Shopping Spree!!!

Being the wife of a Police Officer can be quite a fun time [insert extreme sarcasm]. Don't get me wrong, I'm very proud of my husband, but I'm very quickly learning just how demanding his job can be.

This week he has worked a double shift almost everyday. While the overtime paycheck will be nice, I miss my husband. & Lincoln surely misses his Daddy. Especially now that summer is here, I want to enjoy lots of family time.

Well, it's looking like a lot of our family time, unfortunately, won't involve Jared. At least not while he's the low man on the totem pole. It's all based upon seniority, and right now he's only above one officer. In about two months, he'll be above four. Hopefully things will change a bit then...but, somehow I'm thinking this crazy schedule of his is going to stick around for quite some time.

So, what do I do with myself when Jared is working 3rd shift, and my sweet boy is sleeping? Shop online, of course! No, no, it's not all I do...but, this particular week I induldged in some online shopping for :::gasp::: myself!

Since having Lincoln, I don't really get the pleasure buying myself things like I used to. I'd much rather buy something for my sweet boy. However, American Eagle was having a fabulous sale, and free shipping...woot!

While I only bought two things...I think they're rather cute :)

I purchased this eyelet tank. Although it looks black, it's actually a dark smoky gray color.
& I purchased these super cute white crop pants to go along with it! I had some cute white pants before, but, well, I had a baby, & I can no longer squeeze my butt into a size 1 in the juniors department.

They should be arriving next week sometime. I can't wait to try them on!

:::praying they actually fit:::

Maybe Jared and I will get to have a date night sometime in the near future, & I can wear my new little outfit. It's very doubtful, but it's wishful thinking ;)

American Eagle wasn't the only online retailer that got my business this past week. I shared the wealth along with Old Navy. I did super well there. I had a 25% off coupon code, & free shipping. Here's what I got:

1 pair of cargo pants for myself

2 pair of super cutie jammies for my sweet boy

1 shirt for my nephew

2 shirts for my niece

And the grand total after my coupon was $44!!! Major SCORE!!!

Okay, maybe I have a slight shopping addiction. My poor husband is working major overtime, and I'm being a crazy shopping lady online!! Oh well, what's a girl to do ;)
