out with the old, in with the new

Wow. So can I just say that I'm sorry for epically failing on updating on things I'm thankful for? I knew I shouldn't have made a promise I couldn't keep.

Thanksgiving weekend was the busiest weekend of my life. Honestly - busier than any OBU Homecoming weekend I've ever experienced. Yes. It's true. All because of moving into a new apartment.

Moving is exhausting. It is tiring. It is annoying. It's dumb. It makes me wish we had portals. We could place something in the portal and it would magically appear in the place we want it to in the exact spot we want it in, turned in the exact angle we want it at. If only, if only...

On the topic of moving, most people like to adopt the phrase "Out with the old, in with the new." If you are one of those people, like me, then when moving you are always looking for new things to replace the old things. Like my shower curtain. I had a perfectly good shower curtain that I could have used in my new apartment. But noooo. I had to get a new shower curtain for my new apartment. I'm not sure why I think like this? But I can't help it. It's the way I'm wired.

So today, I want to share with you some new pieces you can use that are cute, trendy, and cheap!

This little treasure is only $19.99 at Pier 1 Imports!

What a great accent for your coffee table! and it's only $29.99!

This runner rug is 2'4 x 6'7 and it's only $34.99!
[& during the holiday season, Overstock.com has free shipping!]


[sorry to all you OCD folks out there for the alignment of the photo. that's just the way it's cropped]
Every girl loves flowers! So why not having a pretty vase on hand to put them in? and it's only $26.49!           

I love candles! But flameless candles are amazing! They give the illusion of a lit candle without having to deal with the risk of a fire. This set even comes with a remote control. and it's only $29.99!

If you purchase this candle, not only do you get FREE SHIPPING, 50% of the profits go towards cancer research at St. Jude Children's Hospital. and it's only $29.00!
[remember my fashion for a passion post?]

I hope you all get inspired by some of the pieces I have shared today! Remember that these would also make great Christmas presents! :)

I write what I know. and I know All Things Girl.
