I’m a Failed Christmas Mom

Why, you ask? Because I did the unthinkable. Yesterday, in the midst of doing good deeds and shopping for others, I caved. I couldn’t take it anymore.

I bought something for myself.

I know, I know. You’re all gasping in shock. How dare I? I’m still beating myself with my Mom cane. But before you judge too harshly, listen to the facts.

1. I bought it online. So I wouldn’t find other stuff for me in the store. And also because the store in question has ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING at this time of year. I learned that the hard way last week.

2. It was on sale. Granted, I paid for shipping. Just don’t tell anyone.

3. It was only ONE item. One. Surely that’s not too bad, right? And it’s cute. And blingy. Guess the Girls Down the Hall are rubbing off on me.

No, this would never fly in my office. Never. Ever. But surely I deserve a reward for fighting off the masses in the toy aisles of Target and Walmart, right??

Ready? Here it is:

So maybe, just maybe – I’ll look half as cute as those chicks on the pages of InStyle when I’m out Christmasing around on the weekends. And for a whole lot less than they spend.
