So.. I was at Homegoods and I saw a big jar in their Easter section filled with Easter candy with big foil wrapped bunnies in it.. I can't describe it well, but believe me when I say it was stinking cute! I wanted it but it was 39.00 and I couldn't make myself spend 39.00 on a jar of Easter candy. If I had been thinking more clearly, I would have realized that I will end up spending that much on candy for all my kids and pies and that I could have enjoyed looking at it on the kitchen counter right up to Easter day and then I could have given them all the candy.. or I could have just never eaten any of it and just put it out year after year. (I have some foil wrapped bunnies and chicks that I've had for years that I store away each year! lol! I hope no one ever tries to eat them! lol!)
Anyways... so like I normally do, I became obsessed and couldn't stop thinking about that stupid jar of Easter cuteness. Homegoods is an hour away and I just couldn't make myself go back to spend all that money on it. But.. I SHOULD have! lol! Because then I got the idea to make my own. And by the time I bought the jar, the 4 big bunnies and all the other candy fillers.. I spent MORE then the 39.00.. and it didn't turn out even remotely close to being as cute as the jar at Homegoods.. soo.. I am seriously considering giving this jar of candy away and going to buy the stupid jar at Homegoods.. Do not do the math because then you will realize just how deep the sickness goes.. Lol!! and dont judge me! LOL!! I know Im a little nuts. If I go back and buy that jar.. I'll surely post a picture!
In other news, I spent the weekend putting out all my Easter cuties and also working.. (work notes.. lots of them...) As for the decorating.. it is getting more overwhelming as the years go by. But I don't see myself cutting back anytime soon. well, I suppose that's not totally true. I only put out the things I love. there were a few things that didnt make the cut. The problem is that I LOVE SO MUCH! lol!!
I only have 4 bins of Easter stuff and buy Sunday afternoon I was already dreading putting Halloween out! LOL!!!!! SERIOUSLY!
But in the end.. the cuteness wins and now its done and the only obsessing going on is whether or not to take a trip to the Homegoods store! heehee.. (I probably wont...)
Happy March first!
