we are leaving tomorrow to go to joe’s grandmother’s house for the weekend. the whole family’s going, and we’re going out saturday night to celebrate nana’s birthday. i’m always the frumpy one of the kids. no matter what i wear, my sil always manages to look cuter.
so yesterday, i hit the internet to find someone super cute to wear. and i did. i found a flowered halter top at old navy for $7.99. i picked out that, a pair of capris and a pair of red sandals, but before i submitted my order i called the local old navy store to make sure they didn’t have the top in stock. i was told they didn’t have any halter tops in stock, so i confirmed my order with *gasp* next day shipping. i’ve never done that before, but i was determined to look good.
tonight after work, joe and i headed to the outlet mall in calhoun to see what other deals we could find. and what did i find at old navy? the exact halter top they told me they didn’t have. grr. i also found some super cute tube tops, and i got a pair of capris and a pair of bermuda shorts. everything but one was on 50 percent clearance, so i think i did pretty well.
now i have many options to choose from for saturday night, though joe likes the magenta top the best. i’m partial to the blue one myself.
but, i’m still mad about the miscommunication and i’m going to be kicking myself for a while for next-day shipping which really was a waste now. and now, i’ll have to find time to take back what i ordered online. on the bright side, i discovered that i ordered the wrong size online (they really should put in the description that women with big boobs should get a larger size), and now i’m guaranteed to look cute all weekend. and that’s really what we were going for anyway, wasn’t it?
