We woke up at 6:50am, and I rest my alarm for 7:10am. But Captain America got up at 6:50am, and got the kids ready for school. What a SWEETHEART! I helped get them the rest of the way ready, and out the door. We ate Breakfast, got dressed, and printed out the shopping list, then went over the list to see what we had in the cupboards and what we still needed.
Here's me, ready to go. We decided to wear work out clothes so that we could go hiking in the mountains later in day :) And it was chilly, so I've got my cool scarf :)
So Jake and Jim stay home, and Captain America and I head out to the grocery store. Because Jake had school, and really, what 5 year old boy wants to go to th grocery store. hehe.
Captain America dropped me off at the front of the commissary, and he continued to the Army dry cleaners and alteration store. He had his Dress uniform to get cleaned, and a rank needed sewed on his hat.
He met up with me when I was about 1/2 way done shopping, and we joked about him trying to pick me up in the supermarket. ROFL! We finished up shopping, paid, and headed to the truck. And we didn't have time to make it to Dollar Tree to buy bread, but we did have about 20 extra minutes, so we decided to go and check out the remodeled PX.
We went to Game Stop, and the food court, and the main PX. It looked really good! They made the PX into a Mall. Freedom Crossing, they call it. Real good :)
And then we ran out of time, and hurried back home. hehe. Jake and Captain America brought in the groceries, and I got Jimmy dressed and ready to go. He was going over to Maggie's house (little Jacob is in his class) for the 20 minutes before the bus came. He was pretty excited :)
We dropped him off, and Captain America and I headed out to the West Side for our couples counseling session. But I needed a Howdy's soda before going. hehe. So we stopped for a Diet Dr Pepper, and headed out.
I love our counseling sessions. We always learn a lot of good things, and I get to sit close to Captain America on the couch for an hour. hehe :)
We headed to the Dollar tree, and found a card for Captain Americas parents, and the Bread. Diet Bread is $2.50 at least per loaf at most stores, and it's only $1.00 here. Gotta love the Dollar Tree :)
And then after the Dollar Tree, we headed out to lunch. We were gonna do El Taco Tote, but switched to Olive Garden at the last minute. I hadn't been there forever with Captain America, and we really did have fun. SO excited for Olive Garden :)
Minestrone Soup (I took a pic of my other soup, but I don't know what happened to the pictures...)
And then we headed to the Mountains to hike. We drove to McKelligon Canyon, drove to the top, and hiked to the cave. It was a shorter hike than the one I did with Kari and Laurie, but much steeper. It was fun, though. Here's a few pics from our hike.
Once we got to the cave, Captain America went up a bit further, and I stayed at the cave. Yeah, it was too high for me. I'm not crazy about heights.
We finished up the hike, and headed back home. The kids got home from school, and we made cookies for a snack. Gingersnaps. Mmm, love me some gingersnaps :)
Hunter and Braxton came over after school, and Leslie and John came to pick them up after a bit. We all sat and chatted for a bit, then they headed out :)
Captain America and I took a quick nap, but he got up about 15 minutes before me, and started dinner for the kids. I KNOW! He's awesome :)
The kids had Taco Salad, and I had my turkey burger and veggies, and Captain America had his soup. We hung for a bit, then it was almost bedtime, and Captain America and I headed out for Date night. The kids were watching a TV show, and we left Jake in charge.
Here's me, ready to go out!
These are some gloves that I decided to buy for Jake, and I thought that the warning label on them was HILARIOUS. Warning: Not a candy, toy, and not for con sum ption. Yeah, why did they separate that last word. hehe. And who eats gloves?
And across from the Jewelry Box was a FYE, and they had some cut outs of celebrities. Captain Americaand Justin Beiber. Yeah, we know he's a singer, but that's about it. Too funny, though :)
And then we headed to Target. We don't usually shop there, but since it's in the same mall as Jewelry Box, we decided to go :)
Who knew they sold these in grown up sizes. hehe. Andrea, if you're reading this, these are DEFINITELY for you :)
After Bassett center, we headed to the East side. We stopped at a Howdys first, and guess what? There was a Cold Stone in there! Who knew? hehe. OK, so maybe we knew there was one in there. ha! We got a large signature cookie dough thingy to share. OMHeavens, it was heavenly. LOVED it :) Diet Coke (gag, this Howdys didn't have Diet Dr Pepper), and Ice cream. We sat inside the store at the one table they had, ate, and then headed to the New Walmart on Montana.
The parking lot was sparse, and we both took that as a VERY good sign. In fact, we got a parking spot SUPER close to the door. Holy Cow!
But then when we got to the door, and it was locked, we figured out why we got such a good parking spot. hehe. We walked down to the other enterance, in the cold (hey, it really was cold...), and went inside. And there really wasn't that many people in there. But there were a lot of employees. We had at least 5 people ask us if they could help us with something. Not the typical El Paso Walmart - ha!
We came for Soda. And just a few other things. And we were the for like 2 hours. Because it was SO well stocked. And there weren't a lot of customers there. And it was peaceful. ROFL! But we sure had fun walking around and talking and goofing around and being with each other.
Here's Captain America wearing the Iron Man mask. And his John Deere hat. ROFL!
And at 11:35ish, we paid and were done. And it was FREEZING outside. So I broke out the new blanket that I got. King sized fuzzy greatness. I loved it :) Loved it a lot :) I snuggled with it the WHOLE way home :)
And then we were home, and I took my fuzzy blanket, and Captain Americas laptop, and we watched some Office, and I blogged. And yeah, it's 1:40am. I'm SUPER tired. I need some sleep. BUT, if I sleep in tomorrow, I'm getting up and eating breakfast first. hehe. Does that work?
