My mother-in-law gave me a $50 gift card to TJ Maxx, which I used to frequent weekly when hubby and I were DINKS (Dual Income No Kids). Now I just don’t go as often but there was a time when my husband knew that on Thursdays (when our local TJ Maxx got in their weekly big shipment of merchandise) that he could call me between 5 and 6 p.m. and I’d be wandering aimlessly in TJ Maxx.
I’m probably going to admit what a loser I am when I tell you that I spent well over an hour looking around by myself and it was pure bliss. I even took photographs of things I liked I’m such a great blogger dork. God Help Me if it had been TJ Maxx Home Goods store. I probably would have killed three hours and been escorted out like some creepy stalker Internet weirdo. Unfortunately I have a fluorescent lighting store dressing room handicap when it comes to photography and I had a tough time capturing the cute. Psssst those little square Paris plates were only $2.99!
I ended up buying three really great tops with my gift card (with a $1.50 left on it…SCORE!) I bought the fuchsia ruffled top in the upper left corner, the purple Willi Smith sleeveless top in the center right, and a cute Willi Smith wrap black jersey knit top with a fun inset cream ruffled top that is smokin’ cute. I am really bordering on a Stacy and Clinton intervention since I tend to wear black boots, jeans, and some variation of a black cardigan or a solid t-shirt from Old Navy to work, the grocery, EVERYWHERE. My office is so casual that I could pretty much wear anything as long as I don’ t show up naked. So I tried to pick out things with a little more flair and sexay than usual.
Any way, the girls are at our parents for 48 hours and now I’ve got some cute new clothes to flaunt for my hubby (and for myself…yea).
Now I’m going to play my George Michael super model anthem for the evening while I unload our new dishwasher and hubby goes to the liquor store. This is married suburban soccer mom excitement in FULL FORCE.
