I thought Friday would never come.
In today’s purse I want to talk about not forgetting about you.
Losing Aintee Connie has really opened my eyes to a bunch of things. The way I use to live my life had so many restrictions on it. I realize that I was putting the restrictions on myself. I never wanted to stray away from what I thought was normal. She would often tell me “Girl don’t worry about it”. I think I finally know what she meant by that phrase. She wanted me to enjoy my life, and not run to everyone else’s "beck and call"; to not worry about every bill and problem, and most importantly to not forget about myself. I decided that since Aintee lived for Fridays and LOVED to SHOP that we can all do something in memory of Aintee's loving Friday’s.
Here’s what we are going to do.
We will call it, “Don’t Forget About You Friday”
Every other Friday we must buy something for ourselves. It can be anything: a pair of socks, a tube of lip gloss, a dress, a car, etc. There are no limits. We should enjoy the things that life has to offer us and stop putting restrictions on ourselves; let’s live life and love life in Connie’s Purse. When you buy the item you can take a picture and send it to me to post or leave a comment and let us all know how you treated yourself. I will kick off this Friday. I am finally starting to lurk around the stores again. At first it felt strange shopping without her but now I’m starting to feel a little better.
This is what I picked up...
I could not pass up these shades. Aintee Loved her shades she had a pair in every purse. I found this great sunglass case.
I went to Trader Joes and picked up a bottle of wine and my favorite red wines glasses.
Finally...Here is my 50 Follwers Give Away. Whenever we went shopping and found something we really like we would buy two. This DIVA sunglass case can be yours. Once Connie's Purse has 50 followers I will give away this case. It is totally Aintee Connie's style and I hope you like it too. I know that I have a couple of fella's that follow, so I will find a gift for you guys as well. Good Luck! We are only 21 followers away.
I would like to dedicate this song to all of the Superwomen that follow Connie's Purse.
Our next "Don't Forget About You" session will be Friday, March 25th. Happy Shopping!!!!
