A Happy Little Trip

It doesn't take much to make me happy sometimes. Yesterday, G and I went to Crabtree Valley Mall specifically because it's the only mall around with a Sanrio store. If you're not familiar, Sanrio is the company that makes Hello Kitty. And as most of you know, I am a bit of a fan. :P

My friend J gave me an ultra cute gift card to the Sanrio store for watching her fish, Alpha, while she was out of town for the holidays. I certainly wasn't expecting to get anything for it, but the gift card was a nice surprise. Yesterday, I decided it was time to use it! After all, my birthday is coming up and why not? So, we traveled a bit farther to get to the Sanrio store (and by farther, I mean Crabtree is a 15 minute drive while the mall across the street is... well... across the street).

I got the cutest gifts! A mechanical pencil with hello kitty in a kimono, a matching little notebook, and finally, a pencil with these little jelly-like toppers. The awesome thing about the pencil toppers is that I can rearrange them or move them from one pencil to another. They are super cute. All this cost only $10, but it left me with a huge smile on my face and a happy feeling in my heart. Sure, some people probably think I'm crazy for being a grown woman with Hello Kitty purses and pencils and notebooks, but I have loved Hello Kitty my whole life. There is so much stress and grief and drama in life sometimes that I say seize joy where you can find it. And Hello Kitty brings me joy. <3
