My Adventures at the Mall (Should Be Called Who Do I Think I Am...
Paul Blart: Mall Cop?)
Last night we went to the mall. I was craving a grilled chicken salad from Chipotle. After eating we went shopping. We went into Wilson's Leather because I noticed they had a lot of items 70% off. My husband and son left me and went to another store. That's when my adventures started. I was looking at handbags and wallets. They had handbags in several locations, so I moved to the edge of the store. I saw a woman looking at a jacket. She quickly got it off the hanger and started rolling it up like a towel. She put it in her tote bag. Without thinking I said, "Excuse me, take that out of your bag". I startled her and I shocked myself. I couldn't believe I was being so bold! She removed it from her bag. I then said "What you are doing is wrong"...again I couldn't believe my own ears. She then looked over at another young woman and said something I can't repeat, but then she said "This is none of your business" as she put the jacket back in her bag. I then realized that it was two women shoplifting together. As soon as they headed to the door, I ran to the cashier to tell him. We watched helplessly and they ran out the mall entrance. He thanked me for telling him. It was very surreal. They didn't leave their Styrofoam food container from the food court in all this hoopla.
The good news..they left one of the jackets. The bad news...items get shoplifted, even when they are 70% off.

Is Anyone Going to the SJ Stamp Show Tomorrow?
A Stamp in the Hand Co.
I also want to see Jane's Copic demo from 1-4 PM at Memories Live On tomorrow in Cupertino:
Memories Live On
I don't know if I'll be able to go to both events. I'm taking off right now to take my son to the Children's Discovery Museum. He's been patiently waiting for me. This is his last day of Winter Break.

WHOO Loves You?
Edited to Add: here's another location for the owl template from Scrapbooks, Etc.
Our early dinner plans didn't quite work out today. We arrived at the Cheesecake Factory around 4:30 PM for an early dinner. The lobby was jammed with people...so many people. We didn't even ask how long the wait would be....had to be way over an hour! We shopped at the mall. Took Kalino to the Lego store for the first time. He had a mini meltdown. He wanted the larger Star Wars sets....um...I don't think so. He had a budget of $10 (Grandma & Grandpa set him money for Valentine's Day). We are trying to help him learn the value of a dollar. He finally picked out a cool helicopter....the drama. Oh my!
We decided to our back up dinner plans would be the Falafel Drive In across the freeway from the mall. Yummy! The best falafels!! We ate outside in the cold (we didn't have to, but we didn't mind). That's how good this place is. If you are ever in San Jose, look it up.
Thanks for looking!
The fun at Papertrey Ink continues. Our challenge today was to make a card using a color combo that Dawn McVey used last week. I choose the color combo in the first card on this post.
I made this card for my Sweetie! He's been in the studio with me this morning watching "Cranky Geeks" on his computer, but I don't think he noticed what I was making. Valentine's Day started off with him making me a yummy breakfast (french toast, eggs, and bacon).
I hope you have a great day. Thanks for looking!
