In Need of a Fall Intervention...

Seriously. It's like everywhere I go "FALL" is yelling at me:

"Chelle, buy me!"

"Chelle--you don't need me, but toss me in your cart!"

"Chelle--I know you're trying to lose weight, but eat me!" says the candy corn, caramels for caramel apples, pumpkin spiced lattes....

"Chelle--buymebuymebuyme!"

You don't believe me?

Exhibit A:

Ran to the store tonite...(thank GOD Target isn't open yet! Lord help Leo's wallet me when it does!). You know, Wal-Mart...it's pretty much all we have around here.

Anyway.

I went to get a few necessities.

Two phone calls from Leo wondering where I was, and a cartload of stuff--which I know I didn't go to buy--later...I was home.

With Leo shaking his head at all of the bags.

And Bella and I happy as can be.

All of this fall madness is like a sickness...

Tell me--are you in need of a fall intervention, too?

Or am I the only one with no seasonal self control...

"Seasonal self-control" Haha!

Nope, none here. I keep buying stuff for Baby Girl, not me. I made her first tutu, and I'm working on the tiara. (Halloween)

Yet, I'm still schlepping around town in old yoga pants. What's wrong with this picture...

Girl, I have to STAY AWAY from the fall stuff. I went to Hobby Lobby to get ribbon for my daughters hair for volleyball and ended up in the fall/Christmas section! Then walked out with NO ribbon for Kristen! See, I completely understand!

This is so funny! I'm just going to avoid going to any place that sells anything seasonal related. I seem to want to buy everything I see...truth is that I don't have anywhere to put anything else :)

Maybe we should start a support group

I lack complete discipline when it comes to shopping so I'm trying SO hard to stay out of stores. And, if by chance I have to go buy something I have my husband cary the credit cards/money because I'd go on a shopping spree if I had them. So sad...

Lindsay said...

I so understand.. The issue I have is finances are snug right now so I just Can't buy it.. but man o man do I want to!

Seasonal self control= I have none. Fall and Christmas, nope. Not a chance!

I have been really good so far but yesterday I busted out a Pumpkin Roll Candle and it is really getting me in the mood for fall. I did order Carter's costume the otehr night.

It's too dang hot here still for me to get into Fall stuff yet. But I do want to put some mums and pumpkins out before baby comes, if I get around to it...
