My Angel Mother


I have called my mom many things, but angel has never been one of them. This weekend she receives a new title--Angel Nana. She watched the girls. For 2 days.
One should never agree to watch my children without giving the matter some serious consideration and prayer. My mom kept them...willingly...without being bribed.

Todd and I went to San Antonio (about 3 hours away) for our anniversary--thanks to Nana. 45 minutes out of San Antonio is a mecca. The most ubber amazing outlet I've ever seen. When you drive in it feels like manna falling from heaven. It occurred to me that on the 2nd day of the creation of the world--you know, when the Lord seperated the light from the dark--He also created the outlet mall.

I walked into the PotteryBarn outlet and almost started a frenzy. Goodness everywhere I looked, and all the goodness was discounted AND on sale. I could see Todd staring at me while he was thinking, "OK, seriously just calm down and pace yourself." I took deep breaths and soaked it all into my system.

So, after my weekend, I think I'm going to have a pretty good week. I have partaken of manna. Really good, discounted manna. Some people find spiritual fulfillment at church, I found it at the outlet mall.

I'm sooooo jealous. What did you find? Anything good? Anything that would look good at my house?

I need details of what you bought so I can live vicariously through you!
