Our daughter, Julie, from Illinois called us Monday asking if we could help her by looking here to see if we could find boys snow boots for our grandson, Ricky!! (We live in Georgia...weather has been in the 70's and we are looking for snow boots??)
We told her that we would go out and look....so hubby was off work and our daughter, Becky was home...so off we went...We looked at Sears, Pennys, speciality shops, Marshalls, every shoe store (Payless, Shoe Carnival); Target; and finally the last store...wouldn't you know...we went to Burlington Coat Factory and found just the right size!! WOW!! That was a shopping trip!! Took us most of yesterday!! We were all thrilled to find them. You know how it is when you are looking so hard for one special item...then you forget anything else that you were looking for...None of us remembered anything else until after those boots were found.
In Illinois they are having tons of snow and Ricky really needs these boots!! We have had great weather...75 today and the next two days 78!! WOW!! We are leaving here soon and going to the land of the freezing weather and snow!! What is wrong with this picture??? Hm!! The love of family is more important than our comfort...i guess!!
Snow in Illinois yesterday!!
Mikey got his BEARS shirt!! He just loves Chicago Sports so you can please him anytime with them....
The kids had a ball too opening their gifts!! Yes, Julie, we are BRINGING gifts!! I just could not!!
After opening we had brownies with ice cream and hot fudge over it!! I had just a small one but I do not turn that down!! Ya gotta be crazy!!
Tonight I work again at Curves...my last night...that I know about anyway!! I did enjoy going in Monday night and working. Many asked if I was back but I am just filling in now..I guess...They needed help and well here I am!! I had forgotten some things..You know how you just put it out of your mind but it came back really quick!!
I just received "mama mia" from Netflix. I want to watch it today while I can; get my nails done and then off the Curves to work. It is very very foggy here today but it will go away soon..hopefully!!
Hope ya'll have a wonderful day!!
