Shopping day with a 19-year-old birthday girl

Some of you who've been reading this blog for years may remember this little girl. Well, niece Cari turned 19 last week and decided to come here to Newnan for a shopping day.

So here are my sister Rhonda, Cari's mom, and myself out at Ashley Park, our "lifestyle center" that gets a lot of out-of-town visitors. Cari used her birthday money and gift cards to buy the typical 19-year-old's favorite treats: clothes, shoes, and jewelry. She also wanted to go to Charming Charlie, so we did.

And my sister immediately spotted this travel mug and turned to me and said, "You need this." My sister isn't one for impulse purchases, but she was right about this. 

If you're having trouble reading it, it says, "I like to party and by party I mean stay home and drink tea." This mug is absolutely perfect for a tea-loving introvert like myself, and it's a fun souvenir of my day helping Cari celebrate turning 19!


  1. I love the mug! How great that you could shop with your sister and niece to celebrate this special birthday.

  2. Happy Birthday, Cari! Very cute tea-themed travel mug too!

  3. A very nice way to spend the day, with your sister and niece! I see your sister has the shopping radar too! I have already contacted the only CC in fifty miles, they have one in stock. Fortunately, my friend lives in that town, and is visiting me on Sunday. Thanks for the alert!

  4. I think that mug is the perfect travel companion to enjoy your tea! And....a special reminder of your day celebrating your niece's birthday each time you take a sip.

  5. Your family shopping day sounds like fun way for your niece to celebrate her birthday! And that is a perfect mug for you.
