Doug and I went out on Saturday to do a bit of shopping, (ya know, tis the season). We stopped at the new Town Square Shopping Center. That place is COOL. HUGE, so cute and full of lots of fun stuff. Not all the shops are open yet, but there is a lot already. The kids park looked way fun. Definitely a place to take the kids for shopping and play. I can see going there for a big day of school shopping or something like that. It is beautiful.
We stopped in the H &M store that is new to Vegas. It looked cool but was packed and since I'm not familiar with the store or their style I was totally overwhelmed! I told Doug I don't know how to shop for myself if I'm not at Target or Old Navy. HELP!! I need serious fashion assistance!
We had a lot of fun. 5 hours to ourselves in the middle of the day. What more could I ask for. Another day out that's what!

Super Saturday went well, I was busy nonstop from 9am to 3:30 p.m. Had lots of people asking if I had extra sets. Dude, I barely found enough stuff for the ones I needed.
I feel free...dying to start some of my projects I've been wanting to do. Glad for the space that is showing itself in my spare bedroom. Last week you could barely walk in there for all the piles of project stuff lying around. Gotta get that room clean for my company coming this weekend.
Can't believe Thanksgiving is next week. How'd that happen??? Since when did it get to be the middle of November?? It doesn't help that it's still 80 degrees around here. It felt so wrong to wear boots to church yesterday, but hey it is NOVEMBER!
The Cake ** The decorations
The goodie bags ** The look on a girls face when she sees something she wants
Samantha's party was a huge success. We did a pretend sleepover and made no sew fleece pillows, which the kids couldn't believe they got to take home. We played all the classic games...the limbo, musical chairs (w/ pillows), freeze dance,and of course a pillow fight. I've never had kids enjoy these games as much as this group. They wanted to play over and over. We made our own pizzas and started a movie at the end to settle them down. Our goodie bags were breakfast for the next morning. Samantha's favorites, chocolate milk and poptarts. It was one of those parties you walked away feeling good about. (That's not always the case for me!)
Oh ya, and I think this cake is my most favorite, EVER!

Despite their mother this lot did have a lot of fun and got the costumes they wanted, except Jack!
I believe Nathan decided he was a Dementor Sith (Lord). Kristen a devil. She just wanted her dress super plain and no tail. She told me that devils don't smile, so she didn't.
Samantha is our beautiful (possibly evil) medieval princess with a hat that won't stay on because I messed it up so it only lasted for pictures. Here's Jack trying to say "I don't want your candy bribe!" "I hate this monkey suit!"
