If you didn't already know this, saturday was Old Navy's $1.00 flipflop sale. Kylah and I went to the Old 2 Gold sale at Notre Dame(more on that later) and decided to stop by Old Navy on the way home.

This is what we saw when we pulled into the parking lot.

We were told by the cashier that several people started fist fighting and trampling children to get to these $1.00 flipflops. Some people were in line at 4:30am. There were 7 police cars at the store when we got there. S E V E N. Because of flipflops! Of course, the local news was there too!

I bought myself a pair of navy, brown and black. Kylah got brown and black and we bought a pair for Heather and a pair for one of Ky's friends. I guess that earlier that had tons of colors. But were pretty picked over by the time we went in. There was a limit of 5 pairs per person. And they were only letting in a few people at a time!
