CRASH-less Girls Day

So the other day- I was off to town.... alone.
I was on a mission to buy a computer desk.

I had finally got fed up with our o-l-d computer desk- the beast-

a concotion of warped presswood my husband has had since his college-single years. (We thought it would eventually break in one of our 5 moves and have a good excuse to splurg on a new one.. but alas and alack... no... it is one of those dinosaurs that won't go down gently.)

Don't get me wrong- I completely try to comply with the pioneer motto
'Use it up-
Wear it Out-
Make it do---"

But sometimes instead of "do with out.." I like to substitute--- "We buy NEW!"

So anyway- I decided it was time-

and I had actually gotten a paycheck for and thought I would "invest back in my company"- by buying a place to sit and work...

so I got dressed to shoes... (so utter flybaby- which is my renew commitment on getting my house in order.)

but... in getting dressed to shoes-- reminded me of CRASH. (my friend who recently moved - and use to patrol my feet - putting me to shame whenever I stepped out of the house in my husbands footwear.)

If CRASH was around- I would have totally invited her along to make a day of it, but she's not available anymore and Martha is working now.. and Anjeny still has a little one home and that would be unnecessary torture to her daugher to make her drive on an extra 2 hour trip to town... so I was on my own.

I found a cute functional, desk at Office Max and on my way home remembered I needed to stop at a drug store.

I pulled into Walgreens and thought I would quickly get in and out. But once I was in... I realized... I have never had to leasure of strolling the eisles of Walgreens.

They should market this store as " ANy girls best friend"! They have everything you would ever need sister!

From grocery items to ample beauty supplies and clothing... it's like a good ol "Piggly Wiggly" I use to frequent while on my mission!

And then I saw THIS!--------->

And KNEW I had to run out to my car and document my girls day for CRASH. She TOTALLY needs this to fit in her new surroundings!

Satisfied with all my treasures I made my way out the store and low and behold... what did I see?? None other than Jamba Juice stairing at me!

Just across the parking lot...

I knew that CRASH might not be with me physically--- but I could still enjoy a good girls day.

So here's to you CRASH! Bottoms uP!
( And yes-- I know NOT the most flattering picture.)

How funny that I just did a silicone implants joke yesterday and I hadn't even read this yet!

HIGH FIVE for being on the same wavelength. I felt like I was there. I love that you bought me bumpies. hahahahahahahhahahahahahahahah

Oh girl, you ROCK hard.

And that photo of you slurping a Jamba Juice made my day. That is one cute photo. SIGH! I've been to that Jamba Juice and Walgreens so many times.
