A couple of weeks ago we were up in Loveland for Brit's state gymnastics meet.
(Yes, I know I haven't blogged on that yet. I will. It's still a bit emotional for me.
Me? Emotional. You're shocked.)
Sunday afternoon she was watching her friends compete and we were killing time 'til team awards.
We were driving through the outlets and came upon Coach.
(Remember this? Yes. Amazing. Still gives me tingles. Always will.)
Nate: "Do you want to go in?"
Nate: "Why don't you just go in for a bit?"
Me: "No. It's not like we're going to buy anything."
Nate: "Mmmm... okay." He starts to slowly pull out of the parking lot, but is waiting for what he knows I'm about to say.
Me: "Wait! Okay, we can go in and just look for a minute." He was right. He knows me so well.
The boys opt to stay in the car.
Nate and I walk in the store.
Oh, the colors. The newness. The smell of quality leather. The HUGE clearance section.
"Welcome to Coach! Here's a coupon for 30% off your entire purchase today."
Me: "Off anything? Even sale stuff?"
Saleswoman: "Yep! Take 30% off of anything you purchase today, but this is the end of the promotion. The coupon won't be good after tonight."
My eyes get wide.
I look around at all the colorful pretties.
We walk a few steps into the store and pause.
Nate: "Well, go ahead and pick out your Christmas present!"
I know!!! I have the. best. husband. ever.
And after going through the last experience, I didn't argue. =^)
I'd say it was hard to choose, because I take a long time to make decisions like these. But, I wound up going with the one that I fell in love with on my first trip 'round the store... that I knew would be mine from the start.
(There was a gorgeous black one with deep purple lining that was also calling my name, but this one won out.)
Because, really, if you can carry hot pink on your arm... why not?
