I was able to go shopping with a few of my work friends last weekend.
There is a BIG outlet mall a few hours away.
So we loaded up our car and drove there, picking up another friend on the way.
The first stop was Bronners.
A HUGE store full of Christmas ornaments and related items.
I snapped this outside of Bronners.
I bought some Santa headbands but no one wanted to wear them...YET
This was cool but too dark.
Here we were inside the shop.
Isn't this winter scene so cute? I loved the light up trees.
There was a light up pond with Rudolph and Clarise on it too!!
I have a Jim Shore nativity but this white version is so pretty!
My daughter does not put up a Christmas tree or this peacock tree topper would have come home with me!
Next up was lunch at a famous place called Tonys.
Known for their gigantic portions of food.
None of us got the bacon but a nice man let me snap this pic of his club sandwich.
After we were all fed we were off for some serious shopping.
Here are the four of us wearing our Santa headbands. We had such a fun day shopping together!
This was the back of the car with all of our purchases!!!
Judith (in the red) was wanting to go so she borrowed my scarf and blindfolded our other friend to lead her out of the store!
A fun time was had by all. As we dropped off our one friend we all ended up back at our friend, Robin's house for a glass of wine and some chatter to talk about our trip.
I think we are going to make this an annual event.
