Please pat me on the back...

I went to Austin today to help a girlfriend shop for a dress for a wedding.

I was in Nordstrom's. I was touching Tory Birch shoes that I love. I was touching a Nanette Lapore dress that I adore. I tried on a DKNY dress that looked fabulous.

I only bought Easter dishtowels at Williams Sonoma. $16.


And in Cocoland, that is what we call making progress.

Pattin ya...when I was married before,I shopped like it was goin' out of style. If I even thought I liked it, I bought it. Then I figured out that I was shopping because that was what made me happy because I was not happy inside. I was simply filling a hole. Now that I'm happy, I can turn down those DKNY shoes without batting an eyelash! Makes you feel good doesn't it! Let's hear it for being responsible adults! Cheers!

You know I"m impressed-especially with the Tory Burch because a girl can always use a new pair of shoes...

Go you!!!!! That's how I feel when I am at the gourmet food store and I don't buy something just to buy it.
