Don't Drink and Shop

Y'all know how much I love handwritten cards and letters, right? When I arrived home from New Orleans tonight, I had a card from my sister in the mailbox. It was a thank you note for her birthday gift. I gave Jenn a gift card to our favorite store and a Preppy Travel Mug from Monogram Chick. I have a Preppy Travel Mug and when Jenn visited me in January we filled the mug with Pinot Grigio and headed to the mall. That can be a bad combination. Remember girls, don't drink and shop!


After our fun shopping trip, Jenn was in love with my mug so I purchased her one for her birthday. My favorite part of her thank you note was, "I love the mug and I will be putting Pinot Grigio in it." So funny!



I'm not a coffee drinker but I use my Preppy Travel Mug all the time. It's perfect for cold water, diet coke, or Pinot Grigio! :) Everyone should have one!






Mom, Me, and Jenn... a long time ago

I LOVE your preppy (and pretty) coffee mug. I don't even drink coffee and I'd use it all the time. It's so much better than those boring chrome ones!

Wine and shopping would be a fatal combination for me... !

I agree! Every time Banana has the VIP events, I leave with more clothes than I need...and quite a few things I'll never actually wear.

Since I gave up drinking coffee I haven't had any use for all of my travel mugs. Now I do! Pinot Grigio is my favorite--especially Santa Margherita!

Jenji said...

That is funny, and sounds like a lot of fun!

Me having wine and shopping is something my husband would be deathly afraid of.

I love that you brought wine to the mall!! That's totally something I would do. I wish I had a sister to do things like that with! And I love the mug, I definitely want to order one now.

Gin & tonics + Ebay is my fatal combination. I love the Monogram Chick mug, too, I just can't decide on what print I want!

Amy said...

I love the flashback photos.... yall were so cute!

If I would have been drinking before going shopping, I probably wouldn't have made to the shops - you would have to leave me passed out in the back seat, ha ha.... remember that time - it was AWFUL!

Out of curiosity, why do women love shoes so much?

Feel free to stop on by my blog, though I'm new to the whole scene.

Look at you - preppy even in the (what?) 80s???? Oh, yeah - I should have known!! I LOVE your preppy mug! Sometimes, I like to get something fancy for myself, just so I can "pretend". Sigh.

You were both so cute.
