I took my time and meandered through the store. I went to Fred Meyer's, a store that I rarely go to, so it was fun to look around. They have started putting out their Christmas things. I love to look at all things Christmas. It is one of those things that just makes me happy. So, I looked and smiled, and took my time. From Christmas stuff I mosied over to the socks....ahhh yes, you know I couldn't resist the lure of the sock isle. I decided to splurge and be daring. I picked up not 1, but 2 pairs of socks, and not just any old socks, but toe socks and placed them in my cart. I felt like a kid who had just been given a huge jar of candy. Those fuzzy little bits of funkiness in my cart made me so happy that I even decided to go and try on some clothes. (If you know me very well, you know that I am not one who is given to shopping for myself. I almost despise it. It has the potential to crush me to dust if I am unable to find something that looks halfway decent on me.)
I actually ended up buying some. Yes, I said buy (try not to fall out of your computer chair sister.) I know, I am amazed myself. I found 2 pairs of jeans that I loved on me. The best part of all is that they were both a size smaller than the last time I bought jeans! Woo hoo! Gotta love that! Then I also found a shirt and a sweatshirt that I liked on me too. Ah-MA-ZING!
The thing that really put it all over the top though, was that when I went to the check out counter they had a "buy 2 get 1 free" on socks deal. So I grabbed a fun little pair of Christmas socks as well. Now that is what I call a great day full of simple pleasures!
I am loving the toe socks by the way. Now, if my barely existant baby toe would just stay in its section I would be even happier!
