In search of the prefect accessories

Becky spent the night with Mimi Friday night and we spent the day shopping for prom accessories.
I talked to Becca before I left home and she suggested some good places to try to accomplish our mission. She thought
we should try Stein Mart, Katie's and Shoe Carnival.
The day started with all of us sleeping in. Mimi made Mickey waffles as requested by Becky. They were delicious and brought back wonderful memories.
Our first stop was Stein Mart where we found a cute bag, a nice necklace and earrings. They were not perfect but we took pictures for reference later.

Next stop: Katie's
Here we found the PERFECT necklace with matching earrings and a beautiful bling bling bracelet.

We tried Famous Footwear but they were closed (forever). Mimi saw the Hallmark store so we went there. Then Bealls and Ross, both were a bust. I wanted to stop at Avenue, so we did. I got two new shirts, a bathing suit and a cover up.
We were all thirsty so Sonic was a must. Three Route 44s - diet coke with cherry, cherry limeade and vanilla orange fanta.
Shoe Carnival was having a sale but had nothing appropriate. Marshalls was next - nothing there either. Then on to Best Buy. (Mimi needed a wireless keyboard and mouse.) This is where we lost the car and Mimi ended up two blocks away. We finally found the car (exactly where we left it) but Mimi was a whole other story.
At this point Becky was hungry so lunch at Chick-fil-a was in order. 8 piece and 12 piece chicken nugget, chicken sandwich and a large order of waffle fries. Don't forget the sauce - chick-fil-a for Becky and honey mustard for me.
Next stop: Payless where we found the perfect shoes.

I also found a cute pair of black flats for work. Thanks, Mom.
Mom wanted to go to walmart to get Easter buckets. Becky and I napped in the car while mom shopped.
Now we are after the elusive - perfect purse... We end up at the mall where every man, woman, child and dog were after the perfect silver evening bag... JC Penney - no. Icing - maybe. Check out Mimi's hat:

Coach - no. Dillards - YES!!!

While at Dillards we saw Sweet Ilene and got a special treat - a Sweet Ilene cookie!
We stopped in a Build a Bear.
At this point we are all exhausted!!! We went to Mimi's house and took a nap. We were all surprised when we woke up almost three hours later. :) Of course we are all hungry so we went to El Charo's for dinner. Next we went to Brookshire's to buy stuff for Easter dinner. Becky was "being helpful."

Sorry the picture is blurry. It was just such a funny moment that I had to take a picture. With all of the shopping done for the day. It was time to take Becky home. Becky drove to where we met Charley. That was an adventure.

Charley was very surprised (and pleased) to see Becky behind the wheel. What a wonderful way to end a wonderful day!?! Hugs all around!!!

May all of your missions be accomplished with much laughter shared with those you love!

Fun trip! Glad you all enjoyed yourselves. You know Aunt Becky would have been proud of you all for shopping 'til you all dropped!!
