The shopping Trip Results

I could really make this short and sweet. This about sums up our day on Friday:





In case you're wondering- that is crying- but crying preceeded by laughter. The kind of laughter that hurts because you're laughing so hard!
A LOT of that happened all day long on Friday and into the night. We probably laughed off a good 10 pds. It's a good thing because this is another picture that sums up our day:



Yup- empty plates. Between the delicious lunch at Camilles and then supper and dessert at the Olive Garden those 10 pds we laughed off were right back on!!

Here are the results of our shopping ALL day long:

We started at 8:30 a.m. and got back to the hotel around 7:30 p.m.----11 hrs of shopping!!!! We had great weather this year- that was wonderful.
I am done except for 1 gift I need yet!! It feels good to be done.
We have SO much fun. I'm looking forward to next year's trip already!
And a bonus- everything went well at home too!!

Well we can't blame the world economic problems on you girls. You are doing your part to jump start the economy for sure.

Glad you had such a productive day.

Love that shot of Terri! That is so typical. I have to get a few more than one, but I'm trying to accomplish some tomorrow.
