So Friday was my regular Friday off, and I had a list a mile long of stuff to do for Audrey's party and just some regular errand running.

I dropped the kids off at school at 8:30, and I was home by 1:10pm. And these are the stores I went to:

BJ's (we really needed toilet paper)
Michaels Craft store (in search of picture frames)
Bed, Bath and Beyond (had some things to return)
Party store (last minute items for Audrey's party)
Toys-R-Us (Audrey's birthday presents)
Starbucks (at that point I had a raging headache and needed caffeine)
The mall where I hit NY&Co (had a gift card from Christmas), Children's Place (got the girls matching clothes for the birthday party because I am a complete dork), Hallmark for birthday cards, Belk to return something and find something for my Stepdad for his birthday since he was coming to my house that day.
Super Target (groceries and a bookcase for Audrey's room)
The cake lady to pick up Audrey's cake
I really know how to get things done when I have a limited amount of time. Oh, and while I was running errands, work called me twice. Fun.

I was also stressing out just because I am really good at stressing out and they were calling for snow on Saturday. In Raleigh where it never snows. And on the day of Audrey's party. Luckily, it wasn't supposed to start until the afternoon and her party was at 9:30am.

And the party was great. It was at a local kids playspace/museum type place, and everyone ran around and had fun. The cake was good, and the cupcakes were cute (I will post pictures of those later).

And it did snow, it just started much later in the afternoon. And it didn't stop Ray and I from going to the movies since my Mom and Stepdad were in town to watch the kids...

And you HAVE GOT TO GO SEE THIS MOVIE. We saw Cloverfield and OH MY GOD, I am going to have nightmares for weeks. But it was good, different, and definitely something you want to see in the theaters.

And now? I am off to bed..too much cake, too much popcorn, I am cooked.

That is a significant amount of errands in a short amount of time, I am impressed :) Love the cake, love the bookshelf!

You were so very busy! I don't get that much done in one day- much less part of the day. That cake- oh that cake- it looks so yummy!

SJ said...

Absolutey impressed at your errand running skills! And you had a party to attend too! You better post photos soon! Can't wait to see the girls dressed alike :)

Glad it all worked out, and I would have been exhausted too!

You're the Queen of getting a truckload of stuff done in a short amount of time :)

I LOVE the book case!! I've seen it many times on my Target adventures and am trying to justify buying it for Morgan. She's already got a book case, but not nearly as cute :)

Love the cake :)

Wow, you did get a lot done!

My daughter has a bookcase very similar to that one in her room!

Good Lord woman, I've not shopped that much in weeks, let alone in one day. You are da bomb!

That movie looks scary! Glad the snow held off and the party went well

Now I want a cupcake.

That is an adorable cake!
I always dressed the kids matching so I guess I'm a dork also. The girls still get occasional matched just different colors outfits.
