Inspired by Rebecca's post, and after many many weeks of putting it off, I finally went to the nail place and got my toes buffed and painted today.

When this bag first came out last year, I didn't pay much attention to it. But today at Target I saw a girl carrying the black version, and OMG I literally stopped in my track, I just could NOT take my eyes off it.
I really want one, but darn whole "owning a house" thing definitely gets in the way of my "economy stimulus" purchase!

I love rain and thunderstorm, but the water is no good for my daily heels. I've been eyeing Hunter "Original" rain boots since last fall, but so far I cannot bring myself to splurge for it.
Today as I was browsing piperlime.com I found these Chinese Laundry knockoffs, definitely cheaper but I am unsure of the quality.
Splurge, steal, or none of the above?

Yesterday I got up early and joined the local watercooled Volkswagen club for a drive out in the boonies.
In my previous life, I've done the mountain curvy roads Spring Drive with the club in my 1.8T Jetta. Four words: Sweaty palms, white knuckles. The Jetta was a lease and completely unmodded performance wise, and was easy to push it out of control (fun to most, but not a good thing to me), but regardless, I had tons of fun in all the previous Spring Drives.
With my current car, I've upgraded the OEM suspension parts with some H&R sports spring and Bilstein shocks, while aesthetically it lowers the car by about 1.75", it made the car helluva fun in the twisties. Lots and lots of fun. Knowing that I'll never be able to outrun the R32 flying past 8 other cars and mine in the next lane, I learn to love turns more and more.
Maybe I'm getting better at driving, or maybe it's because the rear tires of my current car will never spin out of control on dry road, but the Sunday drive I was actually quite relaxed and thoroughly enjoying myself, windows down, trance music blasting and just following a snake of VW in front of me.
Here we are at Fort Kaskaskia over in IL. Looking forward for the Fall Drive in 6 months time.
