Well there is one thing I should probably not be left in charge of and that is the Christmas shopping.
Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE to shop!
I love to give presents, thoughtful gifts.. putting my whole heart into it, I mean, it's what I do for a living.
and let's face it, I am the organized one in that department.
but Christmas shopping is a whole different ball game. It involves going to a wide variety of stores that I wouldn't necessarily frequent....
and that becomes problematic.
I end up buying more things for MYSELF than others!
do you find yourselves doing this?
oh my, it's bad!
I mean I RARELY shop!! seriously.
(mostly because Ann has me locked down in the basement strapped to my sewing machine making pillows all of the time. ha ha! just kidding Ann.)
So this week since I've started the process of buying gifts, (for others) I've come home with a few for myself.....
1.) couple of new shirts,
2.) some earrings,
3.) new lotion,
4.) some more earrings......
5.) a dress (or two)
you get the picture.......
I ended up going into a little vintage shop in town because
I had to pick up something on somebody's list
(don't read this mom) ;)
...... found myself coming home with these
right? well how about a nice, perfectly rusted old toy truck?
like it had actually traveled along old back roads
and forgotten highways........
I just had to have it~
and what about this?
the fact that this one was old AND lit from within, well....it had me at Hello.
these by FAR my most exciting scores (for myself) this week.
now the more I thought about it, and my complete lack of self-control, I started thinking ........
WAIT!!! I DESERVE these things right?
I mean, I've worked HARD this season,
I should be rewarded with a treat right?
SO if you find yourself in a similar situation like myself,
go easy on yourself.....
you probably have worked hard too!
and you deserve that little extra something
for yourself, so go ahead!
your secrets safe with me! :)
