Sometimes

Sometimes your husband asks you to go and pick him up a little something. And sometimes you go, with really good intentions, but find yourself in the woman's department anyway.
Sometimes, you even take your two year old and three year old in the dressing room and let them sing way too loud and watch themselves dance in all the mirrors in the family sized dressing room. You try on a little something, and stare at yourself, not really seeing anything because you are trying to justify buying a new outfit.
Because really, it is only a $32 outfit, and it has been four months since you bought yourself a new item of clothing. To your husband that would be "just a little while ago." But to you, it has been well, a dog year.
You know you shouldn't, but know you will.

Sometimes, when you are driving home, you wonder if you will "casually" mention your new items, or if you will lose the receipt.

Sometimes.

Cute cute cute! Especially the red belt. Definitely lose the receipt...but then casually mention it a few months later.

Cute, cute outfit. My answer to Is that new or I don't remember that? I told you about this, you were just having that selective hearing again.

Been there, done that. Todd never notices new clothes for me, unless I walk in with the bag right in front of him - so I just put it in the closet when I get home before him and gee, I've had this for a while. Cute outfit

I know exactly what you mean! We MUST spend a little money on ourselves every once in a while, right?!!!

You deserve it! And I have some boot envy, right now, lady! Those rock!

A new outfit is always fun. I may have just 'lost' a receipt a couple of days ago.

Sometimes I'm so jealous of other people's styles! AND their amazing chandelier over their shoulder!

Kathy said...

I think I've been there and lost the receipt. :) More likely, hubby wouldn't even notice the new purchase!

lucky knitter said...

I'm in the lose the receipt camp. Love the boots!

APA said...

How come I have a feeling your hubby really wouldn't mind your new outfit? And $32? A bargain! It looks fantastic. Have fun, laugh and sing along!

Chris said...

I lose the receipt. Or leave it in the closet for awhile or the trunk of the car. My mother passed this one on to me, be sure and get the credit card statement out of the mail before he gets home. Hee Hee. Cute outfit.

I think we can all give you a big old Amen to this one. You look adorable in your new duds and fourth months is waaaayyyyy too long if you ask me.

Nantucket Dreams said...

oh honey- lose the receipt, cut the tags off in the car in the way home, sneak it into the closet and never ever tell!

Amy said...

I just want to tell you that I LOVE your blog! But I have to ask, HOW DO YOU DO IT ALL?!?! I only have 2 kids, and I can't seem to do HALF of what you do!! Do you sleep?
Thanks for sharing!
