Brighton Products...Closer Than You Could Ever Imagine! (Trust Me!)
Does anybody remember my post from 9 or 10 days ago about Brighton perfumes? I had first heard about them from Annie when she had gotten Laugh (her favorite Brighton scent) for her birthday. I was intrigued so I started looking around for these perfumes (there's 4 scents; Live, Love, Laugh and Dream). I checked every store I went to. Nope, no Brighton perfumes. And then, one day while I was shopping in Granbury, I saw the sign. No, not like a sign from above. I mean, it was pretty cool, but not that cool! What I saw was a Brighton sign. I was so excited. At last! The ever illusive Brighton perfumes were within my grasp! I really felt like I was the luckiest woman in the world - here I'd searched high and low and there it was - in a little bitty town miles from home. Wow - talk about having the Luck of the Irish, eh? Well, as it turns out...perhaps my luck wasn't really as...earth shattering as I believed it to be and maybe, just maybe Brighton wasn't as difficult to locate as I had originally thought. You see, last week I took a little trip to a local mall. I've been to this mall quite a few times over the last 2 years. In fact, I had just been there a few weeks ago, when Nick and Jodie were visiting. Apparently, however, I don't actually open my eyes when I'm traipsing through the mall. If I did, I would have known that this was located there: Yep. An entire Brighton store. Right there. At the mall I frequent most. Although, in my defense, I will say that "frequent" is a relative term. It may be the mall I go to the most, but that's not to say I actually go to malls a whole heck of a lot. Still. The store has been there all along. I know because I went in and asked. Yeah - they've been there for about 6 years. Who knew? So, while I was still reeling from the knowledge that I am a big, fat, huge, blind dork, I was in enough control of my emotions to stifle my sobs of disbelief and take advantage of the fact that I was actually standing in a store that sold all things Brighton! And here's the best part! Brighton, being the savvy company that they are, has a lovely little thing you can fill out called a Wish List. Not only can you fill it out, the wonderful Brighton personnel will even call anyone and everyone you want them to, to remind them of those special little dates in your life...like your birthday, your anniversary, your dog's birthday...you get the idea. How's that for service? Well, you can imagine how over the moon I was at this, right? Even so, just to show you what a rock I am, I held off listing people like my mom, my father, my kids, my sister, the mailman, the guy who goes door to door selling Omaha beef steaks here in our neighborhood, etc., etc., etc., on my "to call" list and just put down Randey's name. And cell phone number. And work number. Oh and his e-mail address. Both work and personal. Don't want to leave anything to chance, now do I? And then I spent a little time writing down the names of some Brighton products that I'm fairly certain will enrich my life immeasurably. Oh okay. Maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration. But they'll make me pretty flippin' happy, that's for sure! A Brighton store right around here. My goodness. Will wonders never cease?
