Retail Therapy is a Good Thing!

Ever have one of those weekends where you're totally psyched and then you get blindsided and WHAM! It's all over? Well I had one of those. Saturday was a bust and after a restless night and too few hours of sleep I was about to call Sunday a bust too.
I had made plans with Lynn for a full day of fun; brunch, shopping, chatting. The whole kit and caboodle! And then I woke up and my body groaned. UGHHHHH. LOL! Yep, I was a mess. After some serious "talking to" my brain worked its magic and I was in the game again.
A late start at 10:30, and a precarious drive (I'm sooo bad with directions I get lost in an elevator going Up!), I landed at her doorstep a little after noon. Woo-HOO!A little tour, and we were off to RI for some lunch and shopping. What fun time we had. I wont bore you with the details but here's Lynn with some of the loot, in front of her house. Excuse me, we were stimulating the local economy, hee-hee. I have to add in closing that we got kicked out of the last shoppe we went to... yep, again! We are so bad. We get together and close things down. Last time we closed down the mall, this time we closed down the shoppes in the village. Just goes to show that time flies when you're having fun!
Thanks Lynn for such a fun day, I really needed that! B=)

I have been known to close a few shops myself, especially antiue and vintage shops! I am always telling my husband that I'm helping the economy when I'm out with my friends :)
