Say what...

It was just beautiful out Saturday that I made sure I wasn't indoors. I took my little nephew out shopping after we went to the park and let me tell you, I'm out of the loop.

I always hear friends talking about their favorite stores and where they got that new shirt but I realized that some of these stores I have never even been to! So here are some things I learned on this shopping trip...

Lesson #1
Visit the stores your friends mention...Now! Home Goods is one of those stores that if you haven't been there, you need to go. It was first store I decided to visit and I have no idea why I didn't drag myself out there before. I think it might be because I knew I could go bankrupt there.

I bought two bread pans, a cupcake plunger (OK that just sounds bad, I know) and a duster for $30. I think I got something else but I can't remember. Trust me, that's not even close to what I wanted to buy but when you are trying to save to buy another house, money must be spent wisely

Lesson #2
I need to go shopping more. I headed to Kohls next and realized that it has been way to long since I have shopped for clothes. As I look through the clothes on the rack I also realized that I have no idea what's in style right now.

I found some items I liked and headed to the dressing room. I didn't like any of the pants I tried on but really liked two shirts, until I saw the price tag. Is it just me or is $38.00 for a shirt ridiculous? It was on sale but even with with sale it was $21.00. Really...

I just couldn't justify buying a shirt that cost over $20. I spend all day looking to add something to my closet and found nothing... That was the saddest moment of the weekend.

Sunday was a relaxing day. I crocheted a few things this morning, attended church and enjoyed dinner at my moms. Oh and she made this delicious cake for my nephew's birthday which is on Wednesday.
