WARNING: blog overload and a gripe

Why o why do I feel the need to explain myself, but I guess I have to! You see, we have some people who read my blog, that like to post anonymous or send emails accusing me of being a liar or materialistic! First off, I am not a liar, and I don't have to take pictures to support every statement I make on my blog. If I say, I am going shopping or I went shopping, please believe I did. I don't have to LIE! Now if you call me a procrastinator, then you would be on the mark. I hate loading pics to blogger, because it's a headache, and being that I still have not got the camera I wanted, I am still taking pics from a camera phone. I know some of you are like "What is she talking about ?". Well lets refer back to this post.

If you are a regular blog reader, then you know I love to shop! I was on the hunt for that lazy susan and some white sharpies, and came home with the following:
Found this cute storage tote from Target! Has a chalk board on the front!

Found these cute baskets at Target for dirt cheap, and I spray painted them red!

Couldn 't find that green lazy susan, but saw this stainless still 2 tiered rack and sprayed it red, didn't take a picture of the second coat, but for all you NON-BELIEVERS, i can take a picture tonight, can't promise when I will post it though!

Picked up the cute new soft spoken stuff from Mike's

along with this new cutesy stuff by Amanda Blu....Love it

Wanted some watercolors so I picked that up too!

thought these soft spoken stickers were cute, so I couldn't resist them either

while at Target, I cruised through my favorite aisle, the home office section, Love the birdie post its so I bought those

couldn't choose between the turqoise or green real simple post its, so you guessed it I bought them both

this was the whole purpose of my shopping spree, finding white pens, because I loved that ARticle by Jennifer McGuire, and hunted down that white sharpie...found it at Office Max

saw these paint pens, and 'GREAT FOR SCRAPBOOKS", caught my eye so I bought those too!

Forgot to mention I went down the scrapbook aisle while in Target, and was totally in shock, to find these Awesome products on CLEARANCE, by Autumn Leaves!

Thought I should by the papers to match!

What woman can't resist the dollar spot, found these cute pails, thought they were cute, but there were only two left, bummer!

saw these cute ribbons in the dollar spot at Target

Last but not least, these were also in the dollar spot, and I knew fully well, they were not a dollar, but since I worked in retail before, if you have more than one, in the wrong area, you have to give it to me for that price, so you know I love post it's so I had to get it!

So there you have it! This is documentation and proof of what I say! By the way, if I am going to lie, why would I lie about something so small as going scrapbook shopping. It's not like it's something that is intangible. Now if I say, I live in Palm Beach, with a 3 Bentley's and a maid, then one SHOULD suspect I was not telling the truth...LOL

By the way, I went shopping on Yesterday, and Bought myself a new Dolce and Gabbana purse, and that was a plunge! Guess I will have to take a picture and post a receipt! LOL

Sorry, if this seems childish, but it get's on my nerves when people make assumptions about me, but don't know the first thing about me.

I would have to assume they are jealous! I am by no means rich, but I live a very comfortable life. My husband was BLESSED with a very good job, so that I can afford to stay home with a sick child and still have some of the finer things in life. But know, that I don't feel it necessary to take a picture of every single thing I have to proove anything. Not long ago, I was accused of BRAGGING TO MUCH! Now I am lying...... You people need to make up your mind! Which is it!

Now that I am off my soapbox! LOL

I had a great weekend, Friday, was a day of cleaning and changing things around in the house. I get bored easily....

Yesterday, dh and I went to see a play called "Relationship Games". It was soooo good. And guess who was in the play! Tiffany Pollard otherwise known as Miss New York, she actually did a good job It was sooooo good!

Afterward, we went to our friend Tamika's house for her birthday, and why o why, did I allow her to coerce me into taking 7 jello shots.....I was feeling no pain when I left!

But I am paying for it this morning.....LOL

Today, I am going to stay in bed and watch television. My mom picked up the kids and took them to see 10,000 bc. and take them to Breakfast! She ditched church....LOL

They will back later this afternoon, so I am taking advantage and getting my relax on.....

Until next time...

Hi, Dana - trying to catch up as I took a 10-day hiatus myself. Glad you are on the other side of that funk now, but I would also totally understand if you were still there, too. It really is the toughest job known to (hu)man. winkwink I'm struggling with a little funk myself and on the way to finding a nice grassy knoll to hang out on until it subsides, LOL.
