quiet weekend

We didn't do much this weekend. Went to the mall to eat at Cheeburger, Cheeburger where I am most likely the only person who asks for no cheese on her burger. It's not that I don't like cheese. Just not so much on my burgers and sandwiches.

My DD and did manage to find her a prom dress. Of course, everyone else was on the same mission. Tons of girls and mothers all looking for that perfect dress. The store where DD loves all the clothes had some beautiful to look at dresses, but upon closer examination some of the workmanship was lacking. We found a gorgeous yellow dress, but on all of them, the front middle part of the bodice was ripping apart. We found dresses with tons of missing beads, straps that have already parted company with the body of the dress - it was so disappointing. (PS Yellow is appently going to be a big color this year - and all the sherbet colors.)

Amazingly we found her a gorgeous dress in Filenes. Of course there was this other dress she fell in love with, but being as it was strapless, it really wasn't for her. And her shoes and purse from last year work quite well so that's all taken care of.

The only purchase I made that day was a package of 99 cent colored staples at this new Japanese store called Dori.

A side note to this would be noting that Barnes and Noble are carrying fewer and fewer stitching mags. It's depressing.

On Sunday I watched an old Gene Tierney movie, Dragonwyck, with Vincent Price. I moved right along my Shepherd's Bush scissor fob - the 2001 Bees one. It's more than halfway finished.
