It’s been awhile since I went on a shopping spree. I think it was actually 09’ when I last went. Well a very dear friend of mine had sent me a few gift cards to some fun places, for my birthday and I had yet to use them. PLUS, my most excellent Mom and Dad had sent me some birthday money as well and I’m pretty sure it was burning a hole in my pocket. So before it got absorbed into the grocery money, I figured I better make hast and spend it on me. LOL!
So without further ado, Kim’s Shopping Trip 11’.
Who better to go with me then my very best friend on the planet, Kathy. We started off at Steinmart. I usually don’t like Steinmart because they are so crazy expensive but I had a 50% off Red Dot Clearance coupon so I felt the need to at least give it a shot. I did end up getting a very nice shirt for $10.00. But I can’t show it to you right now because I’m washing it. What I can show you is the fun Kathy and I had in the hat department.
They had some really crazy headbands. These are just a couple of them.
Kathy looks like she’s getting ready to go to Paris. LOL!
We calmly and quietly left Steinmart before security threw us out for having too much fun and was on our way to The Avenue in Viera. It’s just a place where there are a whole bunch of stores close by.
One of my gift cards was for Ross, where I picked up these adorable bowls and a straw holder, because we like straws and they had no holder.
While there we decided that we would each pick out a pair of shoes for the other to try on and of course my BFF picks the highest shoes she can find. So then I followed suit by picking up some seriously insane high heels for her.I didn’t dare move because I was afraid I’d twist my ankle and fall, because I’m that graceful.
After our little run way show at Ross’s we ventured over to Pier One Imports.
Here we found some really cook masks to try on. Masquerade Ball anyone?
No we didn’t buy them. I’ve never been invited to a masquerade ball but if I ever do I know where to go for a mask.
I left there with a candle and a present for my daughter. Yes, I used part of my gift card for my daughter. What can I say? I’m good like that.
By now we were starting to get a little hungry so we went to the Pita Stop and had lunch. We walked around Charming Charlies and Bed Bath and Beyond. In the middle of Bed Bath and Beyond we both started to get a little tired and our backs were starting to hurt. We’ve been standing and walking for about 4 hours at this point. Yes, people, we’re getting old.
I had a Starbuck’s gift card so we decided we’d get a coffee and head to our last stop, Wal-Mart.
Since I wanted to sit and give my back a rest and finish my coffee, we headed straight to the chair section in Wal-mart. We found us a couple of folding chairs and sat right in the middle of the aisle and finished drinking our coffee. What?
These are our tired faces!
We finished our coffee, put the chairs back, got a cart and finished our shopping.
I bought a lot of spray paint, so I’ll be spray painting something today.
Well there you have it. Kim’s Shopping Trip 11’.
I’ll take me another 2 years to recoup from this one. OY!
HAVE A FABULOUS DAY MY FRIENDS!
