Mad shopping spree

A couple of weeks ago, I sent an SOS out to 3 of my girlfriends with an invitation to take a weekday off and go shopping in Fargo. Balancing schedules between 4 people and their families isn't always very easy, but we were able rather quickly settle on a date... Monday, December 14th.

The only thing for sure was we were leaving at 8:30 AM with no definite return time. The schedule was purposely kept loose... as in, we had NO IDEA when we would come back! This was simply to keep the stress-level low and not have to be rushing around. Again, not always an easy feat considering everyone has kids and husbands and life to consider.


The day was low stress... lots of laughs... lots of sharing... and LOTS of SHOPPING!

Stops included but were not limited to:
  • Barnes & Nobles
  • Michaels
  • Old Navy
  • Hobby Lobby
  • Lunch at Spitfire
  • Kohls
  • Office Max
  • JCPenney
  • Hallmark
  • Victoria's Secret
  • New York & Company
  • Once Upon A Child
  • Sam's Club
  • Supper at Johnny Carinos
The trunk of my car was packed F.U.L.L. with a few items being stashed in the backseat between passengers. Needless to say, we didn't get back to Fergus Falls until 9:00 PM. I was exhausted, yet rejuvenated in only the way you become from being with friends who make you feel good. I love my peeps!!
