Lucky: It's school time again, and you know what that means? School clothes shopping. Well, not so much me anymore, but my sister Lorna wanted to make a trip to the outlet mall. I was all about that, and my mom so kindly offered to watch the kids for me so I could do it. She said "what is the point of my daughter living in the same town as me and my other daughter wanting her to go with her to the outlet mall, and she not being able to because of no one being able to watch her kids. She might as well live in Chicago.' So she so sweetly took my kids for me until Aaron got home from school so Lorna and I could shop till we dropped. They closed and had to kick us out at 9. We didn't get there until 4 though, so we aren't as lame as you think.

It was tons of fun getting to hang out with my sis though. She is such a beautiful person inside and out. I am a very fast shopper, I'm in and outta there in no time, and she was a good partner because she didn't hold me back too long. haha I'm kidding mostly because I was just along for the ride. It was her school clothes shopping and I just picked up a few things that were too cheap to pass up. ($5.99 shorts for me and such...I bragged about my abilities on my other blog.)

I discovered a new fav too. I don't know about non-outlet stores but A'Gaci is sa-weeet. I describe it as an organized Forever 21. I like that place but I get so stressed out and overwhelmed going in there. A'Gaci has the cute trendy clothes and low prices but it is on the racks with others just like it in more than one size.

A big thanks to my mom for tending the chid's and thank you to my sweet husband (or should I thank Warcraft?) for letting me go. I am sooo lucky to live here by family, and I am definitely going to miss them when we have to move. I've been spoiled.

News: It's official. I'm now in nursery, with Gunnar. I was a little surprised because I had two callings already (Activities Committee and Cub Scouts asst Den leader) but they released me from A.C. It's all good, I really don't mind. I like the age group of nursery kids and I'm actually kinda excited. I'll miss RS though.

In other news, I ran a 10k race yesterday. I improved upon my time from my last 10k (and 5k according to my stopwatch) so no complaints here. I guess it would be too selfish of me to pout about getting fourth place in my age group instead of 3rd so I could have won a medal. I missed it by 16 seconds, but that's nothing to complain about since people in the Olympics won and lost gold medals by the difference of .01 seconds. Crazy! Oh well. I'm just happy I did it.

On Thurs we went to Lily's teacher meet and greet. She is attending Scarborough Elementary that is just a few minutes from my house. It is brand new and super nice. I am so excited for Lily and I like her teacher from what I saw of her. Mrs. Meyers. Lily was a little apprehensive at first but then when she saw Gunnar running straight for the toys and books she got over it. Luckily, she got the afternoon class so I don't have to wake up at 6AM this year, I really dodged a bullet there. Not looking forward to it next time around.

This evening Aaron gave Lily her first father's blessing before school starts. It was very special and she sat still and kept her eyes closed the whole time. I guess I didn't but I couldn't help but peek at her and wonder how I got so lucky. Aaron giving her a blessing and having a cute daughter to receive it. It was very special and I think Lily could sense that. Except she kept asking me to put my hands on her head too, and offering my turn when Aaron was done. It's awesome that she is at the age where she can "get" stuff now. Just this passed couple months she sits still long enough for me to explain things during sacrament meeting and stuff. I'm blessed tp be able to teach my daughter the gospel, and I am grateful to my parents for having taught me and being born into a family that has the church.

What a positive weekend. I feel so blessed.
