A day well spent.........

OK--so the day got started with a stupid traffic detour that routed us in a big circle, but THANK YOU VZ Navigator--you found us a way to FORT WAYNE, IN. Where a gal pal and I blew a big old chunk of change at the Vera Bradley Fall Outlet sale!!!!!! No, this is not us below, but look at the PILES on the tables!!!! And there were rows, upon rows, upon rows stacked high with all things Vera.





Yesterday seemed very mild, but still bustling--I guess all the crazy breaks out this weekend. When you pay, you are ushered into another part of the building where there are MORE ROWS of what I call cattle runs--I mean like 5 rows deep (you know those things you wait in line at Cedar Point?). I asked the nice lady--at ONE of the FORTY registers that were available- "WHY?" She said that those cattle runs will be FULL over the weekend with people waiting to check out--and they will wait in line outside the room to even get into the cattle runs.
Whilst I originally debated my need to take a full day of PTO off to go to this thing on the first day, I am SO glad I did and didn't wait to go until the weekend.
Gal Pal and I headed off north to the outlets in Fremont, IN. COACH OUTLET PEOPLE--however, since I had just blown a wad, I could not allow myself to buy another purse--GP gave in though, I'll just borrow her's someday--heehee.
Children's Place, Bath & Body, Bass, Polo and GAP were some of the other places that drained our wallets, but we had a great time. Until we realized what time it was--YIKES. Calls were made home--yes, yes, we're alive and on our way home--and on the road we got!! It was so hard to keep track of time since it was cloudy, dark, cold and gloomy all day--it just didn't seem like it was that late--but whatever--the men will survive--let them see how it is when they take off on their "Golf" trips.
We made it home and scarfed down some Chipotle (mmmmm.....Chipotle......insert Homer voice here) and we drug ourselves back home to the country. Such a fun day!!!
Next "Girls trip"? We're thinking Great Lakes Crossing and perhaps a stop at Sommerset!!!

How fun! I LOVE outlet shopping. But then you go somewhere like Somerset, and you're ruined. The sticker shock is even worse because you've gotten such great deals at the outlet mall.
