Yes you read correct I braved the mall with 3 kids! I never do this unless completely necessary. It usually ends with kicking,screaming,crying & since I'm the one doing that people often stare. Sooo I try to go alone. Anyway, it had to be done. My mother in law is having Matt's brother (Mike) a surprise party this coming Saturday. He is turning 30! Well, it's a WV Mountaineers party. Everyone is to wear something WVU & get WVU gifts. He is the biggest WVU fan I know. But, if you know anything about Matt & I you'll know we are the biggest Marshall fans you'll know. With Marshall & WVU being rivals we don't allow anything Moutaineers in our home! We are going to wear something WV but only for Mike. We'd do this for noone else LOL! I had to run to Walmart about 20 minutes away to get the kids some outfits. Let me explain how our area works....You have Ky right where we live it's all UK. With a couple Marshall fans (Me & Matt lol) then you cross the bridge literally 5 minutes away it's all Marshall fans. You go down the road a little & cross another bridge you have your Buckeye fans but you go about 20/30 minutes up the road it's nothing but WVU people. Crazy I know but I guess that's what we get since we are the "Tri State Area". In just one trip to the grocery store I will go to 3 states in about 15 minutes. Oh sorry back to my story. I called this Walmart & of course they only had ONE outfit left in Shannon's size & they told me they could hold it for a couple hours. So I had to go. Right beside Walmart is the Mall so I thought I might as well get Mike his gift. Since we never get up that way & like I said before it's hard finding "other" teams not in their designated area lol! Matt was at Drill (National Guard) so it was just me & the kids. Now, I'm going to tell you something & you must be seated! Are you seated?? I hope! The kids were excellent!!! Yes you read right & I'm sure you fainted & that's ok because I thought I would too. They stayed right beside me. Shannon sat in her stroller the entire time & noone asked for anything! I did get myself a few tarts from Yankee Candle (The scent was Harvest) & oh my house smells so yummy! Since the kids were so well behaved well picked up chocolate shakes on the way home. They loved that of course. We had a happy mommy who completed her tasks. Happy kids who got rewarded with some sugar. All in all a nice mall trip. Well, all except when Shannon got tired of holding her shake & decided to dump it all over the backseat.
