#1 Daughters

Yesterday Hannah and I were at home and we were hungry and the kitchen had no food in it. So we drove to the bank then went to breakfast. Hannah has been complaining that she hasn't bought a single christmas present for anyone, therefore I should drive her to Kmart. We attempted to navigate our way to Kmart and got lost on the highway, I was pretty sure we were headed for chicago or something. But I exited and made some crazy turning decisions and magically we ended up at the mall! Woohoo, yea we got lucky. But but went to target instead and She was going to get me a pretty seat cover for my car, it was only like $20. Then we continued browsing to find what my mom or dad would like. We first stopped at a dartboard and we were like "yea we should buy that for dad!" but then we kept walking and we came upon a Ping Pong table that was on sale for $110. We stood there for almost 20 minutes proclaiming to each other why we should buy it because our dad loves ping pong and it was actually his birthday that day too. So we pull out every dollar and gift card we had to see if it added up. It was hilarious because after all the money was accounted for we ended up being 2 freaking dollars short!

But I quickly drove home and got my last gift card for target and came back. It was an amazing deal because all the gift cards we had added up to a wopping $71 dollars which knocked the price down to only $45 that we had to pay out of our own money! which is a crazy deal for a regulation ping pong table. The only car we had at the time was my little blue two seater cabrio. BUT, it is convertible so we took the top down and the guys that loaded it into the car for us laughed because it was about 35 degrees outside and we were going to drive with the top open. haha. On the way to the christmas party at the golf course we gave many other drivers a good laugh I like to believe. Well we got there and brought our dad outside to show him and he freaked!  He loved it and was amazed that we bought him such an extravagant gift. We bascially have nowhere to put it expept in the garage and since it is the dead of winter we won't get to play it much haha.But when spring and summer come it will be a blast. Hannah and I definately get the Best Daughters award. It was the most spontaneous thing we've done in a while. Instead of a lame card we dropped the big bucks for a ping pong table. we rule ;)
