What is it about shopping for other people that suddenly makes it okay to "lot loose" and buy things for yourself that you would usually never splurge on?
I bought this super sweet heather colored cardigan at Old Navy today. I <3 the color, but it was 30 bucks! The rational side of me knows that it will probably go on sale for at least 50% off in like a month (or less!), but the cray cray side of me wanted it NOW. And so I have it NOW. I'm going to wear it this weekend :)
Now, I know what you are thinking (scratch that. I hope that you are thinking) that some cardigan from Old Navy isn't exactly a crazy splurge. And you know what? That is exactly what I told myself to justify that purchase. And so I agree with you. Thanks for being on my side :)
Oh. And I don't even need to work on justifying the full price chocolate color cords I got. I NEEDED them so I could stop almost getting in trouble at work for wearing jeans on the weekends. That is a work related expense. I'm pretty sure its even tax deductible. So really I'm saving money on that one. Mmmhmm.
On the total upside:
+We got awesome presents for other people
+I got to spend all day with Brian!!!!!
+I got my shopping fix for probably the next 6 months
+Endless salad at Olive Garden (and breadsticks yum)
On the total downside:
-Spending 2 hours driving through a snow storm to get home
And on the totally unrelated side:
-A couple that lives on our floor left a card outside of our door wishing as a MERRY CHRISTMAS. As the resident Mrs. Scrooge, I must say one thing about this. I am so tired of people assuming everybody is christian. That is all.
