So, my plans for this past weekend changed about 400 times before I actually decided on what to do. First I was going to visit Jenna, but then I realized I was overwhelmed with homework and the drive there, going out, staying the night, and driving back probably wasn't the best use o my time. Then I almost had to puppy-sit for Frank while my mom and Jim went to the casino. Then ended up not going, so that left me with an open weekend. Until Thursday. Thursday I was listening to the radio and heard about a Cystic Fibrosis fundraiser where they auctioned off Bachelors and Bachelorettes. I convinced Matt to go but then, for reasons which shall remain nameless to protect the guilty, I did not go. THEN I was going to go to Bay City to visit people and go out with one of the girls that works in Ionia. Her bowling tournaments were in Bay City and I thought it would be a good time to head up there. But, Saturday morning, before I left for my hair appointment, Brenda called and asked me if I wanted to ride with her to visit Jenna and do some shopping. Initially I said no, but after thinking about it I realized I was crazy! Of course I wanted to shop and see Jenna (and maybe go to the casino)!! So after my hair appointment I headed over to Lyons and we set off for Farmington Hills.

We had a great time, as expected with the Lemke women. We went to Twelve Oaks mall, where I was about to walk out empty handed... until I glanced over at FYE and saw they had a ton of TV on DVD for $10 a season! I was thrilled because I saw Friends! But... lurking on the other side of the shelf was... GILMORE GIRLS! I've been wanting the series for quite some time now, so I figured this was the best time to get it. The sale ended up being $27 per series with a mail in rebate of $17 so the price is $10. So to get the actual $10 price it's going to take some work, but I figured I'd never find them for that price again. Here is my second favorite purchase of the day!
Yes, I said my second favorite purchase. My ultimate favorite purchase of the day would have to be my new red leather Coach purse. I LOVE IT! It's the perfect size for all of my stuff, with little compartments on the inside. And the straps are the perfect length to perfectly fit over my shoulder. I also picked up a purse and little coin purse for Lindsey for her birthday in August. She says she doesnt want to use them til her birthday, but I told her I couldn't guarantee they'd last in the tissue paper that long!

The lighting doesnt do it justice, but I still think it's pretty cute!

My favorite little man!

I was cleaning out my camera and I came across quite a few pictures of Carter so I figured they deserved a blog post. Seriously, how cute is he! For Christmas, I took him to Build-A-Bear so he could make a T-Rex. He was much more interested in running around and playing with the kids instead of actually building a bear...

Carter and Mommy!

Carter and I giving Rex a bath!

Typing up Rex's birth certificate!

Carter with the finished product! Rex with a yellow hard hat, just like Carter's!

I picked up this book at Borders called "I'm the Best Artist in the Ocean!" It was pretty cheesy but he seemed to like it. He read it over and over to himself and pointed out the blue and purple pages : )

What a happy face!

Reading it for about the fourth time

Carter and Ashley came over and surprised me today! Carter looked super cute in his lil' train conductor pants! Here he's looking at Justin's fish bubble thing and turned around when I snapped the pic. He kinda looks goofy, but he's still cute!

Watchin a little bit of Nemo!

Ashley and James bought me this beautiful necklace, "just because" they appreciate how much I love their baby. How nice is that (and how can I NOT love Carter!). I LOVE the necklace and can't wait to wear it! It's a beautiful diamond and sapphire pendant and it's very sparkly!!
