Black Friday Shopping

At the outlet mall in Gulfport they have a "midnight maddness" sale starting at 12AM on Black Friday. My family went last year and I was anxious to hit up this sale. I'm always up for a bargain so I was very excited.
My sister Robin and I drove together to the outlets. The line on the interstate was as far as I could see! Thankfully since we were coming in the opposite direction we didn't have a long wait.
We were really fooled thinking "wow, this isn't that bad", then we realized we parked in Egypt. Seriously, it was in the Home Depot parking lot that was next to a swampy wet mess..THEN the parking lot for the outlets. Anyway, we began our journey.
First take note that it was pretty darn chilly. I'm not one to pull out the hoodie at 72 degrees, so for me to say it was cold meant it was actually COLD!
We started at Carters. They had a 50% off everything sale, then an additional 10%! Score! They had Melissa and Doug puzzles, so I snagged some of those up for the Noah-ster. The line took us atleast 40 minutes. Sheesh.
We then went from store to store and really didn't find anything great. Since Robin lives so close she noticed some of the sales were the same as the weekend before! What lies from the retailers! Grrr! We walked around for about an hour, saw our family and then called it a day. I really liked this pair of pj's for Noah from Gymboree for 5.99...but was it worth the 35+ minute wait? Nah. Not really.
It was definetly an experience, but I'm not sure I'll do it again. Only time will tell.

1st haircut

So, I have been putting off Noah's haircut for some time now. I love the curls, I really do. However, fighting Noah to brush his hair wasn't fun. After his bath I had to spray tons of detangler on it and then try to comb it. Needless to say Noah didn't like that. So, with all of that it was time.

We took Noah to a children's salon. He got to sit in a taxi for his haircut. The first snip the lady took, my heart sank! I was I really want to do this? But, by that time it was too late. All the curls went away and a big boy emerged! I swear he looks like he is 5 now.

He is still SO cute but in a way I miss his flowy surfer boy hair! It's just hair, it will grow back. I looked at his bday pics and even our Florida picture s(from August) and his hair wasn't CRAZY long like it was before the haircut. He just need to "clean it up" a bit. I'd love for him to have those little boy bowl haircuts, but he doesn't have the thick hair for it.


Noah loves cheerios. He may love cheerios more than myself. I sometimes give him cheerios in the car in his snack trap in the mornings. I'm constantly looking at him making sure he is ok. Well, on Friday my mom and I were in the Starbucks line. I look back and Noah is sticking a cheerio UP his nose! I jumped over the seat and had to pull it out his nose. All the while my mom screaming "don't push it up...don't push it up!". Luckily, I got the cheerio out of his nose. Phew. However, new rule: NO MORE CHEERIOS IN THE CAR!

It's the most wonderful time...of the year!

AHH! Holidays are here! I'm so excited. I'm one of the rare people that actually LIKE seeing decorations in stores around Halloween. I know, I'm sick. I just love the holidays. Call me crazy.

This week I went to Pier 1 and it looked as if I walked into Santas toy shop. Err...without the toys though. I could spend my whole paycheck in that store. I love everything, the decor, the sounds of Christmas music, I could go oh and on.

I just wish an elf would come into my house and transform it into the beautiful displays they have in there. Where is this elf I ask! I have been playing the Christmas music non stop on Demand while we are at home. I think Clint may get sick of it before Thanksgiving. Oops.

My Funny Honey

Last Saturday we celebrated my Dad's 70th birthday. At dinner, Noah kept on wanting to wear his Aunt Mo's glasses. Cute, right? Well, it's more funny than cute. The glasses are hot pink with black stripes! He kept on putting them on and I thought it was hilarious. Here are some pictures of it.

A random act of kindness

After work Clint went to the store to get some things we needed for dinner. Once he got home I was watching TV with Noah. Out the corner of my eye, I see Noah carrying some flowers and walking towards me. It was so sweet! It was completely random and I totally didn't expect it. It made my day! I don't get flowers a lot (seriously, maybe 1x a year!), so needless to say I was very happy. It was funny b/c Noah thought it was so much fun to carry the flowers around. Noah became angry when they were put in the vase and he couldn't carry them anymore, haha!

So, thanks Clint for making my day!

I'll take some pork juice

So, on Saturday we were out and about doing some errands. We decided to open up our new Entertainment Book and check out a new place for lunch. We went to Churros Cafe, and it was delish.

We both ordered the traditional cuban sandwich. I thought it was really good, but Clint is like..."it needs like a dip or something". I was kinda puzzled and thought in my head oh NOT ask the waitress for something. Well, the waitress came and asked how it was and he responded "it's good, but do you have some dip or something? Maybe like some pork juice?". I wanted to DIE! DIE! Did he just seriously ask for PORK JUICE? Seriously? She of course started laughing and said she would see what she could do. So, she comes back out with a small bowl of...pork juice, YES pork juice. I was so embarrassed.

I mean, I guess I know some sandwiches come with a "dip". Hello, I am a french dip fan. However to ASK for pork juice? I think I almost died.
