I am not usually the souvenir type. Buying overpriced things just seems like hype to me. That being said, whenever you go on a trip without the kids, you HAVE to bring them back something.
When we were walking the strip we went into a little shop. We found a couple of cute stuffed monkeys that had magnets in their hands and feet. My kids love magnets and they like stuffed animals. A total win win!
As I was checking out I saw something pink and sparkly out the corner of my eye. It was an overpriced travel coffee mug. I went ahead and justified the purchase with 2 key points:
- I drink and drive (coffee that is)
- It’s PINK and SPARKLY!
How could pink and sparkly WITH coffee NOT put you in a good mood?
Swipe…went the card.
I can so easily be bought when things are pink and sparkly.
The cat was another souvenir I justified when I went to Culebra, Puerto Rico in 2011. I love that cat!
I found it fitting that the only 2 souvenirs I have, were on my desk.
I was a bit lazy this morning. My flash was all the way on the other side of the room, so I decided to up my ISO instead of grabbing my flash. I think it’s good to not rely on flash all the time.
It’s funny how justification works, huh? Actually, Culebra wasn’t really expensive. I loved Puerto Rico!
I played with my settings and the lamp on my desk for lighting. I think it worked, but that is why it has a little noise in the photo
