"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

I shop therefore I am

As a woman, I feel as if I should have a strong love affair with the mall.  The problem is, I hate it.  I hate everytihng about the mall...the crowds...the kiosk vendors ready to give up their souls for a sale...the food court, full of delectable treats to tempt me...all of it.  So what would be so important, outside of the Christmas season, to drag me kicking and screaming to the mall, on a Monday of all days?

Its prom season again!

I went dress shopping with Alexa today.  It was a much better experience than last year, mostly because we started at the place we found the best dresses last year, completely skipping the shops we knew would be too expensive.

I was pleasantly surprised with the choices, and although we didn’t actually buy anything today, I think we will be back very soon to make our final decision. 

In other shopping news…

Mike and I went back to the tile store this evening to return a bucket of unused grout, and while we were there, we checked out the backsplash tile for the kitchen.  It is really too bad they don't have a shopping mall filled with home improvement stores and nothing else.  Now that is a mall I would happily visit. 

Have I mentioned how excited I am to finish the kitchen? 

Well…I am so very excited to finish the kitchen.

I wasn’t sure when we first picked this house, but I am certain now that this will be a very nice place to live. 

Once I’m done with it, that is.

Until the next time…I’ll be busy turning a house into a home!
