A little this, a little that…

Oh my goodness!  Are you ready for this ARTIC BLAST??????  I am not!!  I am pretty sure I am not ready for single digit temperatures!  Ready or not, it sounds like it is coming! 

I decided that Hayden and I would get out and do a little running around this afternoon since I figured we would be cooped up in the house for the rest of the week.  I was looking for something to wear to an event on Friday, so we went to several places this afternoon.  On the way there, we passed two Sonic Drive-Ins.  Hayden proceeded to throw a fit each time we passed one.  I have to admit, I believe I have created a monster!  He may or may not be a little crazy about a strawberry slush from Sonic!  So, the third Sonic we came to, we drove on in and got that precious boy a strawberry slush!  I couldn’t let him throw three fits in one day!


Here is what else he wanted while we were out…Every balloon at the Dollar Tree (ok, so I gave in and got him a balloon).  Sippy Cups at TJ Maxx.  Popcorn at Target (right after we ate dinner at Chick-Fil-A).  Every ball at Target.  The dog mannequin at Old Navy.  A three foot tall ceramic dog at Ross.  And…some jewelry from Stein Mart.  I am sure there were more, but those specific items are what I can remember for now!

A funny story…last time we went shopping at Kohls, Mom (Nanny) was with us.  Well, last time, we met up with her in the jewelry department.  I had told Hayden to yell “Nanny” so we could find her.  Well, tonight when we (just Hayden and I) were in Kohls, Hayden started yelling “Nanny” when were walking by the jewelry department.  So funny!  Crazy how they remember things like that! 

Can I just say it is so much fun shopping with a one year old!  Ha!  I have to say, he really was GREAT today!  He was such a trooper with all the in and out we did!  I guess he might be a pro by now though. 

Here is what else we have been up to the past few days…

Reading Daddy’s Tractor House magazine…


Balancing his {new truck that he picked out at Good Samaritan} on his straw…



Picking our nose…




Getting smarter…



AND…Playing at the park!  (More on this later!)


Now that it’s midnight, I really want to watch the Bachelor!  I forgot it was recorded until now.  Not sure if I will make it though!  I am not sure I can stay up till 1:30 in the morning two days in a row! 

Stay Warm YA’LL!  (That’s for you Jamie!)

I was already laughing at the Nanny story. Langston yells for my dad or Jeff at the grocery store and I have yet to figure out why. Then I saw Hayden picking his nose and thought it looks just like a sight I see everyday. But, when I saw my name at the end, I literally laughed out loud. Thanks for the laugh during my late night feeding session. :)

I'm freezing. Wish yall were closer so the boys could play.
Stay warm. I've enjoyed two days off, and just think they should cancel the entire week of school. Might as well.
