when boredom turns into big-time savings

one thing i've learned being a stay-at-home-wife....sometimes, i'm prefectly happy chilling at home with my dogs, watching tv and getting little things done around the house.

and sometimes, i feel like i'm going to crawl out of my skin if i don't get out of the house and DO something.

so earlier this week, i decided to hit the mall and just browse. a lot of times when i do that, i don't end up buying much....but looking around and breathing air NOT in my house does me good.

and SOMETIMES, it also means i get an expensive dress for less than it costs me to fill up my car.
yes, i took this in the dressing room. and yes, the girls are a LITTTTTLE more on display than i normally rock these days....nothing a little tailoring can't fix.

cuz this dress? normally $98.

me? i paid $12. and some change. but less than a dollar's worth of change!!

i have nowhere to wear this in the immediate future, cuz i think it's WAY too nice for my high school reunion (which, by the way...i have a whole post full of gripes about. but all in due time). i don't even have any weddings to go to in the near future, which is WEIRD, seeing as how there's been at least one on the horizon for me every year since 2007.

but for twelve bucks?? i don't care if i have to rock this baby to the grocery store...it HAD to come home with me.
