I will admit I did buy a few "extra" things aside from Halloween items for next year and a few Christmas items for my kiddos. Technically, it wasn't November 4th yet, so I'm off the hook. 😉 I have been looking for new throw pillows for the bed for quite sometime. Naturally, when I spotted … Continue reading Waiting It Out.
