Things I learned today
Today was my day off. I had a long list of things I wanted to do and as I headed out into the great wide world, I picked up a few tidbits of knowledge... or was at least reminded of them.
Never eat at Five Guys alone. One order of fries is enough to feed a small country. Holy. Crap.
Sometimes songs on the radio can really speak to you. Two songs in a row I think were meant for me. "I'm young, wild and I'm free" (by Triumph). and then "Born to Run" (by The Boss). I realized that this is supposed to be the best time of my life- and I need to get off my arse and take advantage of my freedom! I'll start in a few days by taking in a three state tour. I'm pretty excited!
I should never be allowed to be let loose in Jordan Landing with a debit or credit card. Seriously.
I love Pier One. Love. It. It makes me sad to go there when I know full well I can't buy anything- because I have no where to put it. I have no home to decorate! but I am head over heels in love with this Rug.
Seriously. I might marry it.
I am a sucker for anything with glitter and/or feathers. So when I found this Christmas tree covered in both- I was full of smit!
Awesome! I even relented a teeny bit on my judgement of having Christmas decorations out and Holiday tunes blaring overhead. Just look at the gorgeous glittery masks! It has absolutely *nothing* do do with Christmas... but it's so PRETTY!!!
No matter how hard I wish- the chances of me walking into a store (mostly Barnes & Noble) and being the millionth, billionth or whatever number-eth customer- and getting a $10,000 shopping spree will probably never come true.
Baby girls are so much more fun to shop for than boys!
