I’m not a person who gripes a whole lot about winter. In my opinion, it’s a lot better than summer! But it does tend to get on my nerves a bit when it dares to snow on a scheduled “chick day”!
This last Monday Best Friend and I planned a shopping trip to Nashville. She has a fancy Valentines Gala she’s going to with her Sweetie and Clarksville is pitiful on its selection of classy dresses. As she said, “It is either ‘prom’ or ‘hoochie mama’.”
With a wink I told her she just didn’t know where to shop… and we headed to Macys at Green Hills mall.
What I really like about Macys is the rate they change out their clothing selections (keeps it fresh and keeps customers coming in to look). And when they change out, they know how to have a sale. The norm is 65% off and it goes up from there. I am so tired of stores who act like 15% off is a wonderful clearance sale.
As we were getting ready to leave it started doing that snow/sleet thing and the temperatures were getting COLD.
So we took Little Red… after all, he has 4 Wheel drive!
By the time we got to Nashville it was only raining. Good deal! Didn’t matter it was a COLD rain.
To get into the shopping mood we had a nice lunch at The Cheesecake Factory.
Then on to my beloved Macys.
I am quite pleased to say I wasn’t let down. Within 20 minutes we had found a great ‘little black dress’ that looked wonderful on her. Since we had done so well with time, we could poke about the mall a bit.
On the way out (stopping by The Cheesecake Factory one more time for dessert) we saw the rain had changed over to snow. And a lot of it. Drat it! So we ordered out cheesecake to go (key lime, thank you very much) and off we went.
What a difference a few COLD hours make…
There were quite a few cars off the road, one on its roof! And you know what? They were ALL sports type cars. We who stayed over in the ‘slow’ lane doing 30 mph did just fine. You can see the slush on the road.
Nope, a little COLD and snow isn’t going to slow me down!
