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!

    That was worth the trip! Last pair of jeans I bought were several sizes smaller than before. When I wear them, I feel good. I get nice comments. But nothing would get me out of the house on Black Friday. That's a day to relax and enjoy my dear husband.
