the cry/shop/cry cycle

I wish we could all be IRL besties you guys, bc seriously LOVE YOU, and if we were real life besties I would split a rio with a bunch of you and refill your diet any day, THEN hit the gateway for soooo many darling clothes that just SCREAM "us!!!" so loud we could NOT resIST and then whoopsies, overspend a smidge, end up hidding them from our hubbies until the credit card thingie comes, and then if JJWT or your hubby get's mad, we will cry and seriously bawl and then remind them of that one time they hurt our feelings real bad and then zinnnnng, the whole thing gets turned around on him and he'll end up apologizing his brians out and then I'll say, look, babenugget, I know you don't get it, I just need some girl time...

AND THEN WE JUST DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!

LOVE my life!

O MEH GOODNESS TAMN YOU SCARED ME!

Umcuz, you see in where I now live (Totally followed the hubs to the mission filled for GrAd ScHoOl!) the "Gateway" is the yucky mall with a ROSS in it. TOTES forgot that it's the nice mall in Zion. If you were here we would go to the Oakway. Just sayin.

Kim said...

Wow TAMN, I seriously need a weekend like that!

Helena said...

So...I've done this. Awesome.

Laura said...

This is why hubby and I don't have a credit card.

Oh my heck I stumbled on the PURRFECT shopping trick this week and it was totally for accident but def gonna use it FROM NOW ON. So I was all "I'm gonna chop off my lustrus locks super short like Carey Mulligan" and my hubby lover was all "no I love your hair" and I was all "well you never make a big enough deal about it so I am cuttin' it so there! Gurl power!" So he was all mopping and sad and I went to the salon but when I got there I was all "wait, now I wouldn't be able to curl it and make the momz who have no time to style jealous at church" so I decided to go shopping at the mall instead and when I came back with a new SUPER cute argile sweater hubby was SOOOOO relieved to see my beautiful hair he didn't even care I'd been shoppin'! LOL!

Seriously, can't wait to use this for realz. you should do it. Threaten you're going to go get your boobs reduced or your hair unstreaked or your butt fattenated and he'll be overjoyed to find out you just bought a new wardrobe at Anthro instead!

S'all good. That's what our hubbies do at sporting goods stores like Big 5 and Cabela's, right?!? Communicating about stuff like budgets and "credit card thingies" is so boring.

Melissa C said...

I love it when my hubs has to apologize his "brians" out after I have shopped too much. Greatest Post ever! Gotta go, I must hide things right now before the hubs gets home in fact!

Sarah said...

I've been married almost 7 years and I had NO CLUE!!! Thanks for filling me in!!! Hey, does this work on parents? I'm assuming you still have access to some of Daddy's credit. ;)

Frau said...

I never thought of that.

I just keep pictures of all the frumpies in our ward inside my closet. So when he inspects my bags with distaste I can point and say, "Hey, you pay to play."

Merri said...

Um...what the heck is a Bible cat??

Just Another Girl said...

This post is hilarious but the comments just keep me laughing - MHANA.

Alisha said...

Uh oh, you like Cafe Rio? My respect for you just dropped 10 points. Sad.

P said...

42 years of marriage and it still works. He's clueless.

debbie said...

OUCH!!!! (hit a bit too close too home.)

Foxy said...

Dude, they have online payment options for this very thing. JJWT never has to know if you pay it online...

Mary said...

Oh my gosh, my brians can't handle how geniusy you are!!

Bethany said...

Mhana!So funny! I don't have a hubs yet(I've got 11 months until I'm 22 so I'm totally ok, right?), but when the day comes I totally will use that i-duh. And tamn's two of corz.

Dorothy said...

I know this is just a joke but if that was my life I would die.

Little Lovables said...
