Girls night!!

We've done a lot of elaborate activites with Melissa since she's been here and today's activity was probably the least elaborate and my favorite so far!

Shawn and the boys had a Scout pack meeting tonight so I knew it was just going to be us girls at home. I decided that occasion called for a girls night!! :)

Before Shawn and the boys had to leave we had a little time so I left everyone at home and took Melissa shopping. I just had some errands to run so it was nothing too exciting, but we went to Target and wandered around for a while and we had so much fun!

We looked at shoes and baby clothes and she helped me pick out an outfit for Clarissa and then we just wandered around and looked at cute girly things for a while. Is this what it's like to have a daughter? I can't wait until Clarissa is old enough to go shopping!

After that we went grocery shopping and that was probably the most fun I've had grocery shopping in a long time! Melissa is a great helper and she talked nonstop about food in Korea, which I always love to hear about.

Then we came home, ate dinner, got the boys off to Scouts and Melissa, Clarissa and I watched Ice Princess, which is a totally girly movie that the boys wouldn't want to watch.

It was nothing big but I seriously loved every second of it. It makes me excited for the day that Clarissa is old enough to do girl things with me. I adore my boys but sometimes it's fun to have a little girl time!

Tomorrow we're leaving for our trip and the kids are really excited. I'm nervous about travelling with four kids and keeping them entertained when we're up in the mountains pretty much in the middle if nowhere but I think we're going to have fun. It will be good to get away for a few days. Let's hope I'm still sane when we return!:) I'll keep you posted!
