Shopping is my thing I love it, when I am in a bad mood, good mood, stressed, relaxed, you see a pattern here. I get a lot of great deals, but 7 or 8 $4 skirts will fill up a closet and drain your checking account a lot quicker than you would think. Plus I have things that I have never worn, like ever. I am trying to make myself better in this my 30th year. Better body, better mind, better me. So I figure breaking myself of my major shopping addiction is a great start to the better me.
In case you don't believe me when I say I have a lot of clothes, let me introduce you to my closet....

So the girls picked me up Saturday morning and we started off for the beach, we stopped in Canon Beach for a little shopping and lunch. The beach was so gorgeous, I mean we live in Oregon and there were people actually on the beach not bundled in sweaters and coats, that's a strange occurrence. As we are shopping Mona and Tracy keep disappearing and huddling over their iPhones, figuring it was about the surprise Sunday I thought nothing of it.
We did a birthday toast at one of the overlooks, beautiful view and my girls.

So walking to my car carrying my small over night bag aka "purse" I thought what do I have in here. I dumped it all out when I got home ... here is a list of everything in my purse today
Wallet, okay that's pretty standard
2 pairs of sunglasses, again standard
2 pairs of glasses, clearly I like options
5 pairs of headphones, okay maybe a little overboard but have you ever been somewhere and needed a pair of headphones?! totally acceptable
iPod, again who doesn't have an iPod *that I no longer use because of my iPhone and the amazing invention called Spotify*, but you never know when you might need your entire library of music and movies, what if the battery on my iPhone dies and I am forced to *gasp* talk to people?!!?
17 oz bottle of lotion, okay not standard but it smells nice
Flash light, alright this was a gift from our vendor and won't be in the purse all of the time
2G3 note pad, you never know when you are going to get an amazing idea for a video podcast or your blog!
Makeup bag, Every woman has a makeup bag in their purse, now maybe it's not as huge as mine but they have one!
okay in the makeup bag was:
8 lip glosses, it is completely immaterial that all of them are slightly different shades of pink, one lighter than the next, totally needed .... moving on!
1 lip liner, this is practical next to the 8 lip glosses, which again are totally necessary
1 mascara, this one is totally for my friend Mona who one time needed mascara and I didn't have any and I got a 10 minute lecture about how can you have that huge!?! bag and not have any mascara in there!?!? I have it now and has she once needed it since? No! I blame Mona for this one
Gum, cinnamon, who doesn't need a quick breath saver
Perfume, Lilac who doesn't need a quick.... body saver??
Tide to go pen, stain fighting, coffee stain getter outter (it's a word)
1 wine cork, I am not 100% sure how this ended up in my bag, I shall again blame Mona for this one
Hand Sanitizer, just good sense
Lotion, this one is travel size, you know just in case I run out of the 17 ozs
See that's not bad at all in total 30 items, that seems completely normal, this shine some light on why I have back problems ....

Last week I went to drinks with friends and ended up with a free pair of shoes … I know what you are thinking BEST HAPPY HOUR EVER and you would be right here is how I got my shoes.

Joel: That spicy one that Tricia said was amazing!!
Me: oh the fat lady?
Kyle: you mean the, it's not me it's you?

Waiter: here is your Deal Breaker …
Me: sip ….. *Gasp* *Cough* *Gag* it's smooth …
Stacey: okay we will get you something else
Me: oh thank god that's awful!
Time passes and the fat lady/it's not you it's me is just sitting there untouched and quiet honestly looked a little lonely
Joel: Kyle I bet you $25 that you can't down that drink in one gulp
Kyle: Looks at the drink, looks back at Joel …. $26!
Me: Dude!! Like that's even hard you're just giving him your money!!
Joel: Fine you do it
Me: dude, done! One gulp, fat lady had sung
Joel, Stacey & Kyle: …….
Me: What I said it was easy
Joel: I think I just got swindled!
Tada! Free shoes!! They shall be called "The Joel"
