My big Thursday chronicled in

e drawings...I did a grid of my big day shopping till I dropped.....I think the grid works well to give little snap shots of your day.

I stopped by Dillards at the mall to pay my charge card bill OFF...good thing I did because when I was leaving I noticed the sales signs in the mens department EIGHTY percent OFF...now that was a deal tooo goooddd to pass up...so I loaded up on shirts for my sons...and then I went to the Juniors section...cute tops...only $3 ....got a pile for Drew's fiance Emily who is also a student and always needs clothes....then I went downstairs to look for some for me...and of course I found quite a nice heap of stuff both for Emily and I...I mean you just cant pass up 80% off good name brands right??? Got a pair of Cole Hahn sandals for $17 UNBELIEVABLE?!!

Stopped by Green Thumb nursery to see if they had Astilbe for the front bed and bought a new lovely yellow handled shovel and some pink and yellow lantana...

Last stop was Wally world to buy Drew some tshirts and socks and myself a wheel barrow....you know a wheel barrow is a very interseting looking thing...



After all this shopping at Dillards I was hungry so I went to the Food Court near Dillards had some Japanese Stir Fry from Sapporo...and thought I would have a peaceful time drawing some of the shoppers...and a modicum of privacy....

WRONG...

then we were invaded by TEN busloads of Auburn kids heading to Columbia SC for the game...Everyone of them was wearing the loudest ORANGE shirt you have ever seen....

while they were polite and not really loud...they were everywhere and all that talking it definitely did get loud...my dh and I figured out that there were about 800 kids on those ten buses...thats alot of talkers...Before the ORANGE invasion AFTER The Orange invasion & I drew in the stores so this could count as my store challenge...you know mall stores are actually pretty boring from across the food court...not alot of color from a distance...
