Wanted: A Pair of Reasonably Priced Boots

Okay blogger-land friends, I need your help!  We all know that I have a slight serious shoe addiction, an addiction that I LOVE to feed often. 

Hunter Boots from Nodstrom
Meet my fabulous birthday present from back in September.  I absolutely LOVED these Hunter boots, that is, until I tried them on.  Between the stiff rubber and the placement of the seams in the sock inserts they killed my heels.  It would have been blister central people.

So, finally, I decided to give up on these lovely boots and return them.  {sigh}

Of course, I already had a back-up shoe in mind......
.......riding boots.  Well, until I saw the price tag of these beauties {$318.00.....ummmm, no thank you).  I think if I spent $318 on these Hubs might divorce me or commit me to a mental hospital for my addiction.  So, I started browsing around trying to find a similar pair that I like that has a much more reasonable price tag but unfortunately I always come back to these.

So, my friends, do any of you have any suggestions for a pretty pair of boots that are a.) reasonably priced, b.) comfy, and c.) fabulous?!  Help a girl out!

Thanks and have a wonderful day!

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

The day of love.......

........shouldn't everyday be a day of love?!

Honestly, I find it hard to get into Valentine's Day.  It just seems like another day of the week to me.  Hubs isn't sure whether he should believe me when I say this or if I am just testing him.  I promise, I truly do mean it when I say that Valentine's Day isn't that big of a deal to me.

So, instead of going out to some packed restaurant we will be getting take-out from Johnny Carinos and eating dinner at home with our two bullies! Now, that sounds like the perfect evening!!! I can throw on a pair of sweatpants, I don't have to cook or clean up after cooking, we don't have to leave the house feeling guilty because Buerly and Rooney gave us the "Woe as me" look, and we don't have to deal with trying to get a last minute reservation.

Hubs and I did exchange Valentine's Day gifts yesterday (hypocrite, I know).  But we kind of cheated and just used the holiday as an excuse to go shopping to buy what we needed wanted.  So technically it really wasn't even a Valentine's gift.  Haha!

Hubs had promised to get me a fun/fashionable watch for Christmas but wanted me to pick it out. Thanks to several gift cards and Valentine's Day {cough, cough} I ended up getting two watches! :-)

Oh how I LOVE these two watches!!! I have a really nice watch from my parents that I wear everyday but have never had a fun/fashionable watch before.......until now!!

And for Hubs.......well, he needed a new pair of dress shoes so we ordered the shoes that he wanted from Cole Haan and hopefully they will arrive soon!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!!!! :-)
