Target's Return Policy is Ubsurd!

I love shopping at target. The store always has things I want to buy; baby clothes, baby toys, nick knacks for the house, etc...

Since I have had to return a baby monitor that was given to me as a gift I have decided I am boycotting this store until they change their policy. By the time I was finished with the "customer service agent' I was so angry I almost told her where the sun doesn't shine.

This is how it started. I walked up to the counter and explained nicely that I already have a monitor and would like to return this item for store credit. She 'nicely' explained to me that if I didn't have a receipt there was nothing she could do because it had been so long since the original purchase and my baby registry expired so there wasn't proof that it was bought from Target.

While this girl was explaining this to me all I could think about was that if I went to Walmart they would exchange it with almost no questions. That is customer service. It's not that I was asking for a full cash refund, only a store credit. This girl would not budge and the line behind me was growing longer and longer.

I was so mad by the time I left I vowed not to ever shop at Target again. Until I hear that they have changed their return policy I am not a Target consumer.

Birthday Celebration!

Jared's birthday was last Wednesday (Nov. 19) and we went out to dinner and drinks with our close friends and family. It wasn't a formal celebration, just a last minute get together with those who could make it.

Mom and Dad, Mike D., Marne & Paul, John & his date Wanda. We all met at The Elks. I know, I know nothing classy, but that's kind of our place to hang out with friends. We have a lot of memories there.

This was the first time I had truly gone out since Audrey was born. I had a few drinks and actually had a good time. Normally I stress about the nightly feedings and early morning wake ups! I guess there is something to say about good company.

Thanks for all that came. You made it a great night for both Jared and me!

Swinging at the Park

Every day on the drive home from picking up Audrey at daycare we pass by the Bloomington park. It is a nice park and I've wanted to stop there for a while to let Audrey play. Today I took the opportunity and she loved it!

I put her in the little kid swing and she thought that was the coolest thing. She grinned from ear to ear showing off her 4 teeth! There were 2 other boys swinging too and she kept looking over at them to get their attention. She is a people person just like her dad.

Audrey slid down the slide twice but didn't think that was as cool as the swing. All she wanted to do was either put bark in her mouth or swing. Needless to say we didn't stay too long because her attention span is one of a 16 month old.
