This year I did my best to not be Debby Downer about the weather and season change. But it wasn't even a day into the dropped temperatures that I quickly learned that I have nothing to wear. Nothing. I don't even have a jacket which I (obviously) need because I get cold in any temperature under 82 degrees. The jackets I was sporting last fall are very out of style (like 5 years old out of style...that happens when you worked non-profit, then lost your job and now are a grad student and doing everything I can to not spend my husbands well-earned money on something I don't really even enjoy -- I'd much rather spend his well-earned money on dining out, movie popcorn, street fests, date night or just about anything other than clothes!). Back to my point, it's a necessity so I thought I'd try to cheer myself up and embrace this weather the best I can and go shopping with some leftover birthday money (yes my birthday was back in February!).
I met my mom in the burbs and went to the local mall and ended up coming home with nothing. Absolutley nothing. Well that's not entirely true, I did buy a sweatshirt for Jason and a cute "my aunt loves me" outfit for Kaylee. But nothing for me which was the intended point of the trip.
I hate shopping. Hate it. I swear I am missing the girly gene that every girl has. I hate shopping, hate gossip, hate reality TV shows and all the other girly things girls love. How do I not like shopping? I even had money to spend and I still hate it. I've always joked that I need a personal shopper but it is coming to the point that I need one. And ever since I've gained weight I feel like nothing fits how it's suppose to, so I just give up before I even try them on. At this point I've decided that the one thing I really need is a jacket. That way I can at least cover up my bad out of date clothes and leave the house without freezing to buy some better clothes to go eventually sport without the jacket on.
In the meantime, since I know it'll be a while before I find anything I like, if you're interested in being my personal shopper, I'll hire you for $5 an hour. ;-) I think that's a steal! You get to spend my money and do what I keep every girl except me loves to do - shop! Hey, I'll even throw in the $4.73 so you can enjoy a pumpkin spice latte while doing the shopping! Who is in?!
