Makes A Girl Smile

I am a pretty easy girl to please. It's the little things in life that make me happy, and as long as I have my family and friends, my world spins 'round. Last weekend, me and my girlies had a fun night out - I met up beforehand with Betsy and roamed through Nordstrom for a little bit. She is an awesome bargain hunter and loves the sales racks! Sure enough, we came across these little purse holder gadgets that were half off! Anyone hate putting their purse on the ground or on the back of your chair when you are at a restaurant? I usually end up with mine in my lap, being it is small enough, but it can be rather annoying.
Nordstrom is now selling Handbag Hangers - nifty little hooks that hang from the table and keep your purse off the ground! They are really pretty and cost $28 - $32, but keep an eye on the handbag sale tables - you are bound to find them at $13 - $15. These little cuties hold a lot of weight, too! I tested mine out on my sister-in-law's diaper bag and it held up just fine!! Betsy and I snagged ourselves each one and took them to dinner with us!
Wednesday this week kicked off Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale ... and of course Betsy and I had to get our fix! We were very good though and fought back the urges to spend on all the cute things we were drooling over. Sigh. If we ever win the lottery some day ... oh the fun we will have!
Browsing the sale, we came across these adorable Juicy tube socks ... ever since Holly Madison rocked them on Girls Next Door, I always wondered how cute they would be in real life. I debated for about 30 seconds - you all know my weakness for Juicy Couture (especially on sale!) - but I put them back. I didn't need them, nor did I need to spend the cash (even if they were under $10). Off to the next department we went ... then my hubby called and I had to defend the fact that yes, I was shopping, but honestly I was NOT spending! Boys just don't get it sometimes.
When I finally hung up, Betsy had disappeared. I casually kept looking through racks while keeping an eye out for her. A minute or two went by and I was about to call her, when she came popping up with a little Nordstrom bag in her hands ... "Here, friend!" My sweet bff snuck back over and got me the Juicy socks while I was distracted on the phone! No purchases for herself, just a little something for me. I told you she is the greatest person, evah!! Something as small as a pair of socks made me smile, but the fact that she got them just cuz she loves me ... that is way more special!! :o)

Great price, C! I didn't know Hallmark carried them!
Anniebanannie - I may or may not be giving away next month for my blogiversary. You didn't hear that from me though.
Hey, Molly! The pic of the socks are the ones I got - if they look cute enough on, I'll rock 'em in another pic and post for all to see. Ha, ha!
