Shopping Trip

Took my son, Matthew, shopping today. I'm a Wal Mart and Target girl, but he's been wanting to go to the mall to check out some popular stores like, American Eagle, Aeropostle (sp?) and Abercrombie. I figured these stores would be expensive so I told him we could look, but probably wouldn't be buying. Turns out that AE and Aeropostle were having good sales, plus, if you tried on a pair of jeans at Aeropostle you got an instant coupon just for trying them on. So, Matthew got a few new things and really thinks he's "stylin" now. He had a B.D. party to go to tonight (for a girl...) so he was excited to have something cool to wear.

Breakfast - fruit and 2 strips of bacon (4 pts.)
Lunch - Lots of samples at Sam's (too many pts.)
Snack - A slab of "Cure 81" ham that I stuffed in my mouth mindlessly while fixing Matthew a quick ham and cheese sandwich (4 pts.)
Supper - Ham and scalloped potatoes, green beans and corn on the cob (10 pts.)
TOTAL - I don't know. All the samples at Sam's Club blew my points.

Thanks for the comment. Luckily I RARELY go to Cold Stone. ;-) Sam's Club or Costco samples are dangerous!!

Handsome guy. Hope he had a great time at the party.
Your day doesn't sound too bad - 18 samples (they're so hard to resist). Good luck OP today.

Yeah, I like Target sometimes for shirts and shorts though I find they fall apart on me faster than say Macy's we have out here.
Way to go on your 2 pound lost for our Skinnie Minnies.
I had a tough week or last 5 days due to Las Vegas but oh well, back on track now.

I think I lost 2 pounds yesterday, weird huh? I'll call you in a bit about it all... anyway, I'm back on track. I gotta be skinny for the trip so I have just a little over two months to be camera ready :o)

I remember the days have wanting the "cool clothes" and am partially dreading them for my kids! At least you looked for sales, that's awesome! My parents always just said "no" and we had to walk right by the stores!

Stylin outfit.
Maybe I don't know this because I don't have kiddies yet but what is a BD party??
Those darn samples get me every time!

what a handsome guy! My oldest daughter is crazy about Limited Too...WAY overpriced if you ask me. I'm all about Target with a little Old Navy and Childten's Place thrown in for good measure!
