To be honest, my brain and sanity are just completely fried. It’s been a long hard week, and the next 36 hours will be brutal as our buyer will either back out of the escrow or give us a long list full of expensive things she wants fixed. Our heater on our rental here in TX is STILL not fixed, and as this is probably the 10th repair that we’ve had to wait months on (our water heater took them 3 months to fix), we’re just frustrated and kind of mad at our landlord. Having a freezing cold house on top of all the crazy escrow stuff is just the “icing” on the cake.
In the interest of distracting myself from the stress of all the living situation stuff, I compiled a list of pretty things that I would love to get, either for my birthday (hear ye, hear ye, husband!) or save up for.
Last week, Jesse and I finally caved and bought an actual platform bed from Craigslist. This duvet cover by Society 6 would match oh-so-perfectly, but at $99 I’m not just going to run out and buy it.
American Eagle moccasin slippers— all of AE’s clearance is 60% off until Monday, making these slippers only $12! On top of that, they also offer free shipping right now on any amount purchased! I had a little eBay money I’ve been saving, so I went ahead and got them.
Fairbault Throw— Can you believe that Target sells such a beautiful blanket? Okay, I can. It’s $80 though, so it’s hardly cheap. Wouldn’t it look so nice with the duvet cover above??
Speaking of Target, I tried on this moto jacket there last night (a little “mommy needs to get away to save her sanity” excursion!) and it was dreamy. Like a glove, I tell you.
Speaking of shoes, I’ve really been wanting a pair of rain boots, but we don’t get enough rain for me to justify this $50 purchase…maybe someday! These boots by Dirty Laundry have both black and brown on them so they can match almost anything.
Alright, there’s my little list of pretty things to buy. Granted, I can’t really buy any of it for a while, since our housing situation is costing an arm and a leg right now (have I complained enough about this lately? no? I can keep going….), but I know that someday we will have spending money again.
What about you? Any of these things on your wishlist?
