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!
