They Don’t Sell CD’s Anymore?!?

Happy Thursday, all!  Welcome to all of my new followers!  I hope you will all leave me a comment saying ‘hello, how do’.  I love making new friends and meeting new bloggers!  Next week I’ll do a post all about me so you can get to know me better.

Thanks to all who have entered the BIG Fitness giveaway I’m participating in with 17 other bloggers!  If you haven’t signed up yet please do – it goes to Tuesday, you still have time!  The Rafflecopter is at the bottom of this post.


Yesterday I went to the big city to do some ‘me’ shopping.  I had a huge list of things I was looking for and wanting to get.  Top of the list was some new clothes.  I need some cute jeans that don’t sag and bag now that I’ve lost a little weight.  I needed some cute tops for a few upcoming events that I can’t just wear a t-shirt to.  So off to the city I went, with Baby in tow.  Do you know how hard it is to clothing shop with a 2 month old?  He was a pretty good baby, even was ready to eat at the convenient time I was already in the dressing room.  But you can’t just hop out of the dressing room to go find a different size in something.  And you know you are working on borrowed time anyway since at any moment the baby could decide he has had enough of sitting in that damn car seat.  So I tried on a number of things, none of which I liked on, and then Tate decided he was ready for a snack. I made myself as comfortable as you can on those hard benches and started feeding him. Now, Tate is not a quiet eater, he likes to make “I’m enjoying getting my belly full” noises.  Noises like “DANG this is good milk!”  So there I am, sitting in the dressing room, feeding my little Tater Bug, and all the while he’s making loud moaning and sighing noises, and all I can think about is the other gals in there wondering “who’s getting a piece in the Target dressing room?”  Oh sheesh.  30 minutes later, we emerged from that little room. Luckily I didn’t run into anyone else back there!


Did I leave Target with some new clothes?  Nope.  Womp womp.  And I forgot the stroller so couldn’t go down into the  mall to find clothes down there to buy.  What a let down. 

After that I ran over to Best Buy, looking for a couple of bizarre CD’s for my almost 14 year old niece’s birthday next month.  First of all, have you ever heard of Sleeping With Sirens or Pierce the Veil?  What is she listening to?!?  Anyway, so into Best Buy Tater and I go looking for these CD’s.  Did you know that Best Buy doesn’t cell hardly any CD’s anymore? NO?  Neither did I!  What is this world coming to?  It took me forever to find the tiny selection of CD’s, and once there I knew right away there was no way I finding those CD’s.  Guess I’ll be ordering them online.


So that was fail #2. 

Well, actually, fail #7, because most of what I wanted to find at Target I didn’t. 

Then I went to JoAnn Fabric.  I was looking for similar material to those Adan and Anais blankets.  Have you seen them?  They are nice and thin, perfect for covering baby’s up in the summer.

I wandered and wandered around that store looking for the material and never did find it.  I thought I’d just make a couple of those blankets for Tate myself instead of spending $30 for 4 blankets.  I was wrong.  The universe was against me and didn’t want me to do that.  Instead it led me to the rack of DCWV scrapbooking paper that was on sale for $9.99 a stack.  So I bought a new stack even though I’ve been a lame scrapper and haven’t done a single page for over a year.  Yea, lame.  Fail #8 and #9.

So my big, exciting day of shopping and actually getting to take time to roam turned out pretty crappy for me and I’m bitter about it.  Boo.  I need a real life shopping day, ASAP. 

The best part of my shopping trip was meeting up with my awesome friend, Amy, for lunch at Olive Garden.  It seems to be our spot for meeting up for lunch.  It was yummy, as always, and we had a great time catching up.

  1. I never try on the clothes at any stores. I don't know why. I feel like I will have a meltdown with those fluorescent lights and bad mirrors, I suppose. And then I always have to make another trip to return everything! At least Olive Garden was good!

  2. I hate trying on clothes, even 5 months after baby!!! so depressing!! Plus shopping with kids turns into a workout!!!

  3. Bahahahahah....the other ladies in dressing where like dammmnnn someone is having a good afternoon! LMAO

  4. I saw your IG pic on Best Buy and no CDs. What the heck?! That's where most of my CD collection came from - when I actually bought CDs. :)
    Serious props for trying to clothes shop with Tate. I haven't taken Marcus on a shopping spree… The thought terrifies me.
