If there's one thing I love, it's the heavenly combination of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, a brownie, sweet cream ice cream, and hot fudge. But if there's another thing I love, it's shopping. And then if there's one other thing I love, it's finding an amazing deal.
I didn't get the ice cream yesterday, but I got everything else. I've been wanting to check out the Tanger outlets here, excited to finally have an outlet store less than two hours away from my house. And let me tell you, I was crazy impressed. I think it was the best outlet I've every been to. There were tons of stores I actually wanted to shop at, and then once inside the stores, they had a great selection and some real screaming deals. My favorite finds:
Angela's Price $71
Angela's Price $49
I also came away with a super cute khaki jacket and a summery smocked dress (apparently I'm four years old again) from Ann Taylor Loft, a pair of white shorts (living on the edge, there) from the Gap, and the one thing I'd actually gone in search of, some casual, every day wear jeans from Banana Republic. Plus I got to spend time with a great friend and an adorable baby. All in all, an excellent day!
Now, I'm less than a week away from my trip to New York. I'm so excited to be seeing my mom and sister for six glorious days, and hopefully meeting up with some dear friends while I'm there. The keys to the apartment we've reserved for our stay should be arriving today, and I've been spending the past couple of days trying to decide how on earth to pack for early May in New York without bringing everything from a parka to spaghetti straps.
Today I'm wrapping up my second to last class in my Masters program, and while I should be starting another one tomorrow, I'm currently enrolled in the wrong class and am having the worst time getting in touch with an adviser. My usual academic adviser is on vacation, and the contact that she left in her out of office reply isn't responding to my messages. So frustrating! I will be immensely glad when this is all over--hopefully in just eight more weeks!
