I love a good deal!

I am taking every effort here to not work on my paper. So what should I do instead? Go to the mall! I did go to the bookstore to buy the book "New Day Revolution" by Sam Davidson and Stephen Moseley who are the founders of the business I am writing about for my case study. They offered to give me a copy of the book a while back, but I decided to go ahead and purchase my own.

Than I head to the gap, since I have a coupon to save and additional 15% off sale items. Usually whenever I go I never find anything I want. However, today I hit the jackpot. I had seen this leather jacket a while back and didn't even bother to try it on, because there was no way I would have paid $200 for it. There is was in all it's glory on the sale rack. They only had an XL it looked like it was a small XL. The guy at the front of the store as soon as he saw me with it said "oooooh you sangged the jacket, have you tried it on yet?"

Me: "not yet"

Gap guy:" It looks a little big for you"

Me (in my head): "Wow this guy thinks I am smaller than an extra large. SWEET!"
Me (not in my head: "Well I hope it fits!"

I head back to the fitting room where a lady helps me and says "Ooooooh that's a great jacket!"

I try it on and it is AWESOME AND I paid $85 for it!!! Score! It was marked down to $100 and than I had my coupon! Yes! Also, after I had tried it on gap guy asked how it fit. I told him it fit perfectly. He made me try it on in the store just so he can see and he also agreed. We started talking about height. He asked me how tall I was without my boots on. I told him. And he thought it was great. He said he sees too many tall women who slouch and he thinks it is great that I love my height!

I can't wait to wear it out. I took some quick pictures. Please excuse the hair and clothes besides the jacket, I was so excited, I didn't put another outfit on to model it.

I leave you with this gem from my new book:
When a new day dawns, we are all given the same amount of time to use as we wish. We will have the chance to erase the slate clean of yesterday's mistake's and lay foundation for tomorrow's success. And so we can pander to the status quo, or work for the common good; we can focus, on the bottom line or on one in need; we can chase every dollar, or follow where hope will lead us. Because at the end the day, what will distinguish us will be what we gave , how we served, and who we loved.-- Sam Davidson and Tallu Schuyler
