Taking off my practical hat

I had one of those days where its hard to get motivated. Now the weather did not help much, rain and snow again. I will be glad when this storm has passed on by. I ended up having a nice lunch with my friend Kate and her Mom. On my way home I took a detour to Barnes and Noble. Unfortunetly I did not hear the Danger Danger Kate Robertson Danger warning. So I came home with these.

















I will have some good reading material for next week when I have my hand surgery. I looked at these several times in the store and figured I had better get my copies before they are all gone.













Then I discovered I could get this lovely number for just 4.95 if I bought 2 things in the store. I already had the magazines so I now have a pretty tote to carry things in. The older I get the more I seem to want pretty things for those everyday events. In some ways its all about celebrating the little things. I am learning more an more to take off my practical hat and go for the fun stuff.

Here's to fun, Kate ! We can all use a little less practical, and a lot more fun if you ask me ! I actually purchased both of these this month too and am really enjoying savoring them.
Happy Hump Night !

Good for you, Kate! We all need some pretty things in our lives. I saw that bag last night when I was at B&N but I only bought one item so I didn't get it. I do have two other pretty bags from there though. I love using them. Cashiers always comment on them!
