Shopping trip with the girls

Saturday we had a shopping trip for my group of friends that I haven’t had time for in so very long. With life as crazy as it has been over the holidays, now that the new year is here it is time for us to get together, and some of us had Christmas gift cards that were burning a hole in our wallets. So, we decided to meet at the mall at ten a.m. so we could get in some shopping before lunch.

We hit Macy’s and a few of the big names before we decided to go to some of the smaller stores, including Victoria’s Secret. All women’s favorite for those unmentionables. I splurged on a new leather jacket at Wilson’s, and I bought a couple of new outfits for myself at Macy’s. We had a lot of fun shopping together.

We decided on lunch at a regular restaurant rather than the food court and The Cheesecake Factory won out of course. It was a great lunch with lots of laughs and plenty of gossip. Not wanting our outing to end already, we decided to take in a matinee, but unfortunately we couldn’t decide on a movie since they were all action or kids movies – with the exception of one that no one was interested in. We ended up calling it a day, but still had a blast none the less.

Satellite Versus Cable

When I first moved into my new home, it was cable ready, but I knew from the start that I would prefer to subscribe to a satellite company instead, which I switched to immediately after all of the final paperwork was signed, and everything said and done, in the closing of the house. For the most part I have been happy with satellite, it has been just recently that I noticed an increase on my monthly bill and due to a lot of the high winds that we have been experiencing here, I have lost our signal a whole lot more than usual.

The main issue I have right now is the selection on movies that they have to offer as of late, on their Pay Per View Movies, the last couple of times that I have wanted to just kick back and order a movie just by clicking a few buttons on the remote, their hasn’t been much of a selection that I find appealing enough to order.
