I have been on constant doggie-duty for the past month.
So on Saturday, my husband surprised me by
taking care of the boys
and the dog
so I could have a relaxing day to myself.
If I had known about this little treat ahead of time
I would have booked a massage or something.
But instead I headed to Short Hills Mall.
The most fabulous mall in New Jersey!
I could barely contain my excitement
as I parked the car and headed in for a day of shopping.
Back in the days when I worked outside the home,
my office was only 9 minutes from here.
Ahh…those were the days…
Of course, at this mall,
I knew I would be doing a lot more window shopping
than actually buying
but that was fine with me.
Anything is better than
running around the yard after a pooping puppy!
Short Hills Mall mixes high end stores such as
With more realistic stores such as

The mall is about 30 minutes outside of New York City
but in New Jersey
we don’t pay sales tax on clothing
so you get the best of both worlds.
After trying on some shoes I couldn’t afford
I headed to Restoration Hardware
to view their new pieces in person.
Check out their entrance…
What a gorgeous store!
Lots of grays…
Needless to say,
I couldn’t afford anything there.
But it sure was fun to look!
Then I headed to Pottery Barn!
More grays here…
And some reds too.
I spent the day in dressing rooms
and I took my time soaking in the beautiful displays.
I only bought a colorful scarf at the Gap
and a monogrammed mug at Anthropologie for my friend.
But having time to myself to just drool over gorgeous things
made the trip worth it!
Do you have any great malls
or shopping centers you visit as a treat to yourself?
