Yep. I just made an either/or wish list. I'm trying to be more practical... Trying.
I was in the mood to look at something pretty yesterday & what better place to start than Modcloth? Mistake number one had been made. Almost immediately, I discovered that one of my long-time favorites, the Minneapolis Bag was back in stock.
Then I laid eyes upon the Garden Party Heel & audibly gasped. Polka dots, scallops, & a bow...three of my favorites on one chunky heel. But the $182.99 price tag made me cringe so I moved on to mistake number two.
I casually typed "cat" in the search bar. There are 129 search results for cat on Modcloth. Did I mention mistake number two was a big one? That's when I discovered that the Meow's the Time Heel is now available in three colors; one of which is nearly the same shade as the Minne Bag. Must be fate, right?
Since the combined cost of the bag & kitty heels is almost $60 less than the party heels alone, I felt a lot better about dropping $125. I could get behind that...but I still like to let pricey things sit in my shopping cart over night so I'm absolutely sure before I hit checkout.
Now here comes the real bummer & the reason this is still a wish list. Less than 24 hours later, they have sold out of my size in the heels. Boo. Also, I got charged an unexpected $150 at the dentist this morning. Ruh-oh.
Guess it wasn't fate after all.
I've decided Mother Nature is having a midlife crisis. That last photo was taken at 8 o'clock this morning & it has not stopped snowing since. My Facebook timeline looks like this & the world is white again...in May. I don't particularly mind the snow but I am oh so sad for my flowers. If anyone has tips on bringing them back, I'd love to hear them!

I'm sure many of you were as excited as I was for the premiere of season 6 of Mad Men (not to mention thrilled that it was two hours long!). Well, I about fell out of my chair laughing when I stumbled across this site.
I just love a good Mean Girls joke. I know there are plenty more out there. Which are your favorites?
Just dropping in to wish you all the happiest of Easters. We had a great one & hope you have, too!
The Easter Bunny brought me jumbo paper clips, colorful bobbi pins, & a mini bottle of wine. The other Easter Bunny made me a delicious homemade dinner. I, of course, couldn't be happier.
How did you spend your day?
I'm sure by now most of you have heard that Google Reader will be no more come July. I've been using it for a long, long time so I was pretty bummed when I first heard but I've been trying some other readers & Bloglovin' seems to be my favorite alternative so far. Which blog readers do you use?
