Oh no...

I went a little crazy today :) 

Shop crazy.  What started out as a trip to Sephora to pick up some face wash turned into an accidental shopping day. As we all know Sephoras are often located in magical areas called malls. All malls are very dangerous places for me to be sans hubby or a friend to keep me in retail check. I can't help it. Things start jumping off of racks and shelves begging me to take them home. "Over here, you need me in your closet!" "No me, I was made for you!" So dangerous.

I entered the mall wearing blinders and a will of something more like tin then iron. I did pretty well at first. I made my purchase in 5 minutes and left the makeup dreamland without even so much as a batted eyelash towards the rainbow colored wonders. "I did it, boom." Eye of the Tiger is playing in my head. No big deal, let's go home. To get back to my car I have to walk through a certain store that gives out those notorious yellow plastic bags. Yeah, you know what happened next.

Cha-Ching, impulses won. I left with some goodies in a yellow sac. Damn. Oh well. At least I got a purchase high. Yeah, I feel awesome! On the way home I made a few more stops here, a few there, TJ Maxx, Lowe's (It's one of my crafting happy places) and Jo-Ann's fabric store. I always have to stop in just in case a fabric I have been lusting for is on sale. And what do you know, a swiss dot that I have had my eye on for about three months is finally on sale. Yay! New summer skirt, get ready to be made. I love fabric stores. I feel so inspired to start new projects or finish the ones I haven't gotten around to yet. Which reminded me of a certain daunting project I have been avoiding for a few months. The Master Bedroom Headboard. I was so full of optimism and cheer from my day of shopping that I found a massive roll of batting on sale and thought why the hell not; Let's give the boudoir an update. So now I have two projects to start and complete before hubby comes home from deployment. I may have gone a little over the top today with my purchases, but now I have lots and lots to keep me occupied these last few weeks of deployment. Crafting Sammy is coming out. Let the games begin!
