Shop till you drop, baby.

If you are considering re-locating any time soon, might I suggest the Dayton area? Yeah, it may seem as though it is one of the dullest and least cultured places at first glance, but then you realize you are a mere 40 minutes from THE BEST shopping mecca on the planet. The Jeffersonville Prime Outlets are awesome! In spite of the temperature outside (the high today is suppose to reach 28, I think) I would risk frost bite any day to get the bargains I got.
Steve kept the kids and I got myself 4 hours of uninterrupted Christmas shopping (aren't
'ya jealous.) And I now have all of my gifts bought except a few toys for the kiddos in my life. I've often looked at people at the malls w/ bags and bags of stuff and wonder how in the world (or why in the world) they have gone bonkers. Well, today when the prices were right and the time was all mine (no emergency runs to the potty, no tantrums in the aisles, no husband looking at his watch) I became that woman who runs back to the car 4 times b/c she can't carry it all. And just pissing off all the people who are looking for a place to park b/c they think I'm leaving. Glorious. So, if you've still got shopping to do, might I suggest a run to the Outlets... you'll be glad you did.

Hi Elizabeth, you are so beautiful, and your kids are so sweet. I am a old friend and it is so good to see your face. Well, this is Paula Charles and I have been emailing your mom and she told me your blog. I didn't even have a goggle account so I left this long message all ready and now I have to start over. Anyway God Bless you and we are praying for you and the new baby coming. Let us know when it happens. We will be in Dayton in 2009, don't knowt he dates yet, waiting on pastor to tell us, you know how that is. We love you and can't wait to see you.
Bye Paula
