Oh, I’ve been loving lately a lot of things. They feel a bit materialistic but it is what it is. Perhaps sharing some of them with you will give you some insight into me. Or just confirm what you’ve always thought — I’m slightly crazy with a bit of ADD. I won’t deny it. If there’s one thing you know about me by now, it’s that I’ll admit my shortcomings.
Lately I’m loving my new camera. You may recall that I was saving up for a free camera. Free is my favorite price. However, after all the calculations it was determined by my accountant husband that it would take over a year to get enough points for that. I can’t wait that long (impatience — a shortcoming).
I found a camera that I thought would fit my needs on sale (my second favorite price) at Walmart. I’m not ready for a DSLR because I want to improve my basic photography skills first so I got this Fuji FinPix S4830 at Walmart. I actually did not get the bundle that I linked to but got the camera a little cheaper because I took the display model. Now I have one of the Epiphanie Camera Bag’s that Michelle told us all about on my wish list. It will need to be pink. And I’m sure it will be awesome.
My first issue of Oxygen came in the mail today! Every day I’d call my husband and ask if it came in yet. Finally it shows up! I’m not allowing myself to read it until I catch up on some blogging. Torture! Oh, and yes, it was a free subscription. It’s pretty awesome that Nicole Wilkins is on the cover.
I received my winnings from 5 by the 5th. Honestly, I thought it was a “box of Kind bars.” You know, a box. I buy them at Walmart and they come four to a box. I was excited because they are Kind bars and it would save me five bucks but it was more like an “eh” level of excitement. Yesterday my “box” of Kind bars came in. Not only was it six boxes but they are 12 packs of the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate. My favorite! That’s over a $100 worth of Kind bars. I want to spread them all over my bed and roll on them like money. In the wrapper, of course.
I may not have been clear with you in the past about my makeup and beauty product fetish. It’s not as bad as it used to be, I’m now down to a train case (pink of course), two bathroom drawers, and half of bathroom cabinet filled with these items. This weekend I went to Ulta which recently opened one town over. I told Jason I wasn’t going to buy anything and that I’d be super good but when I walked in they had a big display stating that if I spent $20 in Ulta products, I’d get $88 worth of beauty products free (pictured above). Yes, please.
I’ve always decorated my house with the color green. I love the sense of having the outdoors in. However, I’ve not been on the blue and green team and have even said that I’d absolutely never do that. Then the March issue of Better Homes & Gardens came in the mail and I fell in love with this decorating style (which is very close to my own) and color scheme. I’m seeing green and blue in my future.
