Some Recent Purchases

I’ve been doing some shopping this week. Cause you know that I’m a shopper.

On Friday, I went to the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale with my mom. We go to all of Nordstrom’s sales. I love shopping for shoes there. A girl can’t have too many pairs of shoes, right?

These are the shoes that I got:

Fergie’s Guno in Black. I’m going to take these to BlogHer, so watch out for me walking around in these fabulous shoes. They make me very tall. I’m not usually a heels type of person. My mom made me walk all around the shoe department before we purchased them.


and these, Ed Hardy tie dye low rise shoes. I love my Ed Hardy slip-ons. They are a staple of my daily wardrobe. This will be my third pair of Ed Hardy shoes. I’m not too keen on their flashy clothing, but I do like their accessories.


I also got some black cargo pants and a Lucky jeans top. Nordstrom is my favorite department store. I can always find something there to buy.

Today, I went to Border’s Books to get some new reading material. My reading well has been very dry lately. I go to the bookstore about once a week and never seen to find anything to buy. That’s probably why I’ve spent some much time on the Internet. I also subscribe to like 20 magazines.

I got the following books. These should keep me busy for at least a week. Seriously, not joking. I read fast.

The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan
Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs
The Girls from Ames by Jeffrey Zaslow

Oh, and I got some new running socks too, plus a Nike tank top. I wore the tank top for my race today. Stay tuned for my race report!

I love Nordstrom's too. They just seem to have it all don't they :) Love your new shoes, and I love that your mom made you walk around in them, just to be sure. What a good mom.

I was at Nordy's today but I was rushed and bought nothing. Need to go back - it's my favorite too. Love the shoes! I'm a shoe-aholic. Do we have to wear girly clothes to blogher? I haven't even thought about it yet and I live in jeans and shorts ... so maybe I SHOULD.BTW - think I'm going to call your doc and make an appt for a consult. You liked him, right?

I love Nordies. Love it. And you're so right, you can always find something there. Those shoes are hot. And can go with anything!!!OK, I just bought some Pearl Izumi running shoes. Have you heard of these? SO light weight and soooo comfy. Just started running again so I thought new shoes were a must.

I like the heels, very cute! Not a fan of Ed Hardy clothes either, the shoes are not too bad though. Those sound like good reads, have not read any of them though.

The shoes are cute -- both of them! I agree about the Ed Hardy clothes, though!

The Middle Place is fantastic. Enjoy! You should join www.goodreads.com. It's fun and easy. Look me up if you do! Casey Starnes.We LOVE Nordstrom sales. I get all my kids' shoes there (Keens, mostly) and they allow me to purchase a season ahead and guess at sizes....then return when they wear them if I got it wrong. Such great service!
