it's been a good weekend and i've still got a full day left!
last night, miss madison thought she and i needed a mom/dot date. so, dinner and shoe shopping it was. for months i've been trying to convince her to try a new restaurant that opened this fall. finally, last night she decided she was up for it. and, at her suggestion. she loved it! that means it will be a place we can go again and again. their dishes are so good and i especially like that not every sauce is a butter and cream base.
after dinner it was on to the mall for dessert which was shoe shopping! she's got a dance next weekend and we have the dress but needed a nice heel to go with. first store didn't have her size but we were able to find the same shoe at another store in her size and with a lower price tag. score!
since we'd done two fun things, i decided we were going to tackle the grocery shopping before we headed home because it would mean i could possibly make it the entire weekend without having to make another trip to town. as we were walking down an aisle, i hear her say, "maybe i want to cook when i grow up." my ears perked right up. not sure if she was thinking as a profession or just in general but she was in the kitchen today.
it was cookie baking day. makes me smile when she does this sort of thing.
