Natural Consumer

Just in case you haven't discovered it yet, I'm a shopper. That's right. I love to shop. My idea of a great Saturday afternoon always involves some window shopping. I love spending money too, but for hubbie's sake, I try to control myself. And usually I do.

This week has involved some great purchases, and there are a few more yet to come. I bought the yarn to make my unborn niece a sweater and booties (I'm very excited about this project... I can't wait to master more color work). Hubbie and I bought another car (we are selling our Subaru Outback if you know any new Seattlites looking for a car to fit in the neighborhood).
Yes, our new car is a Prius. We apparently are uber Seattlites with the Prius and the Outback. How much more Northwest could one couple get?

I'm also buying a swimsuit (or two) for our Mexican cruise (there are some good prospects at the Gap that I will try on this weekend). And, now that I have no more excuses, I am buying some new running shoes so I can get off the couch and put my knitting down for at least 30 minutes a day. That way I can be a faster shopper.

I'm thinking of training for the Seattle half marathon in November. Anyone want to join me?

Yeah for 49 miles to the gallon. Who could ever have dreamed driving could be so fun.
