Good Ol' Window shopping ~

This last Saturday, my daughter Diandra had to take a test in Fresno. She asked me to go with her to keep her company on this long drive and suggested that I do some shopping while she took the test. I thought that sounded nice. I always like to take time browsing through some of my favorite stores and also see what else is out there. We got there in time for her test, but realized that I was going to have to hang out an hour and one half before the stores actually opened. I walked around the stores and looked through the windows to see which one I thought was worthy to actually go into. I figured that it would save me some time and I could make a plan. I got cold and decided to go to Starbucks. I sat down on a bench that was behind this other bench. A young man in a business suit sat down on the bench in front of me with his coffee and flipped his phone open and started looking at pictures of himself admiring his tattoo that was across his back from shoulder to shoulder. That felt a little uncomfortable, so I got up, walked around and did some more window shopping. The stores finally opened and I was so excited to finally enter Anthropologie. I immediately went to the clearance racks to see what I could find. My cell phone rang and I pulled it out of my coat pocket to see who it was. I was confused because I seen Diandra's pretty little face come up on the screen of my phone. She had told me they weren't allowed to have their phones, so I wouldn't be hearing from her until the test was over which was scheduled at 1:00 in the afternoon. She was calling to tell me that they were having problems with the test and it was canceled. Diandra was so frustrated and disappointed. She would have to reschedule and be going by herself this time. I was disappointed too, but felt bad for her even more. Oh well... I did do some serious window shopping.

  3. Window shopping costs so little. It should be everyone favorites. We went into a big box store to order a new shower door and have it put on (my DH's eyes just can't see well enough to do it anymore!) and we had such fun saying mean things, like,"This is the ugliest thing I've ever seen for $500," and the like. Oh, you are a mean one Mrs. Grinch, I sang to myself! But, I couldn't get out the part about a heart like a dried up raisin because I was laughing too much!!!!!!

  5. I've got a file called "things that I like". I look through catalogs that somehow I end up on (their mailing list!?) and pull out pages of coats, pants, shoes, anything and everything that I like. It's wierd afterwords I feel just as satisfied as if I had gotten all those things. Sooner or later catalog and pages end up in the recycling bin. I also sneakily use my camera phone at department stores! Love you ange.
