I'm finally writing this. I havent been online at all in over a month!
So, I got my super duper gift card from the ever-wonderful cafemom! Thanks again. :-) It was at least two weeks after that before I could shop sans kids I think. That ended up being on labor day. Lucky for me, JC Penney had a HUGE sale going!
However, my local JC Penney had a grand total of about five total items from the American Living line that were on clearance sale in the ENTIRE STORE. About three shirts in the men's dept and two size 1 pairs of pants. I am NOT a size 1. Don't get me wrong, I still appreciate the gift card and I still TOTALLY enjoyed shopping FOR myself ad BY myself! However, I had done a little window shopping at anothe JCP store about 90 min away a while back and they had a TON of AL stuff. So, I wonder why it was not available where I live. Hmm.
That said, when I was just looking, I was not thrilled with the price of many of the American Living items. Call me cheap if you like but $90 - $100 bucks for a sundress is a little steep for me. And frankly, it's not really my style anyway. Still, I wanted to shop for that brand because it was my "assignment."
I did get a skirt, two pairs of shorts, three shirts, and each of the kids an outfit from the clearance sell racks. :-)
Thanks again cafemom for a great day of shopping w/ my mom and some summer clothes that I so desperately needed!
