Christmas Shopping

I decided to finally get out and make my way through the crowds to get a little Christmas shopping done today. I have an aversion to crowded parking lots and pushy people, but I was running out of time and had to make some progress!

I heard from Michael over at Obstructed View that a few new stores are coming in to the Tanger Outlet Mall in Terrell - the first one being a Crocs Shoestore! I've never owned a pair of Crocs, but I did hold some of their stock(CROX) for a while this year. Now that it's coming in locally to Terrell, I'll have to re-invest in them and go out and buy a pair!! Our outlet mall is kind of small, so it's good to see new stores coming in and making sure the spaces aren't vacant!

Terrell has some great places to shop, but for the things I needed I had to go north to Rockwall - which has a much wider selection of stores to choose from, and a lot more people and traffic as well.

To relieve some of the stress from shopping, Jim and I stopped down at the Harbor on Ray Hubbard Reservoir to snap a few shots... it was a beautiful sunny day, with deep blue skies - amazing!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend - last shopping weekend before Christmas!

That sky really IS pretty - what is that last pic of?

I've been watching the blizzard on the East Coast on The Weather Channel today, sure wish 'some' of that snow would fall here in SE Mo - No white Christmas for us... as usual, dangit!
