Lisa's Day of Fun!

Do you ever feel like you need a day to yourself? Like, a day for shopping and perhaps a little pampering too? I certainly do. I had some Christmas money that was burning a hole in my pocket, so I planned a whole day and coined it "Lisa's Day of Fun." Remember "Joey and Janice's day of fun" from Friends? Lol! 

Y'all, I had the best day! I couldn't wait to get to Ross. You see, back in December, I saw some Michael Kors bags there. A man had about five of them in his cart and I assumed he was buying one for every female on his Christmas list. I also thought to myself that they must be a great price for him to be purchasing so many, but I was in a hurry and never even looked at them. Mistake. I've thought about that purse every single day since then. :) 

So, my main goal on Lisa's day of fun was to track down that purse and I hoped it was still reasonably priced. So off I went to Ross and lo and behold...I walked about five feet into the store and right in front of me was a display that said "designer handbags" and front and center was this...

Squeal!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes! Then I slowly turned over the price tag and it said...$69.99! What?! It regularly sells for $200, Ross had it originally for $99, and now it was reduced to only $69. Yes, please. :) 

I really like it too. It has lots of room for all my things and I love the red handles. 

Okay, so up next I was looking for some cute $5 tassle necklaces I saw on the Whoa Wait Walmart blog. Remember when I told y'all about that blog and IG page? It's how I found out about the necklaces. I walked into the store and again, just like it was meant to be, there they were, with plenty to choose from. 

I went with this one...

So cute and such a good price.

Then I stopped at a few more places...Joann's to get supplies to make my Valentine's Day Banner, Dollar Tree for some circus peanuts (yes, I HAD to have them - lol!) then to Starbucks to pick up a Valentine's day gift card. When my boys were little, I would fill their Valentine baskets with all kinds of treats, fun toys, etc. but now all they want are gift cards, cash, and candy, so that's what they get. I've gotten them these Russell Stover strawberry cream hearts every year since they were born, and will continue to do so. :) 

I did a little clothes shopping too and managed to find five outfits that I liked (and desperately needed) I love when I find multiple things in one trip like that! 

Then I got my haircut, which is always a nice experience. I got three inches cut off and my hair still comes to my shoulders. It was l-o-n-g. 

I think I ran a few more errands, then I came home to find this on the porch...

I love happy mail days! I'll share what was in the box soon. 

And to top things off, my son texted me to ask if we could get pizza for dinner. It just so happened that Papa Johns was offering half price pizza all day long because J.J. Watt won the 2015 NFL defensive player of the year award. And bonus, my son picked up the pizza for us, so I didn't have to go out again, AND I didn't have to cook dinner. Win-win! 

Pizza nights are my favorite. :) So, that was my day of fun in a nutshell. I think we all deserve to have days like this every now and then, don't you?



  1. Days like that are always fun. Especially when you score all the goodies you did!! Great bag, great price.

  2. Lisa, You made out like a bandit. I love the MK bag. That was a very good deal. Glad you stretched your money and got so much . Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  3. That sounds like an absolutely perfect day! Have a great weekend!

  4. My goodness girl, that sounds like a pretty perfect day! I love your purse!! The colors are perfect and neutral.

    Hey do you read Jolynne Shane's blog? Well before Christmas she said something about Kate Spade bags on their website being on sale. I clicked over and the leather purse I wanted was $99. I asked my husband to get it for me for Christmas. :) I never spend that much on purses so I'm feeling pretty spiffy. If you sign up for their emails (they send them everyday) you'll be told when they have a great sale. I just ignore them but some day when I'm ready for a new purse I'll be watching.

  5. Well, that sounds like the perfect day and your bargain purse is just gorgeous! Red handles...swoon! ;)

  6. That sounds like such a fun day! I am glad you had such a good time!

    1. Thank you, Kim! It was such a great day! Enjoy your Valentine's weekend!

  7. That sounds like the perfect "Me Day," Lisa! Love the purse. Back in early December, Hubby and I were watching TV on an especially exhausting Monday chemo, and he said "Would you like a Michael Kors purse for Christmas?" If my tired body could have managed it, I would have leapt for joy; and after almost choking on my beverage, I managed to croak out, "I would love that!" For some insane reason, he had gotten an email from MK with a "deal" on certain purses (I swear I had nothing to do with that). After I spent the next hour choosing the exact and perfect one for me, he pressed the order button! I was thrilled and Hubby was happy, too! I see a lot of designer bags that I like, but I could never bring myself to pay those prices. I'm so glad there are stores like Ross's that carry them and usually for reasonable prices.

    Super-cute necklace! I know you like shopping at World Market, so have you looked at their jewelry? They have some really cute things, and you know they always have a sale going. I picked up a few pieces before Christmas, and have enjoyed wearing them so much. One of the layered necklaces I got has a small cute!

    Hope you are having a great weekend & Happy Valentine's Day!

  8. How fun! The ideal way to spend the day and you scored some great goodies, too. You deserve it and I'm glad you had a wonderful time!

  9. Fun day and great finds! I'm glad you chose to have a "me" day ~ I think it's imperative for women to do that. Next time, include a mani/pedi! :)

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  10. What a great day! You gave me a double take, though, when you said you couldn't wait to get to Ross, right after you referred to "Friends". I never miss your blog posts. thanks

    1. Ha ha! That DID sound a little funny, didn't it? Gosh, I loved that show! I can't wait to see all of them together on that reunion show this month. :)

  11. Wow---great scores! I absolutely love the purse. We have a a new-to-me Ross nearby and I need to go. You really know how to get a bargain. The big thing that touched was getting the candy for your sons...a true tradition. You have a big heart.! So glad you had a great 'ME' day!


  12. That does sound like a great day! Nothing better than shopping for items you need (and want) and actually finding them too! I love Ross as well. I bought my Tommy Hilfiger purse from them last year. My husband worked yesterday so me and my son went to Dunkin Donuts and picked up breakfast there. That was our Valentines Day gift! ha!

  13. That is a perfectly fun day!! Love all your finds! Oh...and glad you got your purse!

  14. Yes, I love those kinds of days! In love with your Tassel necklace and that bag is a great find too!

  15. Perfect day for you.. Great finds and oh what fun.. Love your new bag.
