We occupied a good portion of Saturday with shopping. When driving in on Friday night, we noticed signs advertising a neighborhood yard sale in the neighborhood, so we decided to check it out. We hit the jackpot at one house: cute maternity clothes in Jenny’s size. Between that and borrowing some of Carrie’s maternity clothes, we bolstered Jenny’s wardrobe and prepared for the next few months. Then, we loaded up and headed to a shopping center that they call “Venice.” Jenny used some of her birthday money to buy cute new shoes.
After lunch, while Matt and I watched some Longhorn football, Jenny and Carrie went to the nail salon to have their feet pampered. This made me a little bit sad, because I had painted Jenny’s toenails a couple of weeks ago, and they had to remove my painstaking work before applying a new coat of polish. I know that the pedicurist did a much better job than me, seeing as she is a professional. Later Saturday evening, we played a heated game of Settlers of Catan. Well, maybe it wasn’t so heated. Sadly, I made a crucial lapse at the very end of the game: I had the cards in my hand to win on my next turn, and I foolishly traded something to Matt, without realizing that the very card I was trading him would give him the win. Although my disappointment was bitter, I still slept well.
