On our way home from vacation, my husband surprised me with a stop at Tyson's Corner in McLean, Virginia so I could visit the Vera Bradley store. .
By surprised, I mean I begged and pleaded and played the "but, it's my birthday week" card.
C'mon ladies...you know what I mean.
You see, besides cookies, I have a deep rooted love for the quilted fabric handbags that come in a wide variety of bright colors.
When we arrived at the store, I was in heaven. I've never seen so much paisley in one place.
The store was having some Seventeen Magazine event with some stylist giving fashion tips, make-overs, give-aways, and, most important, cookies.
Vera Bradley cookies.
I snatched one up and gave it to my husband with strict instructions NOT to eat it.
It was just too beautiful.
This was over a week ago and the cookie is still sitting on my kitchen counter.
I just can't bring myself to take a bite.
