Spring Shopping Spree!

Yesterday I sold a diaper cake and cashed my Polka Dot Alligator Sale check. This means I had $140 for myself! What to buy?? Although I'd been thinking of getting a used treadmill, I found a few things last night in town that screamed, "BUY ME!" and nearly depleted my stash of cash. I met Anthony at Gatti's where we had a nice dinner together as a family. Afterwards, I asked him if he cared to take the boys on home while I went shopping. Of course, he didn't. He'd much rather sit at home than shop! I was thrilled at the prospect of shopping kid free and with some money! I headed over to the Mall Park Center and hit up Fashion Bug, Barnes & Noble Books, Kirkland's and Michael's. I left with a beautiful new dress and top, a book I'd been wanting, a decor piece for my house, a white skirt as well as a denim skirt, (They didn't have my size in stock so they're shipping the two skirts to my house for free!) AND some left-over money! That subscription to the paper is already saving me money. I had a $10 off coupon for Fashion Bug and they also had buy one get one 60% off as well as 30% off dresses and shrugs. Yay for discounts and coupons! I went to Target and bought a wedding shower gift for our friends afterwards and I enjoyed that almost as much as my spree for me! It was just a wonderful, enjoyable evening. I tried to copy the pictures of my clothes from Fashion Bug's website so I could post them here, but it wouldn't let me. However, here is a picture of my book. It's unPLANNED by Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood leader whose eyes were opened to the truth. I'm only one chapter into it but I can tell it's going to be good. I'm very passionate about my stance against abortion and my belief in the sanctity of life from the moment of conception. (That could be a whole post in itself.) Any way, I'm looking forward to a good read!
