Several months ago I received an Athleta catalog in the mail. I had never heard of Athleta and till this day, have no idea how I got the catalog. Nevertheless, I thought it had really cute workout and swimwear. I meant to order a few items from it but never did. Fastforward to last Friday when I read a tweet from @ChicAlert:
"@ChicAlert: Athleta warehouse sale in Petaluma, CA. Deets here: http://bit.ly/4aDkVr (via @athletaofficial) Fri 9-6. Sat 10-4p sun 10-2"
As soon as I read this, I knew I was going. Being rather last minute, none of my friends were able to come along, but it didn't matter, I went anyways - solo.
Although its only about 60 miles away, I knew it was going to take over an hour and half just because of traffic. Luckily, it was a beautiful day in the Bay Area and I passed the time listening to KNBR and their "Dodgers Suck" rap contest (pretty entertaining). :)
My favorite part of the drive was crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.
I got to Petaluma in just under two hours; by this time, I was ready to shop!
It was the second day of the sale and clearly, the goods had already been picked over. But I was able to find some deals:
And this reusable Athleta bag for $4:
The drive home went by much faster, and I decided to take the scenic route home, through the city.
By the time I got home, I was starving and stopped off to have a nice lunch on the water!
Great way to spend a Saturday!
