Here are the goods Joe came back with from Africa:
Five days till I am home. Five! And I couldn’t be more excited. Things I plan on doing just because you can in America.
* Go shopping on Sunday for no reason at all.
* Order refills on soda at a restaurant.
* Go to a movie that was just released.
* Drive under 80 mph on the highway. Not looking forward to this one.
* Buying clothes in dollars, although Zara is totally worth the exchange rate.
* Eat mexican food, buffalo wild wings, mondo’s, bruegger’s, etc. And if I were in Chicago – Cafe Babareeba, Rockit, Star of Siam, Go Roma, Shaw’s, etc.
* Catch up on shows courtesy of Hulu.com. This may take days.
* Go shopping at a mall.
Only five days till bliss.
Have you ever lost an item that was significant to you? Or maybe an item that wasn’t so significant in price but was something you loved? I have lost two pieces of jewelry in my life that I never found back. One was a pair of diamond hoop earrings my mom gave me for high school graduation, which have since been replaced. The other was this red necklace I purchased at Nordstroms several years ago:
This picture is at least 6 years old and my natural hair color!
For the past several months I have been searching for something similiar, often finding ones that are either way too expensive – $250! or not the right shade of red/orange. But today, I found one thanks to Target of all places. It cost about the same price ($14.99) as the original and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
Every six months or so I get the itch. The itch to buy a new handbag. Whenever I whine to my husband about needing a new purse he immediately runs to the closet and grabs all of my bags and asks “Do you really need ANOTHER purse?” Yes. Yes, I do. I am currently looking at these three:
I’m leaning towards the DKNY. Now if I could only convince my husband I bought it years ago.
