Have you seen Confessions of a Shopoholic? I saw it last Friday night, via Netflix, and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it!

I have at least three friends who are borderline shopaholics…they get an endorphin rush through shopping. It’s their favorite recreational activity.

Confessions is a humorous look at a very serious problem…debt…and the main point is that she was loving something that couldn’t love her back.

Afterwards, I realized there was nothing offensive in the movie. Not one swear word, no sex scenes, only one time when an engaged couple was in bed…trying to go to sleep. The book its based on is a little raunchy, so I was happily impressed with Hollywood for bringing up the standard. Definitely appropriate for girls 13 and up.

But it sure made me realize my wardrobe needs work.
