So, Little Miss Blossom was definitely due for some time with me as she feels left out a lot (although from the looks of this blog lately, she has had a lot of attention!). She needed a new pair of jeans so, I decided our "date" would be to go in town and shop. Hmmmm... that is NOT her idea of fun!
First we stopped at Sonic for Happy Hour 1/2 price drinks from 2-4pm. I figured she'd want a strawberry slush, but I told her she could order any kind of MEDIUM sized soft drink. She picked a Coke. Our kids are not usually given an option of choosing a beverage that is caffeine laden let alone a "MEDIUM." SO, the option of having a Coke -and a BIG one at that- was too much to resist! I offered flavor shots like cherry, vanilla and chocolate... but, NOPE - plain old Classic Coke!
After that, we headed to Old Navy to try on jeans. We had a LOT of jeans to try on. We were NOT successful. They did not fit in a way that she liked. Rats. BUT, we were successful in making a trip to Old Navy fun... She wanted to look at the mannequins. There is one girl one that has blonde hair and a pony tail. Blossom LOVES this particular mannequin - it is like a GIANT Barbie! What's not to love!! She insisted on photos of herself with her giant barbie friends! Luckily, I had my little point and shoot tucked in the pocket of my purse!
We headed to ROSS Dress For Less and did find a cute pair of jeans. Mission Accomplished! Then we had a few errands to run - things needed for supper amongst other things at Wal-Mart.
The check out line was sloooooow. So, she asked to take some pictures with my little camera. So, this is a few minutes from her perspective! I'm wondering who will be next for a date with mom!!
Sheesh... maybe I should let her take pictures more often???
