Murphy's Law and some Accessories!
Hi there! Happy Sunday to you!
Ya know when you buy something and you think.... maybe I should wait... just a little longer? Then you think well... fine lets just do it. We did that a couple of weeks ago. We decided to bite the bullet and buy the granite counter tops we have always wanted. Things are looking great, all moving along smoothly. I made the first 1/2 payment 3 days ago, things are still fine... My sister is a manager for GAP and twice a year they have friends and family weekends where we get 30% off. I LOVE shopping on these weekends cause I can go to GAP, Banana Republic and OLD NAVY. So I spent a chunk of change at this fantastic event. Then BAM! Murphy said.. not so fast my friend you are having way too much fun. I get home to hubby telling me the lawn mower has bit the dust after he made a couple of trips to ACE Hardware then Lowes to see if he could fix it himself. If only he had called me when I was out shopping I would have stopped at like $100.00 or so sooner. THEN we get home from church and I am making dinner and the dang over the stove microwave decides it is leaving with the lawn mower. Really?.... two fairly high priced items in one day? I still have the other half of the counter tops to pay! HA what can you do?? I should have known right? Things were going just a wee bit too smooth. Seriously though, I CANNOT complain. Things could certainly be much worse. All of that being said. I did not get any crafty time in this weekend. NONE. I hope to get a little bit this coming week because we plan on starting the dreaded living room painting next weekend.
I have recently gotten to make these silk flowers I found here and OH! they are so fun to make! Grace and I just ran with it and made headbands, hair barrettes and broaches!! FUN, FUN!!
Well, thanks for listening to my rant. Hope you have a fantastic week and thanks for taking the time to stop by!!
