Tiffany and the City: Adventures of a Fat Shopaholic. Tag Teaming Target!

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Today was one of the most fun days I have had in a really long time and the best part is it cost me next to nothing. I didn't even buy anything other then lunch. Never underestimate the power of being around a great friend(s).  Wanna know what I did? Well, here goes!

Today in Chicago the weather was great. Mother nature kissed downtown Chicago with a glaze of sun that didn't feel oppressively hot and lit the daylight hours incredibly. There was also a light breeze that accompanied the sun. I was kind of sad at the prospect of being stuck in school all day so, I half slept through humanities, stayed for half of biology, and skipped U.S. History all together (they were watching a boring movie I had seen all ready). After I escaped college for the day I headed to H&M. I needed to replace my purple hair pin from the garden collection. I wore It to school today but, by the time I sat down in Biology it was gone. When I got to H&M they were out and I had to get a light blue one instead. I also got a necklace and earrings because I was in a rush this morning and didn't have the time to accessorize. I couldn't take feeling plain so, I put on everything I purchased before I left the store.

I didn't picture the earrings because they're just standard hoops. When you've seen one pair you've seen them all right? After H&M I went to my bestest friends Britney's work to see her 2 bosses. They are my resident fashion critics. They approved of my outfit!

Next, I walked near Harold Washington Library to meet up with my bestest friend Britney. I don't get to see her very often. She's my only plus sized friend so, when we see each other we instantly begin exchanging information about whats hot at what store, recent purchases, blogs, and designers.
Here we are together. Ain't we cute girl?

After meeting up we had falafel at Whole Foods. Then we saw a friend of Britney's that worked at Whole Foods. She reads True Blood like me so, when had a whole talk about Twilight, True Blood, and vampires in general. It was great! 

Next, a simple trip to target turned into a excursion.  We checked out the clothing first and the straight or plus size sections didn't have anything of note. We walked around some and found the toy section. First Brit Brit showed off her excellent hula hooping skills. 

Unfortunately I'm not nearly as good. In fact I couldn't even keep the hula hoop up! 

Next, we both had fun bouncing balls

We played bop it to! I didn't get any good pictures of brit brit playing though. :-(


Dude Seriously I'm concentrating. Do not disturb!  


After we left I had Britney take pictures of me jumping.

Getting ready to launch 

Take off! 


We had so much fun. I felt like a big, little kid. I couldn't have been happier today. Sadly me and brit brit had to part ways. You have to do that so there will be a next time right?
