Good Friends & a Good Buy

Wednesday was a good day. I saw 4 of my nearest and dearest, ate some good food and really took a minute to appreciate what good friends I have:)
A good friend is defined in many ways but the clearest example I can give is this...
Remember that episode of SATC that ends with Carri walking up to a diner and knocking on the window as she describes her "3 soul mates" and Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte wave and squeal?
That's it.

After dinner I hit the Glendale H&M and bought 19 items for $94.85.  It happens every once in a while, you just gotta be diligent about perusing those $5 racks.
My Embarrassment of Riches:
3 pairs of earrings - $4
1 pair shiny, mint tights - $5
1 pink, grecian dress - $5
1 apricot, mugler inspired cotton dress - $5
1 black, harem pant jumpsuit - $5
1 black, avedon style wrap dress - $5
1 mint, mod dress with with plastic applique - $5
1 white fringe dress - $7
3 bras - white/pink/black lace - $15
4 pairs undies - white/pink/black lace - $16
2 makeup bags for my kit - $12

Then I came home and cleaned out my lingerie drawer.  It was a fascinating experience that awarded several nuggets of wisdom not the least of which were:
I feel terrible thinking about all the lost time that my bras and panties have spent searching for their soul mate in a dark, crammed armoire when all there while, voila!  A perfect match was doing the same only inches away..
