I did, however, make it to Target as planned, where I made my first clothing purchase for Em Dash. Check it out.
Cupcakes! And cherries! Ahhhhh! Too cute! I also picked up some little pink hangers for these and other outfits.
This was a fun little find in the $1 Spot bins. I was particularly drawn to it because it reminded me of my mom, who has a thing for elephants, especially those with their trunks up (she says elephants like that equate luck or something).
Oh, and a quick aside, but on the topic of baby clothes, check this out:
It's a little Hello Kitty layette set! The hat alone is freakin' adorable, not to mention the rest of the set! It's from Sanrio's brand new baby line. I haven't purchased it, but I'm quite tempted.
Saturday night we joined Josh, Jami, Josh's sister Leah and her husband Juston for dinner at Bar Hayama. Leah, who is due with their first baby girl in two weeks, and I stuck to the safe-for-pregnant-gals fare while others enjoyed sushi. I'm excited to head back once I return to the sushi-able zone!
After a quick trip to Beard Papa's (mmmm.....strawberry cream puffs...), we headed over to a nearby theater to see Pixar's WALL-E. Brent and I have been super excited about this film since the first teaser trailer. Robots! In space! And in love! While we agreed that it was a tad on the long side, the movie was quite good. I want my own WALL-E robot! He was so cute! The movie also had a great message, especially given the increased importance of living greener these days.
Sunday Brent and I, along with my in-laws, met up with Leah and Juston at Leah's parents house for an infant CPR class. Along with infant CPR, we learned proper techniques for CPR on children and adults. I'm pleased to have a little more peace of mind, and I'm happy my in-laws now have the tools if God forbid anything happens to Em Dash under their care.
Brent and I spent Sunday afternoon going back and forth with a nearby car dealer for the car I'm getting. We're supposed to find out tomorrow if the salesman's management team is willing to match the price we found online. I imagine he crapped his pants a little when we sent him a link to a forum where folks across the country compared their out-the-door prices for the exact car we want. "Crap! Educated consumers!" His managers wouldn't agree to our bottom line, but tomorrow is the last day of the month and I'm sure they have some sort of quota to meet, not to mention that they are likely selling a lot less cars given the high gas prices. We'll see what he comes back with.
