My boyfriend surprised me with a Sony Blu Ray player this weekend! My DVD player just cut out on me (I have terrible luck with DVD players) and was planning on just buying a new one. We'd been talking about getting a blu ray for a while, so I started thinking - hey, we should just get a blu ray instead of another DVD player. We were going to hit up Best Buy on Saturday afternoon but my boyfriend surprised me with one instead! I love that we can watch movies and tv shows that are available instantly on Netflix - right on my tv now! Love it, love it, love it! And totally love my BF for being so awesome! :)
I don't normally post deals that aren't replicable, because really, what's the point? But I just can't help showing off these adorable shoes I got today. When you like Famous Footwear on Facebook, you can get a $10 off $10 coupon, good for today only. If you aren't able to get to the store today, they said they're probably going to release another version for online purchases soon. These beauties were $14.99, so $4.99 after my $10 coupon. Then I used up one of my Visa gift cards from S&S that had $4.05 on it, paying only $0.94 OOP!
I feel like I'm back in ballet class when I wear these! I'm such a sucker for hot pink. Sorry about the toe cleavage. That bugs the heck out of both of my sisters, and I apologize if you're a toe-cleavage-hater too.

On a random note (as if this post wasn't random enough for you), I've decided to get my ass in gear. I used to be very diligent about walking in the mornings...and then I discovered coupons. And then my hours at work changed so that I had to be at work much earlier. And then I took on the most stressful position I've ever had and everything that wasn't about work fell by the wayside. Now that I'm out of that situation and in a much happier place but still working an early shift, I decided it was time to make exercising part of my routine again. I'm not crazy about exercising, I really don't love to sweat and I hate summer weather - the perfect combo, right? Well, life ain't perfect. So today, I hit up Famous Footwear on my way home, fixed myself dinner, watched an episode of HawthoRNe (LOVE this show!) and then put on my sneakers and went for a half hour walk. Its a start!

Yay! I just started working out today too, and it was also because of a job change. Good luck, Suz!

I've been waiting for my local gym to send me the free 2 week postcard. Used to get them all the time, then a few weeks back, I wanted my free 2 weeks. and I got it YESTERDAY! COINCIDENCE! hahahaha. I know my gym is expensive (joined years ago...$150 for both DH and I to join, then $50 a month) but they classes are GREAT AND they have Zumba! I'm going next week (this week I have to majorly clean my house since Empire Today is coming Saturday to give us an estimate to hardwood floor the house) so I'm going to go online now (thanks for reminding me) to print out the class schedule :)

P.S. The Blu-Ray disc players have really come down in price. I need to get one also.

I happen to like toe cleavage! Love the shoes. I also hate to sweat and exercise but am doing "hot yoga" twice a week and really get good benefit from it. I can't said I "like" it but "like" how I feel when it's over. 90 minutes of 106 degrees!!! Whew!!
