Brooke and I had our girl's day out. We went up to Park City. The plan was to go up, do a little shopping at the outlets, go check out the arts festival that was going on, eat some good food, hang out.
Husband: Stop reading here.
We went to the outlets. I wasn't even that jazzed about going to the outlets because I never find anything good at outlets. Generally I think sale prices in the regular store are better and I hate that often stores just have a crappier quality line they put out for their outlets. But I figured we could check it out for a little while.
Um. We stayed for nine hours.
I am not sure I have ever shopped that long in my entire life. Not even when I was like single and working and had money. We were a little shocked when the store locked up and we were like, "What?" Yes, we closed down the store at 9pm. We got there just after noon. I'm still wondering how that was physically possible.
But I have to admit I am super excited about some of my purchases - I even got a fantastic designer dress from BCBG for one of next year's fancy events! And that has to guarantee I get neither fat nor pregnant in the next year. (Phew.)
But. I am not super excited about facing the hubby. You can imagine the damage you can do in nine hours. Um, happy birthday to me in 3 months? And Merry Christmas? Maybe having crazy kids that you can never take shopping is a really good thing.
I even tried to call Ryan a few times during the day to warn him I might buy a dress. "Well, you need to find a balance between needs and wants," he preaches. "Oh great," I reply, "You've been reading the blog." He laughs. "So can I get the dress?" He says ok. I hesitate a little and say, "Yeah, cause I've kind of already been spending money." "How much money?" he asks. "Um, well, I just spent this much," I say. "That's all?" "Um, in one store.... Oh, wait... What? ... Uh must be a bad connection...I think I might l o s e y o u... t a l k l a t e r..."
Yeah, holy guilt!! Seriously, after my last post?
