St. Louis Ramblings...


St. Louis was loads of fun. I think my mom was worried that Sister #1 and I would not be able to find our way around town. We did, thanks to my Garmin. Although, a couple times my Garmin had to "recalculate" because we took wrong turns. Correction: WE did not take wrong turns, the road she wanted us to take no longer exist. I'm not joking. St. Louis has done some major road work.

The three of us hit three malls and even ventured downtown to see the Arch. I made my mom and Sister #1 walk around the Arch and the park around the Arch. I felt bad that the only sights they were seeing were shopping malls. It made us seem shallow, and we're not.

LB left a comment wanting to know where we ate while in St. Louis. We ate at: Subway and White Castle. I know, I know we like to live it large. I guess we were focused on shopping so much that we just ate what was in sight, which happened to be Subway in one of the food courts, and White Castle which was across the street from where we rented our car. It was our first time to eat at White Castle. It was pretty good.

The St. Louis Airport, I rank you very high on my list of Great Airports. I normally do not rank small airports so high, but it's a good airport. They done some remodeling and added some good restaurants. I highly recommend a layover at this airport. However Southwest Airlines, I rank you low. I DO NOT like that some of your employees talked to me like I'm stupid!!! I am not stupid. I am a very good traveler and I have experience in traveling! It's kind of a hobby. Hopefully, this is my last flight with you guys.

Blogger World, I have a new favorite store. I realize you can't keep track of all my favorite stores. Heck, even I can't keep track, but I want it noted that I love Anthropologie. Now, I also want it noted that I cannot afford Anthropologie. I found the cutest sweater at Anthropologie-CUTEST. If I were rich and didn't have to pay bills, taxes, gas, aerobics fees, Starbucks habits, running shoes, or food I would totally buy the sweater. I mean, look at it....
Wouldn't it look wonderful on me? I know your answer is yes. Now, I'm the kind of shopper that will splurge on cute unusually things. However, this sweater is $98. I couldn't bring myself to pay $98 for the cute flower power sweater. Even looking at it again, I still really want it.

Overall, we all had a great time. It was a fun day. I believe Sister #1 and my mom enjoyed their short amount of time in St. Louis, and I enjoyed visiting H&M.

You know that I absolutly LUV SWA, so don't be knocking your overall perception on one rude employee! They are still a great airline - so be sure and give them another chance. Remember, I am a huge fan and say all the time I should call and ask where my paycheck is from them because I tell the world about them and their credit card - an easy way to rack up a free flight!

I'm so glad you had a great trip (minus the flight). We tend to fly SWA a lot because they're cheap. Sometimes they're funny, sometimes not so much. Over all they get us where we need to be.

I agree that the sweater is cute but not worth giving up your gas or electric bill. ;o)

Axe'em Jacks- It happened last time I flew with SWA. It's the ticket people, not the flight crew.

Renee- It was a great trip. Thanks for the support about the sweater. I almost had a weak moment.

LB-SHUT UP! Why do you guys get everything?

Anthropologie is another one of my wife's favourite stores, I'm kind of partial to it myself. Not for shopping - my wife returns half the stuff she buys for herself so no way would I try to shop for her - but because it's an interesting place to be while the wife is shopping because they have lots of cool things in there that are not clothes :)

Plus they have comfy seats in the change room foyer for hubbys to sit down and relax while wives are trying things on. And the girls always write your name on the change room door. Well they write my wife's name on the nameplate on the door, which makes it more personal when they use your name when they ask how you're doing.

I don't think your St. Louis shopping trip was shallow. You spent a day with your Mom & S1 doing the things you all enjoy doing. You had bonding/quality time, and that's a good thing :)

I love the sweater.

I don't recommend flying United Airlines either. They leave you stranded on the runway in Chicago and then suggest a flight to San Fransico when I needed to get back to OKC. They don't know their geography or I might have made the flight to Tulsa.
