Jillian's First Trip to Target
I made the executive decision to take Jill out to Target today. The weather was still quite chilly, a balmy 27 degrees, but the snow has at least stopped and Mommy was itching to get out of the house!!! I had not been out all week and needed a change of scenery. So what better place to go to than Mommy's happy place? Jill did great, our first Target trip was a major success!!! I gave Jill her noon time feeding and we ran out the door. She slept the whole way there and also managed to sleep through me trying to figure out how to properly fit the car seat into the top section of the shopping cart. I almost decided just to put her in the large basket section but decided to keep her on top so I could stare right at her face. She mostly slept the whole time we were there except when I stopped in the baby clothing section to pick her out a few cute outfits. Her eyes sprung right open when the cart stopped moving and she just stared at me with a curious look on her face. She eventually went back to sleep without a peep. She didn't cry once, she was so good! One issue I did encounter while I was there is that I had to use the bathroom SO bad!!!! It was so bad that I considered taking her into the bathroom with me but decided to be miserable and just hold it. Note to self: Make sure you use the bathroom before you leave the house with the baby!!!
I also decided to venture out and try the new Chick-Fil-A that just opened next to our Target. So many of my favorite bloggers seem to swear by Chick-Fil-A and Sonic. I have honestly not eaten at either place so I was up for trying something new! The Chick-Fil-A just opened and there is only one Sonic in the Cleveland area which just recently opened a few months ago. Unfortunately, the Sonic is also located on the complete opposite side of Cleveland so I will have to wait and hope they open one closer to us. Per the recommendation of Jenna at Jenna's Journey, I ordered the #5 with the Chick-Fil-A special sauce. I was so excited to see that they served my favorite drink, Diet Dr. Pepper, so that was a huge bonus for me. This may be the start of a new tradition for Jill and I so thank you Jenna!!!
A typical Cleveland Day in February:
Jill still tuckered out from the car ride:
Mommy, where are we?

Two model homes going up in our neighborhood - when did they start building these???
