Something only Ya'll can appreciate

I decided to personalize my post with details- so forgive me if it's TMI.  Today I had to return skinny jeans for my son today at Old Navy.  He's 10.  He will only wear women's size zero - the boys skinny jeans "Arent skinny enough."....  He wears pink, blue, purple - The 80's are SOOO back.  They keep asking me to get a card and I kept saying No.  (Who want's a store card, right?...I guess that's snobbish, I used to be thrilled to get approved for a storecard....anyway, I'm a FICO SNOB now with my 700's).

 

Old Navy has 40% off today if you use the card, and 10% if you apply for the card - so that's 1/2 off in case you don't get the math right off the bat.

 

I applied and was approved for 1000.00 - and they approved me for the VISA!!!  I called immediately after leaving the store for a CLI and was told that it will automatically be going up on the 19th anyway, and if I didn't like that amount to call again.  Can you believe it?  Because I can't.

 

I also apped online for  a 0% Discover Card with cash back.  They told me that I wasn't denied but I need to have a joint account.  So I am denied, but if DH goes on then I'm approved.  DH keeps saying 'NO MORE CREDIT' so I'm not sure I can convince him of this wonderous thing of a cc.

 

I called my bff after leaving the store to tell her my excitement and she was like 'HUH?"  So I had to tell someone who would appreciate this.  -- Also, I'm down to a size 12 which is hugely amazing, beins that I was a size 18 in February.  Thank God I have the wonderful disease called psoriasis - because searching for remission, I quit eating gluten and wheat in February.  I'm now nearly vegan (would be if I didn't eat salmon).  I'm being facetious about the psoriasis.  I hate it.  Luckily it's in places you can't see.

Pretty much this.  And, congrats on the weight loss.

 

And, you let your 10-year-old son wear pink skinny jeans?

While not a vegan, you are a pescetarianhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pescetarianism

Hey Booner!  Big congrats on the ON Visa :smileyvery-happy: and even bigger congrats on the size 12 and all around health improvement with your eating (I wish I could stand the taste of a vegan diet but I'm a fat\sugar\carb and MEAT addict....:smileyembarrassed:)

 

You might want to tell your DH Discover is said to be dumping the MORE and it's a good card and you might get good offers with it, now or later.  Just a thought....
