Mommy...it was a good day, wasn't it??

Yes, Jenna..it was a good day! I love Saturdays like this. This morning I slept in and then took my time getting ready before going to Jacob's basketball game at noon. Chris' parents, Becca, and his uncle Bob and aunt Celesta also came to Jacob's game, so it was fun to sit and visit with everyone and cheer Jacob on. (I took some photos but haven't uploaded them yet...be looking for them in the next couple days.) Then Jenna and I headed to Ft Wayne to spend her gift card at Libby Lu's. She had decided to get a make-over at Libby Lu's rather than just buy things. She chose the pop star makeover. - complete with a headset microphone..and loved every second of it! They did her makeup, nails, and hair and then she got a cute drawstring backpack and got to pick out 5 things to go in her backpack. (I took photos of her make-over too and will share them soon!) Then we went to Macy's where I tried on a billion pair of jeans and actually found a brand that wasn't too long on me (so sad when even petite jeans are too long!)....so I bought 2 pair. I also found a cute brown jacket that Jenna insisted looked good on me, so I had to get it! No trip to Ft Wayne would be complete without a trip to Target...and today we went to 2 different Target stores! YIKES! We hit the dollar spot in Target #1 and found some cute Valentine's day things, including an adorable brown/white polka dot apron with white ball fringe. I'll look so cute in my brown kitchen (again...Jenna insisted that I had to get it. I just couldn't pass it up for $2.50!). After picking up a few more things , I went to get another stool for our kitchen counter...but they were out. So...it was off to Target #2! At Target #2 we bought the stool and also found a few more goodies - like new rubbermaid type containers for leftovers (Brenda I got the salad one...I love it!), and cropped sweats for me and Jenna. Then we hit McDonald's drive thru (a happy meal for Jenna and sweet tea for me!) before driving home. When we got back to VW we stopped by Chris' parents' so Jenna could show off her makeover and then went to show Ryan, Becca, and Debby (Ryan's mom). While we were there they let Jenna play Hannah Montana game on their Wii (Brenda - Carsyn would LOVE it!). Finally it was time to come home...where I'm about to go curl up on the couch and watch a Lifetime movie. Yes Jenna, it was a good day!

PS Just so you don't think we purposely left Chris and Jacob out of our good day.....they are at Bryan tonite for a basketball game. Jenna and I just didn't feel like going to an away game. :)

Well, I doubt Chris and Jacob were sad to miss the makeover, new cropped pants, and Hannah Montana video games and a Lifetime movie...but it sounds like fun to me! =)

Send Jenna shopping with me. I need someone to say "buy it". I was shopping for jeans and shoes last week. I'm still looking this week. Ugh!
