I have done my duty to help boost the economy of South Carolina...........

I shopped until I dropped today, Thursday!!!!

Luckily it was a miserable cold day, only the most hardy were walking on the beach, and then they were bundled up. Never saw anyone sitting on the beach, mind you as we were out most of the day I maybe missed someone?

Anyhow we went to the Tanger Outlet in North Charleston. It may not look like much but boy did I have a good time, and did I get some good deals!!!!! The best deal I can't say anything about but you will learn about it later on in the year, suffice to say I saved a good $400 in that store. I am so dying to tell you but I can't.........really I can't.......sorry.

Then another store Kitchen Gourmet have having a major clearance sale, with an extra 50% off clearance prices. I got one of the large George Foreman grills for $20, just like this one I picked up this Cuisinart Coffee maker for $40.

Went to the Nike store and dh got Nike golf shoes, Nike running shoes, Nike golf towel and Nike zippered sweatshirt for $96. I picked up some other things as well, but nothing too exciting.

By the time you read this on Friday, we will be heading home. Dh is still not well, the weather has turned cold, even we wore coats today, and poor dh is still being eaten to death with these no see um's Plus if I stop much longer down here I am going to bankrupt dh, as I have got some super deals, and there are two other malls I still haven't been in!!!!!

Now as it was our last night, we went to a fancy dancy seafood restaurant.....turned out just to be okay, I have had worse, but I have had a lot better if you know what I mean? Anyhow, this restaurant is at the other end of the island, well guess who/what I police car, sitting all by itself with no one in it......poor thing must have ran out of gas again?????

We have enjoyed ourselves, but as they say there is no place like home. We hope to be in the Pittsburg area by Friday night, then home on Saturday. I will be checking in and posting though from the hotel.

Wow, you did have a great time shopping, maybe it is a good job you are going home, nudge, nudge, wink, wink :) Sorry to hear your dh is not feeling that chipper. Hopefully by now he has reached the turning point and is feeling a whole lot better. Safe and happy journey home. It has been fun going on holiday with you.

Did I, perhaps, shop at the "same" store when I was in the States, Gill?
