Thoughts for Thursday

Well Hello!  Tomorrow is Friday and the weekend is ohh soo close!! It's been a busy week here, and I am very much ready for the weekend to get here for sure! 
I'm linking up with Annie and Natalie today for Thoughts for Thursday =)





Did you know the other day was National Grilled Cheese day?!?  It was!!  So of course for dinner that night we had grilled cheese and tomato soup.  And can I just tell you just how picky of an eater Alyx is?!?  It drives me insane.  Emma will eat anything you put in front of her, but not Alyx.  She has a very very small list of food she will actually eat.  And of course grilled cheese is not one of those food items...however....I made her one and I made it in the shape of Mickey Mouse.  She ate the ENTIRE thing guys!!!  I could not believe it!  When she picked it up off her plate I kept thinking to myself she would throw it down any second, but nope!  She ate it all up!  So maybe that's the key, making her food look like Mickey! HA!




It was such an easy dinner, and they both loved it =)  

It's not very often that Emma and I get one on one time.  The other day we got just that!  Emma loved every second of it.  We went to the mall, and I have to say I wanted to cry when she begged me to take her into a store to buy a sweatshirt.


Hollister.  Ugh.  When did my little girl go from Baby Gap and Gymboree to Hollister?!?!  Thankfully all she wanted was a hooded sweatshirt, but I can tell you I would be fine to never step foot in that store again.  haha
We ended our trip to the mall with an ice cream cone from DQ.

It's fun to have alone time with Emma.  We don't get too very often, and we had a lot of fun =)

Hope you all have a great Thursday!  Also linking up today with Michelle =)

And linking up with Amanda today =)

  3. Pretty bummed that I missed grilled cheese day! and ugh, Hollister. I never liked that store, even as a kid. Why is it so dark and why does it smell so bad?

    1. I sooo agree with you!! It's dark in there, and the music is unbelievably loud, but she really wanted a hoodie, so I agreed. I'm hoping this hoodie will last her a very long time because i'm not going back anytime soon! ha! Have a great day!

  5. I remember having one-on-one dates with each of my daughters. They always looked forward to it and still talk about it today. As adults, I still get together with each of them alone. Hopefully you will be able to do it more often with each.

  6. There's nothing better than grilled cheese & tomato soup!
    I took my daughter to Hollister a few months ago...apparently I "went through the window" which looks just like a door, but skinnier! Then I kept holding things up to the light trying to figure out if it was black or navy! I'm too old for that store!!
