Shopping DOES Help!!

So, I figured since I’ve been lacking sleep the past few nights I needed some cardio to make me a bit more tired. I dropped in Target yesterday after work and TJ Maxx today after work. Usually when I go to Target I browse the WHOLE store as I can find something to look at in each section. When going into TJ Maxx, I usually hit the shoes to look then, browse the other sections pretty quickly. Let me just say, I have a little fetish with shoes. Let me also say, I’ve not bought myself anything in a while. And honey, these places both have GREAT prices, haha (yes, I’m buttering him up as he gets ready to read below).

I FINALLY got the Taylor Swift cd! I am in the car so much I can catch her songs on the radio quite often and of course on the computer. However, I now have it and can pick which songs I listen to and when…over and over again. LOVE IT! PS – It this cd is on sale for $10 this week. I saw it in the Sunday newspaper.

Target had these cute little ballet flats! The seemed spring like so I bought them :)

Now below, really excited me! You should have seen me as a grabbed each pair once I spotted them. TJ MAXX HAS J.CREW SHOES! They are ALL brand new. Yes, instead of paying over $100 per pair (which each of these would be been) I got all these for less than $60 bucks!! I didn’t take pics of the ones I came home with (I probably will at some point). Instead of uploading my pics, I looked online to find the closest pics as I could.

I got these. Except the ones I got have brown, gold, silver & bronze straps.

Love these. They seemed a little snug when I initially tried them on so I will wear them around the house and decide if I want to sell them on ebay. I only paid either $14.99 or $19.99 for them.

LOVE the ballet flats. They are gold with a nice sole.

I got some cardio and spent less than $100. I’m proud. True, my sleeping has nothing to do with my cardio or how tired I am unfortunately :( It is just menopause, restlessness and now dreams! For the past two nights I’ve had dreams and wake up non-stop bright-eyed as if I need to do whatever is going on in the dream. Weird! Shopping does help my mood and I figure that is pretty important! haha..Well tomorrow is Friday! Thank GOODNESS!


I will leave you with this..and if I can ever capture my friend Kristen getting on her knees performing it, I’ll post it because it is great.

“And I said,
“Romeo save me – I’ve been feeling so alone.
I keep waiting for you but you never come.
Is this in my head? I don’t know what to think-“

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said,
“Marry me, Juliet. you’ll never have to be alone.
I love you and that’s all I really know.
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress;
It’s a love story – baby just say ‘Yes.'”

~ Love Story, Taylor Swift

    Love me some Taylor! However my cd of her’s has disappeared. I’m not pointing fingers but I did find the case in the hubs’ truck… Hmmm…

    And you’re the second blogger that says J.Crew shoes are at TJ MAXX, but I have scoured my (ghetto) one and they clearly have not gotten with the times. I think they’re trying to kill me!! Love all your new shoes!
