Rumor Has It I should've purchased my Adele cd at Target.

I'm a lover of Adele.  I'm also an idiot and didn't realize the Target version of her new album had three extra songs on it. Not knowing I could get three extra songs on a cd purchased at Target I purchased mine at Meijer's so that Monkey could get a new puzzle (because I am so tired of the five Frozen ones she has and Target didn't have any 3 year old friendly puzzles on my last run), she could ride Sandy, and I could get black bean dip for a recipe.

But this made me smile.

Cinderelly, Cinderelly!

This kid is someone else more than she is herself. Lately, she's been Cinderella.

Yesterday morning she wanted to wear the kitten heals to Grandma and Grandpas. It was 25 degrees so I told her she could take them with her (so nice that Grandma and Grandpa don't question the things she brings over), but need to wear sock and shoes to their house.

"But Princesses don't wear boots."

"Anna did."

Silence. I win!

Don't start with me, people.
Yes, I know, kids aren't supposed to wear their coats in car seats. 
It was a 2 minute trip. We don't wear it for long trips. 
The point of this picture is to show the princess, not our riding habits.

An important announcement

I'm thinking about getting booties. 

My current life status of mommy and full time worker doesn't really allow me the time to actually take a day to shop, so please send me reasonable suggestions.

The first pair I saw online that I liked were Louboutins.  Oops.

Happy Friday!

There really isn't a better way to enjoy hot chocolate

Drinking her Starbucks Kid's Hot Chocolate with "my name on the cup and a straw".
Watching Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest for the 9th time.
Her princesses watching too (has anyone seen Ana?).

Because that's how we she rolls.

Every time I want to quit Starbucks they introduce pretty cups.

Starbucks' Christmas cups. Love them.  Just red (but apparently one shade at the top and a darker one at the bottom, ehh) and lovely. No more weird designs.

We had some delish $10 wine from Trader Joe's this weekend.  Just a random bottle I sampled when I was there one day. I must take a picture of the bottle to remember what it is.

C's done with his major work projects for a while (I think) (I hope). Which is great for the kids and me, but bad for the half-watched season of Jane the Virgin.

This Indian Summer makes me want to spend every waking hour outside. Problem: every waking hour this week has been and work or dark. Hopefully we can rectify that tomorrow.

GMac is so close to walking. So very close.  He's taken two or trhee steps between things, but isn't quite there.

Meanwhile, his sister keeps answering "Why, yes, of course!" when agreeing to do something we ask. It's the cutest.

I started the new Sophia Kinsella book on Sunday (during church, while GMac was napping).  While reading it on my nook last it hit me, I am 30 years old and reading a Sophia Kinsella book while C teaches himself calculus. Now I'm torn. Am I too old to read the books I like? Please tell me I haven't outgrown those books. Please.

I don't want to read "mom books."

Ugh. I'm getting old.
