Beautiful Day

I woke up this morning with a smile on my face. I can’t remember the last time that happened.

Sweetie Boy had his performance last night at the church. To say he was precious would be a gross understatement. He was adorable and so funny. I can’t wait to get the DVD and watch it. They did a week in review type video too for the kiddos and my baby boy was on there. He was so cute!

His dad came, as well as Best Good Friend and Skater Daughter. We had a good time watching the little performance. Afterward, he went home with dad and I headed to North Dallas to see The Man. I had some seriously good martinis.

I got lots of birthday shopping for my boy done, too. His birthday isn’t until the end of August but I want to be prepared. PLUS, Target had the Jack Sparrow treasure chest he wants on sale. I picked up a few more Ben 10 toys for him, as well. Yesterday in the mail, I got a $25 reward certificate for B&N so I went and spent every dime. Got the baby more Magic Tree House books and a new A-Z Mysteries book for him. Some of the Magic Tree House books are for now, and some are for later. He’s definitely reading on a 3rd grade level now which is highly impressive. Especially since he’s only going into the 1st grade.

That’s my boy! 🙂

Then I headed over to the mall.

Now. I’ve coveted Coach bags for years. But I’ve never bought one and any man I’ve ever been with has balked as the pricetag of them. They are beautiful bags, though, and I know if I ever got one I’d carry it for life.

Best Good Friend recently made her first purchase. Which made me insanely jealous. hehe I started to have the wants real bad for one. And what made it worse is the fact I have all this buying power with credit I don’t use. I’m trying to be thrifty, you see.

However, my wants got the best of me today. I went into the Coach store with a specific bag in mind. It was the Signature Scarf print but it was so small I knew I couldn’t have that for every day use. The gals in the store were GREAT, too. Very helpful, friendly, and just lovely to deal with. 

Needless to say, I made my very first Coach purchase today. And walked out of there a little less richer. But that’s okay. This Coach bag will be with me for years. And in case you’re wondering what it looks like… it’s the Chelsea Patchwork Large Hobo, Style #10974. It’s suede and smells like leather and MY GAW I love it. LOVE IT! It’s a beautiful bag. And yes, I hugged it and sniffed it and petted it.

I guess you could say I’m officially a snob now. hehe!

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
