Attention Mandy, Manda, Steph, and any other blogging friends that love deals:
Josh and I drove up the world's best outlets in Edenburgh, IN where we found some supremely good "dills" on top of the line fashions (read: there is a J. Crew Outlet!!!). I have to wear khakis to work beginning tomorrow, and we were on a mission to keep me hip in my rather lame uniform. I now have a lovely variety of khaki pants and skirts to accompany the store shirt I will be wearing daily for the next tree years. :) I figured since I was somewhat stuck in certain areas, I better find some accessories to keep it lively. You can see my favorite find in that department -- in this photo I am kissing the calf-hair leopard print belt that made the J. Crew employee jealous. "You are so lucky" she said "Someone must have returned that or something." YES! The best "still" of the day was Josh's Gap sweater for $3.50!! We were on our way out, when he was like "WHOA!" I was thinking Mandy or Manda would have bought them all and sold them on e-bay. :)
I had been praying that the laundry situation here would be a tolerable one, and that I would patiently endure washing our unmentionables in front of strangers (read: I miss you, little washer and dryer!). Mandy had suggested that maybe laundry would be better this way, because you do it all at once, sit down and read, and then you're done for a week. She was right! It was actually relaxing to chill in the tidy laundry room downstairs. The machines were all nice and new, and the room was nice and clean. The other people using the facility were friendly and gracious. This is fine. It is more than fine. It is even sort of fun. :)
The other night, my new friend "Grace's" boyfriend prayed for our dinner and asked the Lord to give us pleasure in little things. I love that profound little thought. Thank you Lord, for giving me pleasure in my suds and duds!
