I don’t know what go into me yesterday.
It was errand day.
I am so blessed to have my mom (Grams) nearby and willing to help out any time I need it. I don’t remember when…but sometime over the last year or so she started keeping the kids for me once a week. Errand Day.
And usually…that’s exactly what it is.
Trolling aisles at BJs and Stop & Shop. All business. Bleh. I can’t stand food shopping.
But yesterday something got into me.
I didn’t buy anything practical at all.
Instead, my wardrobe is now enhanced with a couple pairs of super cute wide legged linen pants from Lane Bryant. I couldn’t resist that beautiful “thanks for everything you do” dress for Grams either. Especially with the additional 60% off! A long grey skirt, a cute little tank and a lightweight coat were 75% off scores from Target! Oh…and I finally bought those adorable red polka dotted oven mitts that I’ve been eyeing forever. I got my hair cut too (it’s been over a YEAR!). Regis was having a $9.95 special. And know what? It really doesn’t look too bad! I spent hours just walking the aisles. Touching this. Studying that. Getting absolutely nothing important done. Just blowing a whole day.
Errand Day somehow morphed into Me Day.
And it was awesome!
Of course…now the fridge is bare. But at least I’ll look cute in wide legged linen sweet-ness when I tell the kids it’s cereal for dinner tonight!
