Spring Break

This family has done it's fair share to help stimulate the local economy the last couple of days. We've done a lot of shopping and some eating out as well.

Friday, KJ had a couple of friends sleep over. I was a little nervous about 3 girls (you know the saying -- 2's a crowd, 3's company) but they did very, very well and played great together. T hung out w/ Austin at his house for a while.

Saturday I took T shopping. We started off at the Kohl's on 280. T never buys anything in that store. I bought 2 pairs of capri pants for spring break. We then moved on to Target where T ended up buy 3 bikinis. She actually ended up w/ move than that because she can totally mix & match all the tops & bottoms for many different looks. After Target we went to Francesca's at the Summit and she bought a long maxi dress w/ a gift card she rec'd for Christmas. We went on to Old Navy and T bought some flip-flops to match the bathing suits she found (flip-flops were 2 pairs for $5!). While we were out shopping, Chris & KJ ran a few things up to the lacrosse store, bought KJ a new softball gloves and bought supplies to tie-dye t-shirts. We all met at our favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner (and mango margaritas!).

Last night Chris & KJ tie-dyed t-shirts. At first we thought KJ's shirt was going to just be a big black goop mess because the dye was just dripping off the shirt and not absorbing at all (we somehow missed the part of the instructions that said to wash the shirts first). KJ's shirt turned out great and she'll wear it at the beach as a cover up.

This morning KJ & I were supposed to go shopping but she said she didn't feel like it. Well, as we were trying to pack for spring break she realized she didn't have any clothes or any bathing suits that fit her. Sooooo, we ended up running to Justice @ Patton Creek where KJ bought 3 bathing suits. I also took her over to Old Navy to look for capri pants or shorts but the selection was very, very slim. She bought flip-flops to go w/ each of her bathing suits and a t-shirt.

Chris made an awesome lunch/dinner for us today (on Sunday's we eat a late breakfast and then a late lunch/early dinner). Chris is doing yard work and I'm trying to catch up on my TiVo.

One of my new favorite reality shows of the season is "Running in Heels" on the Style Network. It's kind of "Devil Wears Prada." Three girls are interns at Marie Claire magazine. Although some of their day-to-day is glamours and exciting, a lot of it is total grunt work. This is the industry T would like to be in so this has been interesting for her to watch.
