It may not be cookies, but it’s just as sweet

You all know the most wonderful time of the year isn’t when the big fat man in a red suit tries to squeeze his hiney down your chimney.  In fact it is actually the time when the little angels in green and brown stand at the door of every supermarket in town and whore their delectible confections.  Yep, girl scout cookie time.  I have blogged about it before.

Well… next to girl scout cookie time the most wonderful time of the year is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  It still amazes me that there are Nordstrom stores outside of Washington State, but I suppose you all can partake of our little tradition too.  You know the original Nordstrom’s is in Seattle right?

Anyway, I get an email from a friend yesterday asking if I wanted to have lunch and then do a little shopping at the sale.  Hmm… lunch with I and shopping.  The only thing better would be coffee afterward, but she had a hair appointment.  Of course I said yes!  I needed to get out of the house.

Since I am trying to pay to travel back to Russia I don’t really have a whole ton of money.  But… I did have a little money squirreled away from my birthday.  So there was this rack with the most beautiful little jean jackets.  It has been eons since I have owned a jean jacket.  I convinces me to try one on.  It is gorgeous!  Better yet… only $32.00!  Woo Hoo!  So it may not be cookies, but it really is just as sweet.

Sorry honey.
