Back in California

We made it back to California and I have been exhausted ever since! Our plane got delayed about 2 hours while we were in Dallas, so that put us in Vegas at about 8:30. We all decided we were starving so we headed down to the strip to eat at one of our favorite places, Margaritaville.

The food is good, but it is the atmosphere that I really love. This is the first restaurant Robert and I ate at on our 1st trip to Vegas. Many memories. We finally got home at about 1:30am!

While back in Arkansas, I started looking for stuff for Thompson's big boy room. We were at Target one night and I saw this collection. It is so cute. So he is now fixed up with a complete bedding set, valances, area rug, lamp, wall stickers, growth chart, and night light. I don't think there is anything missing... I plan on getting some shelves from Hobby Lobby and painting them navy blue to match. So that should be it. Lol.

I do have to tell you about the deal of the CENTURY!!! Before Mom was to drop us off at the airport, Linda, Ansley, Thompson, Mom and I all went to Utica Square to do a little shopping and eat lunch at Queenies. I always love going to Pottery Barn Kids, but can rarely afford to do much shopping. The week before we got all of Thompson and Brycen's bathroom stuff to do the Dr. Seuss theme. Well this time, I was going hoping to find some more good deals. And boy, did I ever! Let me tell you about it....

The week before when we were there I saw this adorable bedroom set that was a floor model. They had it on sale for 30% off. I thought that was a great deal! Well I tried and tried to get them to throw in the trundle bed with the bed and they would have a deal. Well, I guess at PBK, they don't make deals. So I left, still talking about the bed that I wanted for Thompson's room. WELL... I went back on Monday and overheard them telling a woman that the bedroom set was now marked 50% OFF! I couldn't believe it! If you know Pottery Barn, you know that their stuff is extremely high quality and extremely high priced. So I was thrilled to know that I now could afford to buy this bedroom set for Thompson. So after mom dropped us off at the airport, she went and loaded it up to take home to store for us. I am still so happy about that purchase. So now, little man has new bedroom furniture and everything to accessorize it with! Here is a picture of what we got:
