...is that you get to shop at stores where you can find your size! Woo Hoo!!!
Over the Valentine's Day weekend, I flew to San Antonio to visit my husband (he's TDY through April). The stores located near Randolph AFB are FABULOUS!
If you've spent any time at Vance AFB (my current location), you'll remember that we have very few large stores here. Sure, we have WalMart and Penney's and Sears but they cater mostly to the farm-living community. That means the clothes are a little large and somewhat 'down-home' for me. (I'm not saying anything but OKC was voted the #2 fattest city in America so the stores here are wise to their needs.)
Anyway, after coming from Okinawa where they grow the tiniest people on the planet, I still feel like I don't have anywhere to shop. (I'm 5'6", Size 6)
So I went down to San Antonio -- as previously mentioned -- and shopped my A** off! At Kohl's, I found Levi's for $14 that fit me perfectly and make my butt look high & tight (Thank you, Levi's, THANK YOU!!!). At Burlington Coat Factory, I bought two coats, one leather and one trench, that make me look like I know how to dress (I don't). At the shopette, I found a 2005 Rodney Strong Cabernet for $10 a bottle!
Needless to say, on Valentine's Day, we were both very happy. He because he had his wife in his dorm room and she was looking good; and Me because I was looking good! (...plus we had a great bottle of wine to enjoy!)
Loving life back in the U.S. of A.!
