After Ikea we went to the airport to pick up Mr. B's fiancee (naturally he would have preferred to pick her up himself but had to work.) Her name is Miss A. After they get married I will change her name to Mrs. B ... maybe. Or maybe she'll just stay Miss A! Why confuse things, right? I'm already confused trying to remember to write My Man instead of DH. (And now that I've done that I feel the need to give all the SILs and BILs more personalized nicknames ... more confusion!) ANYWAY we had never met her except through Facebook so I was a little bit worried about how we would recognize her but she saw us first and recognized the Boogie right away from all the pictures Mr. B has sent to her. She is very nice and we are pleased to finally meet her after hearing so much about her from Mr. B.
Today was My Man's Saturday off for this month. It was wonderful to sleep in late this morning. When the Boogie woke up we just brought her into bed with us and snuggled with her! We were going to go out to breakfast using a gift certificate we had, but I must have thrown it away because we couldn't find it anywhere. :( My poor Man. He was really looking forward to going out. (I felt very badly about it. I must have thrown it out with the electric bill we couldn't find last week. That's what happens when I get fed up with papers laying around. I end up accidentally throwing away something important.) But he cooked us a tasty breakfast at home and then we ran some errands.
At Target there is a Starbucks conveniently located right by the front door. Starbucks is not my favorite but some days, like today, I just need to have a white chocolate mocha. I started drinking it and found a hair! EEWWWWW!! I took it right back and the barista acted properly horrified and immediately made me a fresh mocha and gave me a voucher for a free drink. It was kind of gross but at least the barista looked like a clean person so it was probably a clean hair. And I get a free drink for my inconvenience ... as long as I don't get all crazy and start purging and accidentally throw away my voucher.
We had a gift card for Target so we bought this lamp for our living room. It's very nice with glass shades and everything. It has a nifty reading light on the side, too. Finally we have enough light in our living room! Thank you Mom3 and Pop3!
From Target we headed to Shop Rite which was a total zoo. I thought it was bad when I went shopping on New Year's Eve, but it was much worse today, I guess because of the Eagles game tomorrow. Thankfully all we needed was coffee creamer and clementine oranges. I bought a box of them earlier this week and we finished it off in three days, so today we went back and got two more boxes. They are very addictive and delicious. It probably wouldn't be good for us to eat so many of them all the time, but they're only available for a limited time and I figure that they're fruit and vitamin C so it's okay to binge for a week or so. :)
After we got home Mr. B and Miss A stopped by to visit for a bit. They brought a big stuffed Care Bear and some sweet Valentine's clothes for the Boogie. She wanted to put on the stripey pink hoodie right away and had to wear it for the rest of the day. Miss A and I compared notes and I am even more firmly convinced that My Man and Mr. B were twinz in another life. I think we are going out for lunch with them tomorrow afternoon and then watching the football game together. To be honest, I probably won't watch the game. Football is so confusing to me and I hate all the time-outs. They just make the game drag on and on and on ... give me baseball any day. It is sounding like the game might be projected huge onto the wall over at 52 so I may just bring the Boogie home for naps. She and I both have colds and can use some extra sleep, I think. And in case you forgot, I love naps. Naps are my favorite!
