Yesterday, we shopped until we dropped! For Christmas, Jeremy and I got a lot of gift cards and money! So, yesterday we went to Norman to go spend it all! I got up really early and was going to run before we left, but it was 28 degrees and there was ice on the ground so I didn’t. Instead, I made lists of all of the places I wanted to go, and things I wanted to buy. I definitely got a workout from walking around all day.
When we got to Norman, we stopped at Sooner Mall to go to Old Navy.
My nana gave me a gift card for there and I was super excited about using it. But, I went at the wrong time. They were in the “in between” stage and there was not much on the racks or shelves. Everything was on sale and they were trying to get rid of all of it. I found 2 sweaters that I liked, but they did not have my size in either of them. I was so disappointed, but at least I still have a gift card for when they do get their new stuff out.
I have figured something out about Old Navy. Tell me if you have noticed this too. If I shop in the store and find something that I like, I can order it online for a lot cheaper. Unless it is a really good deal in the store, I will take pictures of everything that I like and then go online and order it. I think I save a ton of money that way! They are always having big sales online. Since they didn’t have my size in the sweaters I liked, we decided that we would go to the Old Navy in Oklahoma City later to see if they had them. (They were on sale for $10!)
When we left Old Navy, we walked across to Sun and Ski Sports to search for some new Toms. I tried to find some before Christmas, but the store didn’t have my size. Lucky for me, they had a sale for buy one get one half!
And, they had my size in black and navy! So, I got two new pairs. The girl checking me out was teasing me because I wear kids sizes in Toms. She went on and on about how much cheaper they are, and I agree. The only down side is that unless I like hearts and flowers, there really aren’t a lot of kids designs that I can wear. But, I was really happy to get these since mine were worn out!
We decided we didn’t want to walk around the mall, so we left and headed to the other Old Navy. It was about the same as the one in Norman. The only difference was that it looked completely ransacked! There was hardly anything hanging, it was all thrown on the tables, so you had to dig. I had to do some searching, but I found one of the sweaters I wanted in my size!
When we left there it was around noon and I was starving! I had skipped breakfast because I wasn’t hungry and I figured we would eat an early lunch. We went to Chick-Fil-A. I got the chicken nuggets meal and thanks to Heather at Polyglot Jot’s recommendation, I tried the chick-fil-a sauce. It was really good! I think I like it better than the honey mustard now. Jeremy tried it too and he really liked it! I’m hooked now!
We left there and headed to Moore to return some things to Gordman’s. Since we didn’t have the receipt, we had to exchange them. We got some new pillows, a new toy for Jake, and Jeremy got a couple of new shirts. I also got a new silicone spatula.
Then we headed over to Hobby Lobby so I could find something to hang my medals on. Right now I just have them laying on top of my dresser, but I really want to hang them up. I found a rack ( I think it’s a towel rack) that will work for now. I am eventually going to order one. I want a metal one that says “always earned, never given”. I’ll post a picture when I get them hung up! I was bummed that we missed all of the Christmas stuff. It was 66% off, but it was all picked over and there wasn’t hardly any left. That’s okay though because we really didn’t need anything.
When we came out of there, we walked next door to a Fan Outfitters store. Jeremy bought us both a new OU t-shirt to wear while we watch the game tomorrow! Mine’s the black one!
After leaving there, we went down the road to Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Jeremy loves to shop this time of year because they have all of the camo and hunting stuff on sale.
We He spent about an hour in there looking at all their hunting stuff. I spent about an hour in there looking at running socks and shoes and clothes and they had this board with upcoming races.
I think the Frozen Nose series sounds fun. I will have to see how it could fit into my training schedule and also what we will be doing on those days. (The race is 2 hours away from me) We left there empty handed because everything he found, he thought we could find at Academy and he had gift cards there.
We headed back to Norman and stopped at Ulta. They were having their big sale on jumbo shampoos and conditioners. I have desperately been searching for a new shampoo and conditioner since mine changed it’s formula. I found Jeremy’s on sale for $12.99!
I bought this kind for me, and I will do a post once I figure out if I like it or not.
When I was in line to check out, I found this in one of the bins by the cash register.
I didn’t pay attention to the box. The bin said under eye concealer. I got up extremely early yesterday morning and I had HUGE bags under my eyes. And, ironically, while I was up so early I watched an infomercial about It cosmetics. So I was thinking “Sweet! This will cover up the bags!” I threw it in with my stuff and headed out the door. Once I got in the car, and used it, I realized that it wasn’t concealer, it’s foundation. I tried it this morning, and I don’t know what I think about it. It seems really thick, but it didn’t seem to cover very well. I’ll try it again tomorrow and see what I think. (On that subject, my mom sells Mary Kay, so that is all I have ever worn. I wouldn’t know how to go into a store and pick out makeup! My mom has always given me what I need.)
When we left Ulta, we headed to Academy. This is what Jeremy was waiting for all day! He drove me around and followed me through all the stores I wanted to go in, so I could repay the favor! By the time we got there my feet and legs were hurting from walking around in my Uggs all day, but I sucked it up and was a good wife. (Very minimal complaining!) Jeremy had some gift cards to spend, so I was thinking we would be in there around an hour. If you follow me on Snap Chat, you got see how long we were in there, and how bored I was!
We spent almost 3 and a half hours in Academy!! We started with all of the compression stuff. Jeremy needed new stuff to wear when he referees. I had bought him a shirt for Christmas, but it didn’t fit. So, he had to try on several different tops and bottoms. Then, we moved on to camo. They had all of their camo on sale, so we went through all of it and he tried on a ton of it. He ended up getting 2 sets of pants, shirts, and coats. (Which he needed, his is faded and old!)
Then we looked at all of the deer stands that were on sale, and compared all of them. He ended up getting 2 of those.
Then, we went to the shoe department in search of some new socks. He ended up trying on tons of shoes, and he even broke a display because he was trying to stretch the cord down so he could try on that shoe! Oops!
I did get a new foam roller, a running tank, and some new running shorts that were on sale for $5!
We literally closed the place down! All of the employees were standing at the front door when we checked out, and several of them gladly helped us load the car!
With the car completely full of new things, we were done shopping since we couldn’t fit any more bags in there! We were both hungry, so we went through our choices. Neither of us wanted Mexican or Italian. So we settled on Outback.
We haven’t eaten there since March! Jeremy ordered a Bloomin’ Onion and we didn’t even eat half of it.
It was good, but it was just way too much fried food. I really wanted a cheese burger. I rarely eat those, and that sounded so good. But I’m trying to clean up my diet after the holiday’s so I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich.
It was not so great. The menu said it had avocados on it, but it came with guacamole that tasted like lime. I scraped it off and ate just the chicken and few fries. Jeremy shared his side salad with me. He ordered a huge pork chop, baked potato, and side salad. He said it was really good! It must have been because he ate all of it!
When we finished dinner, we headed home. It was such a fun day! I didn’t really get much stuff, or many clothes. But, I still have my Old Navy gift card. I’ll make up for it soon!
Are you getting back into a healthy routine, or do you wait until the new year?
