I debate whether I should even be doing this because my gadonka-donk butt and thunder thighs would be better served if I spent this time at the YMCA. But, for all my sistas who have cheered me up and provided me with a few laughs, I hope to return the favor by sharing a few of my favorite things that make me smile. May we continue to be inspired to serve our Lord, honor our country, and strive to be good children, spouses, mothers, employees and friends.
Yesterday was one of those days when I could just feel the pullof my credit card magnet trying to attract me to all kinds of stuff! I had a little over an hour to spend on another shopportunity, so I ran into Target to pick up a gift card for my nephew. I hadn't been in there in a while (2-3 weeks), and had seen a blog with some nice autumn orange pillows from there, so I thought I'd take a look to see if they had some in silk. Well, wouldn't you know....I HAD TO WALK down by the dish aisle....Now, I haven't picked out blue dishes since the 1980s...you see my china (both formal & everyday) was blue & pink floral....Please ladies, if you have daughters or family members, tell them to pick a neutral pattern when they register...not a floral!!! Nobody told that to my friends or I at the time...and now, I've got myself a problem!
Sorry for the tangent....
So, I'm a confessed dish junkie!!! Lord, please help me to resist!!! Target had the most lovely blue & white dishes with these blue mother-of-pearl & silvery chargers....though pricey, they are killer!!! See....
They also had a cool red & white pattern for the holidays. Dee-lish!!!
And they could even be mixed for July 4th!!!
And for my beachy side, they had these awesome aqua plates for not much dinero...a good thing. These are called Pistachio, but if I've picked the right ones, they looked sea glass aqua in the store. And I'm likin' these too....
Help! Can you hear a sista crying for an intervention???
Now mind you, I have already been eyeing these over at Pottery Barn, but I do hate to pay full price, so I'm trying to be patient....which I'msooooo not!!! But, they're so cool for Halloween!
So Lord, please help me fight the pullcuz I have to stop STIMALATIN!!! And it's OH SO HARD for Tardevil to be good!!! :O( And I'm running out of storage room....Maybe if I cook more, and eat out less, it will justify some of them??? Hmmmmm.........Now, don't get me started on what was at Pier 1!!!
