Usually, I don't bother going to that side of the store very often, because their clothing and such are so high priced, I won't buy there.
$45 to $65 for a woman's western shirt...R U Freaking kidding me?
I'm a penny pinching miser! (My Honey calls me a cheap-skate;)
But considering there were sale tags on the racks, I stopped to look. A sale tag to me is like a bug zapper to a bug....I just can...Not...resist.
Well, the sales tags were a little confusing. There was one that said 25% off and another one that said 50% off. So I asked how do you tell which ones are 25% off and which ones are 50% off?
The lady tells me that everything is 25% off and then there is another 50% off of that price.
Even my non-mathematical brain can figure out that is more than 75% off of e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. on those racks.
I started grabbing boots.
But I paused...I have multiple pairs of boots. Do I really need these?
Well, actually NO, I don't.
But my dear little girl could sure use a new pair of boots. I ended up with her last black pair because they stretched out and she has needed a replacement pair all summer.
So I run back to the house....what the heck, it's only 30 miles...grab the kiddo and we head back to the store to puruse. I'm all giddy with excitement...because you know...as long as Megan gets some new boots, surely it wouldn't hurt if momma gets a new pair too...riiiigggghhhhttttt????
Here's our haul...
The two pair on the left are mine...the cognac Ariat Showbabys and the black/rose Noconas. Megan also got a pair of the black/rose Noconas (which she wore to school today) and she scored another pair of Ariat Rowdy's(far right). Her favorite pair of boots are just like these except her old pair has a purple top. I told her to get the Rowdy's even if she wasn't a big fan of the red top because...Helloooooooo....they were on sale for $64. The Noconas came out at $60 each pair and the Showbaby's at $54.
Happy Dance, happy dance, happy dance!!!!
Meg also got a cool black belt that has 'bullets' on it...which of course, she is wearing already, for $10 and I picked up a white western shirt with some colored embroidery on it for $15.
All because I drank too much coffee and had to pee.
Well, and because the horses can never be left out, I bought another 100 gal. Rubbermaid tank.
So much for this month's budget. Maybe it is a good thing I have to start going back to work at the office? I mentioned to My Honey I needed to buy hay again...and Turk needs his shoes reset and I might as well have his and Moon's teeth done...and...and...and...
He just looked at me. (gulp)
We had company yesterday and they had a small Schnauzer. OMG...He was the cutest thing ever!!! But he was fascinated by the squirrel and watched him the whole time. I tried to get pics of them sniffing each other, but they just kept coming out blurry. They would sniff and then the squirrel would race laps in his cage and the dog would leap back and forth, then they would sniff again.
