Once a year Tim shops.
I shop at least once a month (maybe more?)
I tend to enjoy shopping alone, no kids, just me and the racks...
My store of choice? Winners (equivalent to TJ Maxx for my US friends)
I like having everything in one location...kids, home, beauty, jewelery, shoes....I browse it all!!
Tim walks into Winners...and walks out.
So to my surprise last friday...we took the kids and headed to Winners. It was bedtime for the twins and magically they chilled in the stroller...Cole snagged a "where's Waldo" book and sat searching for that infamous character. Already this was going well....
Then...magic happened...I see Tim with a pile of stuff to try on?
Golf shorts, golf shirts, running shorts, shoes, jackets, you name it..he had it.
I could NOT contain my excitement....this gave me free reign to go ahead and shop for ME!
Sundresses, blouses, running stuff, shoes...the 6 item limit was broken in about 2 minutes. I was like a wild animal searching for something, anything...sales, no sales, it did not matter, I wanted it alllllllllll.......
2.5 hours later (yes you read that right) we were at the till..the damage was done, I wore my new blouse to a party, I am wearing my new sundress to soccer tonight and I will likely wear my new running shorts for the half marathon this weekend.
His clothes are hanging in the closet...with the tags still on....and him comtemplating returning it all.
Here I thought we were making progress.
