I ::heart:: shopping. It’s been forever (close to 4 months) since I went on a shopping trip. I took a cruise to the mall in Green Bay today because, let’s face it, shopping in the U.P. pretty much sucks ass. For whatever reason I went a little crazy in Bath & Body Works. I realize we have one in town but there was something about being out of town shopping plus being in one of my favorite stores PLUS Christmas stuff being on display that triggered some sort of abnormal “OHHH!! LOOK AT THIS!!” reaction. I limited myself to getting Warm Chestnut Cheer Anti-bacterial Hand Soap, Vanilla Bean Noel Body Wash, some candy apple lip gloss, and Spiced Cider fragrance oil. When I went into Old Navy I wanted to buy more scarfs in the worst way but I was able to restrain myself. I’m still pretty amazed that I only walked away with the stuff from B&BW and a couple bras from Victoria’s Secret.
Now you’re gonna laugh but I have to tell you what my absolute favorite purchase of the day was… I bought myself a remote control helicopter.
Yup. A remote control helicopter. Oh.My.Gawd. I ::heart:: it. I played with it for about 15 minutes today. Denzel & Reggie were pretty good sports about the whole thing. I only crashed into Reggie once (it’s super light so he was more irritated than wounded). I’m already getting pretty awesome at controlling it. I made some pretty outstanding landings. The best was when I landed and took off from a 3” platform. I swear I was so excited I just about screamed. *giggle* I believe this fabulous little toy is gonna pull me away from my 360 for a while.
