My Least Favorite Past Time that I Loved

What?  You may think that didn't make any sense and well, maybe it didn't.  But it does to me.  If you know me very well, you will know that I'm not a very big shopper.  I don't have the patience for it.  I think it's a huge waste of time and money.  I'm a get in, get it, and get out kind of shopper.

But I was given a very daunting task.  Bekah needed some things and assigned me as her personal shopper.  She gave me a list and sent me a check.  I have to say, I absolutely loved it!  She needed some clothes and let me loose, which shows she is very trusting.  I may have gone a bit overboard.  The package weighed over 16 pounds. Do you know how much it costs to send a package that big to Japan?  Let's just say, next time I'm not going to go so overboard.

I found some great bargains, which is why I may have gotten a bit too much.  Take a look at Bekah's package.

The outfit on the right (above) is her Birthday present.

I really wanted to keep the skirt on the right, but I'm a very selfless friend. :)

She's gonna look good!

The package also included some hairspray she wanted as well as make-up.  Bekah also knits and crochets, so I included some yarn that a friend had given me.

She already got the package and I'm really glad that she liked the clothes I sent.  Sometimes we have different tastes, but I think she liked it all.

So there you have it.  I really did love the past-time that I usually detest.

You did an awesome job (if you're ever in CO, I'll hire you to help me with outfits, too!). I think it's such a neat ministry and a blessing. Great job.:)

All right, at our get together we have to shop. I have been totally disgusted with the ugliness of clothes lately & I haven't bought anything. Maybe I just need your help b/c all of this stuff looks GREAT! Bekah will be the super best dressed gal around!

You're a good friend! By the way, you can get a global priority box at the P.O. and put up to 20 lbs in it for around $50. It's not a huge box, but if you work hard at rolling clothes, etc. you can fit a lot in. When I get one from home, I have to be careful when I open it. It usually explodes! HA!
