A Little Holiday Shopping Fun :)

James gave me his credit card today to make a few returns for him,etc and I immediately thought in the words of Julia Roberts (aka Vivian) "Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now"

This is how I see my afternoon going....:)



'Twas the weeks before Christmas, when shopping needed to be done,

This is what Jennifer called Christmas fun!

James gave her the AMEX with much confidence and care,

In hopes that his needed presents would soon be there.

Could she stick to his list that she had in her hand?


Of course she could! That is the plan.....


The list was short and she knew she could get it done quick,

So off to the mall to see what she could pick!

She spotted a pair of boots that would look great on her feet,

At an incredible price you simply couldn't beat!

So she swiped the card thinking it'll be fine,

Then turned and saw a Chi and shouted "oh, now that one's mine!"

So she pulled the green card out of her wallet once again,

One pair of boots and a Chi, it can't be that big a sin'

Then out of her wandering eyes... a new purse did appear!

She saw it, held and loved it and thought oh dear!

But then was startled, when around the corner there arose such a clatter,

She sprang to the designer purses to see what was the matter.

Away to each one she flew like a flash,

Tore open her wallet, ready to shell out the cash.

With her fashion knowledge, so lively and merry,

She knew in a moment it must be.........Burberry!

More excited than ever, not a one looked the same,


And she whistled! and shouted! and called them by name!


"Now, Gucci! now, Prada! Kate Spade and Michael Kors!

On, Fendi! on Coach and Louis Vuitton.....her most adored!

To the top of the line! to the top of the mall!

Now buy them! buy them! buy them all!"

So up to the register she quickly flew,

With her hands full of purses, and a few wallets too!

She needed to finish her list and hurry back home,

Knowing with James' card, she must not shop alone.

A bundle of bags she had flung on her back,

And she looked like Jackie O opening her giftsack.

Her eyes -- how they twinkled! her new purses made her merry!

Then she ran across the receipt... and oh! that was scary!

To make it up, she'd cook James' favorite meal to satisfy his belly

Trying to laugh and not worry her butt shook like a bowlful of jelly.

She knew it was time to leave the mall right there and then,

She couldn't wait for Christmas two-thousand and ten!


I heard her exclaim as her car drove out of The Lenox's lights.......

"Happy Shopping to all, and to all a good-night."
