On Saturday the three of us went to Rogers to find Drew a new business suit.  Men’s Warehouse was crawling with teenagers, getting sized for tuxes for prom.  Yes, they have a buy one, get one free deal, but that entails purchasing a suit priced at a minimum of $695.  That was the cheapest suit we found there.  If we needed two suits then that would be one thing6 but we did not.  One to Joseph A Bank.  It was more like a typical shopping mall store, complete with a teenage worker who was more interested in texting than in helping.  The suits were quite expensive there, also.  We found one that was reasonably priced, but I didn’t love it.  On to Dillard’s.  We had to spend a little bit more than what we had wanted, but we got Drew a super hot suit.  It fit great, was cheaper than the other places we had looked and the staff was very helpful.  They are hemming the pants to Drew’s perfect length and then they will open the pockets, etc. and press it.  He will pick it up later this week.  I am very please with what we found and must admit that a good suit is way better than a cheap suit.  For sure. 

As for Alex, she was a great sport during our shopping adventure.  I would say that we were gone from home for about 4 hours and she did pretty good.  It was nice to be out together and still be able to come home to sleep in our own beds. 

It’s cold outside.  Freezing cold.  When I woke up yesterday I was shocked to see snow on the ground and still falling.  It didn’t amount to very much, but enough to make things white for a while.  The daffodils in our yard had already bloomed and now they are looking super sad.  Too bad. 

Yesterday I made vegetable soup and cornbread, which just felt appropriate on a cold snowy day.  In fact, we might just have leftovers for dinner tonight.  Yum.
