My Husband Rules

I have been LUSTING after a pair of $250 dollar Anthropologie boots since August.

I have stalked the webpage every Wednesday (Anthro sale day). I have stalked all the Anthro blogs waiting for them to go on sale. They NEVER did.

At one point, I actually considered shelling out $250 dollars on them but I'm trying to be all budget-y lately and I stopped myself.

Well last week, these bowtied beauties finally went down in price by over 60%.

I went to work on Tuesday and sat in meetings all morning. I wasn't able to check the anthro sale blogs until at least 11am. Well imagine my surprise when I saw that MY boots were FINALLY on sale after five freakin' months of stalking. I clicked the link to purchase and found that they were SOLD OUT online in every single size. Boo, Hiss.

Well, most Anthro stores DO NOT sell shoes and our store is no exception. I did manage to put one call in to the Anthro store in Georgetown but they were sold out.

I didn't have time to make anymore calls because I had an appointment set up to go test an IQ. {See, these IQ tests are starting to interfere with my shoe supply}.

Well, imagine my surprise when I returned to my desk an hour later to find that my husband not only remembered my shoe size, but called all of the stores in the surrounding area and found my boots at the Anthro in Chevy Chase. Chevy Chase is about 30 miles from where I live. Thirty miles in the DC metro area means that the drive = anywhere between 35 minutes and 343423 minutes.

Well not only did he put my boots on hold, he drove to Chevy Chase on his way home from DC, bought my shoes and brought them home for me. What a man! The saleslady told him that they received no less than 100 calls for these boots and that he had called to hold mine at the PERFECT time.

Seriously, does my husband rock or what?

I will think of him lovingly whenever I rock my new cute boots.
