It was another busy weekend for us. And can you believe it's already November??

First off, Happy Birthday Pee Wee! He celebrated his 23rd on Saturday. I was nice enough to allow Magellan to go out drinking with the boys. Of course he kept me awake from about 330a on b/c he not only stunk like a freaking brewery, but also coughed up half his lung too. He's still nursing a cold that sadly, he passed along to me. And mine ALWAYS turn into sinus infections. In fact, I can feel some pretty horrendous sinus pain as I type.

Friday I hung with one of my dear friends who came up from Corning to visit me. She really helped me to relax and it took my mind off of the recent drama in my life. Actually she drove up Thursday night and we went to dinner and laughed and joked and it was awesome. I did take CJ, but he was so well behaved I couldn't have asked for a better night. Then we shared a bottle of Relax and just poured our hearts out. It felt good, I haven't done that in a long time. And what a great person to share things with b/c she is so not judgemental, but gives her honest opinion and I always appreciate that. Friday we went to the mall and just window shopped. Well, mainly I did. Jenn was a on a shoe mission and did get a pair. Me, well, I don't shop for myself really anymore...just the kids. I got Ella an adorable pea coat from Gap and some cute shirts for next winter. Yes, I am already buying for next year....if you recall she is already set for the rest of this winter, spring and summer. I just pray she doesn't hit some abnormal growth spurt, LOL.

Friday night CJ stayed at my parents, and had a great time. My mom said he was very well behaved and they even made brownies together. Saturday we went to Magellan's parents on Honeoye Lake. I love going there when everyone is there. I love being around family, and that always takes my mind off of things too. We had a yummy ham dinner, and Ella and cousin Chase got to spend some quality time together. It's always fun seeing her interact with someone her own size!

CJ had another sleepover (with Magellan's parents tho) and they took him to the Bounce House this morning while Ella and I took an impromptu trip to the outlet mall. It's about an hour away and I had to get Magellan some special lotion that I've only been able to find there. And it was an excuse to get out of the house and also visit the Carters store and the Gymboree Outlet.

We found Magellan's lotion, and I bought Ella's Thanksgiving Day outfit, and one Christmas outfit. She needs one more, LOL! But it was still a productive day b/c I found a ton of great deals at the Gymboree outlet. And it doesn't bother me in the least bit that the clothes are all last season. I actually like those older lines a lot more than most of the newer ones. Shockingly enough, Ella did fantastic for someone who can't stand to be confined. Ever since I bought her new stroller, a Peg Perego (which BTW, I highly recommend this stroller over any one!), she has been an angel in it. It has the freedom of movement harness and this keeps her from feeling so confined. Although I will admit, I should've gone to Gymboree first b/c they had an awesome sale going on and it was our last stop. By then she had had enough and was exhausted. But I still got a bunch of things for her that are too cute. I will make her model them later this week maybe and post pics!

No more family drama as of just yet. I'm hoping it just dies down and disappears altogether, but I highly doubt that. That is not how that side of the family works!

CJ has school tomorrow, we may have a play date depending on how well I feel, and then he has Gym class. My mom is hoping to get out of work on time and surprise CJ at gym class and watch him. He will be so excited. But I haven't said anything yet just in case of the off chance she gets stuck at work late. That would suck, and he would be so disappointed.

Well, I suppose that's it. I'm hoping to go to bed early tonight b/c I'm exhausted.

Oh, and Ella is a walking fiend. She walks every where now and is so good. She's only been walking for about 2 weeks and already she has mastered it. She is practically running! And she loves this recent stage she has conquered.

Night all!
