Forced to pick out a Coach purse & free entertainment
Happy Memorial Day friends! Thank you to those who served, continue to serve and those who gave all for our freedom. The bravery and love you show to our country is nothing short of incredible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. <3
The other day I told Siri to find an outlet mall. To my surprise she found one in Livermore that I hadn’t heard of before. For the record, that chick get’s me lost and the wrong information all the time. Even in Cupertino-where she was created. I know.
Mike heard about it, so we did a little road trip to the east bay to check out the Livermore Premium Outlets.
I didn’t realize it’s practically brand new. It was so beautiful and to my surprise there were a lot of higher end stores with actual outlet prices. So basically stores I only window shop at like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman because I’m cheap.
There were lines outside stores like Kate Spade & Prada with security guards. It was crazy. Clearly the recession hasn’t affected the bay area.
Mike surprised me with a trip to the Coach store. I tried to talk him out of it, but he forced me to pick something out. I even tried talking him out of it while waiting in line at the register. I love that boy.
I went with a smaller size and absolutely love it!
A little closer…
Wow, it’s pretty impressive. I’m pretty sure Mike wanted one of everything.
On our way home we decided to check out downtown Pleasanton just for the fun of it. They were having an antique faire so we walked around for a bit. The weather was perfect so it was nice to be outside enjoying it. We’re expecting rain today, talk about random.
One thing I love about the bay area, is the character these towns have. Since Mike refuses to grow up, he has to touch everything. Just another reason why we get along so well.
We came home and Mike fired up the BBQ. He grilled a couple cheddar & bacon burger patties from Whole Foods while we watched the Shark’s game. I am a big hockey fan.
I also turned on the police scanner. It’s my free entertainment. Turns out there was a pressure cooker bomb scare a couple miles away from us. It took the PD & bomb squad over 3 hours to figure out it was nothing. So fun to listen to.
Are you into name brands or high end stuff?
It depends, I love my Nike & Lululemon gear but I’m not typically into name brands. I’ve come to realize the older I get, the more quality means to me. I’ll still search out a deal.
What is your cheap or free entertainment?
Besides the scanner, making fun of Mike, laughing at Bam & people watching. I’m a gem.
