Girl Talk


Good Morning....come on in and grab some coffee, creamer, or tea or coke...or whatever you want. Lets talk.......

I thought I would do Friday's as Girl Talk....I kinda like this. So here goes...in my life today is Walmart...yes the dreaded Wally World. I have to gt my nails done today and lunch with a girlfriend.....this always nice. I have so many girlfriends I'm so thankful for. Have I told you all that I have decided to be on the Leadership Team for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)...I'm very excited about this. This will help me find some great stay at home mom's going through the same thing I'm going through. Our meetings are going to be once a month and I'm so thrilled about this. I'm the Hospitality Leader.....and cant wait to start planning things. It's going to be great for mom's out there going through the same things and will be able to talk about it. I look so forward to doing this and cant wait to share it with you all.

This weekend will be kind of laid back. Scott has to work Saturday so I'm taking the kids shopping.....yep.....we are going to the mall on a SATURDAY!!!!! I know what am I thinking...well, this is the only way I can get Madison there to try things on so I must pull out all forces and go. It will be okay. We are staying home Saturday night and renting some movies and dining in. I thought I would make Sandra's Baked Ravioli.......it looks so good. I have a crazy busy week ahead of me. I think I have something to do everyday and night. But that is okay I know the holidays are approaching so the running will get worse. I have almost FINALIZED Christmas cards......I have almost FINALIZED menus...and I have FINALIZED Christmas lists. My December calender looks crazy.....but I love it this way. What kind of things do you have going on in the next couple of weeks?

Miller is walking everywhere and getting into everything...we have gates up everywhere.....he will be one in 4 weeks...I cant even figure out where the last 11 months has gone to. Last year at this time...I was very very pregnant and counting the days to birth...now I'm planning his first birthday party....which will be very quiet and private...

Madison is doing great.....that girl goes more than Scott and I do together....

Scott has a birthday coming up too......

And...guess what??????? My friend Chrissa just did her 100th post yesterday..so go read about her....mine is this week.......I'll have to start on it soon.

I hope you all have a great weekend.....I'll post pictures of the kids this weekend so come back and visit......

You don't know it but I always arrive here with coffee in hand. I drink plain black Folgers so yours looks more interesting.

You're busy! I don't envy you taking the kids to the mall on a Saturday but when else can you do it, right? Krissy just asked me last night if me and her and Mandy could go shopping the day after Thanksgiving, the busiest shopping day of the year. I said yes, of course, but ugh..

You know, like everyone, I occasionally find myself at Walmart but I hate, hate, hate it. That's one crowded store and they keep rearranging everything. I don't like that store but there are just some things you can get so much cheaper there. Have fun. Glad it's you and not me. :-)

Well, that sounded a little mean.

Mops is a great group! Have fun with it!

I used to be a part of MOPS. Excellent group! Have fun at the mall! I am trying to boycott Wally World and all other large conglomerates but it isn't as easy as I thought. I do try to support the local businesses and crafters. We have a craft fair coming up soon! Yeah!

Walmart!?!?!?!?!?! AAAAAHHHH!!! Run quickly in the opposite direction!! :) LOL! I do have to go there, have known it ALL week long, bu thave managed to avoid it, BUT I have to do it next week! Sad, but true. I just CANNOT stand that place, it's overcrowded, disorganized and it TAKES MY MONEY!!! :)

Have fun at the mall - we hardly ever go to the mall - it's so packed! However, I have taken advantage of my kids being in school and stopped in on a couple of occasions. I DO NOT envy you taking 2 kids this close to Christmas.

As for your MOPS adventure, I am so envious! We do not have one in my area! One had just started up when we left MD and I was thrilled, having just had Matt. We moved here when he was 4 1/2 months old only to find there was no MOPS and still isn't!!! :( Have a great time!!!!!!

Have a good weekend!

Enjoy your shopping. I am not brave enough to ever go to the mall except when I absolutely have to. Can you believe I send my hubby. My daughter goes with him and he will go with her from shop to shop and wait while she tries things on. Boy am I going to miss this next year.

Wow Miller will be 1. I can't believe how fast it goes. Hopefully he will not pull everything off your tree, but you know how that goes. Boys will be boys.

Good luck with the MOPS. Who better to be the hospitality lady but you. You have the coffee and creamer covered already. I would definitely join you if I could.

I cannot believe Christmas is coming up so fast. I have my 8 year oldd birthday on Dec. 20th so I have to plan this too. I am stressing just thinking about i.

Have a nice weekend.

Hello Jen! I'm so thankful my baby isn't walking yet...boy I'm exhausted just thinking about it. He'll be one on the 22nd! It is hard to believe how fast time flies for sure. Have a great weekend. Laura

Erin and I were at the Gap recently. I had picked up several outfits from her side of the store, including a little purse and other hair stuff. She was all about this shopping, because, well, it's all about her. I started walking to the adult side and she started whining, "When are we leaving, how much longer, I want to go." Finally, the last time she whined when are we leaving, I told her as soon as we put all of her stuff up, we were out of there. She shut up.

I have heard of MOPS. It sounds fun and you will be great in your job.

Wal-Mart. Do you find yourself partial to your walmart? I can't stand to go to any other walmart except for Benton, because at 2 am, if I need a child's suppository, I can go right to it. Seriously. Happened. Although Pad. and Southside have much better clothing selections. And I hate to admit I don't hate going to Walmart.

I am very long winded tonight. Have a good day tomorrow.

Sandra said...

You're a brave woman to face the mall on the weekend LOL

Can't wait to find out what you got, and I am a Walmart girl, I'm always there, though like Barb I get frustrated with the constant rearranging.

Have a wonderful day, and thank you for being such a great friend and so sweet with me all the time, I know I haven't been the best of blogging buddies this past week, hopefully it all changes soon :)

Big hugs Jen :)

Jen I hate Wal-Mart, wish I could call someone & order on the phone my grocerys etc!! I hate clothes buying!! I just hate leaving my house! LOL!! .....so your new job will be to have food & drink planned at a nice place? You will have to give me your job description,lol! I am glad you will have a support group...that is always good. Miller...boy...has he got a bunch of girlfriends lined up at the gates!?!! lol! I'm hear to tell ya...time goes by sooo fast!! Before long he will be gone!! HOLD HIM TIGHT!!!!!!

Jen~thanks for all of your visits and encouraging words! Like the new Girl Talk thing. I hope the mall shopping went good for you today. I would never take my 2 little wild boys alone to the mall unless it was an emergency! Even then, I doubt it.

Glad you are getting things on your list done. I've been THINKING about making out Christmas cards. *sigh*

Chappyswife said...

Oh, I forgot. Can't believe you are almost at your 100th post! I got a little behind lately. Can't wait to read yours.
