Serious Retail Therapy

First off, before I bought anything for myself, I got the kids a few outfits. They grow soooo fast is scary. Gabby will be 5 in June and Fay will be 10 next January. My how time has flown by. Secondly I am still upset about not getting the job :( but I will get over it soon. Thirdly I do sympathize with the other workers that were also passed over, because they may also be hurting. Fourthly I still have a job which is a blessing in itself.

I decided to take a day off to sulk and shop. Tomorrow I am getting my hair done so that may lift my spirits. Since I have been exercising the sweat has my hair looking crazy. I did not know this would happen but I am on the way to a healthier me. I had a relapse and got a Whopper Jr meal from Burger King. I am sure I will have to work my butt off later today. I found myself doing leg lifts while shopping and in the checkout line. I'm sure ppl thought I was crazy! Can you imagine how crazy it is to walk and squeeze your butt muscles together LOL, I know too much information but @least you guys know that I am human!

So here's the lot of what I picked up today:

I've got some Echo Park, Pebbles, Basic Grey Mint Julep in here. I'll always love pink but I have started leaning towards blues, aquas, turquoise and yellows. So cute right?

The American Crafts Items on the left were from Target along with the clipboard. The butterflies, doilies and brads are from Michaels. I love magazines so the Embellish book is right up my ally. The ribbon is American Crafts from TJ Maxx. I got the Spellbinders from Joann's, but I may take the Lattice template back, not really feeling it now! The punches are from Michaels, by the way, check them out they have a new line of EK Success Punches!

My Pretties
I used this weeks Sunday Sketch by Studio Calico. The heart paper is DCWV, the butterfly sticker is CP On Trend. The dot paper and banner is Simple Stories Vintage Bliss. The buttons are Basic Grey Nook and Pantry
