Online Shopping and Prego Love from Rachel Zoe

This Black Friday, the bump and I decided to shop from home.  I just don't have the energy or the patience to deal with crowds today.  There are great online sales going on and I'm actually making money shopping online with ebates!  They are offering double cash back for Black Friday and giving a $10 gift card to new all members!  You can sign up here: yes, please!  I'm loving that  I earned 10% cash back with Barnes and Noble and 40% cash back for my 2012 Entertainment Book (what can I say, I love my coupons).  I've probably made about $50 so far Christmas shopping with ebates.  Love it!

Holiday Sparkle

So I really want this:
Starshine Bolero
Line and Dot
Anthropologie $138

Tried it on this morning (was mall walking with some other mommies and kiddos and could not walk past anthro).  This jacket is fabulous.  The sequins make it dressy, but its slouchy shape can be worn dressed down too.  I'm low on dough but,  it would be nice to have something sparkly to wear for the holidays.

Works prego: bump just pokes out the middle...

Works non-prego:  can wear with skinny jeans, LBD etc...

But its $$$ that should probably be spent on other people's Christmas presents... and I just had to buy a new oven...however, with the slightest bit of encouragement I will go back to anthro and buy it tonight.

So... do I do it?

The Great Boot Debate

I know... I know:  I'm the worst blogger ever.  It's been awhile, but I'm sure you understand how life can get in the way of your plans.  In the words of Flo, "happens to me all the time!"

I am in desperate need of WATERPROOF snow boots.  After four Rochester winters with cute shoes (and cold, wet feet) - I have decided to buck up for some FUNCTIONAL and WATERPROOF snow boots.

I am baffled by the lack of waterproof snow boots available in Rochester stores.  Come on people, don't you know where we live?   It snows every day all winter!  After finding nothing I liked at the stores, I began some intense online shopping.  I have narrowed it down to three pairs and need your help deciding.

Option 1
The North Face "Millennial" Boot
Option 2
Pajar "Gianna" Boot
Option 3
Sorel "Joan of Arctic" Boot

I'm thinking I might buy all three, try them on, and send two back.  Since both Zappos and Nordstrom have free shipping both ways, I have nothing to loose.  What do you think?

In the spirit of election season, I'd like to take a vote and determine the reader favorite, so please comment below with your selection.  And if you know about a fabulous boot that I have left out, by all means, place your "write in" in the comment box.

Thanks for your help and make it snappy.  I'm in a time crunch:  the snow will be here before we know it!
