niece day

June 24th, 2006 at 09:27 pm

took my youngest niece to see Xmen. It's rated PG-13 and we checked it out on line and her mom agreed she could see it. She is 11. I liked the movie and so did she, but I was a little surprised at the ending. I wasn't expecting that level of violence and I'm not sure what she thought of it. I was also upset about the previews that they showed for movies like the Omen, very disturbing images for children. We had lunch at the theater and I spent $22.00 for tickets and food.

Next we went to Claire's. This is an accessory store and both of my nieces can spend hours in there. I let her look for at least a half hour before I told her we needed to get going. She bought several small girly items.

We went to Coach House gifts after that and I got her a cool watch for her bday. Spent $10.73

Then on to Barnes and Noble where I spent $14.48 using my free GCs.

Best Buy was next were I got a CD she wanted for her Bday for $15.36 - $10.00 reward certificate I had.

On to Cold Stone for ice cream. I had a coupon to get a free kids ice cream when you buy a medium ice cream. So we did that, only I ate the kids ice cream and she had the larger size. This was perfect I'd like to do this everytime I go there. The kid's ice cream was just the right size and was only $1.50 vs the medium which is $3.96 with tax.

At Longs they had the new collapsable rubbermade containers as a BOGO and I had 2 $1 off coupons so I used those and also bought a couple other items. Total $11.58

Target was next where she bought some flip-flops for a $1 and some nail junk.

Then we went to Big Lots and I spent $8.87.

Last stop was Jason's Deli for dinner. Spent $16.20

By the time I got home it was raining so I wasn't able to walk with mom.

I was asking my niece about college or if she had any ideas what she wanted to do for a living and she really surprised me. She said she wants to go to the Air Force Academy and then be in the National Guard. Who Knew? That's a very unusual career choice for an 11 year old girl. Smile

Finished reading the library book Beach House by James Patterson. Mystery, great book with a very surprising ending.
