Today we ripped this meme off a blogger known as Barbara at Stray Thoughts. She is our first two-time victim! She explains that she saw the meme at Susanne’s yesterday AND that Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee had created The Random Dozen Meme that looked like a lot of fun.” It’s unusual that we stumbled upon the birth of a meme. Barbara, in comments, wants Linda to get full credit! So we have no need to trace it back further, although you know we wouldn’t anyway! Tracing back our theft’s thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!

We went to the grocery store to pick up a “few” items and I felt like SCREAMING. I’m usually in the grocery store longer than the hour that we had been in there, but for some reason I just wanted to get out of that store and get home. Maybe my mood had something to do with me not getting enough sleep, but it was there and the desire to get this shopping trip done in record time was crucial.

I think my lack of sleep is effecting my mood. Will go to bed sooner tonight.

It was Spring Break last week and for some unknown reason, I thought it would be great to close my eyes and hand over my bank card. No, really I wouldn’t just hand over my card blindly, but I did spend quite a good amount of money taking care of vehicle maintenance and hair maintenance. And when it’s all said and done, the vehicle’s safe and my hair looks FANTABULOUS.

Thanks Forever 21

I haven’t been shopping in forever, but that’s about to change. While surfing the internet trying to buy Christmas gifts last month, I found my new FAVORITE store, Forever21. The prices are right and the clothes are chic and really cute. The selections offered are just what I needed to get me back in the habit of my favorite pasttime, shopping. I bought this baaad red peacoat and a white and black cowl neck belted dress and I am soooooo excited to wear them and show off. Forever21 is bringing the thrill and fun back to shopping.

I haven’t really been into Christmas shopping and gift giving in a couple of years now. But, for some unknown reason, I’m baaaaaaaack. That is too funny. I have done so much shopping since Black Friday, that I am now freaking out when I’m online. It’s a struggle to stay off websites buying and looking through stuff in hopes of finding that one “great” sale price. For this reason and for my lack of restraint, I’m now rushing Christmas to get here. I know that this is just me getting a thrill and getting in the spirit, but it’s costing me money, and lots of it. I did, however, get something I really wanted, so I’m guessing all is not lost. But, Christmas, come and come quickly.

The Weekend Trip

This weekend the fam and I took a trip to Memphis. It was really fun and I truly enjoyed myself. We attended church at Breath of Life and because it was Women’s Day, the service was, IMO, extremely good and relatable.

Although I did not get the opportunity to go to a Mexican restaurant, I did get to go to my fav store, DollarTree. You see, while most people would choose to shop at a big box store or sommewhere extravagant, I’m into simple things. Put me in a Dollar Tree and I’m completely happy. I LOOOOVE me some Dollar Tree. I was not in the actual store long, but I picked up some great finds. Shopping is so relaxing.

 

After shopping, I was introduced to the best store bought pizza ever. My sister told me about Tony’s pizza and because I’m not into pizza that I’m required to bring home and cook, I was a little apprehensive. But let me tell you, that Tony’s Hamburger pizza was DELICIOUS. I have NEVER tasted a pizza so flavorful and just perfect.

 

Well, that was my weekend in a nutshell. Not a lot of hooplah, but I did get to see Key and that’s all I really needed.
