New Stuff and a Trip to See Santa

I did a little early birthday shopping. I went out and picked up a few cold weather essentials. I went to REI and got a neck gaiter and a new hat. Then I went to Target and picked up some new running gloves. I have to say they have a great selection of workout accessories and a fraction of the price. I am cheap so I love it. They had a TON of C9 stuff on clearance too.




I am not getting ready to rob a bank. This would have come in hand on Tuesday night driving home as my window on my van would not shut. I had to drive on the freeway with my window completely down. Brrrrrrrrrr! Power windows don't really like freezing temps.

Today we also paid a visit to Santa. I seriously don't think he will be coming to our house. Notice that Santa doesn't look too happy? Well, I think #2 was spouting his mouth off and told Santa that his shirt was ugly or something. That kid does not have a filter. If he does come, I think duct tape will be under the tree.
I think Santa was ready to boot my children off of his lap. I noticed it was a really quick visit. Hmmmmm, I wonder why?

I can never get a good picture of my kids. Someone always has to be screwing around.

I love shopping at Target for running stuff too! But not as much as I love my Marshall's scores. Those are the best!

I think the pics with Santa are cute.

You kids are so cute! I love Target and all the C9 stuff. Hope you got everything you need. REI is great too. You should stay nice and warm with the neck gaiter and hat.

LOL Ugly shirt indeed!

I thought someone was robbing me when I signed onto my dashboard and saw only one picture of a woman with a face mask on.

Target DOES have a great selection of C9 running stuff and for cheapo. I'm a cheapo too, so I love it! That and the Nike outlet.

Anyhoo, that picture of the kids is hilarious! You'll look back years from now and get a kick out of it.

I often look just like that when heading out for a run. Unfortunately, I find it impossible to breathe under that thing.

Cute pics!

Heather said...

Cute Santa pics - I don't think any visit to Santa would be complete without someone completely losing it or ending up looking like a dork in the picture. Your new gear looks warm!

tfh said...

The fooling around photos are the cutest! Your kids are adorable. But I'd definitely be intimidated if I met their mom in her neck gaiter and hat in a dark alley...;)

Target has great cold weather work-out gear. How did the bank robbery go?? You look warm which is good for getting out in the cold to run.

How freaking cute are your kids??!! LMAOOOO at #2 telling him that his shirt was ugly. Duct tape under the tree, how would you explain that one? COMEDY.

Let me know how your first cold weather run goes with your new gear.

You look like dad when he goes out to snowblow the driveway... At least none of the three are touching themselves this year...

Dang it my target never has the c9 stuff on clearance! i guess it sells too well down here. I did get a new wind breaker for bike rids yesterday for only $16. not bad.

Good job getting kids to smile with santa. I haven't had that much luck yet.

Tammy said...

I love the Santa pictures.

Those crazy pictures are the ones you will cherish the most in years to come...

AKA Alice said...

I think your son just told Santa "my mommy robs banks and stalks people on the Internet." LOL

How come C9 stuff is NEVAH on clearance out here? GAH!

Janice said...

hey, just popped by to check you out. Love the pictures of santa, I also Love Target, they are my fav....

Jess said...

I don't know, I think those "screwing around" pics are the funniest! Someday, you guys will all be looking back at them and laughing. In my Santa pics when I was a kid, I always look like I'm gonna pee my pants I'm so scared.

Marcy said...

ROFLMAO Carly!! Ahhhhhh kids and Santa, don't you just love it?

MCM Mama said...

LOL at the pictures!

Our target never has any of the cool C9 stuff you all mention. I'm going to have to hit a suburban target one of these days...

N.D. said...

You DO look ready to rob a bank!! And Santa looks possibly real!!

I am Ninja, he is Ninja, she is Ninja!

I'll give a thumbs up to Target for workout clothes as well. I love my C9 stuff, but most importantly the tights.

Why is it that Target has 500 pairs of tights for women, but only one pair of men's? I bought the pair, btw. :)

TNTcoach Ken said...

Why was your window down? Target is good for running stuff.

Chic Runner said...

That picture is too much and I am a target lover as well, they have the best running gear! : )

The shirt is ugly and your boy in the purple just made me LOL. His face is so angelic so I'm sure he is your little hellion.

RooBabs said...

I've already mentioned my adoration for all things Target and C9, but that's a good idea about REI- I haven't been there for a while (it's not exactly close).

Your bank robber picture reminds me of what the hubs said when I came home from running yesterday. I was wearing tights, a compression shirt, and a black fleece vest, with gloves and a headband (also mostly black, except the top had white sleeves). He said, "you look like" and then proceeded to sing the Mission Impossible song, duh, duh, duh, duh... Such a comedian.

And that Santa may have a butt-ugly shirt, but at least his beard is real, ha ha. Cute kids! I can't wait to have my own and hear all the jewels that come out of their mouths.
