Business as Usual

Daddy left early this morning to go on a short trip up to Boston. He has a few meetings he has to go to. He will be back home with us tomorrow night. While he's there he managed to fit in a trip to a Cupcake place for me. Lulu's also just happened to be across the street from another bakery he wanted to go to. The last time Joe and I were in Boston was in 2003. I was pregnant with Jacob and we found a really good place to get really good Italian cookies. He went across the street to Mike's, I believe that's what it's called and picked us up some cookies. I can't wait for him to get home. Not just cause he's bringing us goodies, but because we miss him. He did manage to send me this picture of inside Lulu's Bakery from earlier today. It was taken with his cell phone camera, that's why it's a little fuzzy.

While Daddy was in meetings today, Nana and I and the kids headed to the Hagerstown Outlet Mall. I was in need of some good deals for some fall clothes for the kids. We also needed to find some shoes for the kids. We didn't do too bad, I found two pairs of shoes for Jenna, one at the Stride Right Outlet and one at Children's Place. I found one pair for Jacob also at the Stride Right Outlet, they all turned out to be reasonably good prices. We made out the best by far at The Children's Place Outlet. I got Jacob three shirts and Jenna three shirts. Most of which were 50% off the already reduced price. My best deal though was the jeans. They had girls jeans on sale for $2.99. I bought Jenna five pairs of jeans, off those shelves. Three pairs for the coming months and two pairs in 3T for hopefully next year. Did I also mention that I had a coupon for 15% off my entire purchase. The $2.99 jeans actually ended up being $2.55 a pair before tax. I don't know about you, but I have never purchased jeans for that cheap. Needless to say I was very happy with the purchases that I made today at CP. Those of you who have little ones should definitely go check it out, it's worth the drive. The Gap Kids Outlet also had a good deal of stuff on sale, no $2.99 jeans but also some good stuff. I also managed to find myself two new shirts for work for when it gets a little cooler. We didn't get to look everywhere we wanted to, cause I had to get home to go to work, but we still did really well for the amount of time we spent there, at the mall.
