First Birthday Gift of 2008


I received a birthday present today! True to her style, Kim went over and beyond- I received a BEAUTIFUL bag full of handpicked goodies. Kim always finds me the most beautiful pins for my collection. Today she gave me a gold and amber flourish that is so pretty! She also gave me a beautiful hardbound journal, a piece of inspiration art that I have read about 100 times since she gave it to me a few hours ago, a killer picture frame for a cruise photo, and the elusive lanyards I am always needing.
Kim and I spent the afternoon shopping. She needed a "particular" brown skirt. We looked in a few stores--she found the perfect one--but not in her size so they called around to other malls and found one at a Dillard's-- back in Charlotte, where she started looking!! How about that??
I found Spencer a few short sets at Gymboree. Belks was having a decent sale so I ended up buying a new dress for myself. Supposedly, I went to this mall looking for jeans for my Canadian friend- they didn't have her jeans, but I ended up buying myself new stuff. Funny how that seems to always happen...

Happy Birthday!!!
It funny how when you have no intetions of buy anything, a sale can tempt the best of us. I spent $40 on Maggie today on summer clothes, and no shorts for me which was what I was out for.
