Shoe Shopping & Credit Cards

Pin It So my son's GF, Sara, wanted me to take her shopping for a pair of boots to wear tonight. We looked all over the mall till she found a beautiful pair of brown Michael Kors boots in her size. They were originally $279, but with all the discounts the final price was $101 & change. I had a Lord & Taylor card, which I attempted to use cause that would've gotten her an additional 10% off only to find that the card was no longer valid since it had't been used for a few years.

Long story short, I opened up a new acct., got her 15% off now instead of 10%. We were very good & resisted doing any more shopping except that I needed a new perfume, which is never discounted, but was able to apply the 15% off on that. YAY! A good day was had by all. :-)

Pin It It is sooooo cold that I just can't seem to warm up today, even with 2 layers of sweats on......AND the heat's ON!!! And, today is warmer than it's been for the past couple of days too! UGH!!! Have I mentioned that I HATE the cold?!??

We're supposed to warm up a bit over the weekend. Might even reach 50 degrees! I'm ready for spring! Speaking of which, check out this bead over on etsy. The colors remind me that spring is not too far behind.

Groundhog Day

Pin It As if this winter hasn't been long enough & cold enough, Punxsutawney Phil awoke this morning, saw his shadow & projected another 6 weeks of winter. Now, I don't want to wish my life away, but this cold & snowy weather we've had this winter is REALLY getting to me. And you'd think with his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers winning the Superbowl, he'd be less inclined to dole out such a dreary forecast, but I guess with the sun shining & his shadow cast before him, he had no choice. OK, I guess I'll have to pull it together for another 6 weeks before we finally get some nicer weather.
