Ya snooze.. ya lose! :-P

I was so excited when I got the email last week for the Kate Spade sample sale. I was eying a few of the lovely bangles marked down from $78-$98 to $25-$39. I looked through all of the sale items and then narrowed down my realistic wants to a wallet and a bangle or two, and decided to call H and "warn him" that I'd be making a few purchases for myself from the sale. He usually thinks my love for designer brands is ridiculous, but he agrees that certain items should be purchased at a higher price tag to ensure good quality and longevity. I was pleasantly surprised when he didn't seem put off at all by my impending purchases and he told me to definitely get the wallet since I needed a new one. I hung up the phone with him and went back to the site and the bangles I liked were gone! In just a matter of a few minutes! I've sure learned my lesson that if I see something online for a great price to just jump on it or else it'll be gone!

I did however purchase a new wallet from the sample sale. I got the Larabee Dot Stacy which is usually $95 for only $45.

I ordered the wallet on Tuesday, and it arrived on Friday! I was very excited to receive my new purchase as a kick off to the fun weekend that lay ahead.

Our friends flew in Friday night to stay with us for the weekend. Saturday, we got up early and I made french toast for us and then we got ready and went to Aquatica for the day which is the water park at Sea World. AMAZING! H and I caught some serious air one of the slides when he lifted our tube just a bit on the last drop.. so much fun! We also had a ton of fun in what we called the "Not so lazy river" which is a fast moving river where you don't use tubes.. there was a section that split off to two rows so every time we came up on it me and my friend B would try to race the boys who we both felt were always cheating! We only beat them a few times, but it was a workout in disguise and so much fun! We also loved the "Dolphin Plunge" which was a water slide that goes under the water into the aquarium and you can look out as you slide down at the black and white dolphins swimming around. They were so stinkin' cute! After a long day at the water park, we went home and showered and went out for dinner and drinks.

Highlight of the night was H trying the firecracker salmon rolls

More pics to come of our day at Aquatica once our friends develop the waterproof camera we trotted around with all day. Hope everyone had a great weekend, and at least Monday is now overwith too, and we're that much closer to the long holiday weekend. 


  1. That sounds like so much fun!! I've always wanted to go to Aquatica, but, the last time we were there we ended up going to Sea World. I just love it there. :)

    Oooh, and I LOVE that wallet! So cute.

  2. We had a blast at Aquatica! Hands down our favorite water park we've been to. We're looking into checking out Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon next ;0)
