If The Crown Fits

We started our day on the move.  I still needed to get a few more school supplies for Emily so we headed out to town.  Due to the fact that my printer isn't working, I ran by my former place of employment so I could print off a coupon for Hobby Lobby (just in case I wanted to ride buy).  When we left I decided to hold off on Hob Lob for another day, so we hit Walmart wide open hunting for school supplies. 

I think I'm out of luck on the pink scissors.  There was more of a selection at this Walmart, but the type that Emily has to have doesn't come in pink, so we'll just have to make do.  Walmart may have had more scissors, but they sure didn't have much else.  We still have a few more things to get, but we're doing okay on time, so all is good. 

You can bet I was the only Mom with a camera taking pictures of their kids getting school supplies.  Who cares!  I'm going to do it while I can!  Before long, this will mortify her. 

Gracie said, "Picture me".  You bet!

She also told Emily, "Mone Sister" which means "come on sister".   She is too funny!

When we went to Walmart when Emily was a baby, we would always stop at the front door and smell the flowers.  Sometimes we would pick up every bouquet.  Today, we introduced Gracie to the tradition.  Every time we would smell them, we would say, "You gotta stop and smell the roses".  Oh, so true. 

I had told Emily that I would buy her some jewelry (specifically clip on earrings) today while we were at Walmart.  When I was little, I remember seeing that stuff everywhere.  Now, you have to be committed to spend $20 if you want it at Walmart.  That was a little more than I wanted to spend, so we stopped at Walgreens to see what they had.  They had the whole set at a steal of a deal, so I got two.  One for Emily and one for Gracie.  They played with this stuff for a long time.  We changed Emily's clothes several times, but Gracie seemed content with what she had on.  Look at these faces!!!  I'm in pure heaven!!!

Tonight we had Emily's all time favorite food, taco soup.  Some folks don't understand why I fix taco soup when its a 100 degrees outside, but I don't understand their logic.  If you cook anything, it's going to come of the stove hot, so why can't you fix soup in the summer.  The girls love it, it's pretty good for them, and the best part is that I don't have to beg Emily to eat it!  She's such a picky eater!  She may end up taking it everyday for school!  I try to explain to her that she won't be able to snack whenever she wants to, but I think she's going to have to find out for herself. 

Alright y'all, I'm headed to bed.  Sleep tight!!
