A Trip to the Mall

Last night I went to scrapbook with some girls from my MOPS group. One of them mentioned that a new scrapbook store was opening at Opry Mills today so I absolutely had to check it out today! Our TIPS lady is out of town so we kind of hung out and did nothing this morning but called Bobby to see if he would meet us at the mall for dinner. It is much easier to check out a new store without having to wrangle with kids at the same time.

When we got there we had to pass Customer Service. This is where you can sign up for the Opry Mills Kids club, Mugsys Meadow. We have been by there a couple of times before because when you sign up you get to spin the wheel and win a prize. Well, we signed up online and have been told you don't get to spin if you signed up that way. Fair? I think not. Tonight we got a sympathetic older gentleman that let the kids spin. Munchkin landed on the space with the star and got a $10 gift card to the mall. She got to spin again for Little Man since he wanted nothing to do with it and got a voucher for a little gift at Build-A-Bear workshop. He ended up getting a little stencil thing. Munchkin decided that she wanted a build a bear with her $10 gift card plus she had about $20 left over from her lemonade stand earlier this year. So she got a $10 bear with an ice skating outfit. It's name is Abby. She is pretty excited about it and we thought it was cool she got it for $10 off!

The scrapbook store is pretty cool. Since it was the first day they had everything in stock including the new tool The Crop-a-dile. They had the new Bohemia line from My Minds Eye. I love the mathcy matchy papers and saying. It makes really easy cute pages.

After a yummy dinner at Macaroni Grill we walked back around the mall, which is long way with 2 rambunctious kiddos, and headed home. All in all a very enjoyable trip to the mall.
