The above picture of Trista and I, was taken about 6 years ago (maybe longer) and I do believe it was the last decent snow that we have had here in East Texas. I love to play in the stuff!! Funny thing is........very few people in our area have the proper clothing for playing outdoors in Snowy weather. Hoping that we get at least some snow this year.
And now......for my Black Friday Adventure!
The girls and I woke up around 4:00 A.M. and we were dressed and ready to walk out the door at exactly....4:30 A.M. We all had matching T-shirts........UNTIL, I decided to do a tiny bit of needed alterations to mine. You see, T-shirts that fit close to the neck......make me feel very claustrophobic! I feel like I'm choking with a shirt on like this. How could I possibly have a super productive shopping day, if I was bound at the neck?
Well......as you can guess, I MESSED my shirt up....big time!
Hey, I can't sew a lick, and I don't even try to pretend that I can. What seemed to be a simple task, turned out to be a major disaster for my team shirt.
Trista....(who cannot sew either) came up with this super great idea.
Why not cut the neck out!!!!! After all, a lot of friends do this and their T-shirts look great!
With scissors in hand......I cut the neck on my shirt. A person needs to realize that when making alterations.....it's all in the layout of the material that you are cutting.
Needless to say.......My shirt, is now in the pile to be cut up for OLD RAGS!
The picture above was taken about 5:30 that morning. My feet were already HURTING, and the girls were still shopping. I found myself a BIG seat on an exercise bicycle and I propped my feet up!!!! Shoot naw....I didn't exercise not one bit on that thing!!
Next stop......The Mall! As always, we had to get our snow globe from J.C. Penny's.
I must have at least a dozen of the things and they all look alike!!
A little shoe shopping for the kids......at this point, Trista needed to rest her little piggies for a moment or two.
then it was on to our Traditional breakfast at Chick Fil A. Oh yes.....these small little chicken bites are soooooo goood and sooooo fattening!! When you're hungry and when your tummy is making sounds that could make one think an earthquake just happened....
the best thing to do is EAT!!
Time for Shanda to take a break. She needed a little bit of
Face book therapy!!
By the way.....the shop that we were in for this picture, is a Resale shop and boy did we find some great deals!!! (It never hurts to do a little shopping for yourself)
I have no idea what time this was......but, Shan found her a comfy place to rest.....right there on the TARGET buggy! Target was a big stop for us.....after Shanda caught her second wind, we loaded that buggy up with all sorts of things. Great sales? Oh yes!!
Who needs a little time for SHOE shopping........WE DO!!!!!
