Skoot is HOME! She arrived earlier than expected and was HAPPY WITH THERE HAVING BEEN NO traffic issues throughout her four-hour drive to Atlanta.
After hauling her bags to her room she approached me with her first I NEED…we were off to run errands …

she has a job tomorrow helping with a friend’s wedding set-up in the morning and serving and clean-up in the evening.

First Stop:  for a split-end trim and bangs cut

and straight to
looking for sweater tights…no luck…they had tights but no sweater tights.

Trekking down the Mall corridor, we also check out


unfortunately, their ad didn’t quite work … we didn’t find what we wanted…
so, trekking continues as we decide to go into

where we find ‘fingerless gloves’ for $5.60..(I can’t make them for that much…),
a pair of ‘heart’ earrings ($3.30)
and houndstooth tights (for a different outfit, $7)

But…we are STILL looking for the ‘sweater tights’…now to
and they had a wonderful selection…one pair really fit the bill but too pricey ($22)…
where we found some great tights, but they weren’t textured…
Next storefront we thought would be a good bet….
 we HAD to check out the ‘smells’ while there, since Hubs was NO WHERE around, we could spray, test and stink to high heaven if we desired…

Skoots wanted me to smell Lady Gaga’s new fragrance that ‘morphs’ while you wear it

FAME…The first ever black Eau de Parfum compounded by Lady Gaga… black like the soul of fame, but invisible once airborne. This luxurious holiday gift set includes:
  • Ultimate Masterpiece Eau de Parfum, 3.4 oz
  • Black Shower Gel, 6.7 oz
  • Temporary Tattoo
  • Rollerball, 0.34 oz
  • A $128 value only $84

A gift set that can be broken apart and spread throughout the friends…

Back on task the trek takes us to the ‘restroom’ next…’nuff said.

specifically, an orange-cranberry scone and two Caramel Brulée Lattes –

rich caramel sauces, espresso and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and shimmery caramel pieces.
 Rejuvenated, we relaunch our endeavor to purchase appropriate leg coverings….this time to

Finally find what we need…2 for $14…that’s better

…also found a black cowl to go with her black beret…score!…(I’ll be making her a couple of these in different variegated yarns for Christmas, but no time to make this one)
(I got a couple of plain beige and dark black tights for myself)

Before heading out the door to the car, a wedding gift was in order for the ‘newlyweds to be’…stopping at Belk’s always fares well for those type events…
and we were NOT disappointed…a Jim Shore ornament for their first Christmas tree is PERFECT!

What a day of shopping, fast walking and catching up on the latest college news.

I was exhausted, my credit card was too, and now home to make dinner.  Thank goodness I have leftovers in the fridge.

What did you do Friday afternoon and Friday evening?
