Cool Post-Christmas Find

I finally took the plunge and purchased a pair of boots that all of the cool kids are wearing. No, not UGGs. But, a similar boot from L.L. Bean, the "Wicked Good Shearling Boots - Cable Knit style." The name reminds me of the Saturday Night Live skit where Rachel Dratch and Jimmy Fallon played kids from Boston who always used the term "Wicked." Not a popular slang term in these parts, but I digress.

The boots were on sale in the catalog we received yesterday. Then, when I logged on to L.L. Bean's website, they were $30 less than the catalog sale price. Plus, I had a $10 gift card. SCORE! (I must have locked into a special online deal yesterday, though, because when I went to L.L. Bean's site today, the boot was back to its original sale price. A sign that I clearly was meant to purchase these boots at the moment I did. :)

So, these warm and fuzzy numbers will hopefully arrive on my doorstep soon. Just in time for the weather to bump up to 60 degrees this weekend. But, hey, there is still plenty of winter left and I imagine these boots will be keeping me toasty-warm over the next few months.

Any post-Christmas sales that you've taken advantage of? Good deals? Share!

Happy New Year!

I love those boots. I just got a pair of Wicked shearing clog slippers for Christmas, and I love them! So comfy and warm. Enjoy them.
