Late Night Ramblings

My baby can crawl out of his crib.

He also has a cold. We are going through the Puff's Plus like you wouldn't believe.

The kids woke up this afternoon from their naps at 2:45. I wanted to cry. Usually I don't get a nap but today I was so tired thanks to the Olympics. I cannot stop watching. I laid down and never got to sleep because the kids were on nap strike.

So, we did the sensible thing and loaded up the bus to go window shopping (that is code for it's the end of the month so we ain't buying anything extra).

We went to Hobby Lobby and spent a good hour there. Birdhouses, nests, pastels, bunnies, the sweetest spring/Easter things you've ever seen. I bought us a box of yellow Peeps for the boys to try. It was exciting because Peeps are like a right of passage in childhood that helps usher in the new season. They were really good today. I saw an Unwrapped on Food TV about them that was interesting.

Then we headed over to Targe' but as I sat in the parking lot I thought about how hungry I was. So, again we did the sensible thing and headed over to our favorite taco place for dinner. At 4:15pm. We had the place all to ourselves. We had tacos, nachos, chicken fajitas, quesadillas and cokes. It. Was. Bliss.

We loaded up the bus again and I got a hankerin' for my infamous peanut butter Oreo shake. So, there we sat in the bus while I dug into the depths of my purse and you know what? It was like the ultimate Sonic trip. I rounded up $6.06 in change. It's always a nice feeling to pay for your shakes with pennies, nickels and quarters, eh?

Did I mention little bit crawls out of the crib? Yeah. Well, when he came out for the third time tonight with tears streaming down those rosy red cheeks I scooped him up and said "Come On!" I put the squishy down pillow on the couch and covered him up with my soft blue snowflake blanket. We're curled up by the fire watching the Olympics. What a nice night it has been.

You crack me up!!! Okay, here's how you get to the vases. As you enter Hobby Lobby, take a right when you get to the big aisle. Walk all the way to the next intersecting big aisle and turn right. There on the left is an aisle with those sweet vases. I think it was the first one on the left. There should also be a sign that says "30% off". I hope you can find one. :)

Okay, it's too early for me to give directions...turn left first at the first big aisle. Sorry.
