Shopping, shopping & that loooong survey

Today has been a busy, busy day. Lots of errands to run, but I think we got most of them done. Tomorrow we need to go get fish tank stuff and a few other Wal-Mart items. Today I went to TJ Maxx and got a new purse (Nine West for $20), a laptop bag (Nine West and only $25!), a new jacket, and a Sims Six-pack of games for Jason. Then it was Half-Price Books to get Confessions of a Shopaholic (have to read it very fast for Nicole’s Book Club! Already on chapter 5, so I should be done by the end of the weekend) and I also got the U-571 and Men of Honor DVDs ($12 each!). Stopped at Ross to try to get a wallet, but they didn’t have any. Then to Target where I got 2 pairs of shoes (one pair is a duplicate of the sandals I already have but they are so worn they are starting to fall apart), some new Mauve nailpolish, a small flag stake & flag for the pot on the patio, and some knit pj pants. A quick stop at home and then we went to Best Buy to look for a new cordless phone, mine is dead. Then to the other Ross store by my house so I could look for a wallet – and I got one for 99 cents! Whoo hoo! Ralph Lauren, but it matches the purse so well. Over to Franklin Covey at the mall so I could get address pages for my planner. Then … I could not resist the temptation, so I went over to August Max. I got the *cutest* pair of pants, and a shirt to go with them! They are so adorable, black with sequins by the hem. So adorable!
