ok..so it's finally cold here in Florida
(yeah yeah..I know it's not 'cold' like most places, but for me -- it's COLD)!
I bought the ladybug a pair of faux Uggs (from Tar-jay).
They are adorable. I never set out to be 'that mom' but I wanted some too!!
I justified it by saying they would be perfect
for running the lizard to pre-school.
Easy to slip on when I'm rushing around.
WELL....they didn't have my size.
I went to a few other places to look for an acceptable replacement.
I ended up with these:
which now meant I needed to get Skinny Jeans - after reading Amanda's post over at Serenity Now (if you're not following her blog - you must!!)
I decided to give them a go!
Now 2, that's right 2 pair of skinnys are on their way :)
Back to the original boots I wanted...
after having no luck anywhere else, I ordered them online.
Where I also got these:
I figured since I was already getting the skinny jeans,
I needed some 'casual' boots to show off too.
Oh..here are the boots that started this whole shopping spree:
please don't judge - I know I said it's too hot to wear them in Florida.
I'm a big baby and my feet are just too cold!
What makes my spree even better....
the first boots were 60% off, making them just my price!
The other 2 pair were paid for with a gift card, making them a gift.
The jeans were also on sale...
so the total of my madness today was less than 1 pair of authentic Uggs.
And that is totally how I roll :)
Anyone else have days like this?
Where you get into some crazed shopping trance?

**On a totally personal note...
my dad has returned safely home after being overseas for the past year.
I hope to see him next week - can't tell you what a relief it is.
I made these 'yellow ribbon' toppers/tags to use on a little Welcome Home gift.
I want to share these with you.
If you're sending a care package overseas, these would be a nice touch.
Maybe you know a soldier who is just home...or who will be deploying -
add these to a gift & let these be a reminder of your (our) support.
