Mommy/Daughter Day!!!

Today was Mommy/Daughter Day!!! First we stopped at Half-Price Bookstore so I could use my 20% off coupon that expired today.  At first Crystal said she wanted to get a book too, but then she decided not to get anything there and just wait until we went to Justice. My choice....a book titled 'Unschooling Rules'.  Truth is, I think I could have wrote this book myself.  I've already experienced much of what he wrote about. But I bought it anyway because I saw something in it I liked.  He said, "What a person learns in a classroom is how to be a person in a classroom."  Yes, that one point is the reason I bought that $5 book.  
The second stop was Justice for Girls.  I had a 40% off coupon.  We went looking for a bathing suit, but they only had the kind with the bikini bottoms and I am not going for that! LOL!  She decided she wanted jewelry. Cool.  The jewelry was Buy 2 Get 2 Free.  So she chose a pair of earrings and 2 necklaces for $10 each and a bracelet for $6.  After my discount, I only paid $12! 
The last stop was Dairy Queen for Blizzards. I had a coupon for buy one get one free. She chose Cookie Dough and I chose the flavor of the month, Chocolate Lovers!!! We got out Blizzards and ate them outside. We talked, played some kind of mannequin game she learned her week at summer camp, and we took pics. We had a great day.  I'm still waiting for the boys to call me so I can pick them up from the fight.  They called and said they had good seats. I hope to have at least one pic to post. Crystal and I are watching the Olympics right now and she is also doing "book work", her choice :)


  1. I recognize your background, you're sitting at the DQ :o)

    With one child, everyday is Mommy/Daughter day for us. My husband was just expressing to my daughter that she should make the most of all the time she has with me and never skip even a grocery store run, because there's always a learning opportunity or a chance to create a memory.

    Sounds like a good day!

  2. He is right! With four children, sometimes I try to escape on my own to go to the store, but it never works. LOL! RJ and Crystal jump in the car EVERY time! Crystal usually tags along for all the boys events so when it is just me and her, it is a really special time :)
