Took the youngling to work today and I've got this list of stuff that I have to buy for other people.
My mom wants me to shop for gifts for my stepdad from her.
My stepdad wants me to pick up some things for her from him.
Mom wants me to shop for gifts for the kiddo from her.
I love shopping. I love just walking around even when I don't have any money to spend, but the best ever is shopping on someone else's dime. That's like the cats meow!
So anyhoo, on the way home, I'm kinda looking around cuz I don't go out to that part of town very often, not real sure what's there. I see the sign for Ross. Heard of it, but never been there.
Unbelievably, my stepdad is the ONLY one who knows EXACTLY what he wants.
A bottle of Chanel No. 5. The real stuff, not cologne, but p.a.r.f.u.m. to the tune of about $100 an ounce.
Not simple. Can't find one anywhere. So I figured I'd try Ross.
Well, I'm enthralled now. In love. In lust. In way over my head cuz I have no money at all to spend, not a dollar, not a dime, not even two pennies to rub together and make a squeaky sound. We have, are you ready? $13 in the bank to last til the end of the month. Ugh. Hello mayo sammiches.
Anyhoo, I found Mom some REALLY cute stuff to give my youngling for Christmas. A set of Aubrey Hepburn coasters, one of those really frilly mannequin type jewelry holders with a to. die. for. dress on, and an Aubrey Hepburn 2011 planner. All of this was approximately 15.00. Needless to say my Mom loves me right now.
Spent the whole afternoon there which is why I'm only now getting around to telling you guys all about it. THEN when I went to pick the youngling up from work, I took her. She fell in love with it too. I could literally walk around there for hours just looking and wishing.
They've got the most fantabulous home furnishing section and I might have to go back to take pictures just so I can show you guys all the beautiful stuffies I found!
So, the kiddo got her Dad (edited since he's going to be reading this) which he is going to L.O.V.E. and she got a new pair of shoes for herself with her first paycheck. She picked up a gorgeous elephant to give her paternal grandparents and a box of blue gummy whales for the sorry horrid boyfriend which I still pretend isn't so sorry and horrid.
Spent two hours there with her so now I'm finally home, have neglected you guys horribly today and now I'm exhausted! But in a good way! So that was my day, first really exciting day I've had in a while and now I need a serious nap!
So have you guys been to Ross? Did you love it too?
