Birthday Fun, Shopping, Wind, and Waiting

Birthday and Shopping
Saturday was a day Ellen was looking forward to.....breakfast and shopping to celebrate her friend Brihana's birthday. Everyone was there except Emily and her mom because Emily was sick. They were missed!

Ellen and Sarenah enjoying their breakfast....interrupted by picture taking =)

Sarenah, Marissa, Bri, Elizabeth, Nicole

The very happy birthday girl! 
After we finished eating several servers brought her a piece of cake to-go and sang too. She loved it! 

Next it was to TJMax. So much fun cruising the store with friends. 

Take a look at some of our fun....
I really liked this rug so these ladies presented me a showing, 'Vanna White' style. It kept getting funnier....and at least one kid thought these moms were slipping off their rockers, hahaha! 

I have yet to decide to purchase it but it is very pretty, for sure. 
I tend to take forever to decide and there's a good chance it won't be there when or if I do decide I want it. Oh well. 

I'm not crazy about wind but wind and rain is what we have today. 

We have lots of trees surrounding our house.....makes me a bit nervous to see them sway. So far, so good

Small branches everywhere. 
(But it's not snow which is what we had this time a year ago.....30 inches of it!)

We are waiting for our newest grandbaby to arrive soon!

God Bless you all!

Shopping Day and a N&N Day

It's Inauguration Day and I've been busy. I missed all of it. I'm watching the news now and am getting pieces of it. I have many reservations about our new president. (That's all I'm saying. There will be not any nasty comments coming from me as I have great respect for this office no matter who is President) Didn't our new first First Lady look stunning in her blue dress, jacket and  gloves? So beautiful! 

Gina had the day off so I went to her and we went shopping. Two thrift stores, Hershey Outlets, Hobby Lobby, Red Robin for lunch and a Starbucks treat....that was our day. And it was so much fun even though it was raining. Her goal was to find a pair of black pants for work. She found a very comfortable pair plus a pair of jeans....American Eagle! (Both thrift store finds) She was pleased. 

I found two jackets and a sweater. 

The blue sweater reminds me of Spring. The middle jacket is purple and black with a zipper...Chicos! The plaid jacket is Christopher and Banks. What looks like brown on this photo is actually gray....much more suitable for me. 

That's more like it. 

I love my purchases and I spent less than $20. Perfect!

Yesterday was a Noah and Nana day. 
He played with his toys. 

He likes to touch the pretties :)

He ate lunch....decided a booster seat was not necessary. 
(Yes the Christmas tablecloth is still there.)

What else is a phone for???

We had a great day! 

I just love this boy! This evening he decided to be like Nana.....
Reading the newspaper while relaxing on the day bed!  He's too cute. 

Thankfully my back is feeling really good. But I now have a cold! I feel like I'm been blowing my brains out this week. I slept good last night, finally, a very good thing! Doesn't a day seem so much brighter after a good nights sleep and less pain? Even on a very dreary rainy day.
