conspicuous consumerism.

You probably wouldn't be able to tell by the shopping bags here, but really, I'm not usually a big fan of the shopping mall. But today, yes...I had fun. No, I won't tell you what's inside the bags because that'll incriminate me to the husband. He reads my blog. As if he'll miraculously be blind to the little clutch hanging from my wrist. But I'm sure that I could have shopped at Old Navy or Target and gotten whatever is in them for a fraction. If I chose to forgo the almighty Brand Name. All Hail the Mighty Brand Name. She is Queen and deserves your righteous respect. Bow before her and submit your monies to her. In return, I'll make the husband something yummy with whatever is inside of that William Sonoma bag and maybe give him what's inside that Apple bag.

Something must be in the air because I just had a shopping spree too! Yay for us! You chose much more carefully and wisely than I, however, my friend. I went straight for the complete fashion ensemble with sunglasses and shoes to match and totally forgot a gift for hubby . . . oops. Anyhoo, I have the nerve to say that I chalked this one up for charity. Bloomingdale's had a special shopping day to benefit a domestic abuse charity. I'm still giddy with excitement. :)
