Shopping Spree

I seem to have gone on a bit of a shopping frenzy lately. Rob (jokingly) keeps asking me if I'm going through some sort of depression because of everything I've been buying or talking about wanting to buy. I'm normally a bit of a tightwad, so for me to buy this many things for myself in one week is very rare. Here are my latest purchases.....


Beautiful linen flower pin from Emersonmade





Skincare Brush

Clarisonic skincare brush. I've been wanting one of these for months now and even told Rob to buy it for me for Christmas. But Sephora was having their annual Friends and Family discount with 20% off in addition to free shipping and I just couldn't pass it up. My skin has been terrible for the past couple years and has only worsened with this pregnancy. 




Some new maternity clothes.....sorry the Loft's website will not allow me to copy the pictures so you'll have to click on the links.




I found a promotional code online for 25% off your entire purchase plus they were giving free shipping on orders over $100.


But the largest purchase of all was not my idea. We have decided to get satellite tv service back after living off our antenna for the past 5 months. I would be lying if I said I wasn't tickled about this. There are so many shows I've been wanting to see, especially on TLC. We are supposed to have it installed on Friday. Upon deciding that we were going to get "cable" back in our house I gently suggested to Rob that we purchase another small TV for our bedroom (we gave our last one to Goodwill a couple years ago, because it did nothing but collect dust - we had acquired it when a bank I used to work for closed down and my manager told me I could take it from the breakroom). Anyway, the keyword in that last sentence was small. Instead, after some squabbling from me and a couple of trips to Walmart to return other TVs, my husband brought home this....
A 32" TV that is as big as the mirror we currently have hanging above the dresser. Having this TV sit in front of that mirror now looks ridiculous. More than likely this eyesore will be hanging in it's place by the end of the week. Our bedroom is way too small for this type of display and I personally think it will be tacky, but I digress. I'm tired of bickering over it. I'll let the man have his ugly TV. He did, however, suggest that I buy myself the pair of Anthropologie boots that I've been coveting for the past few weeks to make up for it......


Bowtied-Beauty Boots

(aren't they adorable?)

but I just can't bring myself to spend $250 on a pair of shoes I'm scared won't fit my feet after this child is born (my feet seem to have mysteriously grown a 1/2 inch since my last pregnancy and I'm worried it may happen again!)
