Have Money, Will Shop

Monday, January 12, 2009

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! Moorish Tile Rug 2.5 x 9, Clementine Orange

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?
