Two sizes smaller!!!

This evening after I dropped the kids off at church for Bible Quizzing at 5:00, I figured I had 3 options.  


1.  I could go run.  
2.  I could go home and mow grass.  
3.  Or I could go shopping.


With options #1 and 2, I would have to get a quick shower before returning to the church for Kids 4 Truth at 6:30 and I would be quite rushed.  Plus I am planning to run tomorrow morning and probably mow grass when I get home.  So I opted for #3.  :)


I had a 15% off coupon and a $10 off $50 coupon for Kohl's, so I hopped in the car and away I went.  I wanted to pick up a few short-sleeved tops since I have 2 that really fit me that I wear all the time.  Needed some variety.  Plus I thought I'd check out the clearance rack just in case they got in any more of those shorts that I bought during the summer that I love.


Unfortunately I didn't see any of the shorts, but they did have some capri pants at 50% off.  So I grabbed a pair and went to try them on.


Now at the beginning of the year, I was in a size 14.  By the middle of the summer, size 12 would fit.  So I picked up a 12 and tried them on.


Imagine my surprise to find that 12's were too loose!  Woo hoo!  I quickly went back to see if there were any 10's in that same style/color.  There weren't any in the same color but I found a pair of black ones in the same style.  (I had been trying on a pair of tan ones originally).  I also found a pair of tan capris in a different style but for the same price.


I was happy dancing in the dressing room when I tried them on.  They fit!  And not just barely squeezed into them fit.  But actually felt comfy, not too tight, able to still breathe when I sit down fit.  I was pumped!


I got to the car and called Doug at work.  I told him I had 2 exciting quick things to tell him.  He was like, "uh, okay."  So I told him about the pants.  He wasn't nearly as excited as I was, but he understood.  Then I told him that I saved $132 at Kohl's according to my receipt.  He said, "how much did you spend?!?!"  Typical man reaction.  :)  He was relieved to hear that I had only spent $52 and I was able to use both coupons.  (He's a coupon kinda guy.)


Anyway, I just had to share my excitement!
