i can’t say i’ve ever had a job before that took you to lunch at a casino, paid for your admission to a tulip festival and then gave you an hour and a half shopping frenzy at an outlet mall…. apparently there are firsts for everything! our boss even braved a bus full of 17 women… i had suggested we go see the matinee of “in the land of women” instead!
i had been so excited to go to the tulip festival… a few sundays ago i asked christian if we could go and he was so disappointed since he’d been planning to surprise me. but we both were surprised when i got to go there on a work field trip. it was about an 1 1/2 bus ride, and as we pulled in i couldn’t believe all the colors. i made sure to document the trip for my cousin, who was the creator of my wedding bouquet… i saw styles and colors i didn’t even know existed! it was really amazing. i wanted to walk through fields for a little bit longer…but the next stop on our work fieldtrip: the outlet mall. lucky for me the bus let us off right by the puma and adidas stores. let me explain a few things… i love pumas and adidas. i have longed for my own pairs, but i was never willing to shell over the real price for the kicks. enter christian with his pumas and adidas’ a bounty… i definitely coveted his collection… although size 11s don’t work too well on size 6.5 feet!
i was on a mission to finally buy myself some shoes. and buy them i did! i even got a pair of pumas for christian for just $25 and some adidas soccer cleats for $15. it was a little embarrasing getting back onto the bus with five boxes of shoes! but the women were eager to show off their goods, baby outfits for grandbabies and nieces, linen pants, sunglasses, a blazer, jewelry. boss man even bought a few shirts himself. all in all it was an extremely productive day. but i think we need to take a trip back to the outlets since i never even made it past the puma and adidas stores!
