Girls Night

I always talk about how sad I am that my kids are growing up, but I decided that it doesn't always have to be a sad thing. I had such a fun girls night with Kylie and it was refreshing to be able to take our time shopping without worrying about a cranky baby who refuses to stay in the shopping cart and would much rather pull everything off the racks. Sure my little miniature man is fun in his own way but it's also fun having a girl old enough to do big girl stuff with. We were at Target the night before and Kylie spotted this green shirt on the clearance rack and lo and behold there was a matching one that fit me. My first thought was how cheezy it would be to wear matching shirts, then I was emberassed that I even cared what other people would think because Kylie was so excited to be twins. I wore my shirt with pride on our big night out and smiled whenever people stopped and commented on how "cute" it was that we were matching. Kylie had a couple of gift cards burning a hole in her pocket so we headed to the "$20 for a t-shirt" Justice, which was such a novelty since I rarely take her there, then over to Ross which is more my cup-a-tea and then out to Cold Stone. The tables were all full so we sat out on the curb at 10:00 at night, eating Kylie's favorite blue cotton candy ice-cream with gummy bears and talking about the latest 2nd grade gossip. We didn't do anything extravagent on our night out, but we had so much fun giggling about the old lady clothes, putting on fashion shows and having dance parties in the dressing rooms. Thanks for a fun girls night, Ky!
