Our final day in Chicago was spent on ... SHOPPING ... yes, this trip was all about spending cheese.
While sitting on the toilet in our hotel room's bathroom I watched Oprah give away $4.5 million dollars worth of gifts to an audience full of teachers! Hello! Why wasn't I there?!?
You think I'd be happy enough to have a bathroom with a TV in it but NO! The show was called Oprah's Favorite Things and she gave away all of her favorite things to the teacher-filled audience. Dooney & Burke purses, Sony VAIO laptops, gift certificates out the ass ... damn ... I should'a been in that audience!
But anyways, the gang went shopping at IKEA while Brandon and I hit the nearby mall.
BUT GET THIS ... you wanna know what I bought on this trip ... NOTHING! I got one $15 scarf (which I don't even love) at Urban Outfitters and 3 cd singles (none over $4.99) at the Virgin Megastore ... and that's it! IS THAT NOT INSANE?!
Ah well, it's all good. I saved boucoup bucks for shopping here at home ... and what can be wrong with that?
