Purse and shoes!

I finally found these shoes!  I saw them on the Target website (out of stock of course) and new I had to have them.  It didn't hurt that I had a $50 gift card to spend either.  This was like the 4th Target that I tried and they finally had them in my size.  Well...not really but close.  I normally wear a 7 but all they had was a 6.5.  I tried on a 7 in the same style, different color and they were a little big.  So, the 6.5 was perfect!  Excellent!

And then remember the purse I posted about?  Well I did end up buying it.  I got it in the punch color.

I'm going to test it out when I travel to Ottawa this week but I think it will also double nicely as a place to hold an extra lens when I'm walking around with my camera.  I can't afford one of those fancy schmancy, pretty looking messenger type camera bags and I usually only need to carry one extra lens anyway.

Just wanted to share my recent fun purchases.

Come on March 20th!

I heard from the seller the other day that she plans on having everything out of the house by late afternoon on March 20th. So that means we'll get the keys that day! WOOHOO! Now I can finally get excited about moving.

Now we just need to:

Get a lease together for the condo - really just figure out how this whole renting thing works
Move everything out of the condo
Go back and clean the condo
Have the carpets cleaned in the condo
Think about the first project we want to tackle in the house

I'm leaving this Sunday for Ottawa for work and won't be back until really late on the 12th so hopefully Jim packs everything up while I'm gone, lol. A girl can hope right?

Everything's better with bacon

A friend of mine sent me this link today:

And I know Jill will love this! See, whenever Jill travels, she usually ends up having dinner at The Machine Shed. (I have had the pleasure of visiting this fine establishment once). The front of the restaurant is sort of like Cracker Barrel where they have a bunch of stuff you can browse through and purchase if you'd like. Well...Jill always ends up coming back with some sort of bacon product. Last time it was bacon band-aids and before that it was bacon chapstick. Oh and Jim has received some bacon toothpicks too.

Well... I am now the proud owner of Bacon Gumballs...

...they look tasty don't they? Yeah...not so much. They taste like a combination of the worst fake bacon flavor and dental tools.

I must say though, I did buy Jill some bacon mints. I couldn't resist!

You know you want it - XIII

Wow, it's been awhile since you've seen one of these posts huh? Well I have something I KNOW you'll want. Check out this awesome contest over at Epiphanie. The chance to win a Canon 5D Mark II? Yes please.

Ain't she purty...
Ok, maybe not EVERYONE would want this beauty, but I know some of my photography friends would love to add this one to their collection.

And their bags are sweet! They just look like cute purses...not like camera bags at all.
