Hickory Here I Come!



The day started off a little rough when Virginia decided she wanted to wake up at 5:30 a.m. It wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't stayed up til about 1:00am the night before watching TV. Needless to say, this mommy was very grumpy. Luckily, Virginia took a nice long nap at 8:30, allowing me to catch up on some sleep myself. When she did wake up, Reiggin was kind enough to get up with her and let me nap a little longer.

By the afternoon, I was starting to get into a better mood because I knew that we were going to Hickory to go shopping. I went ahead and put Virginia's new car seat in the car, the one that has a cup holder. She was super excited to have her own cup holder to place her sippy cup in. Our first stop was Once Upon A Time. I could go broke in this place. I love this store for the wide variety of clothes and toys they have. All their items are in great shape and are low priced. We walked out with a great start of summer clothes for Virginia and some new books for her to enjoy.

For dinner, Reiggin was super nice and took me to the Chinese buffet. I have been wanting Chinese for awhile. Reiggin is not a huge fan so we don't go very often. The restaurant was very busy. When we got a table, I had to take Virginia into the bathroom to change her diaper. I just want to state that I believe it should be a law that every restaurant and major business should be required to have a changing table in their bathroom. This restaurant didn't have a changing table so I had to change Virginia on the ground.

The best thing was that Virginia chowed down on the sweet and sour chicken, sans sauce. For dessert, I had an ice cream cone which Virginia was all too happy to help me finish. She is just too cute.

After dinner, we headed to Walmart to pick up a few items. I was happy to pick up some disposable diapers because I need to wash a load of the cotton diapers. I know I am silly when disposable diapers are a treat for me. I also got some super cute sippy cups for Virginia. We made a stroll down the toy aisle which is always dangerous. Reiggin picked out one of those cute write and erase boards for Virginia. Virginia was loving her toy all the way home. She fall asleep holding onto the pencil of the toy.

My day was very busy but I enjoyed getting a chance to spend the whole day with Reiggin and Virginia. This weekend is going to be lots of fun since Reiggin is off work Saturday and Sunday.
