It’s raining. Like pouring buckets. Like the kind of rain that makes you want to curl on the couch with an extra cup of coffee and shop the morning away.
I’m totally freaking out about my return to work in a few weeks, and doing retail therapy as a way to soothe my fears of returning to the workforce and the ‘mommy guilt’ that goes along with it.
I’ll confess that I do some shopping in-person, but most is done under the cover of my email address, boxes received and stashed before the hubby comes home (therefore no lying about purchases required). Although, I do often call my Nordstrom boxes a ‘free gift with purchase’, which is a complete lie and open joke in our house!
Anyway, I’ve been using Ebates to shop online lately. A friend suggested it, because if you click through their site to start your shopping, you earn a rebate on your purchases. I’ve earned almost $30 (told you I’ve been doing retail therapy!) and they have most of my favorites sites for doing damage: Nordstrom, J. Crew, Target, Red Envelope, Amazon, Macy’s, etc.
So, that totally justifies all the purchases, right? Especially the fact that I had to buy new work pants in a bigger size (it’s funny, cause the depression that caused only made more things end up in my shopping cart…).
And, another thing I’m loving (since this is turning into a random post!) is the Furminator.
After giving my mother shit about posting about it on facebook, this happened:
Let’s be honest, I don’t have time to devote to a ton of cleaning these days, however, I’m still pretty obsessed with having a neat and tidy house. I’ve been using it for a week and see a NOTABLE difference in the amount of shedding in the house. Crazy, wish I was the person who came up with that idea!
You can find it at Petco, Amazon, etc. Here’s a link for you:
That thing really is amazing. It’s the best $28 I’ve spent recently, and if you read the above comments, you’ll know that I’ve spent a lot of $28 recently (or more!)…
Lastly, I’m loving this:
Consume with caution (and, preferably, some food), or this will happen:
Editor’s Note: I’ve tried to crop this half a gazillion times so you don’t have my personal information. It is not cooperating. If you go stalker-crazy, just know that I will kick your ass (and be secretly flattered). Thanks.
That wine is amazing. It gives you super-human powers to think anything is possible. It’s probably what Kim Jung Un drinks for breakfast. Only explanation.
And, with that, I’ll add the required cute Maddie picture and get back to my online shopping.
Happy Friday, Friends! Hope yours is starting with less of a headache then mine…
