I'm Growing Up

Yesterday I did something unusual (for me).

I am not an alone person. I don't freak out if left to my own devices, but I definitely prefer the company of others, especially if I'm going out to do something. Errands are so much more fun when you have a friend/sister/fiance with you.

BUT--yesterday after I dropped Katy off at orchestra, I did something entirely out of character. I went shopping. At the mall. Alone. For TWO HOURS! I don't know what came over me, but I LIKED IT. I could go in any store I wanted. I didn't have to wait for other people to try things on. I could take as long as I wanted without feeling pressure to move on. I didn't buy anything just because there was someone with me saying "Ooo you HAVE to buy that, it looks so good on you". It was great! And I DID buy stuff. I bought some attractive AE jeans, and a XXI hoodie. And I found the most adorable AE shirt in the world, which I can't wear yet because I'm going to save it for my wedding dinner (or heck, maybe even engagement pictures, if I can find the perfect skirt to go with it) and I want it to still be special. The color (the perfect shade of green) is exactly what I want my wedding to be all about!

Does anyone else feel exceedingly cool when carrying around shopping bags from TWO different stores?

I can't tell you how much I love shopping by myself. With other people, you have to wait or go into stores you would never normally go into. I think it's so annoying. I can only ever shop with my sister. Other than that, I got so annoyed that I claim I'll never do it again.
