Collective Haul : eBay, Nordstrom Rack amp Forever 21

4 years ago

I know that I mentioned In an earlier post that I wouldn`t be hauling in a while but I just received a bunch of items I had ordered from eBay weeks ago as well as I forgot to include a couple clothing items I purchased about 2 weeks ago.

***I wanted to apologize for being MIA and not answering some of your emails, I`ve had a crappy/sad couple of days. 9 days one of my chihuahua`s 3 month old puppies became violently sick with an awful deadly canine disease know as parvo or parvovirus. He recovered very quickly thanks to all the medications we purchased for him as well as the 24/7 care my husband and I gave him. He was better in no time and gained back all the weight he had lost. As soon as he was feeling 100% better, the other 2 puppies became sick. Max & Audrey started showing symptoms Monday morning. They were extremely lethargic and had completely lost their appetite. Within a few hours of their initial symptoms they began to vomit. We started IV fluids and medications on them immediately without wasting any time but they didn`t seem to get any better. Before I continue I wanted to add that although Max & Audrey are from the same litter as Romeo, they are much smaller and weigh half of what Romeo weighs. Within two days they went from being 2 playful 3.5 pound puppies to 2 parvo 2.5 pound puppies. They had already lost 1 pound!! One pound may not seem a lot to us because one pound is nothing when you weigh over 100 pounds (assuming most of us weigh over 100 pounds), but for these little guys 1 pound was nearly 1/3 of their weight! Audrey was the sicker one of the two, she would throw up every 2 hours whereas Max would only throw up once a day. We rushed them to the vet and they told us that they both were fighting it really hard and they gave us hope. We also had them prescribe them medications for hardening their stools as well as give them anti vomiting shots. As soon as we brought our puppies home Audrey started having diarrhea (I`m sorry guys I know this is tmi). My heart dropped..... diarrhea is a deadly sign when a puppy has parvo. Vomiting is one thing but what really kills them is diarrhea due to more rapid fluid and electrolyte loss. The combination of dehydration and other parvo symptoms eventually cause heart damage. Within 24 hours she....passed away in my husbands arms. Needless to say, it was a devastating day for both of us. On a lighter note.....Max is back to normal. He really misses his sister (that was his buddy) but he is back to eating (a lot I must add) and drinking and being his playful cute self. Parvo is no joke. We were lucky that 2 out of the 3 parvo puppies survived but usually 50% of parvo puppies die despite whatever you do. We did everything we could...we ended up spending a total of nearly $800 on medications, iv fluids and hospital visits, we had over a week of sleepless nights, we shed lots of tears.... but we would do it all over again. Audrey will be greatly missed (she was my husband`s favorite). ***

Okay let me compose myself before I continue.......

A couple of weeks ago I went to Nordstrom rack to see if maybe I could find something for my mom for Mother`s day. I searched the entire store but didn`t find anything that I thought she would really like. But I didn`t want to leave empty handed because the closest Nordstrom Rack to me is 45 minutes away in my old town so I decided to see if I could find something for myself.  I ended up finding a really cute blush colored boyfriend blazer in their clearance racks for only $19.99. I thought it was such a good deal because it was originally $60 at Nordstrom. I kind of wish I would have found this in a size Small because it seems to fit a little loose on me but I guess that`s why its called a boyfriend blazer. It`s also very very lightweight which is perfect for the warmer seasons.

At Forever 21 &nbsp;I found a really cute scarf while I was looking for a First Communion gift for one of my husband`s nieces (she is only 12 but really likes F21 jewelry so I wanted to add some to her gift). The scarf I got myself is a bright coral pink. I had been wanting a scarf this color for quite a while so I was really happy to find one. It was a steal as well. Less than $5. They also had a bunch of other colors such a turquoise, white, purple etc.&nbsp;</div><div><br /></div><div>Okay now to my eBay stuff.....</div><div><br /></div><div>I ordered a spike cuff bracelet from a US seller. I think she put the incorrect price on her listing because all her other pieces were over $15 and this one was only 99 cents with $2 shipping. I would give you guys her link but this was the only one left. I have seen similar pieces for over $30 so I was really excited about this one. Its really heavy and feels expensive too. It also looks like a dangerous weapon so I guess I will wear this at night when we walk our dogs lol.

I also ordered a few pieces from several Hong Kong sellers. I was really unhappy with one of them and that would be the necklace. In the picture it looked completely different! In the picture the necklace was cream white and a pale gold but the one they sent me was a yellowish color with ugly gold. I was quite disappointed so I contacted them to let them know they needed to change their pictures because they were wayyyy off and they offered to refund me my full money so I thought that was really nice of them because I wasn`t expecting that. It was nearly $7 which wasn`t too bad but I was really hoping for the one they had in the picture because it reminded me of one that Carly Cristman bought at Nordstroms. Oh well...I guess I will still wear it.

Other things I ordered was a wing ring and a deer bracelet. I thought these two were quite unique so I decided to get them. The bracelet is pretty big on me though so I don`t recommend this if you have small wrists like I do but I really like the ring because its adjustable.
