Since yesterday was our first Parent-Teacher Conferences of the year, today was our first half day (the four extra hours of work Thursday night means that many fewer hours today). I decided to take advantage of this gift and made a quick trip to the Outlet Mall in Pleasant Prairie.
Initially was a bit disappointed with my first stop, and I thought this whole shopping endeavor would be a bust. But, it turns out that I was a successful shopper, and I have some really great finds to prove it.. First, I searched the shoe store looking for shoes that comfortably fit my "new" feet. I found a cute pair, but the store didn't have my size in the color I preferred. No need to fret though; I was able to order the shoes, and they should arrive at my house in a few days. I'm very excited to get a present via UPS. It seems that Brian is the only one who typically gets deliveries.
I had new shoes, so I needed new clothes to wear with them. I found some of my favorite, most comfortable pants at The Gap, and loved them so much that I returned the pants I had purchased at another store some ten minutes earlier. I must have looked ridiculous returning to the store just after leaving it.
Aside from the moment of pants purchasing indecision, the afternoon of shopping was a hit, and I capped the day off with a visit to my friend Star's house. I hung out with her, our friend Amanda, and baby Emma.
I like how this weekend is progressing thus far. Tomorrow it's Badger football/Homecoming in Madison. Keep an eye out for me if you'll be in Mad-Town.
