Retail Therapy...

You know the saying "Shop till you drop!"? Well the thing is I love to shop and very, very seldom do I ever drop! I was able to go out this afternoon with Amy and her daughter and we had a good time browsing quite a few stores. Our main goal was the sales racks at the Gap store in Village point where I found the incredible red shirt above in the picture. Then after we finished there we stopped in at Whole Foods and found some stuff to eat along with a great cup of coffee and as always they have their recycled grocery bags for purchase. I love their new design for their bags for the summer (pictured above). Thought it was really cute! Then of course since we were on that side of town it would have been a sin not to stop in at the Pottery Barn stores! we went. Ok, well as most people know, if I had the means I would furnish my entire house out of Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn kids-it's one of my most favorite stores! But since furnishing my entire house out of Pottery Barn is not an option, I enjoy browsing the store for ideas and looking through their seasonal clearance. My splurge for the evening though was the cute little flowered piggy bank above. I've had my eye on it for quite a while, but of course it wasn't on sale like all of the other piggy banks....no000, and it had the be the last one they had in stock. And Amy said that Iwanted the pig therefore I needed the pig and I should buy I caved and the pig came home with me!!! I considered putting it in Morgan's room, but on 2nd thought it'll probably end up on my desk in my office! mmm...I think I'll start a shopping fund!!!!! It's definitely the little things in life that make us smile...oh and by the way the pig wasn't that expensive, I would just rather find things on sale than pay full price- who wouldn't!? Happy Birthday, Amy! Thanks for going shopping with me today!
