(I'm three for three this week, what what!)
Shopping on vacation is great. Shopping at an outlet mall is even better.
Our closest outlet is about four hours away, so anytime I see a good outlet mall (Tanger is the best), it’s time to HIT THAT UP. We made a map, we had a plan, and we executed it beautifully. So beautifully, as a matter of fact, that our husbands’ eyes nearly bulged out of their heads when they saw our loot.

I think the picture is shaky because Sean was about to pass out.
My best buy of the day was a $60 Banana Republic sweater for…$1.98. Yep, less than $2. And, if I do say so myself, it looks pretty dang spectacular on me. That was the best buy. However, our biggest buy…

Some girls get tattoos to commemorate friendship or a fantastic vacation. We opted for Coach purses. I’m usually fairly practical when it comes to purchases, but…well, it’s a good memory, lol!!

I walked around the Coach store with about every purse in the store on my shoulder until I found “The One” (which needs a name, I believe, but I haven’t come up with one yet). 
As soon as we walked in the store, Rindy looked around and said, “Ladies, we are leaving here with Coach purses!” (She’s been eyeing hers for some time.) And, sure enough, we did. 
We also ate at The Chop House twice that day. Yes, that’s correct. We went for lunch, and it was absolutely delicious. I had lobster fettuccini, and everything was so delicious that we called the boys to come meet us there for dinner.
What’s really funny is that I asked Brooke where a good place to eat would be…and she suggested The Chop House! I’m just sad there’s not one ANYWHERE around me. Boo on that!
And next (maybe?) we discuss...Dollywood!!

I haven't been brave enough to enter the coach outlet yet, Loft almost gave me sticker shock. then again i'm use to paying $3.99 for Loft pants at the thrift store so :P

although $1.98 for the banana republic top is a better deal than i can find even 2nd hand!!
