So much fun!! We went shopping with some amazing ladies from church tonight and it was soooo much fun! We all had dinner together at Spaghetti Warehouse, Yum! And then hit the stores! We found some great sales. Mom got the cutest outfit! An adorable shirt, some pants, and some to die for shoes! I'm so proud of her! She got it all for MUCH less than retail. The sales lady told her she saved $118 off retail!!!! Now you can't beat that! I did find a few things that I liked, but ended up not buying anything. I wasn't too in love with any thing in particular. There was one pair of shoes that I really wanted to go back for, but I was too afraid that I wouldn't be able to stand up for very long in them. They were on clearance for $10 and had a "take an additional 20% off" tag on them, which would have made them $8. Everytime I think about it I think what a shame it is that those shoes are still on the shelf. Is the pain worth spending $8 on a cute pair of shoes? I can easily be talked into walking right back in there and getting them. LOL! They were cute, and I could walk in them, just not sure if I could stand still in them. Girls, I may go back for the shoes. Seriously, they were that cute. Anyway, we had a blast tonight! We got to know our new youth ministers wife a little better. She is going to fit in great with our "crowd". I think she had a good time. We laughed a LOT, (so much I was afraid we were going to get tossed out of Dillards!) and really had a fun fun time. We stayed till the mall closed, ran into Ernest and Debra (Debra looked so cute!) and saw a few more people from church. And we even got the girls at C.J. Banks to laugh and cut-up with us for a bit. It was so much fun shopping. We split into groups but kept running into each other which of course meant getting to show Mom's cute stuff off a few times. :) She's seriously going to look so cute! I can't wait to see her all dressed up in her new outfit! What is it about shopping that makes me so relaxed? Or is it that I was with so many of the women I cherish? I have not laughed so much in a long long time. And I came home with TONS of energy so I think I may do some scrapbooking or reading. Or I may just pace the floor till the mall opens tomorrow and I can go get my shoes. LOL! Help me Lord, I'm a shop-a-holic!

I think when God created us we came with the "shopaholic" piece of a brain lol.

Good story, made me feel like shopping...and I usually am like you, I have a shopping buddy who buys everything except the cash register lol, and I get few things.

Unless I really need something, I try to avoid spending.

with the exception:
buying books
journals(I collect them, write the first two pages and then buy another lol)

Have a great day.
