Somebody stop me!

I went shopping with Beth today and wound up with some of the best stuff! I got a brown leather Terry Lewis jacket (Yeah, I know it’s almost 100 degrees out, but it was a good deal!), 2 pairs of really cute, comfy Helle shoes, a fabulous Falchi handbag, a soft, stretchy Carolyn Strauss top, and some Joy Mangano Huggable Hangers (You wouldn’t want me hanging my new jacket and top on regular old wire hangers, now would you?). In case you haven’t figured it out, this was bring-a-friend week at the HSN employee store, and I was Beth’s guest! She didn't have to twist my arm too hard to get me to go. In fact, the second I read her e-mailed invitation, I grabbed my keys and purse and headed for the door, only stopping off at my computer for the five seconds it took to let her know I was on my way!

Working as a product information writer at HSN was a wonderful experience because I got to know some really great people. When I resigned, I left all my buddies in PI and QA with the promise I’d visit once in a while. Of course, I haven’t been back as often as I would like, but I ran into some of them while they shopped during their lunch break. It was great seeing Sherrie, Danielle, and Deborah who all looked beautiful as ever. Maybe next time, Carrie, Ortaega, Angelina, and Meaghan can get away for a visit.

Everyone know that you can't hang a Terry Lewis jacket on a wire hanger!

I had no idea that there was a special employee store at HSN. Iam soooo jealous of your shopping trip! :-)

Hi, Bea! If you don't know someone who works at HSN, check out the Outlet store. They have some great bargains!

That Terry Lewis jacket looks the bomb on you, Debby! And besides, the Helle snakeskin shoes are a perfect, their purchase was absolutely mandatory.

And, I hope you realize a record was shattered yesterday: you FINALLY spent more money than I did while shopping together! Whoo-hoo!

I look forward to our next shopping adventure! (However, my checkbook is cringing!)

Beth, PI

Your shopping trip sounds absolutely lovely! I've never seen an HSN store--the closest is the QVC store at the Mall of America.

Speaking of which....You're coming to the conference in September, right? Wanna go shopping? The MOA is like my home-away-from-home. Love that place!

Hey, Janet! Absolutely, yes about shopping! I'd love to shop with you!
