Mini Sanity Break




What a day so far! I had a babysitter come today so that I could have a little "me" time. I had NO plans. It was a great time had by me. This was my day so far... I drove to New Caanan and went shopping on Elm Street. It's an adorable street with boutiques, book stores, stationary stores, shoe stores, antiques...you get the drift. I lucked out at JCrew and purchased a few lovlies. Then I grabbed an iced french vanilla coffee and browsed in the bookstore for 45 minutes...yes, I said 45 minutes...ahhh bliss! I haven't done that in ages. I bought two copies of Gift From The Sea because I can't find both of my copies...they must still be packed in boxes somewhere. I also bought a beach-read called Barefoot. (I'll let you know how it is-probably next January when I finish it) Then I grabbed some sushi for lunch. I drove back to Darien and hit the Darien Sports Shop, just browsed. Then I popped in a designer consignment shop and scored a pair of James Jeans. Okay, they retail for an average of $186.00 and I nabbed them for....wait for it.....$36.00. OH SNAP! I do have to have them taken in a pinch but it's worth it! Now I'm back with my peanut who's napping and I can't wait for him to get up so we can play. Then we are going to the gym later on where he will play with his buddies in the kiddie area. This may sound like a super boring day to many but let me tell you, it's been such a lax and lovely day for me. What a treat! Every now and then you just need some 'nuthin to do time!

have you experienced the amazing sale Darien Sport Shop does twice a year? The elimiate all their seasonal stock by eventually marking it down to 80% off. They should be having one by the end of summer...it's definitely worth the trip.

Sounds like my kind of fabulous day! And I think you've mentioned that book before so I hope to get by B&N tomorrow and check it out! Thanks for the recommendation!
