Middle School Prep.

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Saturday, Ashton and I spent the day together getting her ready for middle school.  She's been pretty nervous, but I was hoping that this time together would help get her excited.

We started the day off at Starbucks.  I mean, really, what's a date without Starbucks?  Ashton wanted a cupcake, so a cupcake she got!

On a side note, I've mentioned earlier that I'm eating on The Zone food plan.  Well, Saturday was special and I fully intended to cheat.  I ordered a grande white mocha and a bagel.

My mocha tasted horrible and my bagel was soggie.  They both ended up in the trash.  Dang you!!

After Starbucks, we headed to get Ashton's hair cut.  She had been going back and forth on whether or not she wanted to get highlights and ultimately decided to pass on them for now.  Our hair stylist cut her some long layers then spent some time with her showing her different ways she could style it.  It was so fun!

I texted this pic to Joey, to which he responded, "I need to buy more guns."

Yes.  Yes, you do.

The next stop was lunch.  Ashton chose Alamo Cafe, which seems to be her favorite mother-daughter lunch spot.  I was totally fine with that because they have the best queso and tortillas in the entire U S of A.

After lunch we headed to Old Navy and Target to pick up some last minute items.  We had a great time, and I think she's ready for Monday!

I love you baby girl!  Goodness time sure does fly...

Don't need no stinkin' highlights! Beautiful girl and great haircut! Ashton has matured into such a young lady since I last visited your blog. Middle school...thank goodness for a foundation in Christ and then we pray over them to make good choices and be surrounded by wholesome friends.

Happy new school year to you and your kids!

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
