How Hard Could It Be

J is working overnight tonight which allowed me to go shopping for Peanut Butter's Birthday. I first went to ToysRUs and I don't know if it was toy overload or what, but I had to leave, with nothing. I went to Target and didn't find what I was looking for there, but picked up some stuff we needed and headed to the Party store for some decorations. A quick stop at Old Navy and I went back to Toys. I got the pirate ship. I hemmed and hawed over that dang leapster for way longer than I should have. I think it might be a little much for her right now, maybe Christmas. Now I had to find something else, she is at that age where some stuff is too advanced and some stuff is too baby, we don't need a whole lot more in Princess land either. I looked and looked and came upon a NiHaoKaiLan mega blok set. As I was price checking it in the scanner I saw the castle that I got for her last Christmas and right underneath it was this folding doll house. I thought this would be great since the Playmobile one might be a bit much for her right now and this one she can play with without a lot of supervision. I looked through the rest of the Melissa and Doug stuff hoping they had the ice cream set, but they didn't. Then I wondered if this was the right choice. I called J and asked him and he said that is fine. I tried to find a family for her to play with it, since it only comes with the 2 figures, but I haven't found anything I like. I also picked up How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long and A Little Bear book. I enjoy reading the Little Bear series, though Peanut Butter doesn't always seem to want to listen to me read them. I also found a little time to stop in the scrapbook store and pick up some paper. I'm glad I didn't spent anymore time in there since who knows what I would have found. I got a bonus after I got home and my Stampin' Up order came in. I just need to find some time to scrapbook.

What happened to your blog? it looks funny to me. ??? I mean the change looks fine but the text doesn't fit in the borders for me. ??? Or is it just me?

Anyway, glad you got the shopping out of the way. She's so young, she'll love everything she gets.
