Short post tonight, mainly because the tail end of my week has been pretty calm. Mostly just business as usual and then Pearl and I went to the dog park to “get out her ya ya’s” as someone said while we were there. I have to admit she has a few of those. To be honest, I might too.
After that, I met my roommate in Bellevue Square for dinner and drinks. We had to loosen up a bit before we went shopping, of course! While we were there, we were trying to come up with names of animals that start with the letter “N.” We thought for a while and couldn’t think any exciting ones, the bartender thought of “newt” and the someone else thought of “nutria.” the winner had to be this one guy there who thought of “nilgai.” Apparently, that is a type of antelope in Africa? This is what it looks like:
Let’s get to the point, IT IS THE HALF YEARLY SALE AT NORDSTROM! Just in case you missed it, it is the half yearly sale at Nordstrom! Women’s and children’s are on sale right now! We had to make an appearance and see what we could find. I was on the hunt for some new tops for work. It seems that I have accumulated an awful lot of skirts but have a very limited number of tops to choose from. Every morning I would wake up and look in my closet and feel like when I used to play with my Barbie as a child and she never had the right clothes either. Sigh.
The sale is amazing. I found more than enough blouses and sweaters and cardigans to last me. I tried everything on and then had to make those difficult dressing room decisions about what comes home and what stays. There was a dress I left behind that I loved but wasn’t quite the look I am trying to create for myself. But, there were many more things that I saw that I take home! And for an amazing deal. It was definitely a successful shopping night. I know my Barbie would be jealous of my wardrobe options now. We didn’t even have the chance to look at shoes… Guess we’ll have to go back tomorrow after we attend the Holiday Bazaar at the Bellevue Club!
The holidays are just getting started but I am already thinking about what I want to wear to all those pre-holiday parties, on the holiday parties, post holiday parties and of course New Years Eve parties. You never know, I might even have a date to go with this year… wink wink 🙂
What event are you looking forward to this holiday season?
