On Saturday morning my mom and I left at 6:30am for the inspection. Long story short, I ended up having to take it to another place to get some work done, but thankfully the work wasn't too expensive. That's definitely a huge relief, because I always find car repairs stressful.
After we got the car dropped off, my mom and I ran to the dollar store so I could get a few things for my friend's baby shower (I'll be doing another post on that soon) and then we went to Dillards. My mom and I don't usually go shopping together because usually our whole family is together, so it was really nice. My parents bought me two dresses. I really love this coral dress, pictured right. It's pretty poufy on the bottom, so I don't think the husband is a fan, but I think it will be fun to wear to my friend's baby shower. I love the color, and think it's such a girly dress. That afternoon, we went over to my brother's and sister-in-law's house for lunch, and they made a delicious meal of salmon (seriously the best I've ever tasted) and veggie kabobs (among other things). It was great to see them! The rest of the visit was pretty low-key, as my Dad wasn't feeling well, but it was really nice to have the time together.
On my way home, I stopped by Ikea for a break, and I picked up these fun boxes, in the hopes that I might get a little organized. I thought these could be nice to store things underneath the bed and the big box I brought into work.
