I think I’ve had the same pair of brown Kenneth Cole sandals since we lived in Orlando. I bought them when I was doing substitute teaching and still they are my favorites.
My favorite pair of jeans were bought at Rugged Warehouse. It’s one of those places that carries imperfect jeans and sells them at like .o1% of the original price.
I have never had curtains in any of the seven homes where I’ve lived. I still don’t have a bedside table.
And I have never ever bought myself a pair of frivolous shoes or a coat just because it was cute. I’m just not like that. I’m not a shopper.
I’m the kind of person who looks at a mannequin and says, “I’ll take that.” I’m not good at picking things out and pieceing them together. That’s why online shopping is so attractive to me.
So, it should come as no shock to my husband when I could care less which ceiling fan my children have in their rooms. Today we spent way too long at Home Depot looking at ceiling fans, bathroom lighting, hall lights and chandeliers.
My husband was inspecting them all and thinking about their lifetime warranty, internal wiring and general likability for the next decade. While I was basically playing Pick A B or C. He finally said, “I can tell you’re not interested in this. Why don’t you go home?”
So, now I’m at home with two napping kids while my hubby picks out the interior of my new home. And that’s just the way I like it!
