Fun Day with Friends!

Evie and I had such a fun day! We met Maura and Abby at Barnes and Noble to see Clifford the Big Red Dog. Evie loved hearing the story and thought Clifford was interesting. Maura had never been to the Puffy Muffin so we headed there for lunch. YUMMY! We had to wait awhile for our table. Evie enjoyed herself so much. She ate chicken casserole and a roll. Her favorite was jello salad. She must have remembered that from when her Nana took her to the Puffy Muffin. Abby and Evie had fun looking at each other. They checked out each others toys and had a grand time. We headed to the mall after our LONG lunch. Evie needed some pj's and I found a dress for the fall for $6! Carl thought it was a shirt for me since it's so big. I cannot believe Evie will fit in it this year. Thanks for a super fun day, Maura and Abby! Can't believe that I did not snap any pictures of the girls together.

It was a good day to be out of the house since Atillo had to sand some more and he was painting the trim with oil based paint. It was so so dusty and smelly in our house.

We came home to a freshly painted ceiling and trim. I totally underestimated how much time it would take to paint the kitchen. It's been almost two years since I painted. It's so comical that I thought that I could paint the kitchen myself and take care of Evie.

Evie and I were so overwhelmed with the fumes in the house so we left again to go to Publix. Candice called us with some exciting news! Her little boy made his arrival into the world last night at 10:00. He made his entrance several weeks early but everyone is happy and healthy. I am so happy for her and Carl. They will be such fun parents for Curtis. Evie and Curtis will be 1 year and 8 days apart.

Carl was convinced that I should not cook dinner tonight since the house is covered in dust and fumes. He did not have to work to hard to change my mind. HA! He ate my leftovers from lunch and some soup. I had doritos and a chocolate chip cookie - so healthy. We will be glad to get back in our kitchen.

Evie went right to sleep since she missed her afternoon nap. I learned today that Evie is not quite as dependent on sleeping as I thought she was. Evie had a few catnaps this afternoon and she was fine and we were able to enjoy a fun day with friends.
