Today was the day that we finally got to take Emily to Build A Bear. We've been keeping a chart for her and if she kept her pants dry for 2 weeks straight then we told we would take her to Build A Bear. She's been eyeing Maria's "Princess" for awhile now, so we thought that would be a good incentive, and it really was! We picked up Todd from work and drove to The Gateway. Emily chose a bear just like Maria's and named her "Honey". Todd and I got to put a recorded message from both of us inside the bear so when Emily squeezes her hand she'll hear us tell her that we love her. They really go all out there and treat the kids very well. It was a fun experience. It's the first time I've ever been there and actually seen how they build the bear, since Gwen was the one that took Maria for her birthday.
Then we went to lunch at Appleby's. On the way home we stopped by Gwen's to use her bathroom (Emily didn't want to have an accident on the way home - what a big girl!) We checked out her tile and grout since we're going to paint it for her. I found this amazing product called Aqua Mix grout colorant that worked wonders on my bathroom tile. It was looking totally dirty and no matter what I cleaned it with it was still discolored and gross (and it's not even a year old - AND I sealed it after it we put it in). I did a search online and found this product and decided to give it a try. It colors and seals your grout for up to 15 years. I did it last month and it still looks so amazing. It looks like it's brand new and doesn't discolor every time it gets wet. I am LOVING it!!
I'm also really excited about my Young Women's calling. It is SO much more work than Primary ever was, but it's amazing what the program is like now. They didn't have this when I was in "mutual". I guess they totally redid the program in 1985 (just after I graduated) and then made another change in 1991 (or was that 2001?). I love the personal progress program that they do now and I've decided that I'm going to start doing it and setting goals.
