28 October 2007

I had the best day. After dropping Emily off, I headed to Kohl's. First I hit the jeans department. I brought about 10 pairs into the dressing room...I hate having to go back and forth with sizes. I like that there's no attendant at Kohl's too see how much merchandise you bring in. Three pairs of Levi's fit me perfectly! Why have I suffered with one old pair of jeans for so long? I picked up two 'active wear' sets--zippered fleece jackets with matching bottoms in gray and in blue. I resisted the urge to buy a 7' pre-lit white Christmas tree. Really. I bought a hummingbird ornament that I put on a potted plant at home. I picked up a rug for in front of my kitchen sink. Picked up a birthday gift for my neighbor. Bought a new purse. All for the grand total of $160. And I now have 3 pairs of new jeans. La de da!!! I like them as much as the pair at The Gap.

My friend Kit came over on her way to bring a visiting friend to the airport. She wanted to show her friend my house, and I didn't even hear them come in, I was so intent on vacuuming. Lesson: don't leave your door unlocked while vacuuming. It could have been an intruder surprising me. I volunteered to drive to the airport since it's close and I know the way. When I got home, Emily was there and we talked about her day, and spent some time together.

I stopped by my folk's house to take care of an errand, then headed off with Kit to the book club. We were a lively group of 11. It gets really loud when we're together because there's so much to catch up on. We ordered Chinese food; the first time we've done that, and everyone was pleased. About the book: Two of us didn't like it. Three others didn't read it. Everyone else loved it. The next book on the agenda is Elsewhere. I hope the group likes it as much as I did. [Emily plans to read it and join in on the discussion. She's wanted to read it, so this will be perfect.] The December meeting is also our holiday party. It'll be the third time I'm hosting, and it means my house will be decked out in all it's Christmas finery. Nothing like a party to make you get ready. I really do want a white tree, and a tinsel tree. In addition to the other trees. Oh, I can see it now...

I need new jeans too.
Kohl's is evil. I NEVER get out of that store without spending $160! What's up with that?

KOHLS!! I LOVE KOHLS!!!! I know what tree you're talking about as well!!

I can tell you love Xmas the best, am I right or wrong? :) Holidays are the best but there something so incredibly awesome and magical about Christmas...

the book club pic is really cute! I like the ladies table..I need to find something like that..

SO you've moved on from the living room furniture to the white Christmas tree decorating, right? :)
Happy Monday!!! Glad you had a great time, and you found things that Fit...and I do agree with you about Kohls that's what I like best about that store..that and well, the clearance racks back near the one dressing room marked 75% off!! YEA!!!
Always,
Crusty~

I'm just going to order a few pairs of jeans online and try them on at home. I'll send back the ones that don't fit. LOL

Oh, and I won't lecture you on not locking your door when home alone THIS TIME. LOL

I lecture my sister about it so often she's sick of hearing. She just rolls her eyes and that make it even worse. haha But, she has a big house and spends a lot of time in the basement in her craft room. People could clean her out upstairs without her even knowning it.

I love Christmas decorations. Everybody is going to have to post their tree and decorations for me to see. ;-)

I'm with Jay - lock your doors! :)
I'm so jealous of your book club. I've joined a couple but they seem to just fall apart after one or two meetings and no one ever read the book. Yours looks like a group of fun ladies!

Kelly Jene said...

We just got a Kohls in our neighborhood. Looks like I'm gonna have to check it out. Sounds like you got quite the haul!

Did it relieve you that a couple others hadn't finished the book?

I'd love to see pictures of your house when its decorated. How fun!

You have the biggest smile in the room. You take great pictures. Congrats on the jeans!

Terroni said...

I was thinking the same thing as abbagirl about you and pictures!

Now, you have me thinking about Christmas decorations. I am considering getting a tree for the first time in several years.

Cheryl said...

I always put a big smile on my face for pictures. I know it's my best look, LOL!

And you know I'll have loads of Christmas pictures. You'll have to ask me to stop!

Portia said...

La de da indeed! Your book club does look like a fun group. I'm glad it was such a great day, shopping trip and all:)

White Christmas tree!! I love the white ones. I have a bad habit, whn I go to people's houses or malls for the holidays, I make a beeline to the Christmas tree, and be standing there for ages taking in all the beauty of the tree :), nobody can drag me away frm the tree until I am good and ready!
Good to be in a club like tht!

HeiressChild said...

the book club sounds like a real nice fellowship each month. stimulating discussion, delicious food, good friends, what more could you ask for? well, maybe a little more, but this is still good fun. lol
