What a week in the blogging world! So much has been going on lately and everyone seems to really be on top of their blogging, myself included! Let's keep this up ladies; it's great to see what everyone is up to and what fun things people are finding, buying, giving away and participating in. Love it!
So yesterday was quiet an adventure. I made not one, not two, but THREE trips to HomeGoods! Not only is this one of the greatest home stores ever but I felt the need to go multiple times in one day. Ok, I didn't really WANT TO go that many times. Yesterday I just had to get out of the office for a bit so during my lunch break I headed to the Marshall's HomeGoods in River Oaks. I found two great lamps for the living room and a huge framed bulletin board for the office. Great finds, I thought they would be perfect.
The Lamp "Round 1"
Skip to after work. Chris and I went to Home Depot, spent a fortune (not hard to do there) and then proceeded to my car for his approval on my purchases. Loves the lamps, not the bulletin board. Ok its 7:30 at this point. So I go back to HomeGoods around the corner in Katy and return the bulletin board :(. I also took a look at the lamp section one more time to make sure I didn't miss anything (they were putting new lamps out at all the stores yesterday). There just so happened to be two lamps that caught my eye. I decided to just go with what I already had since Chris had already seen them and headed home. No good. Not only were they not tall enough for the room but it made the room look so dark, not the point of having a lamp. I started to make dinner and just let it settle in and think about it. Nope, if you now me then you know I don't just settle. Things have to be near perfect or it will just bug me. Yep, I must be insane, my husband just laughed at me when I told him that it just won't do and I was going back. And you know that if you see something that you really like you have to go back for it or it might be gone the next day. So I finished making Chris' dinner, skipped mine for the time being and headed back to Homegoods at 9pm for the other two lamps. I am now happy with my new lamps and all is well in the Lenz household, lol. Pictures to come later.
I am so glad that it is finally Friday. Lots to do this weekend and I am actually looking forward to just a weekend of doing stuff around the house. I hope that everyone has a wonderful and blessed one! xoxo
