OK so after my post a few days ago, I decided to bid on a new & PINK Combi stroller. I mean, you can always find something better if you spend more money, but mine was $170 bucks with shipping.
It came yesterday, and so did our lovely new camera!
Can you sense soleil’s excitement? (left)
Now no one will ask me if I have two boys. Come to think of it people ask us if they are boys when they see the girls wearing pink.
Anyway- we know it wont outlast a nuclear holocaust (like the Graco Quatro)- it’s temporary. If it lasts us a year, then that is still money well spent. We just needed something that didn’t weigh 12,000 pounds for our trip (BTW would love tips of what to take for my girls for the trip).
We also got a new camera (obviously these purchases was made prior to my husband’s news yesterday. Im sensing we wont be buying anything new for along time):
A new camera makes me so happy! We had one from 2004, and it is bulky and horrible. With all the pictures we take, we needed a new one
My trip is a few days away and naturally, I have not packed. I usually like to pack the night before. But considering I now have two children to pack for (add that to the husband I usually pack for as well) that’s about 75 people to pack for. Wow- the job of a mother.
Anyway, i didn’t tell you about my Wednesday night.
So we had a company party. Some of you may have guessed who the celeb performer was. I was so excited- I got all dolled up and me and my husband actually went out at night for the first time since our girls were born.We were going to paint the town red.
The party started at 9pm. He was supposed to perform at 11pm. I know this was way past my usual bedtime of whenever my head hits the pillow, but it was supposed to be worth it.
11pm comes and goes. 11:30pm comes and goes. No performer. Every 30 minutes someone would get on stage to say “he’ll be here in a few minutes”- BS.. Such a diva.
At 12:15am we called it quits and left- without seeing the performance. Apparently he came on at 12:40am! I mean, that’s fine and dandy(did I just write dandy?) for young, unmarried, or childless couples, but we were just so tired and out of it. I feel asleep in the car.
One fun thing that I did do that night (other than eating a mini cupcake… yumm) was sing a karaoke song. I love karaoke. If its in the right note, I can sing my ass off. My fave karaoke song to sing is Blaze of Glory by Bon Jovi. I’m such a show off.
