I finally did it. I got my hair cut.

Amanda has been begging me for months to cut my hair in a cute trendy style. Last night I finally decided to do it, and I love it. She cut over 4 inches off !

Now, I just have to pick out a new fun color.

Snatch or Stalk

I love to shop. But when I shop, I hate to pay retail price. I am always on a hunt for the best sales.
Since I love name brand fashions and accessories, it is hard to find the things that I want NOW, on sale. So… when I see something I truly want, I need to decide if I should snatch or stalk.
If it is too expensive and I can wait, I stalk. I have been stalking a Lacoste bag at Macy’s for a few months now. I am just waiting for the day I walk in Macy’s and I see the sign that says “SALE” over the display. I’ll snatch it right then and there.
If I see something that is on sale sand I love it… I just snatch. Like the great pair of Jelly shoes I found at Macy’s the other day (yes, I love Macy’s.)
This system works for me and I rarely have buyer’s remorse.
Here are a few pictures of Maxwell shopping with me at Macy’s. He is becoming quite a helpful little shopper. He will help me look for my size and give me his honest opinion if something looks good.

The Elf

You may be wondering why I have a picture of an elf on the blog.
Well, when I was growing up, my grandma would decorate the whole house with these little elves every Christmas. They were everywhere you looked.
When I saw this little elf at a yard sale last weekend for a quarter, I got so excited! So many childhood memories came flooding back.
I loved seeing these little elves over Christmas, and she would let me play with them before they were put away for another year.
My grandma died when I was 7, but I have so many wonderful memories of her.
I still have the dressing table that she used every day to put her make-up on.
I love the perfume she wore, Youth Dew in the blue bottle, which is my favorite perfume today. I still use the same night cream that she used (from Mary Kay.)
I always remember her saying “never go to bed with your make-up on.” It does not matter how tired I am; I still follow her advice.
She loved shoes, jewelry, purses and clothes as much has I do. There are times that my mom will say to me, “Look at that shirt you have on, it is something my mom would have worn.”
I also have to remember when I look at picture of her all dressed and looking so pretty, that she was a size 14. So, when I get disgusted that I wear a size 14, I need to remember her and how beautiful and curvy she was. That being curvy and full figured runs in the family.
Even though she has been in heaven for a long time, I still miss her.
I am so thankful that she was in my life, even if it was for such a short time. I am glad that I am so much like her in many, many ways.

Here is a picture of her green dressing table I use everyday.

Recent Picture of Sittler

Here is a recent picture of Sittler. He is now almost 9 months old. He is a good puppy.

He and Maple are the best of buddies.

We were so happy that Toby was able to be adopted by an older couple, and he is going to be the only pet.

He will be so much better in that environment.
