I'm obsessed with spending $4000 between Chesterfield Mall and West County Mall. Why? Because I want a stupid shirt. Yes, stupid shirt, that I could buy for $100, but I feel the need to spend $4000 elsewhere to get the shirt.
So, right after the wedding I went to the mall and heard about the "Black Card". Sounds fancy and important, right? No, not at all. There are a few different tiers 1000, 2000 and 4000. Well, I hit the first level on my own, then I asked for help.
So, I've been attacked friends, family and co-workers for reciepts. I managed to hit tier 2 with the help of my friend Melanie who shops as much as I do, and then a few biggies from Pottery Barn and the Sony Store from my Mom. After today's great shopping trip of getting new makeup and some new pants and my fav store I only need $1300 left.
You get a bunch of coupons too - and they are actually pretty good. Gift certificates to resturaunts, free chocolate at Godiva, free samples at Sephora - lots of fun stuff.
I got out of there today with cookies for Jeff, a latte from Nordstrom and a free luggage tag.
What else could a girl ask for?? Now, I'm going to restrain myself and not go to the mall anymore this weekend - I spent enough for one day.
I haven't blogged in a while, so I thought I'd make a list of things for an update:
1) My little baby cavity that I've had since I was a baby fell out - I had to get it refilled. Ugh! 2) How ever the hygenist told me I have the whitest teeth on the scale - A1. Whoo hoo. 3) I have offically hit level 2 of my Black Card at West County and Chesterfield. No, I did not spend all $2K on my own - I'm not THAT out of control. 4) I got a free Dooney & Burke bag because that card - not sure how I feel about it. I feel a regift coming on. 5) I still love the job - it's insane - I'm busy all day, then I go home and still want to do it all again. 6) We're going to Florida in less than a month! 7) I've offically lost 16 lbs on Jenny. Not shabby. I need to kick it up. The goal is to lose 20 by Sept 20th. but the ultimate goal is to be down 30 by Oct. Let's get crackin'. 8) Deep inside, I'm glad the Olympics is over. I missed my husband. 9) We got season 4 of Entourage - Love it, but I love more that I got Jeff hooked on it. He's so funny. 10) I got a dress for the wedding and it's 2 sizes small! Yee-ha excitement!
