You remember when I started my shopping ban? I said I was OK with shopping if I was given a giftcard. So, when I happened to get one for Christmas I was a little dumbfounded with what to do with it. I haven’t been shopping for myself in so long, the possibilities were (somewhat) endless. Do I want a new skirt? Top? Shoes? DVD?
It took me about a month to decide what I would do, which ended with me spending it on a video game for Joe, shoes for me, heating pad for my cats (I swear it’s not as weird as it sounds), and a movie. Yeah, got all that for $46.
My favorite item is the shoes. I found them on Amazon, in my size, and was geeked when I realized they were only $25! Betsey Johnson shoes for only $25? Crazy!
They’re a cotton print, with a metallic toe. I don’t know what I was expecting when I ordered them, but I’m really excited they fit. I have quite large feet, so sometimes shoes that are my size end up being a little too snug. And having never owned anything Betsey before, I didn’t know what to expect. But have no fear! If you’re in the market for anything Betsey and unsure of shoe sizing, they run pretty true-to-size.
The best part of the day has to be that black blur you see in the background of the above photo. Joe and I have been busy packing and sorting (it’s a long story, I’ll tell you all about it later), and some of the boxes are banana boxes. If you know anything about these boxes, it’s that they have these holes cut into them for ventilation. So, even though we can use them, I didn’t want the cats to climb in them and make a mess or anything, so I decided to toss a blanket over the hole.
Totally fixed the problem, right?
Wrong. Ruckus still climbed on the box, sank into the hole and has been sleeping there for three hours.
That’s my girl 🙂
