Yesterday we headed up to Whistler to attend the Olympics - couldn't have had a more beautiful day!
We left here at 7AM and once we arrived we headed into the village to stroll AND to get red mittens!! These red mittens are the #1 souvenir of the 2010 Olympics,and they cannot keep them in stock.
When we arrived to the official olympics store, we encountered problem #1 - a line up to GET IN THE STORE! Can you believe it - and of course we waited in line!! As we were waiting in line we heard the sad news - problem #2 -only junior mitts were left! ARGH!! It wasn't even 10AM!! I decided once we were in the store that I was going to go look at the kids mittens to see if I could fit into a XL - I do have small hands and I was desperate!! I got over to the bin and it was apparent the only size left was SMALL. I dug around hoping to find a pair, but I didn't.
What I DID find was one mitt - YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING!?! My hand fit into it and now I was determined to find it's mate. I didn't want to ask any of the others digging in the bin, because if they found the mate, it could've turned UGLY!!
I turned and quietly asked a clerk if she thought there might be a match and she stated that sometimes they fall under these big bins, she bent down and voila' pulled up a dust bunny filled glove with a tag - adult size s/m PERFECT!! Happy, happy, me!
Now, as you can see, I fit in with the group!
Lot's more to blog about the Olympics, but since I won a gold medal in Red mitten shopping, I figured I'd better share this first!!!
