Shopping Shopping Shopping

Abbey and I LOVE to shop. We do quite a bit of it together. Today we we're going to check out the sale at Soul Spun Yarn, but we quickly found out they're closed on Sundays. So, because I knew the weather was going to be crappy*, I suggested we drive to the outlet mall in Park City. We didn't go to a ton of stores, but we did get some screamin' deals. Sunglasses were buy one pair get the second half off from Fossil (be sure to ask Abbey about her movie star glasses with all the bling). Perfume from the Gap at a great price. And coats for everyone at INCREDIBLE prices at Columbia. You would not believe the prices on these coats (it's worth the trip to Park City for the prices on these coats, you really need to check them out).

Now, I know this is a terrible to say, but this shitty economy is making for some excellent shopping. The sales at stores these days are unbelievable and I can't seem to pass them up. So I guess I'm doing my part to help the economy!

*Abbey and I have some weird luck when we decide to go on mini road trips. Any time we want to leave the Salt Lake valley to go to the UC or Park City it's usually TERRIBLE weather. For some reason we always decide to head out at the worst possible time. You wouldn't believe the snow storms we've been caught in because we decided to go to a scrapbookin' store in Provo!

Thanks Betty

I just read on A Gluten-Free Guide that Betty Crocker will soon offer gluten-free cake and cookie mixes. It's refreshing to see larger companies making the leap to offer something for us gluten-haters. I used to be quite the baker, but when I became gluten-free I lost my knack for it. I know using mixes can be the cheaters way of baking, but when you need a quick cake it's a life saver. I'm looking forward to trying the mixes. Looks like they should be available in June. Thanks to General Mills and Betty Crocker!
