I got a surprise in the mail yesterday…. my Vera Bradley order arrived early! I was visibly excited. Wiggling like a puppy or a kid on Christmas excited!
I ADORE Vera Bradley products. If I could afford it, I would own a full luggage set, and so many of their other colorful and wonderful products. I receive email updates and frequently peruse the website for sales. I had been keeping a close eye on sales lately because I had been green-lighted by Aaron to order by new purse when I came across a good deal.
Right before Micah was born in 2009, Aaron and I went shopping at a bookstore in KY and we purchased my very first Vera purse. It was my birth present! Sweet right? Absolutely. Why mess with tradition and a good thing? Before my love with Vera purses, I would exchange my purses at least 1x month. I carried that first purse for almost a year! Loved every moment with it. I got my second Vera purse as an actual birthday present from my mom in October 2010. It is still my current purse, and by far my favorite print. While still in really good shape, the wear and tear of everyday use for 1 & 1/2 yrs is starting to show a bit.
Hence the box of happiness carrying my new purse (my birth present for Kasen), plus a couple of extra pretties that were also on serious sale. Here is some Vera eye candy to start off the weekend on a happy note.
I also had a 40% coupon I found online. Overall not too shabby for my new beauties! Simple joys in life need to be enjoyed. Vera Bradley is one of my simple joys.
I am also looking forward to my shopping and sushi date with my friend Becky today! She shares my love of Vera Bradley, and we might just go scope out the new prints at a local store. More friend time..YAY! Thank you honey for watching Micah so I can work on my friendships!
Hope your weekend is as lovely as mine is shaping up to be.
