Around early January, I had started some research to find this puppy at a reasonable price since the retail was around $700. (CLEARLY out of our budget!) After price comparing for a few days, NYwatchstore.com ended up being who I ordered it from. I was a little nervous at first because the prices seemed just too good to be true, but I will have to say that I would order from these people again in a heartbeat. Although the watch was still rather pricey, their prices were lower than any other I could find, AND I received it in the mail 2 days after I ordered it. Crazy right?? At first I was a little sketched out because my shipping confirmation email was accidentally sent to my spam mailbox. I thought great, I paid for this dang watch and now I've been scammed. BUT I refrained from freaking out, and called the number on their website and a guy immediately answered. No stupid automated system, no wait, he answered immediately! He was so nice and helpful and told me the order had already been shipped and to check my spam mail for the confirmation. What to ya know? He was right and I got my order the next day.
The hardest part was waiting 2 months to surprise him with it! Needless to say, he was probably the most surprised I have ever seen him in our 4 years together. I guess that's what happens when your wife tells you for 5 straight months that you're never going to get that watch (when half of that time I had it stashed away in my closet). Sneaky sneaky!
Anyways, today we are headed to Houston to visit my side of the family for Easter. I'm so excited because I get to see all the fam, layout by the pool, drink a beer or two, and maybe hit up the Marshalls by my parents house! Yes, I know - your thinking... Aren't all Marshalls the same? Well they actually aren't at all! And since I have this ridiculous addiction to Marshalls(which you will soon come to find out), I always feel like I have to hit up the Houston Marshalls anytime I go to make sure I don't miss out on a good find. Like I do every time, I'll drag my sister and mom along so I'm not alone in the adventure;) Maybe I'll come back with a few items to add to the home decor collection, maybe I won't, but if anything, I will for sure come back with great memories of a fun weekend with the fam and of course some adorable pictures of my sweet niece! Apparently my 18 month old niece has quite the extensive bathing suit collection, so I know she will be looking like a little fashionista this weekend. I'm bringing my Cannon with me so hopefully I can snap a few shots of everyone.
Isn't she just the cutest??
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your loved ones and a Blessed Easter!
