Reunited

Right before we left the states I had made a few purchases. ((giggling a little bit here)) Yeah. Right. When don't I make a few purchases? Well today I was just looking into the closet and unpacking one of the boxes.

I found them. My total steal. Never even worn. Sshhh. Don't tell dh. Because he totally thinks that I own enough pairs of shoes already. But that is just plain silly. Who does? Now I love a good pair of boots. And sometimes these boots can be um, expensive. But super sale shopper that I am, I bought this particular pair of boots that had a retail price tag of $149.00, for only $37.25. Yes folks, they were 75% off. At Dillard's. Because they are one of my favorite stores of all time. They have the best sales. Now what person in their right mind would actually not buy them? I mean, you couldn't just leave them there! They are totally must have. And even if I didn't have anything to wear with them, which I'm quite sure I might, I would have bought them anyway. They were just too good to pass up! I have no idea what brand they are, I just know that I love them. And I can't wait to wear them! So I have. Since I can't go anywhere right now, I just wored them around the house a little bit. Up until I had to chase a small child who had something metal and dangerous looking in his hand. {Note to self, start exercising again. That little boy is getting really fast.}



And here is the second item that I have recently been reunited with. Our new printer/scanner/copier/fax machine. We literally bought this the day the packers were at our house. We needed a new printer, and our scanner was pretty much dead. And every once in a while we have had the need to fax something, but did not own a fax machine. So we went to Best Buy and looked at other models of printer combos. Little did we expect to run into a Kodak representative in the store. He happened to share a few gems about this printer with us and basically sold us on it. The quality of pictures it puts out is outstanding. I can't wait to get it plugged in and working. I have tons of pics to print up! The best thing of all, is that the ink is cheap! $9.99 for the black and $14.99 for the color. Even though we have only printed a few test pictures when we first unloaded it, I already know it's a winner. I totally recommend this printer!

OK, now this is for you Stephanie. I've been asked to supply a few pics of the view of my balcony. Well, I decided to throw this one in too. I snapped this as we were driving through town. Just your basic city street. Nothing exciting, but wanted to share a little of Santiago with you, my readers! ;) OK, not these are not the best pictures ever, but they are indeed taken from my bedroom balcony. Oh, and the net is a safety feature required by the US embassy if you have children. It's also a good feature for me, as I am terrified of heights.

And although the mountains in the background are not that clear, they are in fact the Andes Mountains! Not the best view, but I can see them still! (from my bedroom)

And here is another picture of them from my dining room.


Enough from me right now. I'm off to read some blogs. I've discovered that I really like doing this. And last night I was up waaaaay past my bed time!

Happy POW! Thanks for the pictures of Santiago... its funny, that first picture looks exactly like one I might take of a specific spot in Salt Lake City... Yet it's different, and more poetic maybe? EH- thanks for the tiny tour of your world in Santiago.

Um....will you marry me....

I have almost those exact same boots in black....also purchased at Dillards.

We could swap "purchases"....

GREAT boots- you got one of the best deals I've ever seen!

Santiago seems like a pretty cool city. I loved seeing the pictures! Were you the one driving? Is it easy to drive there?

Susan said...

Love those boots! And that view of the mountains is incredible. Don't think I would get tired of seeing that every morning.

anti-supermom said...

I really hope you aren't *travelin'* in those boots - but they are way hot! Those mountains look gorgeous.

Happy POW.

It would have been offensive not to buy those beautiful boots for such a bargain price.

Who can argue with 75% off. Hope your hubby doesn't read your blog, don't want you getting in trouble.

CaraBee said...

I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as too many shoes. And I would never have left those boots! Great views from your balcony!

Susan said...

Love, Love, Love the boots!!! The pics of the view out your windows are amazing!

PS. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll be sure to visit you again!

Those boots look like a great buy. I hate boots though. Love the looks, but I can't stand wearing them. They hurt my ankles. I'm afraid I've passed that along to my second child too.

What a nice view from your balcony too.

Diane said...

I LOVE those boots and at 75% off, you cannot complain.

The view is beautiful!
