A shopping trip, a lunch and a partridge and a (well, you get the idea)

I finally live in a home large enough to host Easter lunch! I love having friends over and always have, but it would have to be tiny gatherings because I lived in tiny places. I took a few pics before people arrived. Then my camera died. =(

The dishes are new. I might have a sickness when it comes to dishes. I love different patterns and shapes and colors for various seasons. I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond to buy napkin rings. I left with a new set of dishes...AND napkin rings.

It was fun setting up the tables and anticipating having people over. I love it!

Just as I was going to take a pic, my camera died. Thanks, DJ!

On a separate note, I went shopping a couple weeks ago. The past couple of years, I've been trying to step outside my box. Not jump the moving truck by any means, but have a little more of a statement with my clothing. Whether that means jewelry or a certain item of clothing or purse or shoes. Just trying to stretch my horizons.

So I go shopping. Always fun when there are cute things in the stores AND I actually have money to spend. (You know that doesn't happen often!)

Anybody else's dressing room look like this when they go shopping?

A pile of Things to Try On, Things I like and are Possibilities, Things that either Don't fit or Don't look as good on, Things that are Definitely being Purchased.

That's how I do it. That's pretty much how I've always done it. And there are NEVER enough hooks in the dressing rooms, so the clothing becomes piles on the floor.

But I had fun! I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone. I bought two jackets!

Did you hear that!? Jackets! I've never been a jacket wearer, but I now own two.

We'll see how this goes!
