All Alone in the Big City!!!

Last weekend I had planned to go shopping in Amarillo, but it ended up not working out so I postponed it until this weekend. So, today I got up early and headed out to the "big city" for some girl time...just me, myself, and I! I LOVE shopping alone and finding my way around by myself. I have a lot of time to think, browse, pray, contemplate, and all of the other good things you get to do when you don't have to worry about anyone else's schedule or patience.

So, my first stop was TAR-JSHAY, of course! One of my main missions was to find an outfit for a party we are going to in Uvalde this weekend. Here's what I found...

This is the dress...

I couldn't find a picture of the exact shoes I bought, but these are almost identical to fact I tried these on, too.

These are accessories. Again, I couldn't find a picture of the actual earrings I bought, but these are pretty close...I like mine better. I also bought this necklace which I's longer than it looks in the picture, probably about midway down my stomach.

I bought some cute shirts and a couple of pair of shorts and then headed for lunch at Zookini's. Nothing like a really good salad bar!

**ADDED** I can't believe I forgot to mention the mani and pedi I got, too. I have to say they weren't the best (or even very good for that matter) I've ever had, but when I got to the register and paid only $30 TOTAL, I figured I got what I paid for. Anyway, the nails are manicured and toes are painted, so that's all I really wanted anyway and the person was VERY nice, so it was relaxing...who am I kidding, they look WAY better than they did before, so regardless it's an improvement.

Then, I headed to Old Navy for a couple of always-in-need-of solid tees and of course I had to stop at MS Industries (Marble Slab) for some Rum ice cream!

I even made it to Barnes and Noble but I only used the bathroom!

I had a great phone conversation with my dear friend, Julia, whom I don't talk to enough and because I was distracted with that, I missed my turn off and didn't realize it until I saw the big Groom cross in front of me. I was still on I-40. No biggie, it just added a few minutes to my trip.

All in all, it was a really nice day spent with myself!

Now, I'm off to love on my nephews who have been here this weekend with their daddy. Dawn is taking a much needed and well deserved break at home by herself!
