Slice of Life ~ Connecting on a Tuesday

Good thing that I don’t go shopping very often - I may need to find a second job. Today sure was fun though; spent some time with one of my favorite shopping partners. A couple years ago we started a back to school shopping tradition (we are both teachers) and found that we are very compatible consumers. We’re like two little girls picking out our first day of school outfits, shoes, and maybe even a new purse. With nothing really in mind today, we perused Marshall’s home department scooping up some deals and having a good chat as we filled our carts. The time flew by with just enough time left for lunch. Last time out, we had to plan a second day when we ran out of time for lunch. Going out to eat and lingering over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, we get lost in conversation. Connecting with a treasured friend was just what I needed to put a smile on my face and some balance back in my life.

  1. Shopping friends, that's dangerous and wonderful

  2. Bookstores with a fellow book-aholic is my downfall. Sometimes it's shoe stores too. Meeting up with the friend is time well spent.

  3. I have a friend like this--she's a gift. Marshall's home department--feeds my colorful kitchen with more color! Thanks for reminding me of these "good" things. I love, love, love your picture!

  4. I am a horrible shopper. I just want to get in and out and most of my friends like to browse so I usually shop solo. The exception is the fabric or book store. I could linger there with a friend for hours :)

  5. President's Day weekend is great one for shopping - usually stocked for two seasons and we're not quite in one or the other at this time of year.
