Be Still My Heart

This morning took Zander and I to the great city of Appleton. We had to do some shopping for Andy, as well as fill a goody box for my Blogging By Mail partner. I had so much fun picking out a few goodies to include with my homemade goodies. I managed to get it out in the mail too, so watch for it Swap Buddy!

And while the shopping for random bits of goodness was fun, there was one particular moment that was exhilirating. Yes, I said exhilirating. After pulling out of World Market's parking lot, we rounded the building, and lo and behold, what caught my eye, but this:




AHHHHHHH!!!! Marshall Field's has officially become Macy's here in Appleton! If I hadn't been feeling all woozy from some Benedryl, Zander and I would have stopped instantly. I love Macy's. My heart starts beating faster just thinking about walking in there. And even though I've been in that building several times before when it was Marshall Fields, and Daytons before that, there will be something special about going to Macy's. One step into the store and it will be like a welcome home to me. Now I'm trying to plan a Mom's day out where I can just go and spend a few hours by myself. It may be awhile...

My School is right next to Marshall Field's (now known as Macy's) and it will always be Marshall Field's for me.

The other day I saw that Tyler Florence will be at the Locations downtown Chicago in the End of September - I am so looking forward to that!

Hi Erika. :) Our Kauffman's just turned into a Macy's too. Looks like they've been very busy all over the country!

*sigh*

It's going to be a long while until I get to enjoy Macy's. Andy was put on lay-off notice this morning. He has 3 or 4 more weeks and then nada...

Thanks Gabriella.

I just wish they'd of held off until I got my litle shopping spree in. :-) Now I have to be practical. What fun is that. ;-)
