...for a weekend away and couple days off!
T and i are going "away" for the weekend. just the 2 of us. thank you, Grandma and Grandpa for watching the boys! we'll have a nice dinner, maybe go see a movie if there's anything worth watching at the theater, and take some time to relax tonight at the hotel. then tomorrow we have a ton of shopping to do. (Sam's Club and Wal-Mart here we come!) we like to stock up on the stuff we use a lot since the closest wal-mart is over an hour away and the closest sam's is 2 hours away. after over 10 years of living at the edge of the world, you think i'd be used to having to drive for good shopping, but the fact is i still wish we lived closer to a wal-mart or target and a mall would be nice once in a while too!
you might be wondering if the boys will dress up and go trick-or-treating since it's halloween. the answer is no. we don't do halloween. when T and i were newlyweds, we watched a special tv program with Carman about halloween and what it really is all about. so before bubba was even born, we had decided our family wouldn't "celebrate" halloween. it was difficult for me at first, because i used to really get into it with decorations and i loved dressing up in costumes. but it honestly really creeps me out now. if my kids want to dress up, there are 364 other days that they can do it on! (and even then we do only "nice" costumes...nothing creepy or scary.)
