Its time to grow up!!

Do you every just think to yourself what the heck have I been doing? On Monday I happen to put a pic of my new shoes on Facebook and a friend commented “where the heck do you get all this money to shop”. Even though it was just a simple comment I thought to myself “wow do people really think I shop that much”. So as soon as my hubby got home the first I did was ask him babe do I shop a lot? He looked at me and with a straight face said YESS! So then I ask does it affect our marriage and he said Sometimes. Right away he noticed that I got sad and so he grabbed me and hugged me. He said “I love you kiki but a lot of the times I have to sacrifice what I want for what u want. Its ok though because I love you and I want you to have everything you want. “ I thought to myself am I really that much of a selfish person! I looked around my apartment and right away I found my answer! I don’t have anything extra nice in my house! We really need a new set of couches and have been putting it off. But walk in to my dressing room and it’s filled with tons of fabulous pieces and designer bags! Don’t get me wrong I love the fact that I have a dressing room filled with so many goodies. But when did I lose track of what my husband and my house need and put all of my wants first! I honestly felt/feel horrible!

Don’t get me wrong I know that im a good wife! My house is always clean, food is always made and I truly love and cater to my husband but when it comes to money I really need to set my priorities straight! I know it’s perfectly fine to shop and I will always shop but I just need to realize that sometimes its ok to not shop or to shop for different things other than me!!  

Yesterday I took the day to focus on my house and home décor! I really have been slacking we moved in two months ago and still our apartment isn’t up to par! So I spent the day cleaning, rearranging furniture and coming up with ideas for our living room! Since it is Wednesday I still wanted to participle in Michelle's and Shanna's blog hop! So todays theme is Home Décor!! 

I am thinking about going for some classic but glam couches with some statement pieces?! what do you think? 
I found this mirror at target and im in love with it!! do you like?

Have a great Wednesday and thanks for taking the time out of your day to visit me!!

  1. While our house is completely finished & always up to par, my hubs & I had the same comvo. That's why he bet me tht I couldn't shop until April. Literally the same convo. But he uses the money he gets now on stupid stuff. He keeps saying he wants a new grill or a bow or a riding lawn mower but he spends money on alcohol, cigarettes & going out to eat with his army friends. So crazy. He could have already had one of his wants by now. Lol. So silly!

  2. Love all these pins!! and where do people get off thinking they can just say what they want all the time?! its so infuriating!

  3. I am right there with you! I always want to buy shoes, clothes and accessories, but sometimes it is better to save for the bigger items :) Lovely blog - just followed! :)

  4. Oh girl, I am right there with you. I told myself this year that I was going to seriously SLOW down on my shopping habits. It's been hard, but I always stop and ask myself "Do you REALLY need this?" I love clothes and fashion so it's kinda been hard for me, but I have seen a difference in our bank account. That's for sure!!

  5. That last living room is my fave! That's actually something I'm in the process of planning out now. You may be beating yourself up right now but give yourself sme credit. You realized it was a problem and have resolved to change it. I fall victim to not saving and thus don't have nice stuff because of it. So far I've been working on not touching my measley savings so that if I do need/want to make a purchase there will be money there!

  6. I love how honest this post is! As a girl, I think it is hard to limit shopping-but I need to do so also!

  14. A lot of us who are under constant pressure tend to eat too much and do not take good care of
    their bodies. If you weigh yourself everyday or every other day and see that you've gained weight, your motivation may go down and you'll be likely to give up.

    What I tell my clients is that they need to schedule their
    fitness time like it's a doctor's appointment.
