A Day of The Wants

I was in a shopping mood.  Like, all I could think about all day was shopping.  None of it was stuff that I needed per se (for example....I will need new sneakers soon, but not NOW).  I just wanted to go shopping.  Included in my "wants" for yesterday....thanks to some recent monitor shopping:
  • A purple and blue infinity scarf
  • A blue leather purse
  • Nail polish
  • Shoes
  • Alex and Ani bracelet
  • Workout clothes (I have been actively trying to lose weight....)
  • Sneakers
  • Painted Mandala stone
  • Wayward Pines Books (did you watch the tv series this summer??)

It is very rare that I get into this kind of mood.  All that stuff is for me.  I am the gal who can't come up with anything when hubby asks me what I want for my birthday, Christmas, etc.  Well, I guess I have a "wish list" started now. 

A few of the items were on Zulily, so those exact items won't be available later (or probably not....I have noticed some things come back around).  The purse was particularly lovely to me, and I was so tempted to get it ($100). 

But part of the mood was wanting to GO shopping.  I wanted to wander in and out of little shops, get lunch, wander some more.  Maybe get a pedicure.  Sounded great in my mind.

But I didn't.  I didn't get any of it.  I just had a day of "the wants." 

Instead, I worked until 2:30, came home to meet the plumber, made dinner, cleaned the house for 2 showings today, went for a walk with my friend, watered the plants, and called it a night. 

The mood has mostly past now.  Except for the purse......that one is still lingering.  *wink*
