Hide and Seek

So far today has been a pretty fun day! I got to spend the day with one of my favorite 3 year olds. We played hide and seek for a while, here was E's favorite hiding spot. E is the little girl riding the elephant on my last post.


Here is a photo of my new velvet blazer. I showed my husband tonight and he thought it was a joke and asked if it was part of my joker costume. I like it and it is super comfy. It looks nice but isn't as stiff as most jackets, it also has a slightly ruffled collar that I think you can leave up or fold down. I picked it up for about $50 from J. Crew! I bought a black one a few years back for over $100 so I thought this was a pretty good deal.


I really want to start putting up Christmas decorations but my hubby has said we have to wait till after Thanksgiving. We usually put them up Thanksgiving evening but he will be working all day so it will have to wait.

Oh I almost forgot the most annoying part of the day. We had to pick a few things up at Walmart (sorry its so much cheaper.) One of which was propane, no big deal just give them your tank and get a new one, right? Not tonight...
We pay for it and the cashier tells us if its longer than 10-15 minutes before they come out come back in. I was thinking to myself that's a really long time, it better not take that long its 8 pm and you are not busy. Well my husband and I pull up to where the tanks are and wait about 10 min. I find the number on my iPhone (shameless plug!) and wait on hold forever before they get back on and tell me it will be a minute because the garden girl is getting a propane tank. Great I say that is for us. We continue to wait and wait and wait. I call again, they say they will send her out right away. We wait some more. After half and hour I march inside to get the manager who could care less that we have been waiting. We meet him outside where he continues to dig through all the tanks out there. It seems they may not have any that are full. Ahh! He finally finds one in the first cage he had opened and we are off, 35 minutes later. Easy and convenient as the cage says right?

That is why I don't go to Walmart anymore. Their employees are never friendly. At least at Target the cashier will talk to me.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new blazer! I can't believe you got it for $50!
I hate going to Wal-Mart, but I do because it is so much cheaper!

Yes, Walmart needs to work on that problem. Some of their workers are very rude.

I love the blazer! I can think of so many ways to spruce up the color purple, which is also a fav. or mine :). The long wait no matter what you are in wal-mart for is the reason I hate going there!

Loving the jacket...I think it's cute! Wal-Mart is cheaper, but I guess sometimes that comes at a price huh?
