Hello. My name is Terina

And I'm a shopaholic. I love it. I love a good deal. And I have a hard time passing one up.

On our way home on Wednesday, we stopped at Potomac Mills. An outlet mall which had my favorite store in it. H&M. I fell in love with this store when we lived in Germany. They have the greatest kids clothes, and they are so well made. And I usually can find stuff on sale for the kids. The last trip was last September when I was in California. I drove all the way to the Beverly Center in Beverly Hills (will try to avoid doing that again because traffic was HORRIBLE) and found some awesome stuff. This time, I found some awesome stuff for Andrew's school clothes. I found darling dresses and skirts for Lucy. I also found me a few cute shirts. The best part of all this, is that there won't be anyone else down here wearing those clothes. Camille also found some really cute stuff.

They also had a Lindt Chocolate OUTLET!!!! They had these bags of imperfections. Well, it all tastes the same to me. I got some yummy yummy chocolate for much cheaper than I otherwise would have. I think that if I ever get back to Potomac Mills, I better save up for a few months before we get there.

On Friday, Camille wanted to go to the PX. So we did. On walking in there was a sign that said "50% off all clearance prices on clothes and shoes." Wow, did we pick a good day or what!! Camille found some really cute tops. And I found a ton more clothes for the kids. I only bought myself one shirt that was $4. Which was pretty good for me. They also had some polish pottery mini tea sets!! And they had one in my pattern. So, of course I bought it. I also bought one for Matt's little sisters for Christmas. I'm trying to think ahead as I always seem to be moving at that time of year. So, I don't have to buy clothes for the kids for months. Which is awesome. I might have to buy them each a few pairs of pants, but that's it. I'm set on shirts and short for the both of them. I love it.:) And I don't need anything when it comes to clothes or shoes. I have enough to last me until I lose or gain some weight.

And speaking of Christmas, I've already got half of it done. I made made them last week, with the help of Camille. I love it when I manage to think ahead and actually follow through with it! Sad part of the weekend is that Camille leaves soon. It's amazing how time flies when you have someone visiting (or sometimes not with some visitors) and other weeks drag by. Oh well. We have been invited to a friends house for the Fourth of July which will give me something to look forward to this week. (thanks nicole!)

But because of all that I've spent this week, (and it was a lot) I cannot go to PX for a month. I can't. Because then it will be too tempting. So unless I absolutely MUST go there to get something I will not. Not Walmart, (which I try not to go to anyway) Target, or Kohls. No where. And not only that, I can't go to ebay, etsy, the Gap or anywhere else online. Hopefully I'll be able to stick to this. I really need to. Because I'm a shopaholic. Anyone want to start a Shopaholics Anonymous group?

This sounds like a lot of fun! Lindt chocolate...mmmmm! I have never heard of Potomac Mills, but you've piqued my interest.
