Spoiled Rotten


I will have a full San Diego recap coming up later this week, but I wanted to share with you some of my birthday goodies.  I felt beyond spoiled on my special day.  

I had convinced myself Marco was getting me camera lenses.  Logically this wouldn't have made sense because we set a firm $100 limit for birthday's every year.  I just assumed he would buy one from one of his many friends who love photography and have a million lenses.  That was not the case...

:::Setting hotel room in SD overlooking the water and Petco Stadium:::

M hands me a card and as soon as I open it I immediately start crying.  
He sold his light meter he used in college and gave me cash. 
Now, I know some of you are thinking this is kind of impersonal.  
The thing is I rarely go out and spend money on myself, much less buy items that aren't on sale.
We are on a pretty strict "getting out of debt" plan and fun things like new dresses and shoes aren't high on the priority list.
I don't want you to think we are broke because that isn't the case, we just choose to spend our money on nice dinners out or save it for vacations.

I have spent a little bit of it on a new hobo wallet, which I have been wanting for years.

What I can't wait to order/purchase this weekend are these two items!

I am thinking about saving the rest for that camera lenses I was convinced I was going to receive this year:)

I have those Jack Rogers sandals and while they are adorable...be prepared to have wrecked heels until you break them in. There is a raised pattern on the leather part of the heel and if you wear them for long periods of time you will develop some amazing blisters! I thought it was just me but my BFF said the same thing happened to her. Once you break them in (say 20-30 wears), they are good to go!
