Cowboy boots

I once had a pair of boots, I was about 16 and I had saved cleaning money, baby sitting money and any odd job I could do to get these boots. I bought them at Nordstrom and at the time they were hugely expensive, 100 dollars. I wore these boots everywhere and abused them as any as a 16 year old would do, well I decided since I had spent 6 months earning them that if anything were to go wrong with them that I would take them back and get a new pair, much to my sisters dismay I returned those boots 4 or 5 times, each time they took them back and gave me a new pair to distroy once again. Was I stupid? The answer is YES. Finally I took them back and they no longer carried that boot any long so what did they do? Gave me my money back. This is not a testament to Nordstrom's greatness this is a long ago memory that was kindled when I found some similar boots on Etsy.

Fun in the sun

I need a little warmth, a little sun and a little relaxation. January always hits me hard with the blahs. Last year it lasted from January-March, and I did not have the creative juices flowing. I don't know why but it always gets me down. I found out yesterday that we are going to Cancun in the next few weeks, you can imagine my joy!
Need a passport asap
Need to go to the gym
Need a new swimsuit (cute ones are impossible to find)
I hope to combat the blahs this year, hopefully this trip will do the trick.
