Shopping!


I received one of these for Christmas from my boss ~ thanks Boss! A very generous gift card to Nordstrom. I'm not a Nordstrom shopper ~ I've been inside Nordstrom a few times - but I've never bought anything. I'm more of a Target, Kohls and thrift stores kind of person. But Mandy and I are going to Nordstrom tomorrow ~ she has a gift card too!


I could do what I usually end up doing ~ spending my gift cards on babies. This little strawberry swimsuit is so sweet ~ but the price is pretty sweet too! This budget minded gramma just couldn't do it.




I'm not a jewelry person ~ but I do enjoy an occasional quirky necklace. This one is fun, but again there's that price tag to reckon with.




I could use a new tote bag and this one is nice and colorful. It also has a vinyl coating so it would be pretty sturdy too! But again ~ I couldn't do it ~ the price is so out of the norm for me. I could buy 12 tote bags at Target for the cost of this one.



I was excited to discover Nordstrom carries a large assortment of bath & body products. I bet I can find some things to spend my gift card on in this department. Their prices are a little more familiar to me. Well some of them are anyway.




I know a lot of people shop at Nordstrom ~ some of my friends have found some really good bargains there. I guess that's what I'm hoping for ~ some really good bargains. I'm excited about our shopping trip ~ it will be fun to see what kind of treasures we can find! Maybe there will be a lot of clearance items in the baby department!!

Have a wonderful time on your shopping trip. I too am always trying to find a bargin and find it hard to pay the prices a lot of these places are asking for. I usually end up talking myself out of things and then try to figure out if I can make them.

Happy Valentine's Day,

Nordstroms used to have kind of a moderate priced department, wonder if they still do. We just our first Nordies in Pittsburgh. Haven't bought anything there but did have lunch in their wonderful Cafe. You could use your card for a nice meal perhaps.
