Shopping With My Daughter

It's shopping showtime! Sunday Shopping Secrets is hosted by Anita at You need to go to Anita's blog and see all the neat things she bought this week and then check out everyone else purchases.
I just visited my daughter, Tina the last 3 days and she came home early from work one evening so we can go shopping. She said shopping with me and her older sister, Rochelle, is the one thing she misses the most since she and her husband moved. She said she and her husband will only go to the store if they need to buy something in particular. And used to be, the 3 of us would go to stores even if we had no intentions of buying anything. Of course, we always ended up buying something that mommy had to pay, lol!.
Anyway, we did not shop a lot because it was getting late and we had baby Brendan with us. But I bought a few items and here they are. The slides (we call them step ins in the Philippines) were bought from Ross

I also bought the bunny topiaries from Ross. I thought they were really cheap ($2.99 each) and I think they will look good by our fountain, don't you think so?

I bought these 2 long narrow pillows at Old Time Pottery. They were only $1.99 each. I think they will be perfect for my neck when I am reading.

and this is on the other side of them.

I bought the kitty pitcher from Ross. I plan to give it to my stepdaughter and her groom with their wedding present. They have and like Siamese cats. We're giving them an i bond. I will print a certificate, roll it up and put it in the pitcher, or maybe just a check.

Thanks again for visiting. I hope you enjoyed seeing my purchases for this week. Thanks to Anita for hosting this fun meme.

Christine, I am so glad you two had a change to get away and do a little shopping and visiting. That is always so much fun. I love the new shoes, perfect for this summer. Your pillows are just gorgeous. Such pretty colors. The rabbits will look fabulous on your pretty patio. They are so different and unique. The pitcher is so sweet and just the perfect thing for kitty lovers. I know they will really enjoy it. I hope you have a great time visiting and enjoying the wedding. Hugs, Marty

girl....My parents own a huge shoe store....and you have more shoes than my mother!!! I think you could rival the ladies dept in her store in numbers!!!!
I think the ones you got are cute though said...

Thanks for the virtual tour. I love all the little knickknacks. You have a very wonderful table arrangement and a very warm looking home.

Thanks for the Tampa sites. I will definitely visit your site again.

Hey Christine !
You did do a great job finding bargins....Love those sandals, just
the right time to wear them. I can't believe that you got those pillows for $1.99 - I would buy them even if I didn't like the fabric as you could always recover them - yours look great allready..
My oldest daughter is 18 and has moved out ...she loves to go shopping with mom still (yes I buy her stuff, but thats what moms are
for !)

Melissa Miller said...

You found such nice new Christine! Love those beautiful shoes.
The pillows are so cute.

Hope you Sunday has been wonderful.

Love what you found, Christine! Lots of neat shopping goodies and for good prices, and yes, I think the topiaries will be perfect!

Cute shoes (step ins) and pretty pillows, and I like the cute kitty pitcher.

Hope your wedding goes well. Sending you much love...
