A Day of My Favorite Things

Today was a blur of some of my favorite things: Being on the road, Dallas, Shopping, Knit Shops & Joe's Crab Shack all in one day. I drove a total of 750 miles for the main purpose of buying a new handbag - don't ask - it's complicated. I left the house at 5:00 a.m. and got back at around 9:00 p.m. Talk about a whirlwind of fun in the "BIG D"

Fosters Western Shop in Denton is one of my favorite stops along the way that has reasonably priced rhinestone belts, accessories and clothing. Then to the Galleria to get my new, larger LV handbag. Passing through Macy's (to the parking garage, of course) I found a Nine West denim pant suit for work that was on sale and will be perfect for the summer months. I couldn't dare leave town without hitting a knit shop or two. I had never been to Passion Knits which is in the Highland Park area so I checked that out (pictured - neat layout of knitting area "lofted" above the sales floor). Made my way back north by way of Plano and my favorite knit shop in Texas, The Woolie Ewe. There, I did order a kit for a Queensland top and the pattern/yarn for Fiber Trends Felt Alpacas & Llamas. Joe's Crab Shack is a favorite stop for peel 'n eat shrimp, oysters, clams & Coronas.
