A Day for the Senses

Today was a day to buy things for my senses...

I originally planned to do nothing...nada....zilch.....never leave my house.....clean out my DVR and watch DVDs that I've been putting off watching for some reason. However, when I woke up this morning, I just really didn't feel like staying home. I decided to make a 30 minute drive for some shopping. To Dallas you might ask? Well, that would be the norm and you guys know I'm so not normal :) I headed north to Sherman.

Ok, ok, so normally I wouldn't head to Sherman, but today there was a purpose for the trip north. They have an eye glasses store that I wanted to visit. They have one in Wichita Falls and I know this particular store to be very cheap compared to the other chains floating around. I planned to go to WF and get new glasses over Christmas, but a blizzard happened and it wasn't possible. I have put it off since, but for some reason, the mood struck me today to head north and get some new glasses. (Editor's Note: "For Some Reason" could have a little something to do with the fact that I've had my glasses since 2001 and haven't had the lenses changed even though my prescription has changed no less than 6 times, AND they were getting very fragile).

I got these cute little Coach ones...

They have blue flowers and a little sparkly action on the sides...

Y'all know that I really wanted pink flowers, but pink flowers were on the black frames, not the brown frames and the black frames were just TOO MUCH on my pale/ivory/white/ghost-like face. What do ya think (sorry it's blurry)?

So now I'm good on glasses until 2019!

While waiting the hour and a half to get my glasses made, I hit up several of the shops around the area, and got a couple of random things at TJ Maxx.

I got this cute metal water jug. I've wanted a metal one for a while, but most come with the screw off top and I wasn't sure that I would like that. This one has a spout on top...

Normally, I do NOT like scents. I'm very scent sensitive as I've mentioned before. But today the world may have stopped spinning on its axis because I found a couple of scented soaps that I thought were so heavenly that I couldn't pass them up...

I really wish that blogs were scratch and sniff so that you could get a whiff of this
lemon-y yumminess!

Then when I got home, I noticed that Spring had sprung in my kitchen window box...

The daffodil is the only one in bloom right now...

But the pink tulip is not far off...

I think the other bulbs are purple hyacinth and a yellow tulip, and hopefully they will bloom soon.

Then for the rest of the afternoon, while I sat on my couch watching the backlog on my DVR, I heard the constant noise of the epic battle between Good vs. Evil that was taking place in my back yard...

good v evil
Hope You're Having a Good Weekend!
