Slice of Life 2022-Day 30
Yesterday Izzie and I had a mommy and Izzie date, a time for just the two of us to spend some time together. This one of birthday presents from earlier this month.
First stop, the nail salon for manicures and pedicures. Izzie had been wanting to get her nails done for awhile, but I told her she needed to wait until after her competition season was over. Once we arrived, we set out to choosing our colors. She chose quickly and I was grateful she could help me choose as I am always indecisive. It was so much fun watching her sit back, relax, and enjoy the pampering time.
Our next stop was Panera for some lunch. We ordered our favorite, Mac and cheese and a half grilled cheese sandwich, Izzie’s with bread, mine with chips. We added a cookie to share. While waiting for our food to be ready, I read some of our read aloud book, Pencilvania. We chatted as we ate and then I finished our chapter.
Finally, we headed to our last stop, Kohl’s, for a little clothes shopping. I love shopping with Izzie. She goes through the racks, handing me all the things she would like to try on…dresses, shorts, shirts. Her favorites are always the long dresses which can be a challenge for someone so short. Izzie tried on each piece of clothing, modeling for me as she did. Some we agreed fit well, others we disagreed about the fit. In the end, more than the promised outfit was purchased.
As our date was coming to an end, I was grateful for the time I was gifted with Izzie. I love being with her one on one and enjoying some of our favorite things!
