I'm A Shopping Fool

Well I just wanted to let you all know that I was able to find some things today shopping and I think the fact that I set a budget and was willing to spend all of it helped me to find some good deals.  I came in under budget by almost $100.  That was great!!!!!!!

I started my shopping trip at the Target.  I love the C9 brand of workout clothes and this is what I was looking for at Target.  I was not able to find a new sports bra but I did find mesh shorts.  Above the knee longer than the crotch shorts.  They are the shorts I have been looking for for months now.  I was so excited to find these that I just knew I was going to have a good day.  I ended up with 2 pair of shorts and a Duo Dry shirt that was on sale.  I am stopping by my local Wal-Mart tonight to invest in a new sports bra and maybe one more pair of tight pants. 

Then it was off to Lane Bryant.  I had one particular article of clothing in mind and I just knew exactly what I was looking for.  In most cases when you have this in your mind you will never find it unless you go to  Well, I found it, and not only did I find it but it was to big so I got a smaller one and it was too big so I got a smaller one until I was in a size 16.  Oh, my little heart was jumping with joy.  I am a firm believer that I do not care what the size is but if that number is lower than what I was expecting it is a great feeling.

Well I ended up with a few things from Lane Bryant, but I still need some shirts.  I had good luck with the bottom half (no pun intended) but no luck on shirts.  I did get a few fall time sweaters that were way on sale and way cute.  And Lane Bryant has started carrying shoes.  I have wanted a pair of knee boots for a while but I have rather large calves so I cant usually fit them but today they had some that fit with room to spare.  Oh it was so nice. 

I have been joking with my sisters for a few weeks now about buying jeggings.  If you don't know what these are they are leggings that look like jeans.  They are way in style right now and I am going to have a pair.  Well I tried some on today but eventually talked myself out of them.   They were way cute but I can only wear them a few places so why would I waste the money on that when I could get another pair of dress pants or something.  So no jeggings just yet, but I will have some......

So over all I had a great shopping trip with just one more minor stop to make.  I was so happy to get a few things that were much needed.

I realize you are trying to stick to a budget, but I highly recommend the Enell sports bra I found here: . It is a bit pricey, but once you put it on you will be amazed at what a difference it makes for your workout. I am also a shopping fool! :)
