"Catherine's had a sale..."
Today we went SHOPPING! WOO HOO! :-) We don't get to do that very often. We originally went to get the things I would need for Course II of the cake decorating class. I also needed pantyhose for church tomorrow. Let me just interject here what a TORTURE it is to wear pantyhose in Texas in the SUMMER.
Anyway, while we were there we noticed that they had a clearance sale advertised. I mentioned it to my sister, and she said, "Unless it is 90% off we can't even look." As we walked in the kind lady at the registered greeted us with these words, "Everything on the clearance racks are an EXTRA 40% off of the CLEARANCE price. The clearance price was already 50% off of the original price." Well, that was close enough to 90% off for us. :-)
So, we got some really pretty blouses, and I got a new pair of PJs. Don't laugh, it has been at least 2 years since I have had new PJs. I needed some, desperately. :-) And they are so pretty. :-) Don't you think? Don't judge the body people, that's why I bought the book. :-)
We also ate lunch. I had a large salad, and skipped the pizza. :-) We then bought the book "Fat Smash Diet" and went grocery shopping. We stocked up on fruits, veggies, yogurt and I bought Lentils. I have no clue how to cook Lentils, but I'm willing to give it a shot. :-)
I am actually excited about starting the new food/exercise program. The nephew is already wanting to "jump ship", but I bribed him with his own blog (open only to family to read) when he reaches his short term goal of 25 lbs. ;-) That worked. To even get him to start the program with us I had to let him start his own "Diet Journal" (blog). He was all over that. :-) Again, it is private, only open to family to read. But, being the techno person that he is it works. :-)
All and all I think we had a productive day. :-)
