Hello from Springfield, MA!

I would spell out the MA part but can't quite remember the ending to it and dare not offend anyone from around here!


We left sunny, warm weather and landed in a slightly cold with lovely snow on the ground Hartford, Connecticut.  Then we hopped in the hotel van to MA...weird, huh?  Dh and I had a very lovely day today starting with sleeping in until 10:30am.  It was quite nice to not have to worry about little footsteps running around upstairs or our sweet littlest one hollering for us to come rescue him from his bed. 


We got up and then headed to the Holyoke Mall for a little grub and some shopping.  It never fails that when I've got Christmas money burning a hole in my pocket, no kids hanging on my leg, AND my fav store of all time-- H&M-- which is not available in the South...I cannot find a single thing to buy!  Why is that anyway?  When you can't buy anything (or shouldn't!) you see a bzillion things you like.  But when you are searching for something to buy, there is not a single purchase-worthy item that tickles your fancy.  Dh even headed to Sears to give me lots of shopping time at H&M and was completely shocked that I did not walk out with bags full of clothes and such.  So I shall return home tomorrow well-rested but with a slightly empty suitcase.


Then we took the bus (gotta love public transportation!) to the movie theatre down the way where we saw King Kong.  I really wanted to watch Narnia but dh reminded me to practice some self-control and wait until we can take the kids with us and all see it together.  The movie was okay and a very long 3+ hours but the company was fabulous!!!


I can't believe the day is already over.  We have a very early 6am van time tomorrow morning so I best get going...assuming the plane gets in tonight for us to take out of here tomorrow.  They are expecting quite a snowfall overnight.  I wish I could bring a snowball back for the boys-- they would think that was the absolute most coolest thing (next to making a snowball themselves)!

Sounds like fun! My dh and ds saw King Kong and loved it. I think it's a bit too tense for me. I loved Narnia!

I do the same thing...when I have money to spend and no kiddo's on the leg, I cannot find anything I like. However, I usually end up spending it on THEM!!!!

Sounds like you had a nice time... I would love to make snowballs right now. It has been very warm here all week. It was nice though, lot's of outside play time.

Happy New Year,

Are you sure it's Springfield, Massachusetts (MA) and not Springfield, MO? If it was Springfield, MO, you could say HI to my mom:)

Hey Marsha, Marsha, Marsha! You are SO VERY right about the shopping thing. It never fails that when you have some money there is nothing to buy. Hope you will get a chance to spend it when you get home. :o)

Sounds like you're having a great time!
