FREE Panties...

I just love that word...FREE (did ya think I meant panties...)

The other day a good friend of mine - C - called - she has been stuck at home on baby duty since her precious little one arrived in the beginning of June...anyway she needed to escape and I was only to happy to obilige - especially since hubby is going on a MANTASTIC weekend with friends (which includes C's hubby as well) - so we agreed to meet at the mall...

The mall that sucks me dry every time I go because they have a Nordstoms and well Nordstorms has a Philosophy counter and well if you have read some of my pasts posts - I am a Philosophy HO...anyway I scurried around my kitchen island sorting through weeks of junk mail to find what I was looking for...A FREE Breath product with any $15 purchase at Bath and Bodyworks and a FREE panty at Victoria's Secret - SCORE!!! do the FREE dance.

So off I go to meet C at Dilliards...where she was looking for some clothes to get her through the next month until she goes back to work - we scour the sale racks and nothing...usually I am a good deal good luck charm but I guess not last night.

Anyway off to Coldstone Creamery for a treat...a treat I gladly indulged in because I had my WW weigh-in for the week an hour and a half earlier and EVERYBODY knows points eaten within 5 hours after weigh-in don't count...The Hawaiian Smoothie I got was da' bomb.

Then it was off to B&BB so I could get my FREE breath product - OK not really FREE because I did have to buy something - but I did actually need some Antibacterial hand soap per the Kindergarten registration list - so in reality I was FORCED to go to B&BB - and wouldn't you know it all soaps 5 for $15...my Good Deal radar was once again working...got my soap...got some delicious Breath gradiual sunless tanning lotion (for the wicked winter white skin of mine) and we were off...

to Victoria's Secret...now let me tell you I have only been in a VS a handful of times in my life - they don't exactly cater to those of us that are pleasantly plump...not saying people who are pleasantly plump don't shop at VS...they do...however many of them stretch the boundries of the spandex that VS uses in their items...I have gotten the FREE panties coupon in the mail previously and have passed them along to friends - a lot skinner friends...but considering I am offically no longer a size 16 (that's right...14's baby and even those are a little loose sometimes) I figure I might give it a whirl...the coupon also had an offer for $10 off any BODY bra...I looked down at my girls and decided they needed something new and pretty too...so I tried on a few bras and found one that worked well...then it was off to the panties...

NOW...the panties in question for FREE are the no frills (darn it you mean it doesn't include the pink leopard print thong with the heart cut out and the bow - I am crushed...) basic color cotton panties...which is fine with me - I am a basic kinda girl...but here is the thing - in my heart of hearts I am a Jockey Girl - I know I am a Size 6 in Jockey but how does that translate to Victoria Secret...so C and I sat there and pondered the sizes of VS underwear...we immediately threw out the extra-small, small and medium options...which left us with Large and Extra-Large...so we sat there - measured each against the other - took into consideration the size of my ass and the shrinkage factor of the underwear themselves...then I looked around...nothing in the store is deigned for a person larger than a 14...so that was easy Extra-large it was...if nothing else they could become my "Fat Day" panties...and besides they were FREE...

On the way out I tried my best to avoid Nordstorms...but I couldn't resist...$35 later i have a new Philiosophy Hair Care system...DAMN you Philiosophy....DAMN you Liz...ok Liz I don't Damn you - I luv ya...but you pimped me out girl...

So today I sit in my New Panties...which fit quite nicely and hubby liked the way it covered my ass (probably happy it covered the cellulite)...I think they will be perfect after a run through a very hot dryer and my girls are happily ensconced in their new desert sand colored $42 house (ok $32 with the coupon...DAMN that is a lot of money to spend on a Bra...)...tonight my hair will get it's first taste of expensive hair products...and for this my family will be subsiding on Spagetti and mac & cheese for the remainder of the month...

You got the hair care system????

*drool*

I am starting to seriously resent Philosophy and their products. Whatever you do, don't buy the Amazing Grace body lotion or wash. Really. It's evil.
