Fantastic Friday (+deals)

Hello there! Happy Friday! I am having a fantastic Friday thus far.  We’re finally getting a break in heat and humidity in Chicago, just for one day (today), but I’ll take it!  Last night it was 82% humidity at 8pm, which is miserable.  Both Ben and I are taking advantage of this rare day (humidity is currently at 73% and supposed to drop to below 50% by this afternoon AND it’s only 73 degrees), and doing our long training runs today.  Ben’s run is 16 miles; and he’s doing it before work; but don’t feel to sorry for him.  He doesn’t have to be into work until 9am (I have to be here at 7am) and he gets off at 1.  I’m going to attempt to do 8 miles after work.  In twelve hours time period, I’m going to work 8 and run 8.  Kind of sounds miserable for a Friday, but it’s better than trying tomorrow morning when it’s going to be warmer and more humid; plus we have somewhere to be at 10:30am (details later).

Plus, I found $11 on my walk to the train this morning.

See, told you it’s a good start to the weekend.  Also, not to forget, Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale starts today! I had completely forgotten.  Here are today’s deals and steals:

·         AirTran: Flight sale for 7/28-9/1, no blackout dates

·         Gap: Up to 40% off items; in store only, prices as marked

·         J Crew Factory: Up to 30% off items; prices as marked

·         Macys: Extra 15% off with code EXTRA

·         Nordstrom: Anniversary Sale starts for the public (ie non-cardholders today); shop up!!! (plus get 5% back via

This might get a little crazy because there is a lot I’m eyeing; I need to hold onto my wallet!

I really want a gold watch and have pretty much been waiting for this sale to buy one. Considerations:

·         Old Navy: Online only, through 7/21, get 20% off with code ONNEW20

·         Zazzle: 50% off cases and skins with code ZELECTRONICS (plus get 10% back via


  1. UGH! I had pretty much decided that I didn't need a MK watch and then you had to go and post about a sale! BOOOO!! Hehe, just kidding! Maybe I'll spend some birthday money on one? :)

  2. Lol! Happy birthday! Last year I convinced myself I didn't need one and then the whole year I've pretty much kicked myself in the butt for not getting one so I think it's time!
