Shopping Luck at New York & Company

I got a promotional email from New York & Company last night, informing me that they'd have secret gift cards to the first 100 customers, in varying amounts.  Each store had two $100 gift cards to give out.  When I got out of bed and finished eating breakfast, it was close to 10:30 AM (the store opened at 10).  I figured it'd be worth trying my luck.  When I got to the store, I realized that they weren't giving the gift cards at the door, but at the cash register when you checked out.  Ah, ok.  I knew there would be a catch.  As I was looking around, one of the cashiers rang a bell and yelled "$100!!"  Hah, that's great!  So it wasn't just a gimmick to get people in.  I mean, it was, but at least they were being truthful.

I picked out 2 dress pants (one navy, one black) because the ones that I have are too loose-fitting and not very flattering.  They rang up $23.48...even though the sign said $29.  I was already happy.  Then when the lady gave me the secret gift card, I tore off the top label and it said $25!  I basically got a pair of pants for free!  That's just nuts.  Yay! :)

When I got home, I got working on the pumpkin cheesecake that I'm bringing to my family's Thanksgiving dinner.  I learned my lesson from last year and used a hand mixer instead of my KitchenAid to get real smooth cream cheese instead of slightly chunky.  Fingers crossed that it's totally yummy for tomorrow. :)
