Where do you LIKE to spend your money? By the way, I am enjoying these lists of 25, I hope you are. All of these 25s were first inspired by my appearance on 25peeps which I am still "hanging" in there sans my head. As one of my blogger friends noted making lists of 25 can be hard. I find it is forcing me to think -- in a good way. In an ironic turn of events, I chose a new nail polish color yesterday. Eerily, I turned the bottle upside down - it's name was "Quarter of a Century."

WFW: you sure got a lot of Ritzy stuff among the 25. ditto for Norstroms and Victoria's No Secret. As for me (although you didn't ask about it) among my top 25 (in no order - jus' kinda divergent thinking) are Jack's Peak, in front of my computer looking out the window at the beautiful trees and greenery, anyplace where I am sharing experiences with my five grandkids (three girls and two boys), shooting squirrels for the frying pan, watching my chicks grow, the mailbox when I get my monthly annuity check, the woodpile as I cut firewood with my trusty old double-bitted axe, sitting in my big truck, visiting my descendents gravesites (they are all buried in one graveyard going back three generations and my fruit orchard. Each place has multiple stories - some joyous, others contemplative. I enjoy your 25s - gives me the chance to use this old noggin. Old Baldy

Yo: Seems like Old Baldy noted his favorite places regardless of whether he spent money on them or not. For example, how did he spend money in his family's grave sites? Maybe for flowers?? Not being critical - just wondering. If it is the places where I spent money, well then Yellowstone would rate up there pretty high. Also, I highly enjoy buying handmade cowboy boots.

I use to do Starbuckumups but stopped when I learned about the trash they were putting in their food (transfats and dairy products from drugged cows). Who needs it?? You may want to consider locating Starbuckumups much lower on your priority list!

Isn't Nordstrom's just the lovliest store? I don't shop retail anymore but when I did, I loved their sales. It's a great spot for work clothes. Sounds like we have traveled some similar circles, darlin'. I thought so. Savannah is so beautiful. I like everything up that low country coast. Excellent choices for shopping.

I'm with you on VS and Whole Foods but what about Trader Joe's? Especially for a gal who likes to cook to relax like me!
