Addilyn and I are really lucky to have friends that we can get together with often, even if it is just to run errands with or a coffee date. It's funny because I'll tell Chris that I'm meeting Meredith and Ellie for coffee and shopping, which sounds incredibly relaxing and enjoyable, but add in two active one year olds and it's usually quite chaotic and comical.
(a trip to costo together)
The last time we met at Starbucks our girls were sadly done being distracted and entertained after about 7 minutes, if that. Ellie was tired and having a meltdown and Addilyn spilled a whole cup of water on the ground and was happily body surfing all of the floor. Needless to say we got ourselves out of there pretty quick.
Then headed to Kohls to get a gift for someone which ended in Ellie wanting to take home all the baby dolls and Addilyn trying to climb on a pulling cart while we were checking out. Thankfully the nice cashier felt some sympathy on us and gave us the 30% of coupon when Meredith was trying to find hers. Really I think she just wanted us out faster, but either way it was nice.
Speaking of nice customer service, I ordered something on zulily and they had to cancel one of my orders due to issues with the company and then another order ended up being super late. They gave me a $30 credit because of that which means these boots were free. Definitely makes up for any issues with my orders!
