Yea for shopping.

There is something very therapeutic about shopping. I don't know many women who feel differently. For me, It makes me feel happy if I'm having a bad day. I don't know why.

I'm lucky though, that I don't have a "problem" with shopping. It's the thing that saves me! I frequently go through my clothes and throw things out. Clothes that are too small, too big, or that I haven't worn in ages.

It gets to the point where I open my closet and don't have much to choose from to wear. So, today, I went to my friendly neighborhood Walmart and bought a few new things. I don't spend tons, because I don't shop at Dillards, and I don't always look fancy, but I do have good taste.

I only had 2 pair of pants that fit, so I bought 3 more today. What a difference a few new outfits make. I love the new "Signature" Levis they sell now. Anyway, I am wearing a new, darling outfit, that fits! The secret to Walmart is, don't dry it in the dryer!

You do get what you pay for after all.

I think people glance over good ol' Walmart too quickly--they have great "hidden" jewels in them--They have cute/CHEAP zip hoodies and pants that look just as good (and fit better--at least for my long legs!) as Old Navy (and they wash just fine!)...They also have very cute sun-dresses...

Hidden jewels my friend...it's all about the hidden jewels in the most unlikely of places!

Hi Melissa. It's Miriam. I am finally starting ablog and want to add your blog address to my list. I have mine open for a day or two and then it will be private--I'm too paranoid to leave it out there for the world. I'll "invite" you--is that how it works??

You are right Yolanda! That's why I keep going back. That and the fact that it's the only place to go here in hickville!
