I am enjoying participating in the What I Learned This Week carnival every week. It's on Tuesdays at Musings of a Housewife, if you're interested in linking up.
At first I thought I hadn't learned anything this week. I didn't throw away any iPods this week, if anyone's wondering. I am using my husband's; he uses his even less than I used mine. I only use it at the gym, because when I'm with Mr. Blue I need to be paying attention to him and not to music. If you have ever been around a three-year-old boy for any length of time, you know what I mean.
But it turns out I did learn a few things this week.
I learned that when you are ordering from a company that has a catalog and a web site, don't give up if the web site isn't showing something in stock. Victoria's Secret is having its Semiannual Sale (as opposed to the sales they email me about every OTHER week of the year); however, the bra I wanted wasn't even on the site, and similar ones were more expensive. So I called the number in the catalog, spoke to an actual live human being after a short wait, and got exactly what I wanted.
Oh! This is a good thing I learned: Forever 21 has finally realized there are women who like their trendy yet affordable styles yet cannot squeeze into their teeny-tiny junior sizes. So now they have two other options: Love 21, which has sizes more like misses than juniors, plus the clothes are a little more sophisticated; and Faith 21, a plus-size line. I love what they're selling. Every time I check the site, more cute clothes have been added, which is fun but gives me the itch to spend! I'd show you what I got, but apparently it's already sold out: a knit dress with ruffles on the front in bright orangey-red (great color for me). I'm ready for summer (or will be when I get the dress AND Miss Pink is finally out of school)!
That's all I've got. Can't wait to see what y'all have learned this week!
