*Warning: Girly stuff ahead. Men, I’ll see you next post*
I’m not a big fan of shopping. I like buying new things, but I don’t like the effort I have to put into getting them. That’s why I love shopping online. Clothes come right to my door, I can try it on in the comfort of my own home whenever I feel like it, and don’t have to deal with crowds, dressing rooms, driving, and parking.
With that said, yesterday I did more shopping than I’ve done in the past two years (not including Christmas shopping for others).
If you want to spend a ton of money, I highly recommend shopping with Michelle. She knows only two phrases:
I hate disappointing her, plus she’s a mom, so you have to do what she says.
Michelle and I went to Florida Mall. She picked me up, which was a total bonus. I LOVE when other people drive.
Fun fact about Michelle: She is an ANGRY driver. You really have to experience riding in a car with her to understand the level of angry. And it’s not just when she’s driving, She’s angry when others are driving too.
When we arrived, Michelle channeled her inner child with an Orange Julius and I got a mini Banana Cream Pie blizzard and a Diet Coke. (Michelle thought that was hilarious.) I got that same blizzard on my honeymoon in Hawaii and it was better than my favorite (Oreo). So I’ve been waiting over 2 years to have it again. I finally give in and it wasn’t as good as I remembered. My friend Chris pointed out that a Brussel Spouts blizzard would taste better in Hawaii.
I also highly recommend Florida Mall if you’re 5’9″ but enjoy hand dryers short enough for 5 year olds.
Here’s the damage that was done:
This shirt is the only thing that fit me in the store. You must be 5’2″ and weigh 80lbs to fit in anything, so I bought it on principle. ($12.80)
I LOVE the Asian necklace. SO cute. And so me.
- Asian necklace: $2.80
- Leaf necklace: $3.80
- Earrings: $3.80
- Turquoise necklace: $3.80
Michelle and I bought the same jeans so we could start “Operation Twinsy” and do our home-movie remake of Parent Trap. These were on sale for half price: $35.00. I love me some Gap jeans.
I know. Impossible to tell us apart.

Everything in the store is 40% off right now (no coupon necessary). I don’t remember the prices of these, but I’m sure they were more than the $5.00 I like to spend on any article of clothing.
Salmon colored dress: $35.00. I think it needs a brown belt or something now that I see it on me. I do think the Spiderpig poster helps accentuate the look.
These shorts are light pink and I can’t remember the price. I know they look like they used to be white and I’ve been wearing them for years, but rest assured they are new.
Big clunky ring ($10) so when I wear it, every guy I know will say, “that’s a big ring.”
Happens every time.
I wish they had these shorts in more colors because I would have bought more. They had white, but my Hello Kitty underwear would show through.
I think this one was $20.00. This dress is way cuter in person.
Now my wallet looks like this except it’s pink and there’s not a strange man opening it up.
Since we are on the topic of new clothes, I bought a dress online last week and it finally came in the mail.
I have no occasion to wear it. At all. I just loved it and saw a purchase button and clicked. It’s a little small, but I’m too lazy to return it. So I’ll pretend I’m going to lose that 10lbs I’ve been trying to lose for 2 years now so I’ll be able to fit in it when the occasion presents itself.
I need a tan.
Eh, close enough.
What did you buy this weekend?
