While many of you are resolving that you will be spending less money for this new year, I have a resolution of a different kind. I have made myself a promise that I will actually spend my Christmas money by the end of January. You see... I tend to hoard it for a "special" purchase which never seems to come to fruition. All year I sit and stew on it. And then, there I am around Halloween trying to figure out what I should buy. Ridiculous, right?
Not this year... no, I am going to buy myself a few things that I love and will make me smile... all before Valentine's Day. And, I'm doing a very good job of it to be honest. So, here's a list of what I've bought so far (and, yes, I did actually have some money left over from last year... shame on me).
My first purchase...
Then I found this gorgeous rug at Pottery Barn and HAD to have it. I needed a little punch of color in the living room... Even better? It was on SALE!
No, this is not my living room. This is what I'd like to imagine my living room to look like. White couches? Are you crazy? Remember I have 2 kids and 2 dogs, but a girl can dream.
My last purchase? A new pair of "go out with your husband on a date" Sevens. And, I didn't feel the least bit guilty for paying full price (okay, maybe a little).What about you? What have you spent your Christmas money on so far?
