Day 141- Barnes and Noble

I was a bad girl today.

I wore my pajamas until after 12.

I spent more than my rewards certificate on my customary Friday afternoon cruise through my favorite Hallmark store.

I bought a $3 coffee, even though I have plenty of coffee at home.

I made the dog go for a long walk with me, despite the fact that the wind was blowing us both over.

I ate two lunches.

That's not even the worst of it. 

After my stroll through Hallmark (where I actually did have some cards to buy, to be fair), I took an equally pleasurable stroll through Barnes and Noble (where I also had legitimate business to do, mind you).  I left with my expensive coffee in one hand and more than $100 worth of books and a Barnes and Noble special membership in the other.  I'm not even sorry.  When I made it to the car, I took out the books and inhaled deeply.  Don't fresh books have the most wonderful fragrance?  I love the library too, but the smells are just not the same. 

The worst part of all this is I'll probably do it again, especially now that I have a lot more time on my hands and a discount card in my wallet.  However, as I curled up on the couch this afternoon with a book I've been wanting to read for a long time, I couldn't have cared less.  There may just be a blog about the book tomorrow when I finish it :).... and I may just have to add Barnes and Noble to my Hallmark trip every now and then. 

Thank you, Barnes and Noble, you made my day.

Yes, after reading your Mother's Day blog I had to read more of your blogs... and I love them.

I had a "bad girl" day recently too. Walked away from one of my favorite book stores with over $50 worth of books I shouldn't have bought, felt bad for a minute, then didn't any more. :)

I love the smell of books too!
