Who do you shop with?

Would you like to go shopping with me?


I usually go by myself but I’m fortunate to have a hubby that likes to shop, too and today he asked me if I wanted to go to the mall! I just need to hear the word GO….I love to GO anywhere! lol


First stop…the linen shop!


Hubby found these pillows that he knew I would like!


Remember I am Southern….through and through! If you could only hear my accent you wouldn’t have a doubt!


Hubby bought new hand towels for his bathroom. (the secret of a happy marriage…his and her bathrooms! heehee)


He helped me pick out a fun new handbag.


It’s even cuter on the back!


And I got some Lemon Zest bath products….we both like this fresh scent.


We haven’t been to the mall in awhile and it was fun to see all of the new shoe styles for Spring!

I thought of my girlfriend, Diane HERE when I saw these and knew she would love them!


What do you like to shop for at the mall?

Clothes? Shoes? Handbags? Linens? Bath Products? Jewelry? (what did I miss?)

I love to go shopping with my mom!! We always have such a good time together!! I typically only go to the mall when my mom comes to visit since she is from a small town and loves to get out and find clothes no one else at work will be wearing.

Aud said...

So much wonderful colors and patterns you are viewing. At this time of year I like best to buy plants and garden stuff.
Have a great weekend :-)

Cranberry Morning said...

What a lot of cheerful color this morning! Love that handbag. isn't it darling!

Susan said...

I head to Vera Bradley, Williams-Sonoma, and a walk through the Disney Store...I'm a Grammy!
I was born in Tennessee, but my hubby is definitely a Northern; maybe I should get him one of those pillows!

It's nice to have a husband that doesn't mind shopping. My hubby is good like that too. Such cheery things in your post. We all need that today!

RURAL magazine said...

I used to go shopping all the time...but now I spend more time with my camera, and my garden. It's a good trade off for me.

And besides I get to see what goodies you bought, so that's perfect.

I like the beach bag in the first picture. I'm not much of a shopper.

Diane Writes said...

I actually saw your post this morning but work was quite busy this morning :) I forgot to comment haha

Everything in this post is beautiful especially since it pertains to my favorite, shopping haha

I love the colorful pillows, very fitted in our summer season. Your little bag is cute and I love the summer colors.

And save the best for last... oh girlfriend! I died when I saw that beautiful pair hahaha I love the pair in lavender and even the light pink in bows. Can you take me there with you? And please don't tell me that they have an online shop haha Thank you for remembering me dear friend. It really made me happy that you know that things that make me happy.

PS May I borrow this pic in my blog post? thanks

Vee said...

"If you're not from the South, bless your heart" Ha! I love that. Would you believe that even I was born in Dixie? Tee hee...but I will consider myself blessed. Yes, I'd love to shop with you!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Diane we would have so much fun shopping together! Love Love Love the pillows!! And that cute new purse, anything flip flop I love also! Fun!!

Would I like to go shopping with you?!?! You KNOW it!!! :) I'm lucky to have a husband who likes shopping too. He's typically my partner in crime. ;)
My favorites to shop for are dinnerware, bath products (currently loving soaps in pretty packages, esp lemon scented), linens, and art supplies.
Love those pillows.

Barb said...

LOVE the pillow sayings and LOVE all the fabulous colors you found while shopping. You have a knack for finding great things!

well first of all you are sooooooooooo, lucky to have a man who loves to shop!My husband tolerates shopping only because I am to blind to go alone,
oh the treasures you showed us today, I would love to go shopping with you!

I have to admit, the first stop I make when I visit the mall is the Chocolate Shop. I usually buy 2 truffles for myself, because I can never decide what one flavor I want.

Our nearest mall is about 2 hours away from us, so we don't make the trip too often.

The book store is always my second stop. Now I really want to do some shopping.

My, but I do LOVE those lavender and pink shoes. I just ordered a pair about that color of pink..perhaps a bit softer. Cost and arm and a leg..but you KNOW how it is when you think you just MUST have something. 30% off is fantastic. Lots of pretty goodies on your shopping trip. I went to an estate sale this morning..I SCORED! :)
How have you been, my friend. I am afraid I owe you SO many visits..
Sooo very far behind. I wanted to thank you for your sweet comment regarding the loss of my daughter. I am still reeling but trying to get a grip on life once again.
big hugs,

Unknown said...

Oh, Diane, those shoes made me swoon!
Take me, take me!

Chatty Crone said...

I want the shoes, the pillow that says stay southern, and the flamingos, my address is ...

Noelle the dreamer said...

I had to laugh Diane...I cannot remember the exact day I saw a mall last...Three years ago? Canterbury? Maybe Cheltenham?
Ex-RAF hubby HATES shopping and I will admit I much prefer smaller local shoppes. Mind you, I enjoy charity shoppes (who can resist a bargain?)and of course book stores!
Living on an island meant I do a lot online (then I must go to the mainland to pick it up...)
I like the bright colours you chose, a southern hint perhaps?
His and Hers bathroom? No such thing here but then again I should not complaint as hubby lends a hand by cleaning that famous room as well as passing the hoover! His reward: I bake everything under the sun as he has a sweet tooth!

Olive said...

I never if I can help it go to a mall. But if I did it would be for P.F. Changs food. I like the Bless Your Heart pillow-sometimes it means what it says, sometimes it means something else.

Suzan said...

Such a fun shop!! I like going by myself so I can piddle if I want or really dig in and shop.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

I adore using quotes and so seeing the quotes and sayings on the pillows was really sweet~ Happy weekend!

NanaDiana said...

What a fun shopping trip. Love the handbag. Actually, my hubby likes to shop more than I sure he would go for the flowered flats though! xo Diana

Unknown said...

Purses, bags, stuff to hold stuf,kitchen anything-those are my all time favs. How nice that your husband likes to shop!
Have a good weekend.

Unknown said...

Barbara F. said...

Diane, I LOVE to shop, too much so, was out shopping today with two friends!! I was pretty good, didn't get too carried away! I love the pillow about getting to the south as fast as I could.....that is my mantra lol xo

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Those shoes are adorable! I have not been to the mall forever. I think I need to from time to time to keep up on trends


Danice G said...

Oh, I love to shop for about everything! The shoes are adorable. Folks have only to hear one word from my mouth and they can tell I am Southern, lol!

cucki said...

Aww so much fun..
Take me,.take me..

Susie said...

Sorry I missed the shopping trip. I like your new purse. I wouldn't mind having those pink flats. I loved all those southern funny. Hope your weekend is wonderful.xoxo,Susie

Ivy, Phyllis and Me! said...

Good Afternoon Diane, Firstly I have to apologise, I thought I had become a follower before I went to India, oh's my age I think. I have remedied the situation now though and I look forward to getting to know you.
Secondly, thank you so much for the card and the sweet gift you sent me. I am going to be writing back this week.
I love the "Springiness" in your blog. The lovely pumps with the flowers are perfect for when the sun shines and I adore the cushions they are fun.
George is not a shopper, he will only come if I promise we will have lunch out, but that works for me as it saves me cooking when we return home!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Best Wishes

Cheryl @ TFD said...

The shoes are just the cutest things! I'm going shopping in just a few minutes with my daughter. Here I am at the computer while waiting on her. Hope we find some cute things, too!
Enjoy your weekend!

Robyn said...

I havent been to the mall in ages but if hubby ever said cmon lets go, I'd be goin!..I can shop for anything...I just love to shop!...

sweetbriardreams said...

Wow! Such colours!! It looks as though you had a great time. My hubby usually keeps at home when I shop, I drive him mad! My daughter has now followed in my footsteps and 'could shop for England!!'. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Chel x

Pat Kelly said...

Hi Diane! Loved the pictures! My favorite were the shoes! I love the flip flops with the flower and the darling flats with the flowers! What was the name of the store where you saw those? Would love t get some!! Love, Pat

cynthia lee designs said...

We have a small mall that is about 15 minutes from where I live. I like to go out there to the little country store. Then go across the street to Hobby Lobby and JoAnn Fabrics.
Hope you have having a great weekend.

Diane said...

I used to love shopping with my Mum, it was always such fun and we giggled like young school kids at things that amused us. We shopped for all the things you like.

Now we shop for food, garden and hardware, life is very dull shopping nowadays!! Take care Diane
