I Love Being a Girl

I think we said it multiple times on our two day excursion to IKEA, "I love being a girl." With big smiles on our faces. We had such fun talking and shopping and talking and baby-kissing and talking and umm...shopping. I think we plumb tuckered ourselves out. I know we tuckered the baby out!
Reason #1 to love being a girl:
IKEA, Starbucks and a good friend are the perfect ingredients for a fabulous day.
Reason #2 to love being a girl:
You can take a 5 hour car-ride and talk using ginormous hand-gestures the entire time.
(and the baby still sleeps in the back seat.)
Reason #3 to love being a girl:
Spending 4+ hours meandering (and sometimes mad-dashing) through a crowded mega-store leaves you tired, achey, hungry and oh-so-happy.
Reason #4 to love being a girl:
You can do this...
(...it's completely amazing. Isn't Mrs. M. gorgeous?)

Reason #5 to love being a girl:
Reruns of The Holiday and Bridget Jones' Diary in a dark hotel room are the perfect way to cap off a crazy shopping day.

Reason #6 to love being a girl:
You get to coo and giggle and wink at someone like this and not feel silly.


Reason #7 to love being a girl:
The joy of finding the perfect rug in the perfect nautical stripe for your baby's room.

Reason #8 to love being a girl:
A trip to Anthropologie and J. Crew are the perfect toppers of a perfect trip.

Reason #9 to love being a girl:
Baby boys love to snuggle into your neck.




Reason #10 to love being a girl:
You arrive home tired and glowy, ready to kiss your babies and your man.
You promise your girlfriend to 'do this again soon!'




Can ya tell we had fun? :)
