My mom and I prefer to do one thing when we're together: shop. A lot.
I don't know if it's an excuse to spend quality time together or that we share a passion for fashion (hey, that rhymes). But either way, it's what we do. Problem is, I need to be a little careful these days. One, the economy sucks, my investments (as measly as they are) are in the crapper, and now I have to consider the fact that I have a better half. There's no more going out and spending $800 on a handbag because now there is someone else who will know about it. I don't think Hubs would appreciate a quality handbag like I do. Even more importantly, we want to buy a house someday (preferably soon), when the economy gets better, and frankly, don't have enough money for a down payment at this juncture. (I've been looking for an excuse to use the word 'juncture' recently. There you go.)
So, in a nutshell, the woman who pushed me out from her womb is arriving into NYC tonight, and I need to prepare myself for 3 days of unfulfilled longing while we shop 'til we drop.
I'll keep you all posted as to how I do.
