January 17, 2014


Justin and I went out for dinner last night and had an awesome time. On the way, I had to stop in at Indigo to get a few things and with what was left of a birthday gift certificate I bought myself this little treasure. It just spoke to me, so I brought it home. I've been really enjoying "girl things" recently and also getting back to gently working at having things that are both useful and beautiful. Hopefully this will be one of those things!


I was so happy to serendipitously find that I was going out yesterday, realized I'd be by a Best Buy and wanted a wireless mouse, and that they had them on sale!  I really wanted one for being able to watch stuff streaming to the TV and it will make such a difference not to have to get up any time I need to pause, change the volume, troubleshoot, etc.  Yippee!  Although less yippee for continued sideways pictures.  Blargh.


It was wet yesterday but I just couldn't help it. First, I went to the library to get Burn Notice Season 4. Then I thought, well, the bank is really close and I have this cheque… And at the bank I thought, the thrift store is so close!!! I can't believe I got to the thrift store on a day in January! I am loving this warm spell and I feel like it was an early birthday present for me. I even went out to lunch at McDonald's with coupons and treated myself to a cookie for 68 cents. I got soaked on the way home but I was happy.

LOL, it looks like it was all about the shopping for all of us!

I'm so glad that wireless mouse will make such a difference, Shannon! Yay!!! And that's weird about the sideways pictures. Hmm...

Suzie, that sounds like such a good day! I'm so glad you had this warm spell and are able to enjoy it!

What an awesome little purse Jamie! I'm assuming it's that - look change-purse-y, but treasure is a great word for it! What a delight and how wonderful to pick up something that spoke to your heart. Here's for girly things! :)

Amazing how one stop can lead to another when you are out and the weather is good, eh Suzie? I have that happen all the time. I'll just go here...and now I"m by here... I had a bit of a day like that yesterday, actually! I'm thrilled you got to get out and pick up some awesome stuff and treat yourself too. Sounds like a great day.

Late add from me! I was being so good this week!!

It's like a little purse, makeup bag, pencil case, that kind of thing. Maybe I'll use it for my Behind the Scenes makeup!

Suzie Ridler said...

Yay! Shopping day! OMG, cute little purse Jamie. Love sequins. You so rock the glam Jamie.

Shannon, it's like having a remote! Isn't that clever? I need one too for my laptop because of hand and arm pain so I am glad to hear they are on sale.

It's so true, weather makes al the difference indeed. I mean the freedom it can bring you! I am glad you went out too. :)
