Shopping Therapy!November 26, 2007
Ok! I feel so much better.
I went to Steve&Barry’s and actually tried on the winning design from Ep 2 of Project Runway that is now a part of Sarah Jessica Parker’s BITTEN line! It’s not ‘me’, unfortunately, and, well, it was just too weird on my middle-aged body. I really don’t know what I was thinking. But it was fun anyway! I tried to take a photo, too but my camera battery took that opportunity to play dead.
THEN! I was able to use my $5 off if I spend $35 coupon at Hallmark which I should know better but I don’t. I love cards! and I bought curling ribbon (I detest cheap curling ribbon – must be high quality, ie Hallmark quality – or I just cry) and candles and little stupid doohicky ornaments with my niece/nephew names so I could get up to $35!
AND… Target for a few toys for those same niece/nephews…. I have to ship those, so I will need to schedule the wrap and pack this week.
AND, MORE…. TJMaxx is my fave. Don’t even ask me what I bought: stationery, blank book, photo album (the thought is I can use this as a last minute gift if I need one? but it’s very pretty), and scrapbook paper!
and finally, the ONLY REASON I really left the house this morning was to buy Cuisinart water filters for my coffee pot. Cost $9.99 for two. Jiminy! I also bought pillows, this crazy garlic chopper, and a wine bottle stopper for a gift.
Check out this garlic chopper! It’s by Chefn; called a garlicZOOM. I’m going to bring it as my white elephant gift at a cookie exchange I have coming up.
