I (heart) shopping!

Jay and I just returned from a short visit to Virginia Beach where the majority of the time Stacie and I drag Jesse and Jay shopping. It's usually kicking and screaming. Usually I just shop online at JCrew, Forever21 and NY & Co.

So.....we made a trip around the mall and here is what we found:

1. Forever21 (in store): tank tops! I found several other tops that I liked but Jay did not.... hence the $2.50 rainbow of shirts. Good stuff.

2. American Eagle: nothing for me! (surprisingly!) Jay has needed new jeans forever but he is very picky about style and fit. We found two pair on sale, I almost had a coronary. He bought them without much of a fight either!

3. Coach: nothing big altough when we were leaving the store Jay asked me if I wanted anything else...... not sure what happened there and why I missed it. I just got some cleaner for my handbag.

4. Williams Sonoma: the best smelling grapefruit cleaner anywhere! I was only going to get one small overpriced $9 bottle but Jay started looking at ounces and cost benefit analysis and we got two big bottles for $30. Geez.

5. Charlotte Russe: I normally don't buy a ton here but I got this cute little pink top with flowers on it. Perfect for spring if it ever gets here!

And then today we went out again!

6. Best Buy: 3 movies on sale, all Jay's idea.

7. Lowes': vent deflectors and a level (basically my V-Day gift for Jay, nevermind he picked it out himself

8. HomeGoods: Yay, stuff for the house! I got some baking items, finally got a angel food cake pan! Also got a cute little palm throw to go on our bed.

Now if I could only blog about the things I wanted to buy and didn't!! :)

Great weekend, now on to the Amazing Race and then Extreme Home-Makeover! Off tomorrow, think I'll head to Bed, Bath & Beyond.

:) Happy shopping everyone! Where does everyone else like to shop?

Coulda, woulda, shoulda

Ah, the list of things that I would like to continually get more consistent with!

1. Running
2. Taking my vitamins

These three things are always in the back of my mind as things I would like to make habits! But somehow with work and life, they always get pushed back in priorities. Well Jay recently made 2 of the above things a lot easier!

1. Mid-January we purchased a treadmill! On facebook I got lots of pokes about hanging clothes on it but it has been quite useful, especially with all the snow the eastern coast has been getting! I love this treadmill, it has a hook up for my iPod so I can hook it into it's speakers and rock out while I run. Not to mention, Jay bought me a DVD player to be hooked up to our extra TV in the basement, I have no excuse not to run!

2. Jay is a very practical man. We never go out to eat on Valentine's Day because he thinks they jack up the prices, which of course they do. If I go the day after, I usually get to pick wherever I want to go in that compromise. So I was not surprised at his Valentine's gift he gave me last night. An old lady daily vitamin storage thingy, what is the word for this thing? It's a plastic container that holds all your daily vitamins for both AM and PM thus making it far to easy not to take daily! What a man! The outer package said it was approved by the arthritis foundation. I'm set.

3. With these other two goals so attainable now, I'm not sure how much of an excuse I will have not to blog. The trick being, what to write about. I have plenty (okay, copious amounts) of drama at work but if I wrote it here, it would get me fired it's so juicy! :) So we'll see what I can get to entertain the masses in it's absence.

Alas, that is all I have time for tonight. Going to see our friends the Gibsons, new little baby girl. Good night for now!
