Curiosity killed the cat and fantabulous mail day..

 

So, we have been searching for the Nintendo Wii since last Christmas....
Make a long story short, we finally found it!!!  Baptiste called Gamestop and she said, we have only 10 and we cannot hold them.  We were all the way in Orland Park, and we had to go all the way back to Country Club Hills, its not really far...but Wii's have been known to sell out within the first 30 minutes...

Baptiste floored it all the way there and I hopped out of the car as it was rolling and ran in to get the Wii....there were only 2 left!!!  I felt so triumphant....LOL 

Here is a funny pic of Baptiste playing bowling, I so whooped his butt!!!


Here is where the curiosity comes in... We had previously checked the Orland Park Best Buy to see if they had any Wii's,  and it's right next to Archivers, I decided to look in and see what they had.  I had promised myself to only spend the money I made for doing a survery and that was $100.  Why can't I ever stick to plan... Came home with all of this stuff, which, in my mind was 100 dollars worth of product, boy was I way off...like add another 157 dollars more off....LOL  I love these journaling cards, they are so cute...they are by Teresa Collins


I just had to get that opaque white ink pad, and all those embellishments....that is where it got expensive...because I got 5 sets of acrylic stamps at 14.99 a pop...

fell in love with these acrylic date stamps by 7 gypsies...also got another set called journey. I am always on the prowl for new white gel pens and came across something called souffle...haven't tried them yet, but will let you know if they are good....lol

 I love the whole noteworthy line and thought I had bought everything in the line until I saw those cute embellies...
The notepads are from Making Memories too, but they are the new line for baby girls and boys

I had to get all of the new Making Memories papers, and also the new Fancy Pants line, love the new transparencies....more embellies

  When i got home the doorbell rang and had two very special delieveries for me from fed ex....One my April Kotm from Lisa Bearnson....




AAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNND!

 AND THIS BOX!!!!



YOU GUESSED IT, MY BRAND NEW IMAC BABY!!!!!!!
