Now on to today's topic at hand. I suppose we all have our little "things" where we tend to go overboard. Mr. J has a couple. Three to be exact. He likes shoes. What man needs this many brown shoes? And that is not all of them.
He also has golf. Yep that is two golf bags you see. And some fishing poles in the corner.
There are also fishing poles in other various locations throughout the apartment. Let's just say I am counting down the days as fast as he is for a man cave. I understand the concept of a whole set of golf clubs. Each club has a different function depending on how you want to hit a ball. I am still waiting to understand the need for 5 plus fishing poles. That's down from over 10 though. Let's not get started on the number of reels he has accumulated.
Yes, I rag on my husband for these tendencies. He likes to compare them to my purse habit. I do confess I like expensive bags, however, I argue that I buy a new bag maybe once a year but sometimes its two or three between a purchase. Fishing equipment in our household is much more common.
Really, though, I have some other addictions that far outdo my purses. Mainly, Crate and Barrel. It is a good thing one is not close to me...a nice hour drive to get to the closest store. And I hate paying for shipping so even online I will only make a buy when there is some deal going on with free shipping. Well, there is a deal right now and I just couldn't help myself.
We don't need mugs. I have a cabinet full of mugs, so many it is hard to make them all fit. But check out these cute little cups. I couldn't resist. Plus, they are shades of blue so well it was fate.
Then, there were the kitchen utensils. You can never have too many spatulas and flippers (yep, that is the correct name.) We might have had some problems in the past where certain materials were left on things a bit too long and melting ensued.
Then, there was the dish towels. How cute are these! Again there were pretty blues. But also the veggies. They make me smile so therefore they are a good thing.
I also recently received a gift wrapped in a dish towel. It was so beautiful and you got a little some thing extra for the gift. I am thinking this is a great idea for Christmas....No Trash sounds like a win win for me!
There you have it. I have an addiction to Crate and Barrel. Do you think they have a 12 step program for this? Mr. J, I promise to cut back my random purchases at Crate and Barrel if you say no more fishing poles for the rest of the year. Deal?
