WHEN: the day after Thanksgiving (madness!)
WHAT: the Free People "Grandpa Cardigan"
WHY: I'm trying on the sweater I have been drooling over for 3 months
sorry for the tiny pic
(the girl in the other picture I found had a scary look on her face)
Court: "Is this not the greatest thing ever!?!?!? It fits perfect! I can wear it with leggins and the brown boots Stone is giving me for Christmas."
Madre: "Court, you HAVE to get that."
Court: "I really really really want it."
Madre: "Get it!"
Court: "I can't."
Madre: (gives me the shocked face)
Court: "I really shouldn't be buying anything for myself right now since we are Christmas shopping."
Madre: "Is it on sale?"
Court: "Yeah. It used to be $160 and now it is $70."
Madre: "Case closed.....GET IT! I'll even go halvesies on it."
Court: "MOM! Get real...you are NOT going halvesies on this!"
Madre: "It's really cute and you need it!"
Court: (as I remove the sweater) "No, I'm buying for others today...not myself."
Madre: "You're gonna regret it."
Damn right I regret!
I spent an absurd amount of time online today (while at work) searching for this sweater.
Oh, I found it! NOT ON SALE AND NOT IN MY SIZE!!!!!
Mothers really do know best!
