Come Ride the Roller Coaster!!!

My niece Molly had a friend give her three FREE tickets to tonight's Michael Buble concert.

HAPPINESS!!!

Molly could not find one single friend to go with her, as they all had to study for finals.

SADNESS....

She decided to invite her favorite sister, and the aunt her sister is currently staying with.

HAPPINESS!!!

Sarah realized she did not pack anything but sloppy college clothes. She had nothing to wear.

SADNESS...

We decided that shopping was definitely in order. AND we had a coupon for Old Navy, and we each had gift cards to Victoria's Secret so we could totally surprise our husbands with "gifts" for them as well.

HAPPINESS!!!

Molly called while we were in the changing room at Old Navy. You know I could not let Sarah try on clothes alone! That is no fun. Her friend who gave her the tickets backed out on the offer and decided to give them to a family member instead.

SADNESS...

Molly was so depressed she didn't even have the energy to get herself out of bed and get dressed up with no place to go...

MORE SADNESS...

I decided that we must get all dolled up and go out to eat. Just the three of us. Studmuffin will have to fend for himself and the girls.

HAPPINESS!!!

We found Sarah the cutest out fit Ev-UH and she is totally wearing it for our night on the town.

MORE HAPPINESS!!!

She got a sweater and Old Navy had a sale of buy one get one sweater free. I got a gorgeous royal blue argyle sweater. And, since we split the cost of the sweaters it only cost $12.50!

MORE HAPPINESS!!!

We came home with our purchases, stashed the few gifts we decided to grab in our dash to the mall, and I ran to pick up the girls from school....

I had a revelation.

Today is Wednesday.

Wednesday means choir practice. The Christmas program is December 18th...

I am trying to convince myself that I don't need to go as I literally dang near have the entire music memorized and we get to use it, but I realize that people who know their part are helpful to those who struggle.

I should probably go to practice.

SADNESS...

I picked the girls up. Bookworm informed me that the teacher made her take a test for the spelling bee, and she qualified. I love this teacher for doing this. Bookworm is crazy smart, and she has refused to do the spelling bee every year...

HAPPINESS!!!

And, now I will stop this emotional roller coaster and go fold some laundry.

SADNESS...

So I guess you are going to go to choir, not Michael Buble and miss out on eating with two awesome chicks...Way to go Bookworm!

I think she is happy because she had a good day in the end, even if she had to fold clothes. She loves singing so going to choir is not such a bad deal. It sounds like you girls had fun. love and kisses. Happy Birthday.
