My husband had to work on Sunday for most of the day, so my Princess and I took advantage of that time and had a Girl’s Day.
We started our day with nails!
Thanks to Grandma, my Princess had $5 to spend for Valentine’s Day. She bought a set of Strawberry Shortcake nail polish and lip gloss. So I painted each toe a different color. Having fun colored nails was so exciting for my Princess. She is getting to that age, where she is really getting into “girly” things. (Unfortunately, the pool later that evening took off all the nail polish!)
Next on our list of fun was a movie! We got to go out on a “date” and watch The Secret World of Arriety. The movie is based on the book, “The Borrowers.” Now we want to head to the library and check out that book. We bought popcorn, soda, and candy and had an amazing time. We had never done this before together and it was quite the treat.
After the movie ended, we decided a girl’s day could not be complete without shopping. So off to Old Navy we went. At first we looked at baby boy clothing. But, hey, it was GIRL’S DAY, so we quit looking at that and went straight to my Princess’ section. We picked out a dress and two pair of jeans and went to the changing room. Do you know, we had never been in a changing room together to try clothes on for her? We’d been in there for me, but I had been just buying clothes for my Princess. No trying them on. She loved it. She danced and pranced in front of the mirror and we decided on one pair of jeans and the dress.
We ended our Girl’s Day at her favorite place to eat. Subway. Where she gets the same thing each time:
Veggie Delight on flat bread with shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, olives, pickles and mayo.
When we left Subway we ran into those little girls who sell amazing cookies this time of year.
We couldn’t pass it up. 2 boxes of cookies and an amazing day!
Do you ever do Girl’s Day with your daughter? I’d love to hear what you do. Give me more ideas.
