Let's Go Shopping!

 Hello, dear friends.  Did you have a good weekend?  One of my favorite seasons in Texas is the Spring.  The weather has been positively delicious!  It motivates me to attach a few more steps to my walk every day.

The final countdown is on.  Six more days until the Mister and I are homeowners again.  We are doing our walk-through with our agent on Easter Sunday at 5PM.  I hope the owner leaves us some Peeps!  As I shared with you, we will be easing into the move because we are having some work done.  On the house, that is, not on me.  It will be a couple of weeks before the movers arrive.

And don't look for any new house tours soon.  Most of our furniture is not arriving until mid-Summer.  This will be a real trial of my patience.   

Yesterday, we escorted our #2 to the high school in Rockwall to receive her J&J one-shot wonder.   The state of Texas opened up the vaccines to all who are sixteen and older.  I will keep you posted as to whether she experienced any side effects.

Now, it's time to do some shopping.  I am not a shoe person.  If I find a pair of shoes that are comfortable, I will buy them in every shade available.  Purses are another thing entirely.  I can never get enough of them.  And I love to pick out a new one or two every Spring.


I used to have an Etienne Aigner purse similar to this one back in the '80s.
I thought that I was beyond cool.
Did anyone else have one?

Mark & Graham

And while we're strolling down memory lane, who carried one of these?

I bought a purse identical to this one a few years ago at Marshalls.  I was in an elevator in NYC when a beautifully-dressed woman asked me if I bought it at a market in France.  Naturally, I responded Mais Oui! and began the rest of my day with a little extra bounce in my step.

My #1 has this one.

A must for a passionate purse aficionado, such as myself.

Until next time...

The Friday Files

Hello, dear friends.  Did you have a good week?  We are taking our #2 girl out for a celebration lunch and shopping today.  Her last day at her old company was Wednesday, and she begins her next chapter with a new job in two weeks.

I am counting the minutes until we close on the house on the 5th.  As I mentioned, we are making the actual move on the 19th because we are having some work done at the house.
