Prissy Monkey

Today, while I was out getting my favorite smoothie, I took a moment to stop at Ross.  I just wanted to see if they had any Prissy Monkey shirts before I return SloMo's to her.  No luck.  I'm just gonna have to suck it up and kiss this cutie goodbye.  [It looks way better on SloMo anyway]

Well, that 'moment' turned into an hour.  Afterall, we're talking about Ross here!  I did get a few t-shirts as I was trying to stock up on more dogwalking clothes.  When I couldn't find pants I was looking for in the Juniors section, I browsed through the Boys rack.  I found things faster there than I ever have.  It was quick and painless.  Nothing like rummaging through piles of women's jeans.  Oooh, and I got a couple of zip-up hoodies for the fall.

I have never heard of this store. I Have to look it up now and see if its located in NY. Great pics Robbie! Did you all know eachother in real life or meet after knowing eachother here? Yes I'm very nosy sometimes. : )

krobbie67 said...

Wow that Robbie takes great pics. :-D

I showed my sister-in-law these pics when I went there on vacation. She wanted to know if you were shooting me the finger in the lower left one. LOL! I told her, "No, she's just bitching me out." LOL!

At least I can delete the "Freee file" now. I was wondering if the CD worked for you.  :-) ---Robbie

Freee, I decided to look online for Prissy Monkey tees, I had no success, sorry. But, if you put that in the search it comes up with the slomo's shopping entry!  It was fun to search even if it was unsuccessful.  I've been looking online for a tee shirt that my daughter found back in Indiana and couldn't get due to low funds and now she can't find the tee anywhere out here.  It was something about being a hottie rescue, with a red cross like lifeguards wear on it. It's hard to describe.  But, it really was cute.  Hope you find that tee cuz it looks really cute on you!

Is this "Ross" place only in the West? I never heard of it.

slowmotionlife said...

I've been looking here too.  No luck.  :(

alphawoman1 said...

I love that t-shirt!

ann7inflorida said...

Ya gotta love Ross!

jcgeorgiapeach said...

I'm not much on cutesy shirts with pictures...however, I love that shirt!  I'll keep an eye out here at Ross for one, just in case.  

BTW...was looking at those dogs and thinking, "dang, those dogs look just like Ellie and Scout."   I should really wake up before I start reading journals in the mornings.  ~Peachy

judithheartsong said...

babyshark28 said...

LOL!  love that shirt. I haven't even heard of prissy monkey :p cute.
Love the pictures of you walking the dogs, gives me an idea of you in action!  The one of you with your hand up, for some reason, reminds me of something...mob-ish.  I can hear you yelling "hey! robbie!  watch ya' doin' over dere?"    LOL.  are you Italian?  
ok...making note.  take a trip to Ross. :D

deabvt said...

REDHDKA - Ross hasn't quite made its way to the Northeast yet.  I never heard of it till I moved here [but I've been here for 12 yrs now, so that could mean nothing].  But it's a GREAT store.  For some reason it's only place I can find clothes.  I never find anything at Marshall's or JC Penney [or any of those other places].  And I don't usually like to shop.  But I can get LOST in Ross. :)

ROBBIE - Yeah, the CD works.  Sorry, thought I told you.  And yeah, you take great pics.  But was I really bitching you out in that picture?  Were we in Phoenix at that point?

MONICA - You are so funny.  I always check for things like this online before giving up.  Yet, I hadn't before posting this entry.  Did you also notice what ELSE comes up in a 'prissy monkey' search?  eek - ick - lol.  I'll keep an eye out for that hottie rescue tee for your daughter. :)

freeepeace said...

LOVIE CONNISH <-- [c'mon, how cute is that?]  I've looked everywhere online.  Nothing - so far.  But I'm determined.

COY - I keep washing the shirt - and then wearing it again.  It's been over a month.  I really need to return it.  Thing is, our recent house cleaners may have shrunk it even more.  I'd been hanging it to dry lately - but they put it in the dryer [with everything else].  Ugh.

MARY - I love hoodies too.  And even more, zip-up ones.  I can tell I'm gonna be living in these this season.  And I had to laugh at your question - only because I can't even imagine having a barbell in my nose.  But I can see how it looks that way in the picture.  It's a ring.  I'll try to find a better pic to show you.

freeepeace said...

SHARKY - Haahaa!  "mob-ish" - You are too funny.  I am part Italian.  And apparently I was "bitching Robbie out" in that picture.  I'll have to work on my Noo-Yawk Italian Accent. :P  And YES, go to Ross...look for that shirt!!  Buy many if you see them [juniors - size L]

VINCE - Thanks.  Hunny says Hi.

RYANAGI - I did that last night.  The company is WEAVERS GIRL.  I found some of their stuff - on eBay and at Kohl's online.  But nothing nearly as cute as this prissy monkey tee.  I'll keep looking though.

TRICIA - Yep.  Got my nose pierced...umm...5? 6? years ago?  Definitely a rite of passage.  Hurt like hell.  I don't even notice it anymore. I forget it's even there.  And it doesn't hurt at all.  If you get it done, be sure to go to a professional place with sterile or brand new needles.  Not some back-alley smokey dirt barn like I did.  lol  [what was I thinking???]

freeepeace said...

PEACHY - Yeah, will you start a search party for this shirt?  If anyone can make that happen, it's you!  And I'm not usually a decal kinda gal.  But this is different.

JUDI - Woohoo...the search party has begun.

BARBIE - LOL - SloMo's entry comes up first ... but check way at the bottom of the search.  Please help us find these shirts so I don't have to see the hardcore porn search results anymore!

freeepeace said...

SARAH - Discounts on hoodies???  Bring it on chickie!  I'm all about getting a good deal on good quality.

ANGELA - Ross started in the west I believe.  It's making its way across the country.  But I don't see any stores in the Northeast...yet.  Come to LA.  I'll take you to all the discount hot-spots.

SLOMO - Keep looking.  If you find them, buy in bulk.  I'll send yours back ASAP.

ALPHA-MARY - I so hope I find them somewhere.  When's your birthday?

ANN - Ya just gotta!  And I always say it with flair... Rosssss, Dresssss for Lessss!

kathlyna22 said...

what is this Ross you ladies talk of?!?!
I want to play too!

ggal3133 said...

I love Ross! I miss it too since they don't have any here in my area now :(

grassriver said...

Prissy Monkey is so cute! I don't blame you for not wanting to part with her.
I love Ross, but from afar - they don't have Ross's here. Somehow though, I think I'll recover. :o)

visionarydiva1 said...

Cool shirt. I had never heard of these shirts before now. They are cute.

andreakingme said...

Hey, you Prissy Monkey t-shirt wearing woman! I've been lazy lately. Haven't commented in some of the Journals I've been reading. Meep.

Anyway. I wondered what the Prissy Monkey shirt was the first time you mentioned it, so I'm glad you've posted it in all its glory now. Too friggin cute!

And ... wow, look at how closely those pouches are walking together. I guess they really DO love each other.

freeepeace said...

KATHLEEN - Ross Dress for Less.  It's a discount department store.  Name brands at dirt cheap prices.  Not that I care about name brands...actually, I'd much rather NOT.  But, the clothes are in my price range.

GGAL - ::gasp::  What does one do without a Ross in the area?

KELLI - I don't know what I'd do if I moved away from a Ross.  But you can live vicariously through my Ross-entries. :P

VISIONARYDIVA - I can't find a single shirt like this one.  But, alas, it's not mine.  And I'm packing it up to send it back to its original owner.

ANDREA - Keep your eye out for 'prissy monkey' merchandise.  It's way too cute to pass up.  And just so you know, those dogs are walking close together because I have them on a splitter.  Notice, one long lead/leash, connected to a ring that has two shorter leads on it.  Keeps them from pulling me in all different directions.  They just end up pulling each other.  But yes, they DO love each other!!
