Better than Christmas!

20 Jul

Since I didn’t have to be to work until 11 this morning – I got up and headed to South Park Mall to partake in one of my favorite sales of the year: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!!

I always go to the sale for 3 things:  Shoes, Mac Makeup Sets and Undies.

The past 2 years I have purchased the brush sets – so I  skipped the Mac counter and moved on to the other 2 necessities.

First, I purchased 2 pair of undies.  If you have never worn a pair of hanky panky undies – you are missing out!!!  They ROCK!!!  And they are usually $21 a pair!  I refuse to pay that much – so I watch for sales.  This year – you can buy them for $12.90/pair.

Next, I hit the glorious shoe dept.  I was initially looking for some boots – but I just bought a great pair last fall – so I decided to find something a bit different (plus, why buy 1 pair of boots when you can buy TWO pair of shoes for the same price?).  I ended up with these:

The Miz Mooz ‘Slone’ Pump in cognac – and Enzo Angiolini ‘Mielee’ Pump in dark red.  I was going to get the dark grey, or navy – but the dark red was soooooo pretty!!!

Next stop:  American Cancer Society

I was there to volunteer for work – a couple of co-workers and I stuffed about a MILLION folders and then about 5 MILLION bags.  See????  Not exaggerating!

Our company is a sponsor for an upcoming breast cancer event – so I signed up for the 5k.  Yeehaw!  It’s just a “walk” – but I’m going to run it to see how I can do.  It’s not a race – so I won’t officially be timed, but I’m running it anyway.  Anyone else want to join me?

It was a crazy, long day at work – didn’t get home and have dinner until after 9 PM.  I’m wiped!!!  Off to watch some TV and unwind.
