Must Love Dogs...

So tonight I went with my parents to see the movie "Must Love Dogs", and I loved it. It was totally worth the 9.25 I did not have to pay (Thanks to my parents). LOL. It was one of those movies that I wanted to see based only on the preview, and it was great. I do not care if it only got 2 stars. Hell that ratting was given by 2 old men, so what do they know. Plus, I love stuff that they hate, so I figured I would just love it, and I did.

In other news today, I went SHOPPING! LOL. And for once, it was not for technology, but rather Clothing. I need some more dress-up type clothing, and so I went looking. Granted, at first I thought I was not going to buy jack today, but then when I got to JC Pennies, they were running some damn good sales.

What I had really gone to JP Pennies to look at were Suits and such, but I went to the one in the Heights today (Coronado Mall), and well, I could not find the Suits Jackes that I had seen & loved over at the Pennies @ Cottonwood. But, I did find some great deals on some nice shirts that would look great with a pair of slacks. So, my over all goal is to start building up collection of dress clothing, cus god knows I have enough T-shirts and that such. Plus, I can get that crap at wal-mart for next to nothing.

So, then I went to my office, did the backups and all that fun crap, and took off to goto the Pennies @ Cottonwood. Since I knew right where the Suits jackets were that I was looking at, I went right to them. The first one I picked up was a small, but looked bigger so I tried it on. And yes, it was too small. So, then the next thing I picked up was a Large, and yes it was too large. Man this is starting to sound like a Children’s Tale. LOL. So anyway, then I found a Medium, and guess what, it was just right. LOL. Now granted, I had my choice of like 4 styles, and there were two that I really liked. So, then I tryed to find the style that I love the most in Medium, but guess what, no luck. They were out. So, I did buy the other style that I like, and it does look great. But what I had my sales person do, was look up to see if the Pennies in the Heights (yes, the one I was just at), had any of the style that I loved in stock. So she looked it up, and they had 5. So, I decided to wait until Sunday to see if I can find that one, and go buy it.

So, right now, it sounds like I have spent way over my budget on clothing, and it sorts I have, cus I have no budget for clothing (something I need to change), but anyway, The Suits Jackets were normally 90 dollars or something, but they are like 40% off, so I got that for 50 dollars. Then the shirts were normally anywhere from 20 to 30 dollars a piece, but they were on sale for 12.99 each, so I got like 4 or 5 shirts and paid about 60 for that. So, right now, I have spent about 110.00 on stuff, and I think I will pick up that other jacket for 50. Then I need some other stuff from wal-mart (Like belts and crap), stuff I am not going to pay high dollar for. So over all, I think I will be spending 200 dollars, but will be getting a lot out of it. Which I am very happy about.

So, I am hopping that this will be a good start to my collection of clothes, and I still need to buy a Suits, but due to money, I think that might have to wait. Cus, I am ok with spending 200 dollars, but adding a Suit in on top of that, will prob shoot that up to 400 dollars, and being that I am about 3 weeks out from school, I do not want to use that much from savings.

Well that is it for now. So, now you all know about my shopping spree today, and all the other fun stuff I did.
