Faux Anthro

I had a little problem solving to do on vacation:

Beach House 20 miles from Anthropologie
+ Shower Gift Needed For Abbie
.............................................................................
No Thinking Necessary


After purchasing her gift and forgetting to ask for gift wrap, I watched forlornly as the saleslady wrapped another gift. I figured she would think I was lying when I sighed at how perfectly it was wrapped and then said, "By the way, my purchase really is for a gift." Those waif-like Anthropologie girls intimidate me.

So, I watched her closely.

And then went home and totally copied it.

I felt so McMaster and Storm'ish.

Are you serious??? So when I started reading this post...I breathed a sigh of relief, thinking, oh...good...she didn't wrap Abbie's gift on her own...Anthropologie did it...no wonder it was so stinkin cute...then you just had to add the second part of the post, that of course, said that you went home and did it yourself...this is such a love/hate relationship...and that is why I love you sooo much!

Whewww maybe it was a blessing that I didn't get to go to Abbie's shower cause walking in with my Taget bag and cheesey paper might have been a little embarassing!
