The Boycott is Over!!

And while the day after it started, I was informed that the package was already on its way, I still decided to take a(nother) break and wait till it arrived. I am so very pleased though, that even this morning Bree complained to me that she had another comment on her site about it. HA. My loyal minions, I LOVE YOU!

But now she is mad at me, because I exchanged the gift. (Wallflowers from Bath & Body Works, the scent was not my style, but I loved the gesture. I did get pineapple orchid and wild honeysuckle instead.) I don't know how to make it up to her, because we had discussed this very subject (exchanging, me being picky about gifts, yes, I am a jerk) in October, before her birthday. I told her in advance about my pickiness, but I guess I am truly a rude person, and for that I apologize, but still love her and her thoughtfulness. And right now, my house smells awesome!!

And while I was there, I picked up a pineapple shaped pineapple orchid candle which is divine. And this one is pink, because the top of the white one I was carrying to the front to purchase flew off and shattered. Nuts.


Which brings me to my next post...the paint color.

Glad to see you're off your strike. I've been known to exchange 90% of the gifts I've been given. There is nothing wrong with being picky, why should you suffer with something you don't love?? My problem is that I usually don't tell anyone that I've exchanged it, so when they come over and are like "Where's that doll that we gave Paisley for Christmas?" I have to make up some lie that she must have left it at her friends house or something lame like that. I'm a terrible lier, but somehow it's easier for me to make up a believable story after the fact than to tell someone that I took their gift back - it always seems to come across WAY worse than I'd intended.

Awww, I ain't mad at ya. Thanks for the shout out - although you really had no choice :) I was looking, and the scent I wanted you to buy wasn't honeysuckle - It's called Velvet Tuberose. Oh well...Maybe next time.

I love the green. Baby poop and all.

I love love love the green, but almost any green is good in my book.
