. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Coffee dates and customer service

Coffee dates and customer service

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!

Love the boots! And definitely know how the shopping/coffee goes with little ones in tow! :) It's always hard to decide if it's REALLY worth going if kids have to come along. (Yet, I still go the next time the opportunity presents itself!)

So adorable. I can only imagine the unexpected meltdowns and things that don't go to plan, but at least you have someone who can totally relate!

What a cute outfit! I love florals for Fall. I think having them in a darker color like that helps make them feel not so Springy. :)

When they get older, they insist on hiding in clothing racks and swinging around any pole in the store. Kids will be kids!!! Yay for good customer service...those boots definitely make up for the poor attention you got at first!

The photo of them in the cart is so cute! I imagine it's gotta be really hard going to the store with them but that's really nice about the coupon!

It’s great that you guys had a great time together. It’s nice when mothers take their sons or daughters with them to the mall, or even in running some errands. Anyway, the costumer service personnel that you’ve encountered seem to be pretty good. They show real compassion to their customers and make up for their short comings. Thank you for sharing this with us, Katie. All the best!
