The waiting game... over!

After this wonderful news was received in the mail, I went on with my list of errands to run around town, this being my day off and thus my day to get some things done. But after the work was done... I SPLURGED in celebration.

{Did I mention I finally got to watch the movie Shopaholic the other night? It has really encouraged a certain habit.}

I do have to say that when I say "splurge", I mean that I actually bought something, something that was on sale and a grrrrrrrrrrreat deal.

So splurge = purchase in my book. Not a big price tag.

Glad we've got that straightened out.

I love my new little pretties from TJ Maxx you see above. The candle holder is shown with a few candles I had around to test the look out... and with one spot candle-less. I also have BIG plans for the lantern.... it doesn't show in the photo, but it's huge! I could do different scenes for every season inside. FUN, fun.

In other news...

Wanna see what
a year old wedding cake looks like?

Of course we had to drink our milk out of our engraved champagne flutes we used at the wedding =)

Coming tomorrow....

My biggest splurge of the day - a new coffee table!!!!

"New" to me, but 50 years old to someone else. It's vintage and absolutely perfect for my family room.

I don't know if I'm more excited about the table or my passing score...?
