Shopping With My Granddaughter

Sarah, my granddaughter, is 13 and a half. She lives in Tennessee, and I am in Arizona, so going shopping with her is something that just doesn’t happen. Unless, of course, we are both looking at the same website, and chatting on Facebook at the same time.

Here’s me on facebook in Arizona

Sarah on Facebook in Tennessee











I was looking at, a site that has some cute clothing. While I can’t wear the styles they offer, I was sure that Sarah would find something she liked. So, I gave her a $40 budget to “go shopping”.

I had asked her if she liked this Blue Pony Laptop Shoulder bag:

I thought this was a cute bag


But wow, was I wrong about what I thought she would like. She picked the Glossy Silver Ruffled Shoulder Bag instead:

She’s growing up way faster than I thought!
