My amazing Old Navy deals!

I got SUCH deals the other day!



And I was so excited about them.  I had to share them with you!


So, the story:

…was that I had to return a baseball shirt that I’d gotten Jackson that was too small for him.  While he and hubs did some shopping at a tech store, they dropped me off at Old Navy to do the return.

And of COURSE I did a little browsing after I’d returned the shirt, since they weren’t back yet….

Plus, I had a $10 off coupon.


And the deals!

Everything in the picture above was already on sale…some for gasp-worthy prices.  And after they applied my coupon, here’s the listing of what I spent:

  • Leopard cardigan sweater:  $5.82
  • Flannel pajama pants:  $2.70
  • Leopard fleece infinity scarf:  $0.77
  • 3-pack ankle socks:  $1.94
  • Stevie camel sueded pants:  $4.25

And my grand total:  $15.48!  (Clearly there is a kitty theme going on here, I realize that!)


Finch’s and my mom is usually the one who finds deals like this.  But this was so exciting, I had to share them with you!

Have a great weekend, friends.

Enjoy!  –Wren

Things we love…my three sons!

My three furry sons…all rewarding in their own special ways. Companions, comforting presences all, snugglers all; I couldn’t imagine not sharing our lives. Yes, the dogs are quite smelly (puppy breath long gone) and they do have a tendency to eat questionable things…so now I kiss them on the tops of their heads. The kitty, of course I kiss all over!


three sonsThe boys: Oz (Bengal) front and center 7.5 months, Sam (Maltese) left, 18 years young, Oliver (Pug), 11 years young. All co-existing peacefully and enriching our lives (even though they do spend an inordinate time sleeping).

Enjoy and share your pets with us!! Finch


My closely guarded shopping site….fabulous bargains, designer finds!!

I’ve been addicted to this shopping site for quite a while now…I actually have a credit staring me in the face right now…Oh the wonder of one-click shopping.

Ladies…don’t ever save your credit card info when any shopping site asks you too…you are doomed from then on; it’s just too easy to impulse shop.

Okay, back to fabulous…

Today’s offerings that I may have indulged in…Theory and Kenneth Jay Lane, Armani and French Sole etc, etc, etc.

Enter Rue La La: Every day I receive and e-mail announcing a new sale (at 11:00 EST) fabulous brand like Kate Spade, Tory Burch, 7 for all Mankind, etc. It’s a fashion lovers dream…Not just clothing either! Jewelry, housewares, shoes, trips….Sigh. Best part? Deep discounts on everything, but things can get sold out pretty quickly, so you have to act fast.

I have it on my i-phone now…triple threat. Especially when I’m sitting outside home depot waiting for my husband to buy whatever necessary widget…what’s a girl to do??

The site definition: “Rue La La is… an exclusive, invitation-only online destination where Members discover premier-brand, private sale Boutiques, each open for just a brief window of time. Our focus is a well-edited collection of sought-after offerings from the best brand names in the world – combined with helpful service.

Membership is free. It’s also invitation-only. Members shape the community by inviting new Members – and getting a $10 Rue La La Credit when each new friend places their first order.

The discovery of something unexpected, something that imbues the day-to-day with a little magic – these are the moments we long for. And you’ll find them here.
