friday finds ... the 3.28 edition

"a mother is a daughter's best friend ..."

I love Friday Finds with Kim Klassen ... "it is a place to gather and share ... a place to cherish life's simple pleasures" ... doesn't that sound like such an inviting place?

I found my friday find this week in a very round about way.  You see ... i went clothes shopping with my daughter ... and if you know me at all, then you know how much i hate to shop.  
I knew i was in trouble when i pulled into the lot and quickly realized that i needed to drive around and around looking for a place to park.  I checked my calendar ... but no it was not Christmas time.  So why was the mall so crowded?  Do this many people shop year around?

I so wanted to just turn around and head for home ... but you see i had promised my daughter new clothes.  She has worked hard and shed twenty pounds and is in desperate need. 

So i put on my brave face and off we went to search for THE perfect outfits.  

We made a bee~line to our favorite store ... antropologie.
 She loves the clothes ... i love everything else!
So while she was trying on outfit after outfit ... i was browsing thru the kitchen section.

I spotted the perfect bowl that i knew i deserved after a day of shopping ... the color ... the shape ... the lines ... everything about it was beautiful ... even the price!  

So i guess our shopping day was successful after all ... she got new clothes that look adorable on her new cute figure ... i got my bowl ... and we both shared a "best friend" kind of day!
