Sabina is now offically in women's shoe sizes. She wears a size 7. Why is this bad? The shoes cost more, the shoes are not so cute - no Dora the Explorer or Strawberry Shortcake in women's sizes and did I mention that they are more expensive??? !!! We went all over the Mall and couldn't find any shoes that she liked that were under $40. I really don't even want to go over $30 because the girl is 7, almost 8. The life of a tennis shoe for a 7 year old, a ROUGH PLAYING 7 year old, is about 3 months - if I am lucky! I will go broke! We are still looking for shoes. We will hit Mervyn's tomorrow - maybe we will get lucky...
As we were walking through the Mall, I did a little window shopping. Ok - I tried on clothes! I couldn't help myself. I found a pair of cute pants that were on sale for $19.99. I went up to the register to pay for them. As I pulled out my wallet I remembered that I had a coupon for the store. I figured that it was for 10% off. I handed it the the sales clerk. Guess what - it was for $15 off a purchase of $15 or more!!! That means that I got my pants for a grand total of $5.36. Do you know how exciting moments like this are for me? BIG TIME exciting. I love deals like that! Woo-Hoo! I have been feeling the urge to frame my receipt. I won't - but I will save it! :-)
