Zappos, You Never Let Me Down!


Monday, oh how I love you (ha!). I had to leave this wonderful scene:

…for the work scene, which believe it or not is just not as fun. (Thanks Torrance for taking that picture of us this morning by the way).

Anyway, so I am sitting here with my delicious breakfast this morning….

…getting ready to order my new shoes. The New Balance WT20’s.

I was hoping to get them yesterday, but after an unsuccesful trip to Sports Authority I decided just to order them online at Zappos. Zappos never fails me.

I must say, I rarely leave Sports Authority empty-handed. I was really hoping they had these shoes so I could get them, and have them now (I am impatient), but they didnt. They had a Nike pair that was somewhat similar but I just didnt really care for them – plus they were much more expensive.

So then I figured I would get my heart rate monitor I wanted. They had it…. for $40 more than what it was online. So after meandering around for a while….

Man, he’s such a winner. I really didnt even find any kickin new outfits – so we took off because I was hungry.

We attempted to go to Outback next door, but apparently everyone else in town did too because it was packed! So we ended up stopping at a restaurant that was on our way home that we havent eaten at before called Cities.

It actually turned out to be a little different than what I had thought, I was picturing a just mellow bar & grille type place (think Chili’s) but it was actually a little nicer than that, which was okay and good to know for future. Torrance just got a cheese steak but I got some beef tenderloin tips with sautteed mushrooms, with veggies on the side.


Everything was really good and the prices there were surprisingly good also, which was nice.


I’m off to conquer mounds of stuff on my desk! And training will definitely be happening tonight!

Oh, and if you missed it, make sure you go check out yesterday’s post where you can raid my kitchen and check out my grocery staples!

Have a good day!

  • What is something you like to order when you are out and about? (fish, steak, salads, etc)
    I order steak as you have probably noticed because it is not something I really make at home anymore since we dont have a grill!
  • Anything exciting coming up this week?
    My birthday on Wednesday, and I finally get to get my hair done after 6 months – it needs it!
  • Favorite “sporting goods” store?
    I dont really have a favorite, Sport’s Authority is just close to our house and convenient but I need to go explore some other options!

  1. i loved your kitchen peek in your last post! it was a fun read 🙂 everytime me and kev go food shopping we laugh because we both have such random tastes.

    i tend to order either fish or salads when i go out. there are def rare occassions when i order a steak..sometimes, when you have a craving you just gotta go for it!

    its my dads 50th birthday this week, so we are having a dinner for him on saturday, im excited! and yay for your birthday too!!

    fave sporting goods store is road runner sports..its where i get all my running gear. i also like sports authority because you can get really good finds on the clearance racks sometimes

  2. I keep thinking about buying New Balance shoes, but I am too addicted to my Asics. However, I always buy the online. I actually don’t go to many sport stores to buy running stuff because I feel like things are WAY cheaper online. is my favorite…as is ebay!

    I am all about the grilled chicken salad and the bunless burger when I go out to eat. Both are always a good idea!

  3. Your birthday is this week! What are you going to do to celebrate?! Maybe you could get some more shoes from Zappos….a girl can’t go wrong with too many shoes.

    I typically order soups or salads; I just feel like restaurants can just do it SO much better than I can 🙂

  4. Happy early Birthday!!! How fun! 🙂

    I really like Dick’s and Sports Authority for running clothes. And for shoes, I prefer to go to a running store, because they seem to know more about fitting me for running shoes. 🙂
