Vacation Tendencies

I have a lot of pet peeves, I guess. I wouldn't necessarily think of this about myself until I start thinking of them. Last night, I became my pet peeve.

Souveniers (or "Tchotchkes" as we call them) are a must whenever I go on a trip. I generally steer toward items that are practical to my everyday life- a bag, earrings, a piece of artwork. Occasionally I will purchase the t-shirt or sweatshirt riddled with destination names and catchy slogans.

I think I mentioned in my last post that we have been surprised at the chilly night air and all were unprepared when it came to long-sleeves. So, we decided to purchase somewhat matching sweatshirts. This was a fun idea considering we live in varying states and hardly see one another.

Here comes the pet peeve... B and I went on a late night run to the store for some wine and more peanutbutter m&ms (a must have for our vacationing pleasure). Of course, it was evening and I was cold. So, I wore my new fancy shmancy sweatshirt out. I hate it when people are on vacation and they wear the new items that they have purchased at their destination. But there I was, in a Safeway grocery store, walking through the aisles with my newly purchased LAKE TAHOE sweatshirt.

Heh, I guess you can't win 'em all...
