Friday, I dropped Maria off at daycare around 8:30 and then went and picked up Karin at the airport shortly after 9 am. From there we went straight to the Mall of America. Arriving before the stores were open. So we hung out at Starbucks and waited for Heather to arrive and the shopping to begin!
At noon, we went for our scheduled manicures. Karin was the only one of us who ended up getting one, as the manicurists Heather and I were scheduled for weren’t there 20 minutes into Karin’s appt, and we figured it useless. We ended up hanging out with her while she had hers done, and Andy (who was doing her nails) gave us files and Aveda samples to occupy us!
After the manicures we went to Twin Cities Grill for lunch.. YUMMMMM!!!
And then on to a little more shopping, before heading back to pick Maria up.
After we’d been home for a while, Chad got home from his week in Omaha. We ordered Chinese. Maria was a complete doll, and napped well and then went down for bed really easily.
Saturday morning we were up, had breakfast, Maria went down for a nap, we showered and got ready. Maria woke up, so we headed out for some more shopping. DSW (since we didn’t have time at the mall on Friday), Kohl’s (to check out the new Vera Wang line), and then the brand new Target!
After shopping, home again for a quick bite, then Chad stayed home with Maria while Karin and I met Heather for a movie – The Jane Austin Book Club – which was very good! On my way home, I felt like I was just coming home from a relaxing vacation!
When I got home, Chad went to mow the lawn, so Maria and I went for a nice walk around the pond a couple times! Then she came home and napped. (She has a cold, so has been napping very well!)
Last night after she went to bed, Chad and I watched the latest Christopher Guest movie, For Your Consideration. Also good, but I fell asleep a few times (we didn’t start it until almost 9)All in all a great weekend, so far! Still have one day left! Hoping to watch the Packers and get Maria a new carseat… maybe some new shoes for Chad!
