whoop whoop!!

okay, i am FREAKING OUT! so many good/random things happening today!

let me back up. i arose this morning, thinking a totally average (if not moderately boring) day was ahead of me. how wrong i was. (dun dun dun....)

while in the shower, i heard a knock at the door. a few minutes later, david walked into the bathroom and said "it's a package...for you! from your mom!" huh? i figured i must have asked her to mail me a shirt i forgot at home, or some lavendar, or something very pracitcal. when i opened the box, though...it was anything but pracitcal! it was fun! it was...peanut butter filled pretzels and 2 calvin and hobbes books that my little brother had stolen from me!! and a TWENTY DOLLAR BILL! I WAS SO EXCITED!! $20 means a date night this weekend!! i'm using too many exclamation points!! THANK YOU OFUM!

then, i put on one of my husband's shirts (sometimes it's just a day where i want to wear david's shirt) and came down to the store. i saw a really cute entry mat DIY project on-line, and the picture had a girl wearing red TOM shoes. i thought they were so cute! i headed over to their website to check out how much a pair like that would set me back, and found these beauties instead:

TOMs makes LACE-UPS?! SINCE WHEN?? i'm kind of thrilled about that! i don't know if i'll be getting them anytime soon (they're a cool $67..ouch), but it's nice to know the option is out there. i love Love LOVE them.

and then, finally, i went to one of our discount supplier's websites, and found an item that i had seen on a different (more expensive) wholesale site. i'd really liked it, but decided that for the price, we could get something a little more exciting for the store. today, though, i found it for a mere THIRD of the price from the original website!

i don't know why i love it so much (it's so basic), but i just do. i ordered it in TWO colors and they're on their way as we speak. i love my job. it's just been a really excellent morning...and my blue boots are coming in the mail tomorrow!

  2. Yay, yay, yay! I'm so glad your day is happy. Let me know how that date night goes. I love you to pieces, my little pretty!!


oh, hey!

i think you're smart, pretty, and entitled to your own opinions.

i'd love it if the feeling was mutual!
