my reward (spoiling myself)

Wednesday, April 6

This arrived in the mail yesterday.
Let me tell you, that was a treat, because my day was full of sick, little boys with fevers.
After all of my babbling about the lovely Michael Kors gold watch, Anne-Marie suggested I buy it for myself after my next big project.  The problem was I just couldn't justify spending $250 on a watch.  Not now.  
Not with a new house to furnish and decorate.  Not with two little boys.

Instead, I bought this.

I love the larger face, and the weight of it is substantial.  It's too big, but I may take a picture 
again once it fits my wrist. 
 I think it's a great statement piece for the price and a nice reminder of hard work rewarded.

When was the last time you spoiled yourself?
What did you do?

I'm a bit of a nail polish junkie, so sometimes when I've finally finished a big assignment I'd let myself buy a bottle as a little treat :)
Shopping works too hehe

Good for you rewarding yourself! You SO deserve it. I just rewarded myself with two new tops from bluefly and it was totally fun when they arrived!!!

Cute watch! i love treating myself too :) maybe a little too much, so my fiance says lol. Any who, if you still want that MK watch, i suggest you sign up for Macys.com email offers because like twice a year they send out 25% coupons that you can use on anything!! There are a few exceptions like Coach, and jewelry, but thats it. I've bought myself and my fiance fossil watches and North faces jackets at really good prices and that stuff NEVER goes on sale. Check it out :)

Good for you, sweets! I love that watch - and the price! You know what your priorities are when you are budgeting for new linens ahead of jewelry :) Hope the boys are improving.

Andrea said...

Love the watch! I bought a new pair of spring shoes this past weekend. That was a treat!

Mrs. SE said...

That watch is great! Especially since it's way less than the Michael Kors, and looks exactly the same.
