These Boots Were Made 4 Walkin ...

I've been wanting a pair of boots for sooooooo long but just haven't found the right pair. All I could find were ones where the heel was too high (good luck walking in those) or to gaudy or wouldn't fit over my calves (that's frustrating), and last of all how crazy expensive they seemed to be. But now that I've lost weight and have smaller calves I couldn't believe how much easier it was for boots to fit. So yayyyyyy for me, the search for the perfect boot has resumed! Just after Christmas I took a stroll into Macy's just to check it out and staring at me were the cutest boots ever! Well, I thought so anyway. Chad not so much. But then again, do you remember this post I did back in March 2009? So, his opinion on footwear doesn't count anymore! Sorry hon, but it's true! LOL.


I was so happy when these $120 boots were on sale for $59.95. But very sad when they didn't have my size! Uggghhhhh, hate it when that happens! Days went by and I just didn't have the time to check out the other Macy's in Boise until a couple of weeks later. The kids had Martin Luther King day off so we decided to head over to the mall and see if they had my size. The only way they agreed to go and behave themselves was for me to promise a trip to Chuck E. Cheese afterwards. Hmmmmm, I really should have thought that one through a little better!

We made it to Macy's and I found the same boot but there was no SALE price on them. So I asked the helper guy if they were on sale for the $59.95 as they had been a couple of weeks ago at the Nampa Macy's. He turned the boot over and seeing the $120 price tag highly doubted that they would be on sale for that much as it would make them 50% off. But being that we were not in Jersey he was more than happy to go and check. All you Jersey friends you know what I'm talking about, don't you?! LOL. After he rang them up he looked at me kind of weird and I couldn't help but ask "So are they on sale?" He just grinned and said, "They are much better than that?" You'll never guess what they rang up for? $29.95! And . . . they had my size!!!!! I was one happy customer and nothing was going to ruin my day! Not even Chuck E. Cheese!

That is so cool!! I love to get good deals like that. I hope some day we live in a nice place with nice sales people like that...plenty of nice people here in Jersey, but none of them work in retail. ;)
