I Wasn't Expecting That

Monday I needed to finish up my Christmas shopping and that meant a trip to the mall...(insert dramatic music here).  Husband and I figured that if I went early on a Monday morning that there would not be a crowd or much traffic.  WRONG!!!  I was so shocked as I made my way through the traffic and then into the mall.  Where did all these people come from?  Arent' they supposed to be at work?, our kids aren't even out of school yet.
Well, to my surprise, the salespeople that I ran into were so nice!  Everyone was very helpful and cheerful and I can't tell you how many compliments I received about my coat!
It turned out to be a lovely morning and I am pretty sure I am almost finished with my shopping.  I think.

 My lovely pink coat, maybe that's why people were being so nice to me today!




I got that fab fur scarf as a Christmas gift and couldn't wait to wear it!





You can't tell in the pictures but my earrings have a hot pink color on them.  I felt like all this brown needed a pop!

Here's hoping you have a lovely shopping experience this week as well!
