A Quick Catch Up Chat

Hi there! I went to Kohl's this morning to pick up a couple of things for my trip to Panama. I tried on a few of my last years shorts last night and let's just say, I'm still not fitting into the summer attire AT ALL. I mean I can zip and button it all up, but it just isn't pretty. I have no idea why I'm telling you all this. Maybe it will make you feel better about yourself in some strange way. Anyway- Kohl's has The Best Sales EVER!!! I bought a sundress, a light khaki pair of shorts, a dark khaki skirt, a darling white zip up hoodie(in case in gets cool at night), a salmon colored tank and a hot pink cami. The grand total with tax was $34.00. Have I become a bargain shopper or what? A couple of the items were even 80% off. And just look at this beautiful bracelet my friend Tiff gave me last weekend. She got one for herself too, and it is our "Believing God" bracelets. At the moment, it sure beats the yarn one I made for myself. Thanks Tiff, I love it!
Oh, and this trench coat I bought for my celebration of renting my house was not on sale, but it is too cute! Way better looking on than in this picture. And now it is on sale at Kohls! I should have waited a week. It is so funny how much I appreciate things I once took for granted like a little shopping trip. I feel so blessed to have my home rented, and I am going to be very careful to keep living like it's not (financially that is).

I have to go finish home schooling now. Hopefully the next post will include some Panama pictures. Please pray for my children while I'm away, and for their grandparents who will be caring for them. Annie has a cold and a sore throat right now, and Ashley started feeling bad this morning too. I would love your prayers for a safe trip and a romantic time for me and Skip. Ooh La La, I can't wait!!!

Pretty, pretty, pretty. Love it all. You are going to have a blast. I will pray for sick children. We just got over the cold and crud over here. Hopefully, I will not get it before the big weekend of events.
I love the dress. I might have to go check that one out.

Love the clothes! I have that almost exact pink tank and I was bringing it. I have a green one too, so I'll bring that one instead. I'm SO excited! I will be praying for Annie to get well and that Ashley won't get it, plus that all our kids will have a great time while we are gone.

Susie~ Have a safe and bountiful trip.

What great bargains at my absolute favorite spot to shop!! How I love shopping at Kohl's . . . right up there with Target.

Anyway, I love the bracelet and trench coat, too. The bracelet is a far cry from the embroidery floss one I wore throughout my tenure of the Believing God study. It is lovely.

Looking forward to hearing about your time in Panama. I went there way back when I was 13. I'll be curious to see how much it's changed.

Linda said...

Oh yes Susie! Have a wonderful time. I'll be thinking of you and praying for you and the kids and Grandma and Grandpa.

Ruth said...

You got some great clothes at a great price! I hope you have the best time on your trip. Can't wait to see the pics!!

Hey, girl!

Sounds like you're in for a wonderful time. I pray your kids will be well and at peace in your absence, and that you and Skip have a glorious time.

BTW - Keith and I just returned from one week up in the mountains in North Carolina without our kids. It was fabulous!

How funny that we both had little vacations so close together.

Cute clothes! You go with your bargain self!!! Have fun in Panama!!! Can't wait to see all the pics! It was awesome seeing Skip at the 10th anniversary party! We couldn't stay long, but it felt like old times seeing him up on stage!
