Friday Five Answers (a little late)

::Andrea's Friday Five::

1. Do you like to shop? Why or why not?
Yes, bc I was born to shop. I love bargain shopping. I never buy anything unless it's marked down. I'm very thrifty. My weakness is antiques! Love'em!

2. What was the last thing you purchased?
A movie for Stephen

3. Do you prefer shopping online or at an actual store? Why?
I don't mind buying books, CDs or movies online, but clothing, etc, I want to try it on, feel it. 

4. Did you get an allowance as a child? How much was it?
No, but I was allowed one treat a week. When I was really young, my choice was candy. When I got older, I got one magazine a week. Usually one of those, teen beat mags or something like that.   

5. What was the last thing you regret purchasing?
My white couch. As a parent, what on earth was I thinking? Somebody should've stopped me!

Too funny...I have a white couch's white leather so I justified it to myself by telling myself I could wipe it clean...until the first time Ikenna got some ink on it...which his father had to remove :)

Love to shop here ... cheers me up. My weakness is stained glass items and antiques. :) Sweat pants for working out at the gym ~ bought today, books, airline tickets ~ online, clothes in stores, no allowance like you when little a treat and when older I worked in my dad's business and earned tips, no regrets at this moment. :)

LoL Slip covers! You should go for one of those really tacky see-thru plastic covers. Make everyone squeek when they sit down. Lots of fun there! :P

I loved Teen Beat magazine. I always had all the posters tacked on my walls. Drove my mother crazy! Fun entry, Mia. I love it.

Shwoo ... brought back some memories here of a grape stained ivory couch. Remembered to something like "American Girl?" And, can't say enough about weakness for antiques ... Do you have a favorite "age?" Our love, Ann
