Katie's new rolling duffel from Land's End arrived last night. Ordered last week when I got a 'free shipping' offer. Because this duffel was $149 compared with the beautiful Tumi one for over $500. She wasn't sure she should get it monogrammed (those probably won't be my initials forever), but I convinced her - after all, for $149, if the bag makes it through Europe this summer she's probably recouped her investment. And she'll get luggage when she gets married anyway, right? So there's a monogram on the top.
And Marc played with the bag (love how guys will "play" with stuff like duffel bags - he tried out all the zippers, opened up the pockets, rolled it around) this morning and was very impressed - well made, rolls well, lots of room inside. And I had another free shipping offer. So I ordered an identical one (except for the monogram - mine says MRS) for myself. Should make the airports on our upcoming DR trip a little easier.
Not sure what to make of my horoscope for today, though:
Sidestep major expenditures and give your bank account a needed rest.
