Sometimes Momma needs a time out!
Ok, your probably thinking I got in trouble and maybe Greg sent me to a "time out". Ha! Actually, I sent myself on a time out, meaning I needed a "break". After church yesterday I told Greg I just wanted to get out and have some "momma time"...alone! Of course there is no place I'd rather be than with my hubby, baby and dog, but I was having one of those moments I just needed a little space. So I got myself together and headed to the mall....I was in sample heaven in Sephora, those gals are so nice, I swear they probably recognize me as the "Vera Wang" lady because I'm always coming in for samples of that perfume ever since I ran out of my own bottle. They also hooked me up with a sample of colonge for Greg, and some Bare Essentuals samples too, needless to say I left the store one happy lady. As I kept strolling through the mall I noticed a lonely sales lady in the "Merle Norman" make-up store, so being the chipper gal I am I headed in sorta pretending I was looking for new lipstick so she could feel like she had something to do. Anyhow, we struck up a great conversation and I ended up hanging out in there for quite a while, and the bonus is I found my new favorite lip gloss called "Wineberry", and guess what?? You go it....more samples! She just kept handing more to me, so I gladly accepted, spent a few more minutes chatting with her and then I was on my merry way. Before I left, I hit all my fave stores, Ann Taylor Loft , Forever 21, Yankee candle and the list goes on. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that before I got to the mall, I cruised by my favorite gourmet grocery store called AJ's Fine foods and got myself some yummy coffee complete with vanilla creamer, and since I have the "special mug" I got my big yummy coffee for a whole whopping 50 cents and all in all that what my whole outing cost me! The moral of the story is every momma needs a " time out" now and then to get out and recharge her batteries, have a little time to herself to get new perspective on things. So if your looking for a cheap way to have fun, grab your re-fillable mug for some java from your favorite coffee spot and get your sample shopping on sisters! Happy Day!
