Last night I had the chance to host Bunco at my house. The excitement & noise seemed to be up a few notches from normal -- maybe I was just more aware of it because it was my house. The whole time I had to wonder what Scott was thinking and how in the world did the boys and Anna ever fall asleep with all that ruckus? Well, they did! I was able to put together some fantastic prizes for our winners -- at least in my opinion. The theme was "Shannon's Favorite Things" so that gave me an excuse to shop at some of my favorite stores -- Bath & Body Works, Pottery Barn, Old Navy, Container Store, & mysimpleexpressions.com. For our half-time snack I pulled out the chocolate fountain for dipping strawberries, bananas, & golden oreos. Yummy! Scott was a hero and even snapped some pictures of everyone playing.
And my great success story of the day is that I managed to find a swimsuit for Hawaii! I've been browsing online forever with not much success and was worried that I might never find what I was looking for. Something cute and colorful -- I made myself promise not to get a black suit. So I packed up the kids this morning & headed to the mall where Scott (the hero again) was able to meet us & take the kids off my hands while I tried things on. In the end I came home with two cute new swimsuits! Now I need to go put a big checkmark on my Hawaii checklist!
