Spring Break Day 2

Weather: 55 degrees and sunny!
Fun factor: I took a MOMMY day! Kids went to the sitter's house as they close daycare during spring break. This is a win-win for everyone. Mommy gets some much needed alone time. Kids get to play in a new place with new toys.

Highlights: First stop-Starbucks. BTW, the new dark cherry mocha? To.die.for. Please try it. You can thank me later.

After Starbucks, I headed to Target. Hello 75% off clearance! I got great deals on rulers and highlighters for school. I got some super cheap stationary, gift bags, and tissue paper. And they had some plain long-sleeve shirts on clearance for the Little Miss!

After Target I made my rounds to Dress Barn and Kohl's. No luck there, but it was fun to look around without anyone whining or hiding in the racks of clothes. Not that MY children ever do that. MY children are always right next to me, patiently and quietly waiting for me to shop at my leisure. *eyeroll*

Next stop, Flower Factory. They were remodeling and things were kind of a mess. Lots of yellow caution tape and empty racks. I did get a couple more book baskets for school and a few Easter basket goodies.

Lunch: Panera! Cream of chicken with wild rice soup, 1/2 turkey and artichoke sandwich.

Evening: I managed to finish The Help while the kids had swim lessons. Awesome book, BTW. I highly recommend it! After lessons, the kids had dinner. Once daddy got home, we played a card game called Higher or Lower that Cole taught us! It was really neat to have him explain this school game to us...and it was really fun!

Then the kids went to bed (while it was still light out, I might add. I hate this time change!) Hubby and I had a homemade pasta dish with linguini, asparagus, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, garlic, cheese, cream, and butter. It's very lo-cal!

Then we suffered through American Idol. What is UP with this season? No one is really any good...they're all so boring and blah. I am thinking this could be the last season for the show if it doesn't improve.

Wednesday's plan? Stay home and let the kids play outside while I get some work done around the house. Wish me luck!

Pin It!

That sounds like a most Lovely and Well Deserved "alone" time for you. Yummers on the linguini dish, that sounds so good.
Love the picture of your son in the pool, super cute.

After day 1, I was hoping you would take some time for YOU! did. Moms need that! Teachers need that!!

I'm agreeing with you on AI. Fan of the show for years but not loving this season too much either. However, I'm thinking that Siobhan is kind of cool. She's seems so innocent then belts out those extreme high notes that shock ya. She's different and quirky that I watch just to see what she will do next. Glad you enjoyed some time to yourself!
