...that's cool.? Today I was wearing my new shirt from Jamie, at Southern Glow Airbrush Tanning, and it is super cute. It says "Glow Me". I knew it would get some attention!
I just realized I was in a purple mood yesterday...shirt, shoes...anyways, it's a really cute shirt!
I also wore my new Silver Jeans that Brian bought me. I specifically turned in front of him and asked did I get all the tags off? I didn't see any but wanted him to double check. You know where this is going...I did get a lot of looks but I thought it was just my glowing tan or my cute shirt. Well, about 7 PM I noticed a huge tag in a most obvious place! Really?!? How did we both miss that? Embarassing!!
Howdeeeeeeee! If you don't know Minnie Pearl then you are obviously not from around these parts! We watched this lady on our old console TV every Saturday night when I was a kid. SALUTE!
Back to shopping...I spent an afternoon last week on the Court Square in my hometown, Covington. I don't go there very often anymore. It's not that it's far but everything I need is right here in my town. I did some shopping as there are lots of neat stores there. I love to shop locally when possible!
Our Courthouse. Isn't it beautiful? My mom worked there for like 30 years. Look to the right at the water tower...it has the logo for the high school I attended. I was a Covington Charger! I love small towns!
I also love this ring I found in a jewelry store on the square! Our 5 year anniversary is this year and I really want to upgrade. I loved this one and a BLINGING ring guard that fits my engagement ring. Excuse the pitiful nurse hand and nails. What do y'all think about it?
Tonight my little Caleb ate corn-on-the-cob for the first time! He wasn't sure what to think. He just kinda stared at it for a minute then began to eat it on the end. Poor baby! I remember Aubree doing the same thing! Carter had lots of questions, like always, about where corn came from. I explained and somehow threw in there that it stops growing once it is cut/harvested/picked. His response "so corn is like my boogers because after I pick them they stop growing too, Mommy." Yes, Carter like your boogers! Seriously, people, I can't make this kinda stuff up! Hahahahaha!
Hahaha! Sweet little man!
And now for the moment you've all been waiting for...the winner is Laura from Serrano Style!!!!!! Congrats!! Laura is a wife, mom to 3, and is a runner. I enjoy reading her blog and you will too! Go visit her and ask her how excited she is to be the winner of a new wristlet/wallet??
I plan to do another giveaway when I reach 150 followers just to say thanks again! I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
