Shopping on the Fly

Oh give me a break... okay!?
I couldn't stop THINKING about the pillow, after my green post!
And while I might have been picking up another 10 cans of flat, white, .96 cent spray paint... I MAY or may not have wandered over to the bath/pillow section of Walmart... to only get stopped in my tracks, by this
OH SO CUTE, pb looking but half the price, masterpiece!
Can you blame me?
She belongs here.
:)
It would have been a crime against all things green and beautiful,
if I'd not blown a little grocery money and bought it!
OH... you just STOP judging me right NOW... like you've never done that!
PLUS... our Walmart is a DIVE... and I was SO, BEYOND thrilled to see a CUTE piece of home decor in OUR ghetto Wally World, so... I just HAD to snag it.

There... Justified. :)





WHAT the......!?!?!?!


How the heck did THAT get here!?!?!

  5. I have been tempted by these exact same pillows at our local wally's.
    I have yet to buy them but you can bet they are on the list right under cereal.

  7. Ha too funny! I think you are justified in spending some of your grocery dollars. Fab pillow and love the bath mat. I have to say I love the rose ruffled pillow too, where is that from?

  10. Hahahahahahaha! It appears that your green bedroom pillow has a friend in the bathroom! However you got it, it sure looks good!

    Many Blessings,

  12. Very cute pillow and rug. I am sure they hopped into your cart of their own accord. I really like my Walmarts, I have 3 within 8 miles that I frequent. I go to 3 because they don't all carry the same things, it drives me batty.

  14. Food is SO overrated! Plus, once you eat it, it's gone. Not so with the pillow! ;)

  25. Okay thank you so much for the laugh this post had me really laughing out loud! :-) It is also comforting to know someone else thinks the same way about Wally World!!! :-) Oh and when confronting the $ VS shopping dilemma . .I just think of it as a weight loss plan . . I mean after-all less $ for food means less food in your tummy!!! ;-)

  26. I have to say I am really loving your posts...you have such a great sense of timing and it shines through your posts...love the humor for sure...Our Walmart is pathetic and only 2 yrs old and I did see that pillow and it would look cute on my soft teal sofa I might get it as well...(who needs milk and eggs right?) Well...maybe I will skip the donuts this week instead...thanks for the giggles...I love your blog and enjoy your notes so much!!!

  27. I don't know you. And I'm not even sure how I found your blog. But...I'm sure glad I did! You are SO stinking funny! You truly make me laugh OUT LOUD!!! I just love reading your blog because, not only do you have the best ideas and cutest home I've EVER SEEN, but you write so well and you make it seem like you're right there talking to all us bloggers. You are so fun! I'm sure we were probably friends in another life:) Plus, it looks like you live in Daybreak, South Jordan. I grew up right down the hill from there. My parents still live in the home I grew up in, but now they have a GORGEOUS view of the Oquirrh Mountain temple out their front window. Anyway, I'm getting SO off subject. Thank you for being my FAVORITE blog to look at! I have 3 little girls the same ages as yours and one day, my house just might look like yours(fingers crossed)! Keep up the fun posts. ~Klorissa

  31. Love it!!!! You are such a blast to read AND you have the best ideas!!!! I have recommended your blog to so many of my mommy friends who feel "stuck" and that they can't do anything right now.
    You are an inspiration! Plus, you make me laugh!!!!

  34. I want to re-do our bedroom and I'm loving the quilt on your bed. Where did you get it?! Thanks!! And thank you for the laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ok, first of all...HILARIOUS post!! the "how did that get there?" at the end threw me for a LOOP! it TOTALLY sounded like something i would say to my boyfriend after shopping home decor!!! lol

    second, i know what you mean about that pillow! i bought a bed-in-a-bag set from wally world that was green & brown & COVETED that pillow to go on my bed, but was FORBIDDEN to buy it! [we already had a TON of pillows from the PREVIOUS set that still matched!] i even tried to give the excuse of "buying it for my best friend, who LOVES green & it totally matches her style" with the full intention of PRAYING that she would decide to give it away & give it to ME! lol the other day, my godmom bought me a NEW bed set (purple & gray) & i saw that pillow again...it's STILL haunting me! i'm thinking i might buy it for my goddaughter's room, which will be decorated pink & green! =) i LOVE that pillow!! it's ridiculous...

    anywho, thanks for the laugh...and don't worry, my wally world is SUPER ghetto. i literally live right up the street from mine, but i choose to go to one in the next town over so i can have a better selection/experience!! lol [sad right..?]
