Congrats you two - he is the best thing in the world.
As my good friends and family know, these flip-flops have been a bit of an eyesore for many many years now. I purchased them in Kimberley back when I was living down there and I have had them and worn them every summer since. As I wrote last year about them, there was something about them I just couldn't let go of. Whether it was they perfect way they conformed to my feet, the story behind purchasing them or the fact that if I actually put them out of their misery and threw them out, a part of my life would also be thrown out with them.
Well. More people have started chirping up about them lately and I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase a new pair of sandals. They are a far cry from the $17 flip flops that have lasted me the last 8 years but at least I know these new ones will carry me threw at least the next 8 years.
And no, I'm not engaged but planning for your wedding is like planning your retirement so really - no better time than now to start thinking!
After a delicious tasting of their whites and both reds (Ping and Rover - both names of the Ranch's dogs who have passed on) we were out to finally have some food. Ok, so it was only cheese and grilled vegetables, but it was at See Ya Later Ranch and I couldn't be happier.
And I was with my man so it was of course, a perfect day.
Thank God for hot vacations.
Now, being a girl I should have automatically known better than to get rid of my purses because right now I only have one, whereas before I had about 6. Stupid Megan...
I ended up selling my 4 Matt & Nat purses on Kijiji for the low low price of roughly $30 each. I thought it was great that I was getting rid of them - more room for something else in my closet...
Well shit. I went into one of the accessory stores in Southcentre mall last week and come across a wall of bags that looked awfully familiar. After picking one up, the sales girl came over and asked me if I had heard of the new Samsara line:
Me: "Not at all... they look very Matt & Natish though"
Salesgirl: "In fact, Matt and Nat have started a new line called Samsara which will be the same price range as the old Matt & Nat purses were. They have moved the Matt & Nat line to a more higher-end label now, retailing for about $350 and up".
Me: "...... I just got rid of all my purses for like, $30 each. Are you kidding me?"
And just like that, I left - absolutely pissed off that I got rid of my purses. Seriously, how would I have known? I guess I should have just not been so stupid as to getting rid of my purses.
