I'm making great strides in my addiction...

to shopping that is...

I had or still have a 20% off coupon for $100 or more at the BR Outlet store that expires on 11/5. I also have $10 off from my BR Luxe rewards. But I didn't go. I tried to tell myself that I was going to begin Xmas shopping, but then I came to the hard realization that BR, JCrew, Brooks Brothers, and Ralph, have nothing there for anyone but me... Granted I could buy the Mr. some clothes but that's not what he wants for Xmas...

I also stopped myself from going to Target to start buying Xmas decorations.

But, its still calling my name.... I'm choosing to decorate the house this year with silver instead of gold, so I need to buy new stuff. For the past couple of years I've been doing golds, burgundy, greens, purples, and dark blues. I'm changing it up and I need new stuff. I explained to the Mr. that our Xmas color scheme is going to be changing... He wasn't aware that we had a color scheme... I know... I can't believe he didn't realize it either. Shocking..

I've also informed him that when we move to NC we're buying a bigger tree. I prefer fake trees, sorry but that's just me and how I was raised. The tree we have right now, is the 1st tree I had out of college. My parents came to visit me in Indy and bought me a 5ft tree from Target. Its a great lil tree and I'll keep it and use it elsewhere but its not big enough for what I imagine to have in "our house".

I'm new to your blog but am loving it!!!!

I'm right there with you on having to control the urge to by Christmas decorations. My daughter and I were at Target yesterday for bithday gift shopping and had to browse through the Christmas stuff.

And I want a new tree too!!! We have a small living room and for 4 years now we've had a 3.5 foot tree on a table because you couldn't see the TV with a larger one. Now we don't watch TV in there so it's time for a new tree. I would love a retro silver aluminum tree though.
