School shopping

We went to the mall with our BFF ever whose nickname is Betty. Lulu and Betty have not been able to get together this summer due to their busy and conflicting schedules. Finally, both are in town and free so we had a girls night with Betty's mom, at the mall. First stop was Dairy Queen for the Blizzard of the month which is a Girl Scout Thin Mint Blizzard. It was the blizzard of the month for July so last night was our last chance to get a taste. You know that Lulu is a Girl Scout cookie diva and so she couldn't miss out on the Thin Mint Blizzard. Yum! Very Yum!

The next stop was for some back-to-school shopping with Betty. Betty had a gift certificate to one of the girls' clothing stores and so we stopped in to help her make some fashion choices. Of course, Lulu had to get in on the action too.

Yes, these are JEANS that you see on Lulu (you know that Lulu hasn't worn jeans in years). Like most of us, she tried on several pairs. Finally, after the 5th pair that didn't fit, she announced, "See, this is why I hate jeans!" And, she vowed not to try on even one more pair. She put herself back together and exited the dressing room. Meanwhile, after trying on so many pairs I had narrowed down the size/length/waist that she needed. While she was putting herself back together, I was looking for a pair of jeans that would be her fit. I know that I looked through over 100 pairs of jeans for the perfect size that she needed. Finally, I found the size that I was sure would fit her. I pulled them off of the rack just as she was coming over to me - gulp. I said, "Honey, I know that you aren't going to like this but I found a pair that I am sure will fit (grin)!" She was not happy. I coaxed her into trying them on and they fit p-e-r-f-e-c-t-l-y! She was proud as a peacock and HAD to have them. So, I bought them. Looks like we'll see Lulu back in jeans again this year.

Ha - well, this is NOT Lulu's back to school uniform. It is, however, her Hermione costume for the Harry Potter day at the library. The book is a Wizardology book that she had, how perfect.. Please don't mind the sweat; we had just come in from the playground!
Have a good weekend!

Great pics! Lulu is always so quiet when I see her so it's wonderful to see a little of her fun personality if film. :) Love the jeans!!
