So yesterday I went out shopping.......not for groceries ... or for the lil one... or for the house or Sir Steve ........ I went shopping for ME. I wanted to get some funky bohemian type clothes -- well definitely some new leggings and a couple of new sweaters.
I had been looking forward to this shopping trip which in itself was amazing! I got the lil one on the bus to school and came home and got dressed up......... did my hair and put make up on. In my head I looked like this as I left the house for this great shopping adventure...........
I spent 2 hours shopping......... I was getting more and more frazzled.......so many racks and rows of clothes I felt like I was going round in circles. I saw a nice dark blue sweater and I just grabbed it and threw it in the cart. I found leggings on sale for $10 and grabbed 3 pairs (one grey ... one dark blue with wee flowers on them .. and one leopard spotted) I found a nice brown sweater. I picked up some eye liner and lipstick ...... oh yeah and I bought a new sexy bra ... soft dove grey with lace. AND I didn't try one thing on.
After 2 hours I was done -- done like dinner!!! As I walked to my car I glanced at my reflection in a shop window............... this is what looked back at me.................
Frazzled -- hair sticking up all over the place -- my lipstick chewed up -- my scarf flapping in the breeze.
I came home exhausted!!! but I persevered and tried on the clothes -- first the soft brown sweater -- it's ok -- looks better with a brown/grey scarf I have...... tried on the blue sweater figuring it would be perfect....... BUT there was something wrong -- WTF -- it had no sides???!!! I must have it on wrong -- must be some trick to this.......... except there wasn't any trick -- it was a bloody poncho!! a turtle neck poncho!! (le sigh - now I have to go back to the shops and return it)
Life is good when you have great shopping adventures and live to tell about it
