For my birthday I asked for one day to myself to go shopping, and yesterday I was able to cash in on that. My wonderful in-laws arrived from Nashville just in time to spend the whole day with Knox, and my mom watched Lizzie.
So, I took off early for the Twin Cities for a full day of shopping, shopping and more shopping:) Actually, I was able to meet my good friend Katie for lunch in Stillwater, which was really great. So, technically, it wasn't all about shopping. I went to the Mall of America and got some really great deals. Everyone is getting rid of summer stuff...the Gap already had Fall stuff in! I was able to look as long as I wanted at H & M and Nordstrom Rack (Kory's least favorite stores ever). No fussy children...no husband sitting on the bench outside...no time limit! It was great! I think maybe I need to ask for this more often:)
Thanks Mom, Kory, Kaye, and Jerry for giving me such a great birthday present:)
