Quick aside- today and yesterday felt like summer! It was glorious. Anyways, I wanted to blog about my shopping trip on Saturday. I didn't have time on Sunday and then yesterday I worked 9 hours(!!!) and promptly came home and crashed. So, yet again, I will tell you about my weekend, mid-week.
My epic shopping trip was for two reasons- firstly, I needed to find Lilly a present for her birthday and, secondly, I had a bit of tip money burning a hole in my pocket. I decided that I wanted to just wander around a few stores and see if anything caught my eye. I went to TJMaxx/Home Goods, Bed Bath and Beyond, JoAnne's, Christmas Tree Shops, and then Stop and Shop for gas/english muffins.
TJMaxx I found a few things for both Mum (for Mother's Day) and for Lilly. I hadn't planned on getting Mum anything, but I couldn't resist! I also discovered that they carry our Calphalon pots, so next time we're on the market, I want to check there since they're cheaper there than from Crate and Barrel. The only thing I got for myself at TJMaxx was a plain, round, mirror that I'm gonna put in the spare room for when I have to blow dry my hair in there (no outlets in the bathroom). B, B, & B all I ended up getting was another little jar on clearance for my make-up brushes.
JoAnne's was the real surprise. I wandered in mostly to check out their clearance Easter stuff, and ended up finding some nice bargains.
When I got home after all this, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the watch I ordered a while ago had arrived!
Yesterday before I passed out, I ran to the library to pick up the first of "The Secret Circle" books (I figured they might be better than the TV series). I was stoked because they also had the third Beka Cooper book (Tamora Pierce) and Alex Flinn's next book. Also picked up a few random other ones that seemed appealing. AND I got my ELLE magazine yesterday. Add to that the $50 in tips I made in the past three days and life is pretty good right now.
