Dot com shopping deliveries....Snagged!

Ok, Ladies...Have you had a clothes shopping moment that you tried to hide from your dearly beloved?

Oh, who am I talking to..OF COURSE YOU HAVE!

Happily, I've lost some weight and have dropped a pants size!

I know you can't see me, but I'm doing the happy dance!

Needless to say, I needed to go shopping. (like I need an excuse)  Yes, of course I've saved my skinny jeans - but this particular size is not considered skinny to me yet, so they took the ol' heave ho.

I'm a dot com shopper.  I have no patience for searching through racks, trying things on, etc.  I'd much rather look at the website see what looks cute, buy it - try it on in the comfort of my own home & THEN take it back to the store if I don't like it.

I don't always hide my shopping.  My hubby is pretty good with the "if you want it, go get it" (within reason of course) and I also work, so I also contribute.

This particular shopping expedition was pretty big & came in a large box.  Not something he's used to seeing.  Usually my shipments come in during the week, via UPS when I can try everything on, take off the tags & get rid of the evidence.  Not today.

TODAY, the mailman delivered the large box.  TODAY, hubby was here to see my daughter lug the large box from the mailman to the front door.

She rang the doorbell & I see her struggling with this giant box.  Eek.  Poor thing.  I had no idea she was collecting mail or it would be delivered in a giant box.  I took the box from my poor struggling child & then took off running with her in tow.

I hurriedly opened the box, took out all my purchases dumped all my stuff on the bed & gave her the empty box saying, "Quick, go hide this downstairs in the laundry room."

Like a good little woman in training, she dutifully did so without question.  She knew.  What a good little student.

Not 2 seconds after she emerges from the basement, here he comes... dun dun dun...

Hubby:  "Where's the mail?"

Angelic woman in training:  "On the table, daddy."

Hubby:  "No.  What was in the big box?"

Me (having to step in for my minion):  "Um, my stuff - Crap - Snagged....I bought pants,Ok" (defensive much?)

Hubby (laughing):  "You know you can't blow anything by"

So whatever...We've all established at one point in time that I'm a really sucky liar.  I used to lie like it was my job when I was younger & got snagged over and over again.  I realize I'm not smart enough to pull it off.  Even the stupid stuff that I just throw out there to buy a little time because I don't feel like dealing with it right now will come back to bite me.. so whatever.  Yeah, I got snagged.

I'd love to hear YOUR snagged shopping stories!

Ok, so if you're a man reading this - you are never allowed to divulge if you are on to your wife's secret shopping.  You know we're just trying to keep ourselves pretty for you.

Women, if you've never been snagged...let's hear it!

Thank you for reading my blog!

  1. LOL! I do this all the time. I will buy stuff, bring it home, de-tag it, and put it in my drawers/closet like it's been there forever. The funny thing is when I wear it LG will look at it and you know he is thinking "I know I haven't seen that before" but then he will ask and I'm like..."Oh, I bought it a while ago." lolol! Totally hilarious! But as my mother always says, "you work, so you can shop!" :) Love her!
