I am a big believer in dark nail polish. Not because I'm trying to be trendy, but because I constantly have my hands in something dirty and by wearing dark nail polish it's much easier to disguise dirty finger nails. My favorite color right now is You Don't Know Jacques by OPI.
Tan Cords on sale for $19.99
Perfect Cognac Flats for $33.00 and some change (I've been looking for Cognac flats for months!)
Beautiful Mustard Yellow Boyfriend Sweater for $16.99
Land's End Canvas is a cheaper alternative to my J.Crew and Gap obsession. The Winter Sale is still going on and there's tons of cute things left....Grab them up while you can!
On a side note, one of my New Year's resolutions is to stick to my shopping budget of $250.00. This budget includes my clothing, makeup, hair, nails, and also "home accessories" like towels, new throw pillows, etc. Also included are Starbucks AND if I go out to eat by myself or with friends. Not including when we go out to eat as a family. Phew. It's a lot, but I HAVE to do it. Will you help me stick to this budget?
We're going out for dinner tonight, and will probably swing by the First Friday Art Show's downtown. If you didn't know, every first Friday of the month Downtown Cape Girardeau opens all the galleries a little later for your viewing pleasure. Also the antique shops will be open later than usual -- perfect time for me to look for additions to my newest collection : Vintage Maps and Globes. I hope JD likes maps as much as I do because that's what I'm decorating his room in, and also that's the theme for his birthday party!
I just finished a new book called Boundaries by Cloud and Townsend.
Lord, help me to slow down a bit this weekend. Help me to delight in my activities, and in the things I say Yes to. Help me not to feel guilty if I tell someone No. Thank you Father for being my best friend. Love you.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
