Our First Official Mommy Daughter Day Was Outstanding

Hey Cuties,

LittleCuteLips and I had an epic Mommy Daughter Day, really it was a weekend. The boys were out of town and I had to make sure we had as much fun as they did if not more. I didn’t have a solid list of activities for us to do, but I had a few things in mind. They worked out even better than I imagined.

LittleCuteLips is a typical kid and is always asking me to buy something. I had made note of a few things she has been asking for and a deal I had made with her the previous weekend. I use those things to plan out our day.

Saturday morning the boys got up to hit the road; so we got dressed to start our day as well.  We went for a comfy and cute vibe, it was kind of cool in the morning and the high was only 72 for the day. Weeks ago I got LittleCuteLips this cute track suit from Target, and it was perfect for our Mommy Daughter day.  As you can see she was feeling it.

#NationalTeddyBearDay – LittleCuteLips adding the stuffing to her bear

Our first stop was to Build A Bear, LittleCuteLips has been asking for clothes for her two bears she had a home. When I looked up the store opening time I found out it was National Teddy Bear Day. SAY WHAT! Build A Bear had bears for $5.50 while supplies last. I hit the Mommy jack pot. Instead of just bear clothes she got a new bear and a bear carrier. She was so excited.

She shopped herself silly and was all smiles.

It was hardly 11 AM but the sun was shining just right. The breeze was refreshing and we had our sunnies on.

LittleCuteLips and Smiley

Meet Smiley, she is the newest bear to our family. She hung out with us for the rest of our Mommy Daughter Day.  We grabbed some breakfast on the go, ate it in the car and headed to Michael’s. Guarded with coupons we were ready to pick up the Halloween items LittleCuteLips wanted. She wants to be a witch for Halloween this year so we got her a witch hat and socks. All of the Halloween items were 40% off, I picked up two super cute lace headbands for me.

Shea Moisture: African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask

We tossed more bags in the trunk and we were off to our next stop. Our favorite store on earth of course TARGET!!!!  In true Target fashion, we purchased all of the things. Clothes, toys and some fun beauty products for us to try. LittleCuteLips is really into Lego these days so I got her another set to put together. Then we headed home, we had been out all day and we needed to recharge.

Bear Friends…

Soon as she hit the door she gathered up her other bears and began to dress them up and introduce them to Smiley. That kept her occupied for some time.

Once she was done, it was on to her Lego’s. She ripped them open and began putting things together. It is always so cute to see her mind at work.  We were supposed to go back out for dinner but decided to stay in.

You know we had to have a video recap.

Face Mask Time

So we tried out the new mud mask we purchased from Target. She was unsure about how it worked but was a total sport. It was a fun experience for the both of us. It left our skin feel baby soft.

Slumber Party…

It was late and we were tired. A slumber party in the living room with her bear friends was in order. We turned on the movie Trolls and fell asleep.

Mommy Daughter Day 2

Mommy Daughter Day 2 was going down and this time we were twinning. It was another “fall” like day and so denim on denim and Converse were in order. Our day started out with a movie at 11:30 AM. We had the theater to ourselves until the movie started. Then a Mommy came in with her two little’s.

Leap!

We saw the move LEAP. Have you heard of it? I hadn’t until my BFF told me about it. It was the perfect movie for us. OMG, it was so freaking good. The movie is about following your dreams no matter what. It is perfect for boys and girls and we can’t wait to buy it on DVD. LittleCuteLips loved the movie she began to cry. Right there in the theater she was hugging me and crying like a baby. OH MY GOSH! As a little lady, she has years of crying at movies but this was her first. She got it, she got all the lessons they shared in the movie. We hugged and talked about the lessons and left the theater feeling a wee bit closer.

11-year-old orphan, Félicie (Elle Fanning) has one dream - to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend Victor (Nat Wolff), an imaginative but exhausting boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own - to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions.

We dried our tears and had a full on photo shoot outside the theater. Isn’t that what everyone else would do? Yup! Shout out to my iPhone 7+ Portrait mode and mini tripod for the win.

Time to grub…

The day before was all about fun, but today we also needed to take care of business so we did some grocery shopping. Worked up a full appetite and went to Famous Dave’s for grub. This was the Mommy portion of the day, I had been dreaming of a loaded baked potato. Silly selfie anyone?

Famous Dave’s: BBQ Potato

We were stuffed, so we headed home to unload more bags. We also had to get ready for the boy’s return and school and work the next day. We had such a great time. We enjoyed one anthers company, we bonded, we laughed and we had a girly good time. I need to make sure we do these every month or two.

  22. Adaleta

    Awe what an awesome day! I love that you wen tot build a bear!

  23. Tiffany H.

    I know my mom and I hung out as a child but we didn’t officially call it mother/daughter day. I think I make sure we have them more, now that I am an adult. I enjoy Famous Dave’s but haven’t ate there in a while. I have never heard of the movie Leap but I love how your daughter can show such strong emotions as a small child. I don cry alot in person but I’m a sucker when it comes to a sad part in a movie. I think its important to have separate bonding time with each child, so glad you all were able to make a weekend out of it.
