shopping

those that know me know that I love shopping. For me it's the thrill of the hunt. Finding just what I want at a low low price is invigorating. And since Dell has been working the 6pm to 6am shift Henry and I have been spending a good bit of time at retail establishments to try and keep the apartment quiet enough for Dell to sleep. Our favorite place to go is the Pottery Barn outlet in San Marcos. it has many things in it's favor. 1) a 45 minute drive which gives dell and hour and a half quiet 2) Rugs. Henry loves the rug area at "Big Boy Pottery Barn"-- his name and I think a good one since there is a mix of pottery barn kids and regular pottery barn there. In the rugs Henry jumps and bounces, takes off his shoes, and unrolls or rolls rugs to his heart's content. 3)Pottery Barn items at amazing discounts. I sneer at Walmart prices "What, pay that for curtains?! i could get it cheaper at Pottery Barn." It's a fun feeling. My most recent trip had many triumphs-- most things I bought ended up being under 3 dollars, but perhaps the biggest triumph was these curtains for 8.99. http://www.potterybarn.com/products/p9490/index.cfm?pkey=csalrugsol
If any of you have your eye on a specific PB item let me know and I'll hunt for you. After all Dell has 3 more weeks of surgery and he needs some good days sleep.

I'm jealous! I wish I had a pottery barn outlet close to me! I may take you up on the offer to do some of my hunting sometime.

Anna! A flood of memories of our times at the outlets in Milwaukee just came to me! Ahhh. What good times. Sounds like better deals at that one down there.....I'm packin' my bags! :) I wish. Someday..soon...we'll do be doing it again together.
