Mama's Extraordinarily Ordinary Day

You ever have one of those everyday days that have little surprises mingled in? Yesterday was that day for me.

On the way to Target I found these waiting for me in the lobby:

Never thought I would see the day I bought Crocs but I need flat and comfy while carting Little Miss around in the Bjorn. 2 for $12 shipped! Score.
While at Target I picked up these

I was jonsin' for new polish and I overindulged. Why do I need Hello Kitty stickers on my nails? I don't know. Seemed like a good idea at the time. I want to add some NYE sparkle to the dark polish I normally wear.
When I arrived home these were waiting for me:

I'm going to make flower headbands for Little Miss. The lovely woman who sold the flowers included 2 extra for free and partially refunded the shipping cost. (BTW, free is on my vision board. It's obviously working!)

In the evening I received another package:
Free boots from Bearpaw (vision board again)! I wouldn't normally buy this style of shoe but they were free and they're my favorite color. Can't wait to try them out.
....and later in the evening. I made this:

Spinach with peanut butter, coconut, and curry. I don't do much cooking these days but yesterday it really came together for me. It's my quick and easy meal staple. 
What turns your everyday day into an extraordinary day?

I love the boots, and I need some brown for the Crocs, well, let's just say I love you and leave it at that!

Thank glad I am not the only nail polish fanatic. I have that same NYC sparkly polish. I got from Target andnit had a .50 cent off coupon stuck on it so I paid like .40. My husband says it makes me look like I am in middle school. I don't care I like it! Those flats are cute and most of all they look comfy. Comfy surely matters with babies in tow.

How did u get the fab boots for free. Share honey :-) I'm digging the flower clips. JoAnn Fabric, Hobby Lobby and Micheals gets me high. I can stay in those stores forever.

@Mimi We're bringing it back in 2011. Glitter nail polish is haute!

@Cami I got the free boots from a Twitter/FB that said to fill out a form for free shoes. They were giving out 1,000 pairs. I love the pair I got. I believe they give away shoes every Fri. Follow bearpawshoes or look for them on FB.
