I love weekends! Doesn't everybody? I love getting to sleep in and not having any major responsibilities (at least not today anyway).
I went shopping with my friend Kelly, and we didn't have any hurry. It seems like I'm always rushing somewhere these days, and I never get to take my time and just explore the stores as I'm running errands. That's so not like me, because I LOVE shopping. It's so much fun. I don't even have to buy much. I could be shopping for groceries or deodorant or toothpaste, and it's still fun.
We went to Target first where, funny enough, I actually did need deodorant. And I got to help Kelly pick out stuff for her kids' Easter baskets. I also found a few things for my SIL's b-day in the dollar bins - gotta love that. Then we went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond where I bought this clock my MIL was looking at for the cabin.
I feel great this year about gift shopping. I'm trying to buy things as I see them or as someone points out that they like them. Then I shove them in the closet (which is now labeled the "gift closet") and hopefully don't forget when the occassion arrives that I've already bought them something. I just felt so rushed at Christmas this last year trying to get all my shopping done. I'm usually so organized with that, but this past year it was all last minute. I used to be finished with my Christmas shopping by the end of November every year. What happened to me???
Anyway, we went to World Market next where I had to get some wine. You can't go in that place without buying some. Come on, I know you can't, so don't even lie about it! :) They had a wine tasting going on too, which was even more fun.
We hit the mall on the way back home. We had to take a picture of the Easter bunny to show Kelly's kids. Then we hit Hallmark and B. Dalton.
Now I'm just sitting down haning out. We are having some friends over for an informal dinner, so I am going to pick up the house a little before they get here, but I know that they don't care what it looks like. That's always a nice thing. Anyway, tomorrow is Easter. Then it's back to work on Monday. But all in all, it's not a bad way to spend the weekend...
