Had a very, very nice weekend w/ KJ while Cosmo & Daughter #1 were at a lax tourney in Richmond. Friday I took KJ & a friend to laser tag and Johnny Rockets for dinner. Saturday, we barely moved off the couch (which was very much deserved and very much appreciated!). Sunday we met friends for lunch after church and then we hit the mall.

I was not looking forward to shopping w/ KJ at all. She's at a really weird stage, nothing fits right and she's horribly opinionated (she actually told me she wants T to take her shopping). She wanted a new outfit to wear to registration this week and said she doesn't want to shop at Justice anymore. She wants "middle school" clothes (i.e., Abercrombie, Hollister, American Eagle, etc.). Oh boy. We actually ended up making a huge dent in her back-to-school wardrobe and got some bargains, too! And, most importantly, we didn't kill each other in the process.

I don't know if Miss Priss thought she was getting her own private dressing room in the locker room or what but when I mentioned something about changing into PE clothes, she gave me the weirdest look and said, "Really? We all change in front of each other?" So, I took her to Aerie and had her properly fitted for "undergarments" (she doesn't like when I use the words "bra" or "panties"; said it's just "too weird" for her). She also got two pair of jeans at Delia's. One pair is a darker skinny jean to wear with ballet flats and the other pair is a flare leg for her cowboy boots. They had petite sizes and the length was PERFECT on her. They were also on sale buy one/get one 1/2 off plus if you actually tried on the jeans in the dressing room, they gave you a coupon for $10. She ended up getting both pairs of jeans for a total of $60 (which is about what I paid for her jeans at Justice anyway). She bought several tops at Forever 21, a shirt and tank at Hollister and gladiator sandals at DSW. We still need to find the ballet flats and I want her to get some cropped jeans or Bermudas for the first couple of weeks of school. She just got new sneakers for volleyball camp but I have no idea what condition her backpack is in. Last year she BEGGED me for a Vera Bradley messenger bag which she used for about a week. It was beautiful to look at but pretty much useless. She couldn't fit a damn thing in it.
