Oh how I've missed the mall!

Most of my loyal readers know that I am an addicted online shopper! I have a package literally arriving on my doorstep everyday. It is kind of a joke between my nannies and I because everytime I get home from work, I see the unopened package by the front door and I always say, "oh yeah! "blank" came today! Did you open it and look?!" and they always say no, they wouldn't open it without me there. So I proceed to open it, show them the contents and they do a great job of pretending to be as excited about it as me :)

I think I like online shopping for two reasons. One being the only time I can get to the stores is on the weekend and I don't really get good shopping done with both the kiddos and minus the husband. Two, I do a lot of stores online that aren't available for me to drive to. And three, I just like getting packages in the mail.

Well, Saturday my mom and I headed to the mall with Malakai and Leila to do some shopping! I don't think I have been to the mall since Christmas!! We had such a wonderful day! We did lunch, shopped, rode the carousel, and found everything we had set out to find!! On top of that, the kids were WONDERFUL!! Just chilled in their double stroller, ate some cookies, Malakai played with his cars, and they were both very content people watching :) They totally get that from me!

Both kids needed some new shoes, so after long periods of time in Stride Rite and Journey Kidz we ended up with these:

I also found an Easter Dress for myself, a shirt for Josh, and some summer clothes for the kids. Overall, a very successful day :)

After the kids were in bed and Josh got home from work, we finished Easter Basket shopping for the kiddos and managed to share a cocktail together and watch some basketball while waiting for our takeout after our late night trip to Target :)

And so I don't leave this blog totally pictureless of Malakai and Leila. Here they are just hanging out out home. Malakai is OBSESSED with his Color Changer Racetrack and Leila just loves anything she can get in to!


Best thing since I last blogged: My Sugar Free Red Bull is 2/$4.00 at the gas station I frequent :)

Worst thing since I last blogged: Rain!!
