Yesterday was great. I had a good day at work. Very productive & the phone rang less than a million times a minute, which is good :) I got so much done & the day FLEW by. LOVE!
After work, i came home, changed clothes (it got cold again...) & then Brad & I left for Charlynn's Birthday Dinner at Zippy's! Ok, i had never eaten at Zippy's...except once a long time ago...love! It's like a mexican subway. Meaning, you tell them what you want & they make it right there...but instead of sandwich stuff, it's mexican stuff! HA! I got Chicken Quesadillas & they were DELISH!! Brad got the same thing. Sooo yum.
I brought Brownie-Covered-Oreos as requested by the birthday girl & they were a HIT! Charlynn's friends that i did not know were all like "OMG! Who made these!?" & "THANK YOU!" Haha.
We had a great time. Some other theatre friends were there: Celeste & her daughter Arielle, Emily, Chuck, Evan & Davis. And Robert & his friend Holly came by right as we were leaving. :)
After dinner, Brad & I went SHOPPING. Oh, fun! HA! But we got it ALL done except what we are getting each other. :) We ran to one place & knocked out 2 gift cards there right away. I guess i shouldn't say where, even though i know my family isn't reading this...and if they will read it, it will be after the fact. (Okay..*cough*homedepot*cough). After that we went to Perkins Rowe. Brad wanted to go to Barnes & Noble but i wanted him to come with me to this store i'd never been in before to get another gift card. He came in with me but after i realized i LOVED this store, i told him he could just go to the bookstore. I knew i might be awhile! This store was awesome...Okay, i'll tell you. It's Francesca's. My sister's favorite store & where she wanted a gift card. (My sister NEVER reads my blog & today she is BUSY BUSY so she certainly won't read it before she opens her gift tonight! So i think i am safe!)
Anyway, i loved that store. They have so much cute stuff. And not expensive! I didn't get anything except for some cute socks (hey! I needed some!) & her gift card. After that, i ran into Charming Charlie's. I wasn't sure what time it was & they close at nine. It was full of people, though! This lady asked if i needed help & i told her i didn't & then i was like, "But aren't y'all about to close?!" They were closing in 5 minutes, but she told me to just go on & shop & take my time. I made a face because i used to work retail & i HATED when people came in right at closing time! She said, "seriously...if you don't shop i'm gonna be mad." HAHA. I thought that was SO nice. I looked around & took my time (plenty of others were in there, too.) About 5 sales associates asked me if i needed help & there was ZERO fake smiling or attitude problems underneath. I can sense that stuff a mile away. But everyone was so genuine & helpful. LOVE that!! So rare these days. Anyway, i got a couple pair of earrings for somebody & then went into Barnes & Noble. Picked up yet ANOTHER gift card. And i also got myself a novel. :)
I know it seems like we get a LOT of gift cards. It's just what everyone is asking for. My favorite thing is picking out a GREAT gift for someone, but if all they want is gift cards... what can ya do? I'm glad that they can get what they want. :) (And we didn't get gift cards for everyone! Just for those who asked for that! Which was the majority! Haha.)
FINALLY we went to Walmart. I am making peanut butter blossoms & spinach artichoke dip (a new one for me!) for our Christmas today. I wanted to go ahead & get that so i wouldn't have to go to Walmart today! We were SO tired & our feet were killing us, but we did it! HAHA. Now, i just need to get to wrapping presents & cooking! My side of the family is having Christmas with each other tonight since we are all not going to be together next weekend. :) I can't wait till tonight!
Well...hope you have an awesome weekend! :)
