I love most anything Rachael Ashwell so I could hardly contain myself waiting for Target to open this week about a half hour from my home. Today I spent my afternoon shopping and my first stop was Target. I was actually disappointed though because the Rachael Ashwell line was only somewhat there, not at all like the State College store (an hour away) so I left disappointed. In State College the shabby chic line is evident even in the pet asile. About all I found in the Shabby Chic line at the new store were a few bedspreads and a shower curtain.... So I'm hoping that maybe since the store opened on Wednesday and I didn't get there till Friday that everyone else was waiting for the line also and they will be restocking... hmmmm. I did come home with a couple pairs of reading glasses that were in the dollar section! One can never have to many pairs of reading glasses. I also found a stuffed squirrel in the pet asile that I had to have. My Stewart sits and barks at squirrels every morning so he was pretty excited to get one of his very own! I also bought a bucket that is sort of oval and my mop will fit in it. So although I was disappointed about the lack of Rachael Ashwell stuff, I did find a few things that made me happy.

Last week I shopped at Kohl's (also new) and used the $10 gift card they sent me! I found a pair of shoes and I imagine the next time I need some retail therapy I'll go back and get the boots that I saw that were very comfortable. At my age if I wear a pair of shoes with a high heel all day usually by the next morning my hip hurts and I have trouble walking but I like the way boots make me feel, a bit taller and thinner and a bit less like a country hick! So, I imagine I'll have me a pair of Vera Wang boots next time I need some retail therapy!

I also decided to try out the new grocery store in the new shopping center. I had taken a virtual tour a week ago and was really excited to try that place out too.... Ok, so my critique on that is that it is so large that it was almost not enjoyable.... I did expect not to be able to find the stuff on my list since it is a new store but I didn't realize that since the store is so large if you miss an item on your list it is a pain to try to retrace your steps to find it again. They did have an adequate number of cash registers open to accomodate the shoppers and I didn't have to wait in line, but I decided that I might just stick with the Weis store that I am already familair with.

So that was my afternoon!
