If you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to lately, I have officially taken up residence at the mall. I’m on a first name basis with everyone in every store in the entire world. The Starbucks people wait along the hallway and throw iced coffee in my face and shout encouraging words as I drag myself to “just one more store”.
I do have to give some major props, though. Many of you sent in submissions from J.C. Penney – a place I’ve always overlooked. They have some crazy cute dresses, and every time one of the employees saw me closing in on them, knowing I was going to shove my phone in their face and make them track down a million different dresses, they were nothing but SUPER NICE. I’m saying this unsolicited – they have a new customer for life (me).
I’ve gotten so many awesome submissions, and a big thank you to you all who forced me to step out of my comfort zone to try things on that I never would have thought would look good. And… well… many of them didn’t.
And here was my major heartbreaker… THE dress. When I opened the email I just knew it was the be all end all. The search was over. This was my dress.
But then it came in the mail and when my sister Sarah walked into the room after I excitedly threw it on, she looked at me like someone had just handed her a bloody, severed head.
Anyhoo, this has been tons of fun but I am totally shopped out for like, ever.
I’m still trying to narrow down several AWESOME options to make my final three choices for you all to vote on – this is hard! Finalists will be announced on Monday, April 15. Stay tuned!
