|These Juicy Couture Princess Stud earrings are so cute--|
the stones are set in little golden crowns. But I resisted, and I'm proud.
Tired now. Gave her a set amount of cash--after she made a list and wrote cost estimate next to each item, from high-waisted shorts to sweatpants. Did not follow her through hours of teen stores; branched out on my own. Got something nice for H. @ Bloomingdale's, and something not too pricey for me. Also browsed in Godiva, Rockport, Victoria's Secret, Lord & Taylor. But using plastic is a slippery slope; I almost succumbed to these really cute Juicy Couture pink rhinestone heart post earrings [above] in L&T, $48 plus tax. Caught myself on slippery slope and climbed back up. Too much time in a mall can be dangerous, and we were there nearly five hours. Fig has amazing retail endurance, but a good eye for style bargains, too.
And, I'm taking care of Patsy's family's lizard, Ziggy, and our friend Eric's son's two lizards, Fred and Jack, who are @ Patsy's. Went and did night duty, carefully changing water and gingerly feeding live worms and torn lettuce. Figgy, an animal lover like her dad and grandfather, popped over to help me.
- Nothin, really--except did buy a box of 20 Myoplex Lite Shake Mix Packets in Vanilla Cream flavor @ GNC. Patsy made me a PB shake once to show me how delicious it was--use 1.5 cups skim milk, 2 T crunchy peanut butter, 7 ice cubes and 1 packet shake mix. "It tastes like a peanut butter milkshake," Patsy says. I am having one for breakfast in the A.M.
- Reined in my spending.
- Did not succumb to Cinnabon or Wetzel's Pretzels--soft, doughy, warm, sugary things from the oven. Did succumb to Godiva Mint Chocolate Chip Shake, which was icy and slushy, and which I threw out after a few sips. Big waste of $6. I should have brought it back for a refund. Figgy said I shouldn't, but I know I should have.
