When the going gets tough...

The tough go shopping. And that's what I did today...all day. A little retail therapy will cure what ails ya, I'm here to tell ya.

It started at Coldwater Creek, it was a big Fall sale, I had to go in a look, didn't I? And look I did. I walked out of there with 2 sweaters, 2 shells, 1 blouse, and a necklace. Then I wandered down to Chicos Holy cow!!! It was another Fall sale. 2 more blouses, 2 pairs of pants, 1 pair of earrings and another necklace. At JC Penney they were calling it a grand opening sale, which I don't really understand, but I bought a pair of shoes anyway. Then, and you'll never believe this, but Famous Footwear was having a Fall sale, so I got another pair of shoes and 4 pairs of socks. While I was in Claire's I was advised by the ever so helpful sales staff that it was a buy 2 get 1 free on all of their earrings, so I picked up 3 more pairs of earrings there. My last stop was FYE where I bought a Kid Rock CD. And that was pretty much all I got done today.

Thankfuls:
1. I'm thankful for my parents, they do so much for me.
2. I'm thankful for the beautiful Fall weather we're having right now.
3. I'm thankful for Fall sales!

And that was pretty much all I got done today.

That's all? LOL! You bought more stuff in one day than I've bought in the past five years, Amy! And I'm not exaggerating one lil bit. (Except in the music category. I buy a bit of music, I do.)

It is good to see you writing again. Shopping always makes me feel better. Sometimes I stop at the "bling" store and pick up some little something to brighten my day.

I am SO jealous you have all those stores. Curse this small town and it's Wally World!

Kristina said...

Some shopping spree! :-) The last time I did that, I ended up with no clothing and $250 worth of yarn. Sigh. :-)

I guess if all else fails, I could wrap myself in laceweight.

Good scores!

This looks like a great day! Wow, I am impressed! And I can tell you a secret, you have been doing my favorite thing - shopping lol:. Do you know what I saw on television this weekend? Pig-race in Tulsa!!! On the news-here in Norway-how fun is that. Hope you are doing well Amy, I think of you even if I have been a bit absent for some days. Take care!
