I'm failing miserably!

Okay, so a few days ago, I posted that I was challenging myself to a spending freeze. Can you say.....COMPLETE FAILURE! I must start over! Of course, that won't be to hard, as I have yet to complete anything. I have however been shopping. I just can't stop buying all the pretty scrap stuff! I had to go to Target, for some supplies for J, so what must I go look for? Yep, the Crazy Life line by Heidi Swapp. I didn't go to hog wild over this stuff. I got a frame kit, a couple of the plastic letter sets and some chipboard letters. The tapes were really cute, but Thursday is now spelled Thrusday. I also picked up some Making Memories letter stickers to match a paper set I already have. Then today, I placed an order for some of the new Daisy D's French Market papers and some Fontwerks stuff from Scrapgal. So......I'm starting over again. NO MORE BUYING until I do 10 projects!

Can I use the fact that I'm giving up soda as an excuse for losing my mind and shopping?

I don't know what has gotten into me lately, but I just have this huge desire to go shop wild! I've been craving a trip to Ikea , I want some more new shoes, I want some more new clothes, I want some cute new lacey things, and I wanna go make-up shopping too! I must fight this urge to shop!! I'm hoping to go and get a few new things before we head off to Vegas -if we end up going. Hopefully tomorrow, I will be able to print boldly across the top of my blog that I am in fact headed for SIN CITY! Not much sinning will be going on with a 9 month old in tow though.

I can't believe my little J is 9 months old today!!! Where is all the time going? I look at him in his crib and just can't believe how big he is getting!

Ooh! I'll go make-up shopping with you. (Oh, wait...that's probably not what you needed to hear!) No, I won't go shopping with you. :-)

LOL...You are supposed to be my inspiration to not shop!! Luckily my Target doesn't have the Heidi Swapp stuff, but dammit my J's does!! We'll let you have a "do over" !

I hear you on the shopping thing. I've found so many good deals lately that I just want to spend, spend and then spend more. But I try to equate everything to gas prices! That usually halts my spending!

I hope you go to Sin City...I'm so jealous! I've always wanted to go to Sin City and have Elvis conduct my wedding ceremony!

STOP IT!!!!!!!!!! Just STOP Spending $$$!!!!

See what happens when we don't talk for a week (or two)...tsk tsk tsk, what has happened to my friend, she's lost her mind!

Don't worry, don't beat yourself up, just STOP IT!!! :)

Love ya!
