When I was at my sister's a few weeks ago we went shopping. Because we always go shopping when we're together but rarely without each other. I know you think it's because we're such good friends and that's part of it. But really it's because if she gets something I want it too and if I get something she wants it too and it's easier if we go together.
We don't have a Kohl's here but she has one there and they were having a sale. I've since discovered they're almost always having a sale but whatever. And they were giving Kohl's Cash which is a whole 'nother story!
I needed jeans. Yes, needed. Two reasons I guess. Number One reason is that I go to a contemporary worship service and everyone but me (not I'm not sixteen but it's true I promise, well not promise but really) was wearing dark, dark jeans. They looked new. My Levis are just that - Levis. Faded, not new. Faded because I bought them that way and faded because they've been worn for ten years or more. And Number Two Reason (which might really be the Number One Reason) in the last ten years my body has stretched and my jeans didn't.
I found the perfect jeans for me! Dark, dark denim, on sale, and just like my body, they stretched! How cool is that! They are just a tad long but with a few washings that will self-correct. They have a tiny bit of spandex in them and while I hate, hate, hate spandex in blouses, I love, love, love spandex in the waistband! So I bought them in every color they had. Denim, black, brown and khaki. Do you do that? Find something you love and buy it in every color? Or is it just me? Because I then found a short sleeved casual sweater and bought it in three colors. Perfect for the church because sometimes the air conditioning in church is rediculous.
Oh and that Kohl's Cash? It has a date on it. It's not like real money. You can't save it for later. You have to spend it right away! Which meant that I had to drive 30 miles to the nearest Kohl's store after I got home and get rid of it quick. Which I did. As the younger generation might say, I "scored" two sets of designer towels (made from bamboo I might add) for only a couple of dollars of my cash and lots of Kohl's cash. It made my heart skip a beat, really it did.
