Fully Tanked

21 Jun

The other day, I came to an embarrassing realization.

I am an addict.

Maybe I should back up and start at the beginning. Or, at least, the beginning of my epiphany.

You see, about two weeks ago, a little website called Groupon (maybe you’ve heard of it) had a deal for another little business called Old Navy. Since I am a mom and my clothes are far more likely to see the inside of a bouncy house place than, well, any place hip or chic, I am quite the fan of $8 tee shirts.

So, obviously, when a Groupon came around giving you $20 of Old Navy credit for only $10, naturally I bought…four. Dammit, make that five.

((looks away sheepishly))

During the last few weeks, I’ve gone in to Old Navy (ON for the hip crowd) to buy a little this, a little that, some more of this… But it wasn’t until I finally unpacked all the shopping bags and hung up the clothes that I noticed a phenomenon occurring in my closet.

If you can’t tell, that’s roughly 24 different tank tops. Most of them are different colors or with/without embellishments.

But that’s not even all of them. It is laundry day…

My name is Mom to Bee and I am addicted to tank tops.

I won’t lie. I want even more of them. And I secretly want flip flops to match each one.

And I will defend my obsession to the end. I mean, they can be pajama tops, layered together or with shirts, sweaters and/or cardigans.

Damn, that’s a lot of layering

And they prepare me to be a wife beater so there’s that.

What more could you ask for?
