My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

I spent all day Saturday (like 6 hours worth!!!) shopping!

The good part was that I was out and about in the sunshine alone, getting things marked off a rather long awaited todo list.

The bad part is that it was 106 degrees outside according to my car thermometer.

The good part is that it WASN'T tax free weekend!!!

The bad part is everyone and their dog was out anyway, apparently, like me, avoiding tax-free weekend!!

First I filled the gas tank....which is where I saw this sign on the windshield squeegie holder:

I have no idea what it means. don't understand it in the slightest.....but it makes me laugh like crazy!!

My next stop was Michael's

The good part is that I found some of the needed stuff for this years Christmas gifts!

The bad part is here we are half-way through August already! I'm BEHIND getting started!!

But Michael's didn't have the medal I needed to fix hubby's rosary so I headed down to Hobby Lobby for that.

The bad part is Hobby Lobby had only 1 choice of rosary medals.

The good part is now all our rosaries that were in bits and pieces are back in working order yeah!!

I stopped by my favorite quilt store....

The bad part is that I spent a lot getting all the fabric for this year's Christmas ornaments...

The good part is I found a huge remnant of gorgeous white on white with MUSIC NOTES! at 15% off.

My next stop was the Outlet mall.

The bad part is that ice cream makers are seasonal and they're sold out.

The good part is that the Reebok store actually had my size in the easytone shoes.

The bad part is that the stethoscope I wanted was $230.

The good part is I was able to find scrubs that actually fit......TWO SIZES smaller than what I've been wearing for the last two years!

Then it was on to Target for some weekly shopping.

The good part is I got everything on the list.

The bad part is I forgot to put on my new shoes before beginning my solitary Target Trail of Tears.

a quick drive through Saxby's, my favorite coffee shop and I made it home in time to put the hooligans to bed.

It was a great day!

Oh, and I wanna tell you that I am THAT person! You know, the one who goes through the store singing and be-bopping to the in-house music? Yup that'd be me. Thank you.

Sounds like a great day, and too bad you didn't have those Easy Tones on all day. You'd probably be sore if you did.

I sing too if they have a good soundtrack!

Linda said...

The good part is that you had a fantastic time while out and about. The bad part is yea, I'm THAT person, too!

Remember a certain post back in June when I gave everyone their 6-month warning for Christmas?


I'm going to have to schedule one of those multi-errand days soon. I always dread it. I hate shopping.

Love the Metallica playing in the background. :)

Nothing is better than an errand day going well!

Tax free weekend? I've never heard of it, but I do like the sound of it.

Lisa said...
