Actually it was quite an easy time. We pulled into the tenth parking space from the door to Nordstroms at 9:30, and discovered they open early for your shopping pleasure. I knew it was my best bet for the baby blue cashmere sweater I had in mind, so I sent Mark off to wander and got the first errand done!
Next up was Williams of Sonoma where I picked up the gold standard of cookie sheets. I so want one for myself, but this one is a gift. A box of chocolate chip cookie mix rounds out that gift.
Then off to the Hallmark store for a recordable book. Do you know them? You get to read in your own voice a story to your precious one. Really nice for grandparents who live too far away for a nighttime story.
And finally, Sephora. Now I'm not really a make up queen of any kind so I've not been to Sephora. I wear and have for years, some MAC blush, a little mascara, if it's a party I may put on some sparkly eye shadow and always rebel lipstick, but that's pretty much it. But I've become obsessed with the sparkle nails! And I wanted nail polish to match these!
And I think I succeeded. I can hardly wait to try it, but my current dark smoky grey with silver sparkles still looks good, so I'm trying to be patient.
Oh, the give away you ask? I decided you would need some seed beads, some pretty pinks and golds for today...
Reading the comments has been great fun. Although I don't require your contact information, you will want to check back on the 15th to see if you are the winner at which point I will ask you to contact me. I would think you would be highly motivated, but should you forget, I will give the winner one week to be in touch. If you do not contact me in that time I will pull the name of a runner up, so do check back....Three more days of beady stuff and on Thursday morning I will announce the winner!
