Happy President's Day

Hail to the Chief and great one-day sales!
Thank you, Mr. Presidents of the past for being so awesome that many of us get the day off from work/school and that retail stores give me incentive to buy new clothes.
Gap - 44% off entire purchase (honoring all 44 presidents)
Limited - 40% off entire purchase even sale items
Ann Taylor Loft - 25% off entire full-price purchase
JCrew Outlet - extended online purchase time and free shipping on all purchases

Heather and I plan to go for quick shopping walk down King Street this afternoon.  I will share any and all of my purchases soon.  There is no way I can go in a store and not purchase something.

In all seriousness, the men that have lead our country have fostered freedom, liberty, and the American spirit.  Each President has left a legacy in one form or another - some better than others.  They have been resilient and steadfast in their endeavors to bring about a nation that holds the basic civil liberties of all people in the highest regard.  Their backgrounds have been as varied as the people they governed.  Through the years, those backgrounds and experiences had shaped the modern Presidency.

  1. Hi Ashton,

    So jealous of the sales you have going on now... I wish more than anything I could teleport myself to the states for a few hours (or days) to shop :)

    And about Presidents' Day, thank you so much for your post as well as your unbiasty (is that a word?). You are right, each president has left something behind and while we all have our opinions, in my opinion being president is the hardest job in the world and has contributed toward the greater image that is America.

    Thanks for sharing!
    ps my email is finchjenna@yahoo.com :)
