Yippee Skippee!! Yesterday I went shopping at my favorite store: The Yorktowne Shoppe. It's this wonderful little store in my neighborhood that is stocked full of all things country. I wish she had a website so I could link it and you could see for yourself. After grocery shopping I realized that I had done pretty well in terms of budget. So, I took the extra $60 I had left and spent $30 of it. My husband thinks I spent $20. Well, actually $10 of that was my money so really I only did spend $20. How's that for justification?
Anyway - I bought little white, barn star ornaments to hang on my little tree in my living room. Because I can't make a bow to save my soul, she was nice enough to make me one. Pretty barn red gingham ribbon. With the lights on the tree and the new ornaments I am just tickled pink. The tree was originally a gift from my girlfriend. But it was decorated in a Steeler theme. Now, while I am a HUGE Steeler fan (GO BLACK AND GOLD!!) it just didn't match my interior obviously. And putting it on my porch posed too much of a risk of having it stolen, which wouldn't have matched either. So, it's now a pretty focal point in my living room.
And on my way out the door I found the cutest star-shaped wreath. And jutting out from every inch are red berries. I know that my description can't do it justice. But take it from me - it's too stinking cute. I even managed to get my husband to hang it already. I can't reach. Poor guy. He has to hang everything being married to a 5'1" wife. He's almost 6'. You do the math.
So yesterday was success! The grocery shopping got done. The laundry got done. Dinner was a hit! Stuffed peppers and mashed potatoes, yummy! And for my reward, I found a few more things for my home which I adore. Can't get any better than that.
Today I have to clean the bathrooms, sigh....
