A Blate, Trampolines and Shopping

Monday morning again so it is time for the usual weekend recap. I had all the girls this weekend so of course, the decibel level was raised about 5 octaves. Elsa had her "pain in the ass" face on so she was a regular joy and a half all weekend.

Thursday night, I had driven down to Topeka for Parent/Teacher conferences for Paige and Elsa then went over to my ex's house to chat about the girls and go over some medical bill stuff. Some people might think that it is weird that I spent Valentine's Day with my ex-husband, but honestly it was not a big deal. I don't really care about V-Day so to me it was a non-issue. Jason had a beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered to me at the office and it was such a sweet surprise since he doesn't really care for V-Day either. So, I was rather shocked to come home and find him all bent out of shape that I had spent the evening in Topeka. He is the king of imagining the worst of all possible scenarios so he had been driving himself crazy all night. Needless to say, the rest of the evening was spent assuaging his overactive imagination.

Saturday, I got to have another blate and I met the one and only Nancy Clue! We met up with the kids at SkyZone. This was the first time either of us had been there so it was a bit overwhelming at first, but once we got started, it was a blast. I love trampolines and I did not care that the ratio of adults jumping to children was like 1 to 100. Lindsay and I jumped for 30 minutes and the girls all got to jump for an hour. They also discovered the foam pit and spent a while over there. I think they all had a blast and as everyone left all red-faced and sweaty. We stopped for lunch at Wendy's and I hope that Lindsay was amused by all the girls. They are quite entertaining if you just sit back and enjoy the chaos.

Of course, being the bad blogger I am, I did not get any pictures of the two of us together. Next time when we meet up sans kiddos, pictures will definitely be in order... as will beer.

I also got the pleasure of taking Hannah prom dress shopping this weekend. As usual, I didn't really plan very well, so the number of places we went were limited. I need to take her to the really nice mall. We hit up Macy's and Dillard's. Dillard's had a bigger selection, but they were also a lot more expensive. Hannah, like her mother, is very frugal when it comes to clothes and can't imagine spending $200 on a dress, even if it is for prom. She did find a couple that she liked, but none that she absolutely loved so we'll try again in a couple weeks. We did have some fun while shopping though, as you may have seen on IG.

That coat was so adorable, but it was a small and it was just too expensive for me. Like I said, I'm frugal when it comes to clothes (read: cheap ass). That pink dress was also a major contender, so we may go back and get it. It fit her well and was modest enough so her boobs weren't hanging out.

I did manage to get on the treadmill on Sunday and I surprised myself by running 4 miles. I just felt really good and just kept going. I was thinking that I might run 2 or 3 since I hadn't run in over a week, so 4 felt amazing.

Hope everyone else had a great weekend. Any fun shopping expeditions?
