My pal Ashley joined the Peace Corp. She only has a couple more days in Minnesota, and then she's off to Africa for nearly 2 years (!!!). I'm so very proud (and a little envious) of her and her bravery. She had a bunch of girls over Friday night to go through her things - clothes, shoes, accessories, cleaning supplies, ect. There was some great stuff in my size which I gladly took off her hands. It's a little torturous to have to wait out the 30 for 30 before I wear them, but I will endure.
Then Old Man Winter dropped a doozy on us. We woke up Saturday morning to lots and lots of snow. It was the perfect day to hit up the MOA (Mall of America). Steve had some Disney Dollars to spend at the Disney Store, so we got a good head start on Christmas shopping for our little nieces. Then I exchanged these boots at DSW for a pair that felt more 'me'. It was an even exchange, so no money spent. And again, I won't be wearing them until 30 for 30 is over.
After MOA, we went mattress shopping at Dock 86. We bought a heavenly pillow top mattress and top-of-the-line pillows. After sleeping the way we have for the last 5 years, sleeping on high-quality is going to take some getting used to, but our bodies will thank us in the long run.
