If it’s not just to your taste,
Get off your butts there’s no time to waste!
You can remodel that ugly room
that makes you feel all full of gloom.
Head on down to your local store,
And you can spend a dollar (or more).
They’ll trade you for your hard earned money
And I’m not joking or joshin’ you hunny,
This is what might come to pass
as you start that remodel task.
You will drive, music on,
make a turn, and make it wrong
You went right and said, that’s fine…
I go here quick, and I’ll have time
To get the things that I wrote down
I’ll just peek here, then turn around!
You pop into that cute, fun store
and roam around and poke some more.
Now focus, remember the important list?
But what’s this now, a new body mist!
You’ll left the house with goal in mind
Do you think that is what you’ll find?
No, you’re attention was not paid
How was that mistake just made?
A random thing you didn’t need,
In spite of your determined creed,
will end up in your awesome truck
oh joy, oh bliss, oh man, what luck!
You found some treasures, you feel great!
oh no, time’s past, now your late!!
And your list was left in aisle 2
right beside that pretty red shoe!
Shrug, you bought expensive pants
That fit too tight, but you took a stance
And said I’ll diet, that’s what I’ll do
Don’t you judge, you’ve done this too!
You blame it all on the wrong turn
and smile big as you burn
the receipt from your shopping spree
at TJ Maxx, not Home Depot…hehe!
As you know, I am determined to remodel that gross laundry room that lurks at the end of my hallway. I am going to do it for sure. It will be kinda fun to pick out new fixtures, new hardware, paint, storage, accessories…
meah…I’d rather go to TJ Maxx. That place is so fun. I can buy some cute accessories for that laundry room…plus, I can buy some new books for the kids! We were there yesterday, and we found this book at TJ Maxx for $8.99. That’s a $4 savings Y’ALL!!! That series is amazing by the way!!! If you don’t have these books yet, you have to get them! ahem….See how easy it is to get distracted while shopping?!
I love shopping at TJ Maxx for cute outfits. I just started a new page on my blog called Daily Style Card where I post cute outfits for discounted prices. I worked in fashion for 7 years, and it is still my passion, so I am super excited about adding that to Simply My Swank. Sorry Home Depot, I found it much more rewarding picking out that cute outfit, instead of the pulls for my cupboard doors in the laundry room…
I also love working on projects around my house. It’s super fun to own a home and to customize little things here and there. I also think it’s super fun to buy new clothes and look cute now that I am back to a healthy weight. It is an awesome reward for all of my hard work. That 10 Day Detox made me feel so healthy, and I feel great in my clothes. It’s fun to get dressed in the morning and feel confident and beautiful. I am pumped to see how beautiful my laundry room looks after I complete my remodel! This new task is going to be really rewarding too.
Please keep me grateful and thankful for all of the things I have. Help me to be humble and responsible with my shopping. I am an example to my children and I want to raise them knowing that hard work pays off. I want to stay focused on my goal and achieve the tasks that I have set for myself.
Thank you for fun days with my children. We love them so much and we are very thankful for all of the talented authors that make story time so much fun. Please bless our home. We love you so much!
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; …
