What would you do?

I came home to find a neatly wrapped "little" box on the counter.

I asked Tyson where it came from, he was being sneaky and said, "I don't know, why don't you open it."

So I did.

Inside was a note, "To: Mrs. T Scott
From: Dr. ___
Thanks for lending Tyson to me."

And a drum roll please... the gift card is to Fashion Island and the Irvine Spectrum in the amount of $150!!!

Tyson works with the doctor quite a bit, and this doctor has given us some great things...
the $150 gift card to Morton's
$50 gift card to Starbucks

and now my very own gift card. How thoughful...

So the question is... how do I spend it?

Do I buy LOTS of stuff at Forever 21, Old Navy, Target etc and get lots of new clothes and accessories?

Or do I go to my FAVORITE store EVER, Anthropologie, and buy a couple of REALLY nice things I would normally not buy myself?

OR do I use that money towards a pair boots I have wanted for a long time, but would still have to pay $100 of my own money to get them...?

What would you do?

the boots, the boots!!

If it were me... Id get one nice "timeless" item from anthropology and spend the rest on a few cheaper "fun" trendy items at forever 21 (LOVE that place)!

FYI: Anthro. has their biggest sale of the year after Christmas. If you can wait, you'll get a lot more bang for your buck.

HAVE FUN.. you deserve it!

jenny said...

oh you lucky lucky girl! that is such a hard decision...i say get one nice thing and a few cheaper things. or maybe the boots...tricky tricky.

Jessica said...

that is so nice!

anthro. :)

Emily C said...

i'm all about getting one big thing. that way you are more likely to remember the nice big gift, rather than forget all the little things that don't last forever.

Laura said...

i would do anthro and buy something full price!

mackenzie said...

what a sneaky dog.. i bet tyson was cracking up inside.

you are one lucky duck!! anthro it is :)

i want to hear an update on what you decide

Jen and Chris said...

i also vote for anthropologie, a few nice things. You can pick up a thing here and there from old navy, but not likely to do so at anthro. I would be scared to wear 250 dollar shoes in case I mess them up or they get dirty or something.

Lisa said...

oh thats a hard one since i'm a spender, i agree buy one nice thing and then fill in with the rest! lucky duck, but i think you should make a day of it and go shopping by yourself or some of your girls!!

Jackie said...

I can't say where, just not the boots. Sorry! :(
Let us know!!!

Sheryl said...

Ooooh--how fun! I would go get a couple things that I normally wouldn't buy, but that I'd love more than a lot of cheap things! YAY--keep us posted on what you got. Nice perks :)

Sheryl said...

Oh--b.t.w. my family calls that mall the large and spacious mall hehehe--love it.

Autumn said...

Anthro or Boots, for sure! It is a treat so treat yourself to something nice!

Brooke said...

i know you can get cheaper boots than that. so spend it on clothes. brooke :)

Megan said...

How Cool! Whatever you decide, David and I agree that part of it needs to go to a nice dinner with Tyson! :) Afterall, without him there would be no dough. I recognize that this comment is coming from the guy's older sister :)
Love ya Jen! Have fun!

The boots and one thing from Anthropologie. If you have to make up a little of with your own money, heck, it's only a little!

tiff said...

Jump and scream for joy. Can't help you beyond that....

Anthropologie is my second home so I'm a bit bias. I live six blocks from the original Anthro (sit down for this...it takes over four floors!!!). I love that store and would spend it there! ;)
