The weather was just absolutely perfect this past Saturday. We spent the morning cleaning up around the house- I worked inside, while Curtis tackled the lawn for the first time this spring. For lunch, I have a craving for crawfish, so I Yelped to find the best reviews in town, and that's how we ended up at a dive bar with no signage outside at noon on a Saturday. The bar was empty, except for a party on the patio, but the beer was cold and the crawfish was cheap and delicious.

Of course, there is no Gap Outlet online store, so I pretty much felt like I was out of luck. I even checked at a Gap Outlet in California when I was out there visiting Megan, but it was to no avail. Fast forward to about a month later, and I am back in my local Gap Outlet. We were standing in line, and what do I spy behind the counter? This dress. I asked, tentatively, if it was on hold for someone or if it was being restocked. After some conversing between managers, they determined it was not on hold. First hurdle cleared. Then I checked the size. Holding my breath, I checked the tag.
And score! The dress was mine, AND 40% off! Booyah! So my weekend was filled with elephants and "mud bugs". One is delicious to eat, and the other is delightful to wear. Try not to get 'em confused! Do you have any items in your closet that almost "got away"?
