Like Pretty Woman but no Prostitutes

Hey, all! Happy Monday!

Well, I spent a lot of money...but I now have some really nice new clothes.

All well deserved by me. :)

What did I get?

Uh, no that's not me. But it IS the dress I bought. I wasn't looking for a dress but when I passed by a store with this in the window, I HAD to try it on.

I didn't know until I came home but it was one of those "As Seen in O, The Oprah Magazine" dresses.

(Apparently, I have good taste)

Got this dress too from Athleta. -->

But I also bought four pairs of pants (3 were jeans!), a few sweaters, a jean jacket, and a skirt. WHEW!

When I finally got out of the car with all my bags, my friends were laughing because they said I looked like Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman--minus the mean sales clerk. :)
(Although the waitress at our lunch spot wasn't exactly sunshine and sweetness) So I guess it was sort of like Pretty Woman. LOL

In other news, I went to my nephew's graduation on Friday. He is now a NJ State Trooper. It was a three hour ceremony/presentation and quite impressive.

I'm so proud of him!

And that was my week.

What did I miss?

You should have told the waitress, "Big mistake. Big. Huge! I have to go shopping now." LOL.

Your nephew looks so serious.

Would you believe I've never seen the movie Pretty Woman?

LOve that first dress. And what a handsome nephew you have. Did you wear the dress to the ceremony?

Sandra Orchard said...
