I didn't mean to, but...

I didn't mean to, but I ended up shopping today.  I shouldn't have.  I didn't need to spend any money.  (I'm not sure if you are aware, but almost chopping your finger off is very, very expensive!) 

Anyway, I had some coupons burning a hole in my pocket, and Jennifer wanted to hit up a few stores, so I went along.  Don't you just love all the birthday coupons you get your birthday month from all the stores you frequent?

Ann Taylor Outlet was one of our stops.  Jennifer got a fabulous deal on a denim military jacket and I got this sweater.  Everything in the store was 40% off and then I had a $15 off coupon, so it ended up being a pretty good deal.  It is cuter on than in the photo because it has a little poof where the cap sleeve connects.


Next we went to White House Black Market.  I needed these shoes like I need a hole in the head, but they were on sale from $88 to $29 and I couldn't resist. 
How cute will they be for the holidays?

We also went to Stein Mart.  I got this picture on a canvas with sparkly snowflakes...
They had three different ones, but I had some self restraint and only bought one.  It was originally only $12.99 and then I had a coupon.  I thought it was a bargain and could imagine seeing something similar in Ballard Designs for $40+.  Most importantly, it met my new standard for holiday decor buying...I actually have the perfect place to hang it during the Holiday Season.

Finally, we made a trip to Sam's Club for some printer toner (an actual work excursion), and I saw this...

I couldn't resist.  I. Love.  Pumpkin.  This makes two batches, but I only made one batch today.  Lord have mercy...it makes so many that I need to open a bakery to get rid of them all! 

I made giant muffins...
I made mini muffins...
Muffins. Muffins. Muffins...muffins coming out of my ears!

And speaking of muffins, how cute is this little muffin today?
She actually performed a service for me today...she herded a spider this morning.
Yes.  She herded a spider.
I saw her herding something in the entry this morning and when I went to see what she had, it was a spider.  A spider the size of a QUARTER!
Good work my little hunter!
