stop the presses............

It seems I have lost my desire to shop.
To spend money somewhat frivolously, as it were, on items that make me happy for a small amount of time.
its all so tragic.
This afternoon I had a few hours to myself and about $25 on a Target  gift card while Babe was occupied with football.
So I went to see what I could see in the way of 'cute-stuff'.
And they do have some cute stuff
But nothing really sparked my fancy clothes/shoe wise.
and that made me sad.
I headed over to the book aisle  to see that would quench my desire to acquire something to make my heart go pitter pat and was delighted to discover they had
which I missed grabbing on my shopping spree run.
But then I saw
and
and this too!

Oy Vey! What's a girl to do?
Of course I really wanted PW's cookbook as I've tried many of her recipes before and we have loved every single one.
But cupcake cuteness x like 1000???
And hello slow cooker recipes that looked absolutely delightful!
I was completely torn!
And somewhat shocked.
(Here I had a free $25 bucks and I want to spend it on a cookbook????
Who am I?)
I shook my head clear and spent about 30 minutes debating about what to purchase.
PW finally won out simply because that's what I came there for but holy cuteness batman - those cupcake books?
I need them. I want them. I have to have them.
Like for serious.
And I seriously considered going against my gut and our budget and purchasing them on a whim.
But then I came to my senses and thought about how Babe would just pull out our


that we received as a wedding gift citing it as a reason to NOT buy yet another cupcake book.
Rational won out so I purchased my book and left.
I came home and immediately started poring through the recipes.
I cannot.wait.to.get.started.
Oh.my.word.
The stuff in there is going to knock my husband's socks off!!!!
As I was writing this out I got the brilliant idea of looking up the other three cookbooks on Amazon
and doing a bit of a price comparison.
Think Amazon might be winning.
So can anyone guess what I'll be blowing my paycheck on?
Mmmhmm. That's right.
Cookbooks.
Cuz I'm so hard core.

But I'm really excited I must say.
The thought of all those fancy new recipes just waiting for me to test out.........(swoon)
I love to entertain and am finding a lot more joy in cooking new and exciting foods that my family and friends will enjoy gives me joy.
What can I say?
I'm a simple girl.
