Here I sit in the office with Kevin & Mom, browsing my typical blogs, drinking coffee made by my husband, and watching Biggest Loser. Mom and I had a nice relaxing conversation filled morning and hit the road around noon for a bit of shopping spree. I love shopping with her better than almost anyone else because it’s just most comfortable. I don’t feel like I’m holding her up or she’s holding me up. We look for the same deals, scour the same racks, give good advice. On top of the 50-90% off sales, we received and additional 30% with mom’s coupon. I left with a glorious pair of pinstripe black slacks for $6.50 (down from ~$49), a sweater/blouse combo for $6.50, two long sleeved shirts for $2, and the comfy-est pair of Sketcher’s shoes in the world for $13 (down from $60). I also helped mom make a few terrific purchases for herself and the home.
We hit a late light lunch at Johnny Rocket’s–a great 50s style diner that I’d been wanting to visit. On our drive home I remembered I wanted to show her Monroe’s Crafts 2000–a craft store similar to a large JoAnn Fabrics or Michael’s with a minimum of 40% most products. We had a blast hitting every aisle in this enormous store and at least getting a glance at their endless products.
Once all three of us were home again, I threw together a great dinner of stuffed green peppers that turned out fantastically. Now for more relaxing…
