Day 5

And what a good one!!! I had an awesome day today!

I woke up this morning at 7am with a major headache. This was not going to stop me from having fun today! I got dressed, ate some breakfast, hopped in the car, and drove to Newport News. While there I took some Equate for my headache and began a shopping spree with my sister-in-law Valli.

We drove to Williamsburg to shop at the Outlets. They've added a ton of stores to the outlet mall making it HUGE and awesome. We started by going to JCREW where I proceeded to but my husband a pair of plaid shorts and a polo to go with. Very cute. He will be excited! We then went to the Gap outlet where I bought a pair of dark brown corduroy pants for work. I'm pumped about these pants because they fit nicely and are comfy for work! We walked around many other stores and chatted up a storm. I bought a measuring cup for Dan (he's been wanting it for awhile :p) and a totally awesome corduroy skirt from BASS. My friend Keisha and her friend Victoria met up with us and we tackled the best store of all:


Keisha and Victoria were buying 2 purses each and I felt left out. I found the purse I had really wanted at the NEX a few months ago but missed out on. I decided to buy it and return the one Dan bought me for my birthday. He had wanted to get me the one I bought today, but it was out of our birthday price range so he got me the smaller version. The outlet price was just $20 more than the price he paid for the small one so I thought, "What the heck??" and spent the money. Hopefully we can return the small one to the NEX and I can keep this nice big one :) We shall see. My husband may just kill me :)

After shopping we decided to eat lunch/dinner at the Olive Garden. This was a grand time. We ate, chatted, and laughed a lot. "Would you like some boiling water?" Oh my.

We finished our spree with a trip to the Yankee Candle store. Very enjoyable and I didn't spend a penny!

All in all it was a fabulous day out with the girls. I really needed today and hope we can all do it again soon. I sure do miss my husband, but says like today make his being gone a little easier!

I know, today was super fun! I was just thinking that since V. lives in VA Beach by you, I should pick Keisha up someday and we should come down and have fun in the Beach. By the way, there's a store I want to go to called Home Goods...maybe we could go next week? Thanks for good shopping and good talks. *hugs!*
