We had a great Thanksgiving. Eating dinner with Ernies family then dessert at Sean and Lauries. We played Taboo with everyone well into the night, I love that game-it was fun.
I wasnt even going to go shopping but Rees rolled over on me at 4:15 so I figured it was meant to be. (lol) I got dressed, without breaking my ankles on the mess in my room which was a miracle in itself. Onto brewing some coffee. I managed this without breaking anything on the mess in my kitchen. Man, from the looks of my house, you would think I had the festivities here yesterday! On my way out the door, I slipped on the newspaper that I was too lazy to pick up last night at 1 am so coffee goes everywhere. I laugh to myself and hope this isnt how the day approaching is going to go. So I leave, hoping to return to clean before my husband wakes and sees the mess in the light of day. 🙂
I am singing away to my CD as I pull into the mall parking lot. Im on a mission for Boots for me. Selfish, huh? I dont really want to buy presents yet, its stresses me out. So I go thinking I will just go see about some boots-but I would have been perfectly content if I came home with nothing.
5am- Penneys is the main one open at this time and the lines are full of people. I think to myself, “These people must still be high on Pumpkin Pie.” I compliment myself in my head for the brilliant rhyming as I push through the people with tools and pillows. Seriously, pillows. I think they are wishing they were in bed still. Nothing grabs my eye here.
5:25am- Sears. I found boots!!!!! $79 black boots for $19.99 and oh, my they have my size. I think its kind of funny because they put the boots I wanted in the middle of the isle so I had to try them on there. I was laughing as I tried them on, half hoping they just zip over my calf. I have never tried on these knee high boots before. Sweet victory. Im outta there.
6 am-I stroll up to Macys just as they open the doors. Nice. I entered and saw the boots in the ad. Try on a pair-last pair of 9’s ha-ha-ha (crazy 4am mall shopper laugh.) $70 boots for $27 minus my $10 coupon from the paper. So Brown Boots total $17.98. Oh ya! Left the mall by 6:20.
….and Im home with my kitchen cleaned before Ernie woke up!
