Mom's Antidote

When we woke up this morning, I peeled myself out of bed to take an inventory of the family. With all of the nast that I won't even bother to mention ONE MORE TIME, it looked like everyone was actually (dare I say?) better. I was spared from what could have been the flu and felt mostly decent.

After the kids got their naps, we loaded up and headed out for a family date. No real intentions, just some shopping and killing some time being out of the house. Just in case you know me, I can shop pretty easily, just about anywhere. We found some goods at just about every store we went to and even began to do some research shopping for 2 new car seats which we'll be moving Elaina into very soon. Lincoln is outgrowing his infant carrier at the speed of light and will have to have a new (rear-facing) seat soon enough. Our thought is to buy two new seats for Elaina with enough growing room to make them her last and Lincoln can move into her current car seats. Car seat shopping is hard. If anyone has any recommendations, I'd love to hear from you.

One of the main goals of our shopping trip tonight was to find a pair of these (in chocolate). I know, I know. Aren't they kinda ugly? Well, not terribly ugly, but so not-cute. I have found myself making no sacrifices for fashion as a mom of two and have jumped on board the ugly-footwear-train. Crocs, I big-squishy-ugly-color-love you. Does anyone else feel the same way? I know I'm not the only one. You see them everywhere. Guys, girls, kids. Everyone, including little, old me have found true love in Crocs. Back when I was a Crocs virgin, I half- heartedly ordered these (in chocolate), waiting to see why everyone loves them. Mmm, my love for them was instant. I wear them every single night (with socks) (I'm a dork) when I come home from work and every single night, I lust over the furry lined ones to keep my feet warm. And since I'm too cheap to pay almost $10 to ship them from the Crocs website, I have been scouring the web and retail stores to find them in stock. Apparently, every other big-foot size 9 woman wants these for their very own too. They have been sold out most everywhere. So, last night after an unsuccessful mall search, and over a dozen sold out websites, I found them! I really found them! Only $4 to ship them and their on their way over to make out with my tootsies! Really, I have never been so pathetic over shoes. I'll be sure to let you know when my mail-order affair arrives. Can you tell I'm just a little excited. Sure beats the heck outta the flu!
