One of the comments was left by Fran, who ended hers with "And now you made this major decision I want you to give yourself a present because you totally deserve it." I cracked up and thought "way ahead of ya, Fran" - because I'd gone on a bit of a crazy shopping spree a few days prior, and my package of goodies was already in transit to my house. I'm sure it won't surprise many of you to hear that I got some BARGAINS! I've actually been looking for some swim equipment (online, of course, since we don't have any stores here in town that carry this stuff) and along the way I found an awesome deal on some clothes. Next week I'll write about the equipment that I got - I haven't had it long enough to give it a good test. But for today, it's Fashion
(Everything pictured is from Kiefer.com - they had a clearance page, plus I had a code for an additional 25% off AND free shipping (I'd share the code but it was only for 24 hours). And I had a $21 credit from some equipment that didn't work out. I made out like a bandit!)
Last week I wrote about needing something to wear to the pool when the weather turns cool. I found these TYR warm up bottoms for $15 after the discounts! And the sweatshirt? It was a "team grab bag" which meant I could specify size, but they'd choose the design. I figured why not - I was just going to wear it to the pool, right? Anyway, I'm now an unofficial member of the Ashbury Alligators, for the low price of $4.87!
I still need to get about 4 inches cut off the bottom of the warm ups - I swear, they make these things for giants!
OK, that was the stuff I needed. But there were bargains to be had! And besides, I like the idea of having some swimming t-shirts. Here's the rest of the loot:
Grab bag t-shirt for $2.25 - it's a little big (I should have chosen a medium) but how cute is the lettering?!?
"Team grab bag" long-sleeved t-shirt ended up being a 3/4 sleeve baseball style, which, again, I love. I'm an unofficial member of the DGSRC Dolphins. Go team!!!
I love this shirt, but like all burnout shirts, it runs small - this is an XL. I know!!! But it's cute. My splurge at $9.89.
How could I resist this shirt/hat combo? It's PINK! And it declares who I am - a "Swim Chick" - yes indeed! $7.20 for both.
If you've made it this far, thanks for indulging me in my fun fashion show. While I get my everyday reward from exercising in the form of increased endorphins, strong muscles, and a body that is shaping up quite nicely, it's fun to reward myself with things, too. Do any of you do this? Or am I just crazy?
