Black Friday Was Not So Black
Saturday, November 26, 2011
I'm not much for shopping the day after Thanksgiving. I don't get excited about searching out the deals or waiting in line for stores to open. There's no way I will get up early to brave the crowds - honestly, I enjoy sleep so much more than shopping, there's just no contest.
But yesterday, I had 1 store I needed to get to. My little boy needed jeans and some long sleeve shirts, and this particular store had a great deal going. I worked it out with hubby and he agreed that we'd load up our boys, he'd drop me off so I could run in without trying to hunt down a parking space, and I could speed through and get the things I wanted.
And that's what we did. While I was rushing through the kids' section, I swung by the women's jeans. I only have 2 pair that fit me right now, because I've shrunk enough. I figured since women's jeans were on sale too, it wouldn't hurt to try a couple on really quick. So I did. And found that a pair 1 size smaller than the ones I'm wearing right now actually fit me!!! That made me walk to the check out with a big ol' smile on my face. Happy girl, that was me. Now, I'm doubly excited to get my workout consistency back to where it needs to be. Whoo hoo!
