So I’m sure you are probably thinking this another pun like in my teaddiction.
But it is not a pun, but about my actual trip to Teavana.
So a couple weeks back I took my niece and mother to the big mall in the next city. It has a ton of stores, ones we don’t have in my town.
So something I do every time is consider buying a teddy bear from Build-a-Bear.
So let me back up a bit. When Build-a-Bear first came out I really, really, really wanted one. But my parents said it was tooo expensive for a stuffed toy so I never got one.
So every time I visit a mall that has one I consider buying one, but then I fight with myself after all I really don’t need it.
Tempting but no
This time we were at the store and they had a great deal on the animals. You saved ten dollars if you bought two. I was really planning on it until I saw the cutest Ewok bear.
I was totally going to come back for it before I left. After all it was cute, Star Wars, and I had just gotten paid. And it was soooo cute!
We were going to come back but then my mother maneuvered us toward Teavana. I was happy as you all know how much I love tea.
Plus free samples!
The tea was great and my mother wanted to buy some. So she headed in the back while I was looking for a trash can. I then went to the back when the guy was asking me what tea I wanted to buy.
I was about to tell him it wasn’t for me but my mom, when I looked around and she had disappeared.
She had tricked me. She took me there, got the salesman all prepped and now I was going to have to buy the tea.
And of course I had no tin to put it on so I had to buy one of those. Pretty much I ended up dropping a larger wad than I was planning.
And I couldn’t buy that adorable Ewok.
Oh well, at least I know one thing that will make me feel better:
And watch out for your mothers, they be tricky.
