Don't Drink and Shop

This one time Garth and I went to Chili's for dinner and a margarita and then walked to Walmart and almost bought a new TV and fish. Good thing fish aren't cuddly because we probably would have walked out with a few.
Last Friday we went to Chili's for dinner and a margarita and then walked to Dick's Sporting Goods and bought a beautiful patio set for our new place. We don't regret the purchase, but we probably shouldn't drink and shop again.

Oh no! You need to get a "restraining" order so you can't drink within fifty feet of a store. lol

Melissa said...

Lol. I was recently at a charity event/silent auction. Lots of drinks, lots of things to buy. I ended up with tickets to a comedy show, some USC gear, and autographed photograph of an old time famous boxer. I don't even like boxing! Ha!

Brittany Ann said...

Oh dear! Chillis' drinks will do that to a girl!

Lauren said...

Hee hee...I love this!!! At least you're buying useful stuff that you'll enjoy!

The Pink Potpourri said...

Jules said...

I am with you on this! I went to this girls night out function where there was shopping and free drinks. It definitely made me want to buy things I didn't need.

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Ha that is so funny!! And so true! It's easy to feel OK with a purchase if you have a drink (or two) in you! Makes it that much easier :)

jen + ryan said...

Erin said...

Erin said...

That's hysterical! I've had similar experiences with Wal-Mart and On the Border margs ;-)

Justine said...

Hahahaha :) I'm jealous I can't wait to get a patio set! :)

Liana said...

the future mrs Hailey Hinz said...

last time i had some margaritas (its always the margs that get me) and went on a splurge with my future MIL. loved every minute of it!!

Amber said...

Too funny! I've tried to grocery shop after a drink too many and I ended up wandering around the store, totally distracted, with no idea what I had gone in there to buy. I'm with you, not a good idea :-)

LauraAnn said...

Haha! That is too funny! I've had a few tipsy shopping trips but my purchases usually only consisted of clothing or accessories (nothing big).

AmyT said...

ha ha it's about like - don't go grocery shopping on an empty stomach!!

MissJody said...

Amanda said...

You can add that to your "Philosophies" post! At least you don't have buyer's remorse with the new patio set!

Mika said...

a H.I.T. said...

You sound like Husby and I!! Except we're normally walking up 5th Avenue after we've had a few too many. Never a good thing.

morewineplease said...

I love Chili's margarita's... and shopping :)

Lis said...

Ha ha ha!! I've totally done this before too!! :) Darn those margarita's!!

Jeanie Gray said...

For some reason, just 1 glass of wine makes me feel like I can wear anything. Even orange, which with my red undertones is a huge no no! Talk about clouded judgment!

SassyEngineer said...

Haha - maybe that is what I need to do to get my husband to let me buy more things! Haha - just kidding :)

Mrs. J L said...

lol. shopping and drinking what a great combo. u see the thing is that if you go when you are sober you think really good about it and u talk urself out of buying it BUT when u go shopping after u drink u don't let ur conscience tell u anything. u go with ur gut feeling. so get what u truly want. lol awesome! ;)

Kim said...

ha.... good PSA.

Am said...

My name is Megan... said...

That Fresh Feeling said...
