Marathon shopping with my girls

Hardcore shopping

It’s almost a science

They’re skilled experts

Hit ten stores, maybe more,

Ending with dinner before the mall closes

Entry for Monkey Man’s Sunday 160:

  1. You’ll find me at the bench.


    • Hehe… Do you like sitting on the bench or would you rather be somewhere else? Because you don’t have to come if you don’t want to.


  2. lovely …

    Happy Sunday.


  3. Don’t enjoy shopping, well except if I’m in a music or book store.


    • I do enjoy shopping and especially in the company of my daughters. 🙂 Love music and book stores too!


  4. Sounds like a wonderful day with your daughters. Lovely! I have a son. We don’t go shopping! Hee hee. We go to movies and for walks. That’s good too.

    I enjoyed this post, Gayle. Thank you!

    Happy Sunday!


    • Yes, a couple weeks back we got together for another marathon. My sister joined us that day too. Walks and movies are great too–with a son.

      Thanks for enjoying! Now it’s Monday–Happy Monday, Jamie!


  5. Hi – this is Chloe from “Writing Days-Happy Days” with my new look blog. I’d love for you to pop over and take a quick look at “Blossom Dreams” if you can – possibly even subscribe 😉

    If I’m on your Blogroll, please can you change your link from Writing Days to Blossom Dreams?

    Many thanks and have a great day!!
    Chloe xx


  6. lovely poem. very uplifting 🙂 xx


  7. fabulously written gayle (i hate shopping but enjoyed your poem).


  8. I can’e remember the days when my kids wanted to be at the mall – now, it’s resale shops and unique venues, especially Powell’s Books, where you can buy any book on the plant and then some. But I do know I did it and didn’t complain (much!)


    • Well, these “girls” are grown women now and come into town together to go shopping sometimes in Orlando. They don’t have all the offerings of stores that we do here in their smaller town. Nor restaurants.

      I enjoyed shopping with them when they were kids too! They take after their mother when it comes to the love of shopping.


  9. Love the photo you chose to go with your grand 160, it is so surreal but then again so is shopping at a mall, Hope you had a lovely day with your girls shopping,



    • Yes, shopping at a mall can be surreal! So true.

      Had a great day with them. Thanks for coming by and commenting, Joanny.
