Decorating Complete

Saturday, March 1, 2008
Today was one of those days when I was extremely productive. I was up at 8:30 and out the door, heading to a meeting then stopped into Marshall's to see what great shoe deals I could find. I found this awesome pair of brown patent leather T-strap sandals for only $30 -- can't pass that up.

As I was browsing through the home section, I found three frames I instantly loved, a gold table runner, a brown leather magazine holder, and a sparkly brown tea light holder to go on the dining room table, too. I was so pumped. As I've wrote about here, the B.F. and I don't exactly agree on decorating. After our last conversation about decorating, he pretty much threw it into my hands to make the decisions. Great -- more power to me. So, I swiped my debit card proudly, knowing that I made the final decisions and he going to have to love everything I purchased.

Then, I stumbled over into Linen's N Things and low and behold -- they are having the mother of all sales. I'm not sure how long it lasts, but if you buy one painting or mirror, you get the second 50% off -- you can't beat that. We ended up saving $60 on these pictures (we both agreed on them a month ago).

Needless to say I'm pumped. The living and dining room are now complete. I'm so proud. I even stuck to a budget -- who knew. My next project is to tackle the master bedroom. That's going to need to be done in several steps -- I need a whole new set of furniture and a king bed.

well that sounds like quite the day of shopping.

i like that you bought stuff for your house but obviously had to get the shoes for yourself.

i do the same thing.

Actually, I forgot to say I was financially responsible and put the shoes back. If I go back today and they are there, then I will pick them up.
