Keepin' it Retro!

Took The Wubie shopping yesterday.  We didn't find anything he liked and the clothing selection was lacking in the young men's department. (Gads! We have to shop for him in young men's. ) But it was only an outlet store, so no worries.  We just needed an outing.

I did pick up a great Breast Cancer Awareness Month shirt.  I'll post a pic soon.  As we were checking out I spied these peeping back at me from across the aisle...

Rockin' the Cat Eyes

I'm not kidding it was like one of those movie scenes where the hero and the heroine spot each other from across a crowd and the music swells and the camera shot does some weird perspective trick where they seem to be coming toward you even though neither of them are moving and everything else fades in the background to a blurry gray and the other noises disappear.  THAT happened to me.

So, I walked floated over to them before the cashier could say, "I'll get them for you ma..." and *angels singing* picked them up from their perch.   THEN, be still my already smitten heart, I saw the temples! (Note: Glasses arms are called 'temples'.)  They had flowers on them! FLOWERS! (so very me) Pink and purple flowers! (also me) TROPICAL pink and purple flowers! (me, me and me) Tropical pink and purple flowers on a background of green ferns on the sides of WHITE CAT EYE SUNGLASSES!!!  I just...I...just...EEEEEEEEeeeeeeee!  I literally fangirled out over these things.  

But wait, that's not even the best part.  *Breathe* They. were. only. 6. dollars.  Youheardmeright. Six smackeroos.  Yes, please.   I'll take those. Snatch.

I plunked those retro bad girls down on the counter and lovely cashier lady said to me, "Aren't you glad it's Friday and you're getting an additional 15% discount on everything?"  She might have some something else after that, but I think I fainted. 

It was a good Friday. (The Wubie had lots of fun too.)

edit: Why do I always insist on putting up bare-faced pictures of myself online?  I swear I do wear makeup. I really do.  There is something very very wrong with me.

Hi Effie...

Thanks for going to my old blog and finding my new blog!! I had fun going that texture fix for my client. I love textures...and I have two textured rooms in my house. It warms up any room!

Glad you found those glasses. I was in Providence RI this summer and I thought that I lost my sunglasses. I bought another great pair - for $6 - and then I found what I thought I lost! So - it was a good thing I misplaced the glasses!

So glad to be in touch again!
