It’s Anna. This week’s theme on Seven Cool Tweens is “Win-Win”. So I’m going to show you when I’m on a shopping spree.

Let’s get started.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Anna: “I’m very tired. I need to relax.”
TV Announcer: “E-mail me now to have chance to win a one-thousand dollar ($1,000) shopping spree for twenty-four (24) hours. Email me now.”
Anna: “Oh gee, I have to enter. I’ve been wanting to go shopping forever.

Okay, the email is send. I really hope I win.”

. . . Later . . .

Anna: “Okay, I think I’m going to check my email.

Oh my gosh! I’ve won! Oh my gosh, I’m so excited!

It’s already late today—I think I’m going to hit the mall tomorrow.

I’m so excited!”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


I’ve already got the money from the contest, and we’re on the way to the mall.

I’m so excited!

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Yes, we’re finally here. I can’t wait to start going shopping.

This dress is so cute. And I absolutely love these pants. I’m going to go try them on.

I really like these pants. And this sweater.

And down the escalator I go.

I have to stop and get something to eat: yum, yum, yum.

Time to shop in some of my favorite stores.

You can always go for something casual and comfy like this . . . but you can never go wrong with a flannel. And this cute shirt would be perfect for school. This dress would be perfect for going out to dinner.

Next I decided to stop at Justice’s to look for pieces for my Halloween costume. There are a lot of bright-colored and sparkling clothes here. Tank tops galore . . . There’s practically one in every color.

Next, I went looking for some new colanders. I really like the white one. This shoe store had a lot of tennis shoes to choose from.


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


I had such a great time at the mall. And I got a bunch of new clothes. Plus, today was a really pretty day.

It was a total win-win.

After a long day of shopping, I’m really tired. But I’m super glad I won the shopping spree. I wonder what I’m going to wear tomorrow.
