Beth and I did a little shopping the other day. She was so excited about all the back-to-school stuff and wanted to go buy some things.

This was the same day we bought her kitchen cabinets. After we had taken them downstairs and set everything up, I was exhausted and ready to just crash for a while. But she was insistent about getting her school supplies.

So we headed to Fred Meyer since they have just about everything and as we're walking to the back-to-school section I asked her what she wanted to buy. "Jus' my markers." Seriously? You don't want a backpack and pens and... "No." We find the aisle with the markers and of course they don't have the colors she likes. She's found some markers that are a different shade from the regulars. Instead if red, blue, green, they are maroon, teal and forest. But many stores don't carry them.

We walked around for a while and she found this bathrobe. She's always liked Spongebob! And it was SO soft! But she decided not to buy it because she already has a purple robe at home.

After buying some groceries we stopped by Bartell's so she could get her markers but I told her I'd wait in the car. She sure loves that store!

You can tell by the look on her face that she caught me taking her picture! That's usually when I hear, "Mothera!"

Do you like to shop? What's your favorite store?

In search of the perfect markers! I remember those days! Good for Beth - no impulse shopping for her. Spongebob will have to wait. Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Cindy!

So cute! I remember never being able to find colored pencils for my kids! You can tell how long it's been since I have been school shopping. My youngest is 35! I don't love to shop, I go when necessary, and that'it! I really love, TJ Maxx, weird I know, but they just have just a great variety of stuff!

I'm glad, Beth found what she needed, she's a girl after my own heart, get in and get out!!

Hi Cindy, Beth has more self control than me - that Sponge Bob robe would have been in my cart. Impulse shopping is the worst. I don't like bricks and mortar shopping so much but online shopping is a terrible vice. Glad Beth got the markers she was looking for!

I love that she calls you mothera. :)Glad she found some markers.
Mostly I like to shop in stores that aren't in a mall. I like thrift stores and Homegoods and Marshall's and T.J. Max. Fred Meyer and Costco are the bigger stores I go to. Mostly I like a good deal!
