Last Day Of NAVC

Last night I did not end up going to the Florida mall. It would have been $35 each way for the taxi, and $70 is just too much for a ride to the mall! Instead, the hotel staff directed me to the Orlando Premium Outlets, which is kind of an outdoor mall with lots of great prices. It was only 1/2 mile away and cost 8 to get there and 4.40 to get back!

There was a lot of stores that I wasn't interested in, and because I wasn't really looking for anything but dress shoes, I didn't go in alot of them. I did need a winter jacket, but I obviously was not planning on getting that in Florida. But there was a Columbia outlet, so I checked it out. And sure enough, they had winter jackets! The first one I found was really nice for $140, $50 for matching ski pants. I thought that was a pretty good price, but decided to look around more! Well I am glad I did, because that was probably one of the most expensive jackets in the store! I found a few racks with already marked down jackets, where you could take an additional 30% off the lowest ticket price. To my delight, there was 3 jackets I liked, and they all happened to be my size! Two of them were the last ones of that style left on the shelf! They all fit great, but I a pretty grey one with a removable liner. It was last ticketed at $59.99, so I got it for just under $45 including tax! That is probably one of the best deals I have ever found. I was planning on getting winter jacket when I got back home, hoping they would be on sale. But I highly doubt that I would have found a Columbia jacket for that price anywhere!

I also bought some size 11 flats. They are usually pretty hard to find, most places stop at 9 or 10. Or if they do have that size they are over $50 and I have to order them online. Well this cute pair only cost me $36 thanks to a coupon book I got for free from my hotel!

So I did only buy two things, I really wanted dress boots for the winter, but the ones I found that I really liked did not come in my size. It sucks cause I could have gotten them for $36 too....

Today is the last day of the conference. I have one or two more short lectures I would like to go to, and then it is off to check into the new hotel. I am still not sure how I will get there.... I will probably just suck it up and take a taxi.

I would also like to see if I can figure out how to get to the airport. I would really like to suprise Eric and meet him there, and it would mean less waiting around for me! :) He should be sitting on the plane right now, so hopefully he won't read this and it will still be a suprise! His plane is due at 7:01, so that gives me exactly 4 hours to get there.
