Merry Christmas in April

This year for Christmas Denise, my stitching sister, gave me a gift certificate to Vera Bradley. In the fall, when I went to Amy's I had bought one of the Fall collections and mentioned it to Denise that in the Spring I was going to do the same thing. Since Denise says that I am a very difficult person to buy for she now knew the perfect gift to give me for Christmas, a Vera Bradley gift certificate. Today I used my present.

I purchased the tote bag, iPad sleeve, smartphone wristlet, pen, luggage tag with cute fish on it, clear cosmetic case also with a cute fish that I will use for all my needlepoint tools and the last item I got was a mirror cosmetic bag which was a free gift. I just love all my new things. Thank you Denise.

When I was at the register paying for everything, I mentioned to the salesgirl that I was coming last Sunday but they were closed for Easter and I had a coupon that expired that day. She asked if I had the coupon with me and I told her that I had thrown it away. She asked what the coupon looked like and the amount and I told her. She honored the coupon. I love Vera Bradley.

A post would not be complete without a few pictures of Jake. He is now playing soccer. It seems like only yesterday he was just a baby.

Listening to the coach.

Enjoying a refreshment.

Hi Diane,
Yes, I am all set for Texas. I just filled my new bag with all my needlepoint tools and accessories.
Jake is already an all star in my eyes.
