So my big surprise a few weeks ago is that I was going to be in The Idaho Statesman!! It was a pretty big day for me, and super exciting! I am really proud that I accomplished my goal and was able to share it with others. Here is a link to the article, and a photo of the big spread! Enjoy!

So, I have gotten many inqueries asking how the big shopping trip went. And all I can say is AMAZING. Then I got back to the real world. I have had an extremely busy week at work and honestly just haven't had time to take pictures of everything. So for that, I am very sorry to people who have been sort of waiting. I am going to take pictures of EVERY SINGLE ITEM this weekend and upload them, but let me just tell you it was a success... I mean, I obviously have spent the week putting together the world's cutest outfits every morning with my brand new clothes, and then strut around the office saying "OH THIS?? IT SURE IS NEW!!" even if no one has asked. And I not only had a great shopping trip but a fabulous time with my best friend, Rachel. And she was SO KIND to document the first purchase. So, while I must hurry to bed and get my rest for a busy Friday at work tomorrow, I leave you with a little photo montage of my very first shopping trip after an entire year of not shopping.
If you have read my blog throughout the long, long year... you'll notice I shout out to a store called Shoe Fetish, and often. It is my understanding that Boise, ID has other shoe stores... I just don't really go to them. Nothing (and I literally mean nothing) compares to the service and unique shoes you'll see at Shoe Fetish. I have known this since they opened a few years ago. The owner, Nancy Irwin, and her daughter Bree have become friends of mine, and I really enjoy visiting the store. I follow them on Facebook and Twitter, and it has been pretty rough spending a year seeing the cute updates from them and knowing I can't have anything. However, about a month ago... they tweeted me about an amazing giveaway they had that was happening April 1. They thought I would love it. April 1... I can shop then... I'm interested. Turns out, the giveaway was just exclusive to me. As a gift for completing ONE YEAR WITHOUT SHOPPING, Shoe Fetish decided to give me this gorgeous, stunning, beautiful pair of Badgley Mischka shoes. And I own them. And they are by far the most to die for shoes I own (and honestly probably will ever own). There will never be enough words to express the gratitude for my gift... and Nancy, I cannot WAIT to come in and get the Seychelles this weekend!!
