Orange You Glad?

I am always on the hunt for that most elusive of items – an inexpensive pair of shoes that doesn’t look cheap.

There’s a reason why most of the affordable ones are priced so low. The stitching looks bad, or the material is stiff and hard to wear (especially for a wide footed lady like myself).

Aah, but these – finding these beauties was like hitting the jackpot.

While perusing the Target clearance racks in search of deals on shoes for the kiddos, I stumbled by happy accident upon these orange gems, nestled in among the toddler sandals. It was as if they were waiting there just for me.

And when I checked the price tag (a mere $14.98 plus an additional 5% off for shopping with my red card, of course!), I swear those fluorescent lights shined a little brighter, and somewhere in the distance a Hallelujah chorus began to play (though that could’ve been me singing, I was so full of glee).

My new shoes even passed the Jane Lantz quality test – and that, my friends, is an incredible feat in and of itself.

A gloomy winter’s-never-gonna-leave rut. I needed a pick me up. And after a purple scarf in my closet caught my eye,… [Continue Reading]

    Take Me Back
  • You guys. I told you yesterday how crazy this weekend was. But seriously – I am sooo glad that I went through with my plan to surprise my husband with a master bedroom makeover.

  • This weekend was a whirlwind! My husband headed out of town on business on Thursday, and extended his stay until Sunday evening to stay with his uncle. Meanwhile, the kids had more activities schedule during those four days than you can shake a stick at (what does that phrase even mean?!). It seemed that just… [Continue Reading]

    Deep Sigh of Relief
  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!).

  1. Those sandals are so cute! And only $14.98??? Lucky duck. I might have to go searching my Target today!

  2. Those are so cute! I just found two cute pairs of sandals at Target last week and had a buy one, get one 50% coupon, so I had to bring them both home with me! I think Target has nice affordable shoes.

  3. I love those sandals! We don’t have Target here…yet. Apparently, it’s coming. But I definitely stock up in the U.S. in general on shoes :: deals are ridiculously better than here….especially with the extra “x” percent off sales that often run.
