the time i almost had a stroke at target

for at least 2 months....i have been lusting after a pair of boots. a pair of gorgeous black riding boots that were a fraction of the price of the frye's i've also been lusting after, but would rather not pay $300 for right now (maybe one day though....maybe one day) on target.com.

a few weeks ago they had a buy one, get one 40% off...but i didn't bite the bullet.

AND THEN THEY DISAPPEARED OFF THE SITE!!! i was crushed, they were only online so i thought hope was lost.

then they returned...and still i didn't bite the bullet. i was just trying to be a good girl, and not drop the cash just yet.

yesterday....the universe totally rewarded my patience.

because as i'm browsing the shoe aisles, wasting time...i spy on a shelf a tiny glint of silver...like a pirate's treasure or something.
you see that button? oh yes....MY BOOTS WERE AT THE STORE!!!


aaaaaaand instead of being $70....they were marked down to $35, presumably to get rid of them since they're only online unless someone returns them to the store.

my heart started racing a little....would they be my size? would i love them on my little chicken legs as much as i love them on the website?

YES ON ALL COUNTS!!!

i was clutching those bad boys in my greedy little hands like a crackhead taking one last hit before heading to rehab.  like a toddler pageant queen clutches her giant crown. you get the idea...i wanted them a lot.

aaaaaaand then....i may or may not have scoured the shelves, found them in brown and tan, and then pranced my little self to the checkout as fast as my soon-to-be-booted-up-in-style legs could take me!!

so a big shout out to whoever decided to buy a bunch of boots online and hate them...cuz this girl is all the better for it!

That happens to me ALL the time with dresses from target that I like online. They mark them down SO much when people return.

oh, i love it when that happens? and you know what? i firmly believe that means they were MEANT FOR YOU!
also, i LOVE target. for obvious reasons, no?

also i meant: oh, i love when that happens! not: ?. there is definitely no question about my love for that happening.

Wow, your patience seriously paid off! Awesome deal, especially since they're real leather. I saw the brown ones online and thought even $70 was a great deal for leather.
Love me some Target :)
