It's interesting what the sound of your cell phone ringing from your purse can do to you.
In my case, the ringing was my husband's own special ringtone. And it was ringing while I was standing in the middle of a department store with a brand new pair of jeans in my hand. That ringing caused me to drop those jeans like a hot potato.
I really wanted those jeans. I need a pair of skinny jeans to go with my boots. Regular jeans just cannot be stuffed in there. I need the skinny jeans. NEED!
Then I remembered the husband and when he schooled me on the difference in needs and wants. He explained that in order to have something in life we must be frugal. So did I need the jeans? No. Did I want the jeans? Hell yeah!
It was a sign.
A sign that he would kill me when he saw said jeans and price tag on said jeans.
So I dropped the jeans and walked out of the store. Came home and yanked out my sewing machine. Determined to turn a pair of Old Navy jeans (that I'm not that fond of) into my own pair of skinny jeans that will work with my boots.
I'll let you know how that goes.
P.S. The hubby has requested that he now be referred to as Super Ultra Mega Stud in all future blog posts. I'm still contemplating that one.
Edited to add: OMG ya'll! I totally talked myself into going back to the store and buying these after all your encouraging and slightly devious comments. So I whip in the parking lot after taking Cashman to the doctor and I see this huge ONE DAY SALE banner. I ran in the store. Grabbed the jeans in my size and dashed to the register. I got those babies for $27. And I still probably, most likely won't divulge the dirty little secret to Super Ultra Mega Stud.
