|Great Wall of Chocolate at PF Chang's..mmm...looks like the momma couldn't wait for some either!|
|She added candles..and wanted more than 12! : ) More power to her..there will be a day she might subtract candles!|
Even though she's big as me, she still loves dolls. Especially American Girl dolls. She now considers herself a closet doll lover. (who makes my kid feel this way? I'm gonna get you!) She says none of her friends still play with them. *sad face* ..Anyway, she didn't want a party (remember last year's ice skating party or 2012's fun American Girl party? Ahh..), she just wanted a trip to the STORE and to get Isabelle, the GOTY (her word for Girl Of The Year), since she'll be gone this winter.
|They unwrapped Isabelle and handed her to Mary Claire, and we just sat and played for a while!|
|She says she takes the best selfies, and she's right! How did she learn this?|
So, we went to Kansas City (the nearest store) for a girl's trip! We stopped by Joplin, and picked up our friends Angie and Andalynn to head north. We had lunch at Sandstone Gardens (my fave!!), and then only 2.5 hours at the AG Store. I think we mommas like it as much as the girls! We got a few extras for their Christmas and upcoming holidays (can you say no shipping?) while they watched the magic at the hair salon. Late dinner and hotel hunting (after I discovered our room was *smoking*! and I didn't realize there was still such a thing! My fault, blech.) Then brunch at Cheesecake Factory, a tiny bit of shopping and back on the road home.
|She's so grown up!|
|but I still love her the same!!|
|again with her fancy selfie shots! Thank goodness for those late-in-life braces! haha!|
|after their game (against each other!)..and then we went for shaved ice at Shave the Planet!|
|soo..will my house look this sweet? I hope someone equally cute opens the door that weekend! : )|
Wrapping my head around this. I sooo much more enjoy having the bunco girls over, they are super sweet, and wouldn't think of noticing my crumbs, footprints, and laundry! Love those girls!!
