I didn’t have much to do this weekend. I love having nothing to do, until it comes down to the fact that I have nothing to do. When that happens, my standard “go to” is to go shopping. As usual, I hit up all the Marshall’s in the Austin area. This was my lucky day!! I found a pair of brown riding boots that actually fit on my legs!! I found a pair the other day, but they were $150, and I’m cheap. I found these for $50. Since I got such a good deal, I decided I would just buy another fun pair for the winter!! Here are most of my new clothes. I was actually lucky and bought a few other things that are not in the pictures, too. 🙂
Riding boots are my favorite!! I just can’t usually find andy to fit my legs!! 😦 These are Unisa and fit!!
These were just fun boots, so I got them. They are Steve Madden boots.
I was really excited today when I found these UT running shorts at Marshalls!! I have been watching the Nike UT shorts for a long time, but they are really expensive and the Bevo looks like an iron on. I’m not even sure what brand these are, but the Bevo is embroidered on, so he should last for as long as I have the shorts.
Did I mention that there are a lot of UT students and Texas Exes in the Olympics!!? So far they are doing really well! hree Olympic medals for men’s swimmers today — Brendan Hansen, bronze, 100m breaststroke; Ricky Berens and Jimmy Feigen, silver, 4x100m freestyle relay (qualifying swim). Keep it up and Hook ‘Em Horns!!!
As you may have noticed, I’m a little obsessed with sundresses. Today, I was headed to the grocery store when I decided to stop in to Ross For Less instead. I usually don’t go there because I never find anything, but today I got lucky! I found 3 sundresses, a cute halter top and a cute trunk for my office. Just yesterday a friend and I were talking about how I needed something to put all my costumes for work in rather than have to bring them home. I lucked out when I walked in and found the perfect trunk for only $50!! I never even made it to the grocery store!
This will be cute for almost anything! (Except work! lol!)
While at the Walmart in Pflugerville today, I ran across the Slipper Genie!! This slipper claims to clean your house as you walk around. Say no more!!!! I was SOLD when I read that. I hate to sweep and with my new dog, Cooper, shedding everywhere, it’s getting to the point that I have to sweep daily. Well, they were only about $5.00, so I bought them and I’m trying them out to see if they work!! They’re actually kind of comfortable, too! The other nice thing about them is that the sweeper part is velcroed on to the bottom of the slipper, so after a day of walking around my house cleaning, I can just remove the slipper sweeper part and throw it in the washing machine. I sure hope this works. I will NEVER sweep again if it does!!!!
I haven’t done a shopping blog lately. It’s not that I haven’t shopped, because believe me, that never ends with me. I’ve been on my death bed for the last couple days, so since I could stay awake for more than 2 hours straight, I decided it was time to pamper myself a little bit. I went to two Marshall’s and found lots of cute stuff. Since it’s summer, I need lots of cute sundresses and I was in need of a swim suit since Cooper decided that the one I bought for this summer would taste really good and eat it. I also bought some shoes and flip flops, but they’re kind of boring, so I won’t share those in this blog.
This little garden gnome was just funny, so I went ahead and bought him. I think I’ll name him Josh after my favorite player.
I love shoes. I have way too many, but when I was in Dallas over the weekend, I decided I needed another pair. I’ve never really worn heels very often, but lately I’ve really liked all the heels I’ve found. I got these at DSW. I was excited because they were on the 40% off rack. I went through the store and found the same pair out on the floor, but they weren’t on sale. I feel like I got a deal!
It’s official. We are finally going to take the plunge and get new floors in our family room. We’ve been fighting the smell of dogs since we first built this house, so I’m hoping hardwood floors will help us get rid of some of those odors. We’ve decided to go with bamboo floors because they are supposedly very durable. I hope they are right about that! This afternoon, I went by Floor & Decor one last time to make sure I like the color that we have chosen. I think it’s going to work.
Since I was already in the area, I decided to go to my favorite store, MARSHALLS!!! While I was there, I bought two sundresses, a shirt and a pair of sandals. I’ve always wanted a white sundress to wear with cowboy boots. I have no idea if it even looks good on me, but I don’t really care because it’s a look I’ve always liked. I can’t wait to have a reason to wear this cute outfit.
I was about to put my new clothes away, when I got distracted and got on Pinterest. While I was looking on there, I got the great idea to create my own Polyvore type picture with my own clothes. I wish I had something to do a better backdrop, but the carpet really didn’t work. It was kind of fun putting it all together! I wish I had a fancy camera to take professional looking photos. I really love taking pictures! 🙂
To be honest, is it really ever NOT flip flop season in Texas? I’m pretty sure I wear mine year round. This weekend, Cooper took me leaving my favorite pair of day-to-day flip flops in the den as an opportunity to eat them, so when I ran out to buy a new hair dryer, I took the trip to the big city as an opportunity to stop in to Marshall’s to look for a new pair. I was looking for a more casual pair, but when I saw these Coconut flip flops with zebra stripes and flowers, I couldn’t resist buying them! I’m really not sure what zebra stripes and flowers go with, but I’m sure I’ll find something!
I absolutely love the Nike running shorts. I love how they have that flap of material on the side that helps hide my “problem area”. The only thing I don’t like about them is the price. I’ve found them costing anywhere from $20 – $30. I don’t usually like to spend that much money for shorts that I only wear to run, but I usually do anyway. Well, I was really excited when I was at Marshall’s and found them for $14.99!!! If they would have had more, I would have bought them all. This may mean a trip to all the Marshall’s in the area to find some more!!
