Last night I had the joy of a). going out to dinner with friends in my Sunday school class and b). doing a little shopping afterward ALONE, without my wiggle worm named Stephen Small.
Unfortunately I am a SLOW and particular shopper. I wish it weren't so, but its my reality. It takes me awhile to make a decision. Reason being...I most often know exactly what I want, but what I want usually can't be found. I set the bar too high with my specific taste. Typically I pour over the decision of settling for 2nd best and most often walk out of stores empty handed. I struggle with this most when shopping for clothes. It has been a problem for me since my childhood. Really. A real problem.
However, last night I felt as though I hit the jack pot. I went searching to find Stephen Small some fall play clothes and I found Stephen Small some fall play clothes. It was like manna from heaven. I found what I needed! What I wanted! Cute stuff. And in my price range.
It all came from Kohl's, which I have a new love and respect for.
I also made a quick stop in Joann's to buy a yard of this vintage - looking cowboy fabric. I've been eying it for weeks.
The big reveal of what I'm going to make with it will hopefully be sooner rather than later. My final deadline is Christmas.
The whole eating and shopping experience was so luxurious. I felt so re-charged and productive.
Thank you Lord for the simple things in life like eating a chicken salad sandwich with friends and buying cheap clothes at Kohl's.
