All you need to do is cry...

... and you can get whatever you want.

Cowboys boots.

I cried for these bad boys 5 years ago... in the middle of a country western store. Yes, I was grown. Yes, I cried... on the floor... like a child.

Ryan bought them for me for my birthday that year.


Sunday, Ryan took me to Jame's. It is a little boutique at the beach that I have been wanting to check out.

As I was browsing, I saw lots of things that I needed wanted.

Then I saw them. The Rock & Republic jeans that I have been needing wanting for so long. (Side note: Jeans are my thing. Earl, Seven, William Rast. Be still my heart.)

Hummm. What am I going to have to do to get these? Cry? Scream? Lay in the floor and sob like a baby? My options were not limited to but included all of these choices.

$230. Two-hundred and thirty dollars. TWO-HUNDRED AND THIRTY DOLLARS!

I had a speech planned out in my head. "Ryan, these are an investment. OHmommy makes investments all of the time. These jeans will last me for a little while forever. She invests in Louboutins and Louis'. Me, I'm just investing in jeans for now. It could be much worse. I could want..." (You like how I name drop like I am IRL friends with OHmommy? I WISH!)

Halfway through my speech that I was having in my head, I saw it.

75% off. SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT OFF! Yes, you heard read me correctly.


I called Ryan over. "Look babe! My jeans! Guess what? They are 75% off!"

I saw him calculating in his head.

He grabbed three different styles and threw them at me.

I was in Heaven!

I decided on these (with the help of my sister, her best friend, and Ry).

Yes, I included the price tag.

What a receipt? You would like to see it?

$61.11! Yayyyy me!!

Ryan's favorite part? Looking at his total savings...

In conclusion, I learned a lot from this situation. I must cry OR find a sale to get whatever I want. {grin}

That is a really good deal! I love a good pair of jeans, and as soon as I get my body back I plan to find me some more. I have a pair of seven jeans Jeff bought me many years ago, too bad they are begining to fall apart. Actually the older my hubs gets the better he gets at buying nice things. He bought me a new COACH a few months ago without a fight, and I am in love with it, it made it even better b/c it too was on sale!
