Shopping Always Makes a Girl Feel Better

Doesn't it?  I'll be honest, I really don't enjoy shopping all that much.  I'm one of those when I do, I pick it up, walk all the way around the store and put it back.  Why is that exactly??  Since we've moved into the house I've had to do a lot of shopping.  I told DH it's like getting married all over again, except the fun part is missing, lol.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't mean that exactly in a bad way, BUT when you and your dearest hubby have been in very tight quarters for 4 months, and you're not sure when you are going to find a  home, well......... moving on, enough said.
So, I've had to buy everything from soap to furniture.  I have really enjoyed buying furniture, it's all the little stuff I hate.  Even shopping for clothes.  My latest task has been finding bedding for our new bedroom suite that arrived Friday morning, yay!!  It is beautiful!
The next task was finding bedding for it.  Originally I wanted this black damask bedding, which so does not go with it.  I have looked high and low for something to go with it, and "our house".  You know everyone really has a style or look.  I've just never figured out how to classify mine.  Anyways, I bought this today......
Yes, I love it.  It even looks great on the bed.  I also bought pillows but not enough I found.  They had those nice pillows for 60% off at JC Penney today.  What a deal that was.  I have our guest bedroom now to work on as far as bedding.  I bought a bed, it actually looks somewhat similar to this one, but it's rounded at the top instead of straight.  It's less than a week until Kathryn is here with me for my birthday.  Oh yes, how lovely to be turning 34.  I don't mind it really.  I never thought I would live to see 35, if I have another year like this one, I'm guessing I won't.  Anyways, she will be here on Friday.  We are going to head over to The Glitz
for tea and then on over to Keeneland to check things out.  Keeneland is a horse track here in Ky.  Even though I am not a gambler, nor encourage anyone to be, you really should go for the experience and to see the grounds.  It is breath taking.  
We are really looking forward to that.  Hopefully the weather will stay good.  Although it has rained that weekend every year for as long as I can remember.  I am loving this fall weather though.  It is so dry here the leaves are barely changing other than brown.  We need rain!!

I love the bed linens...so bright and cheerful but relaxing.

Enjoy each piece you buy, it is a journey, you are discovering yourself as you shop.

I LOVE it Maria! That's some great bedding colors! Of course I am a bit biased as red is my favorite color. I'm soooo excited about coming to spend the weekend with you! Cannot wait...just another 4 days and I'm there!

Keeneland and The Glitz are gonna be great. I've never been to horse races before but I'm excited to see the action and the scenery. The Glitz will be a wonderful treat as well! LOL...I'm not going to want to go home on Sunday!

Love ya!
