Homegoods $100 GC Giveaway

Last Saturday I took a little trip to Atlanta for a private Blogher shopping event at Homegoods. For me to tell you it was awesome would be a total understatement. I mean, who wouldn't love shopping with free money. :)

As I mentioned in my last post, I had decided before I went to try to buy things for the new baby's room. Yeah, um, that didn't really happen. I walked into Homegoods and lost my FREAKING MIND! My needs and wants were having an all out war in my head.

 Things I need.... boring kitchen scissors. 

Things I want... All of this fun summer stuff!

Things I need...new kitchen strainer. 

Things I want...All of these adorable comforters. 

Luckily for me I came to my senses before walking out with 100 cute tumblers. I was given a $100 giftcard to spend, and it was a lot harder to spend then I thought it was going to be. The prices were amazing so I managed to get a full cart of stuff and still come in under budget.

I found some really fun kitchen scissors, bamboo cutting boards, and this adorable bright summery strainer. The best of both worlds. Fun and practical!

I also found something for London and even a few things for the new baby's nursery. 

I even spoiled myself with a new set of wine glasses. I know, I know! I'm can't drink, but I won't be pregnant forever. And in the mean time I will just pretend by using them for fresh fruit punch. It sure beats non-alcoholic beer :)

Here is my loot from my mini shopping spree.

Homegoods Review & Sweepstakes

A few days ago I found out that I will be attending a very special private shopping event in Atlanta on Saturday, May 21st at one of my favorite stores, HOMEGOODS!

OMG! Can I please just express to all of you right now how excited I am about this. 

While pondering what I was going to buy while I was there, I had a million things pop into my head. 

New wine rack?

 Wait, I'm pregnant and can't drink. 

Maybe a cute mirror to decorate the guest room? 

 Wait, that has become a MAN room! Why waste my riches on that? 

Then I got it!!! Decorations for the new baby's room!

 Maybe a toy box like this one? 

What would you buy with a shopping spree to Homegoods?

No matter what I buy I know it is going to be awesome. I'm sure you are all very jealous (as you should be haha!), but don't worry there is something in it for you too! Blogher has a sweepstakes for ten $25 gift cards on the BlogHer Prizes & Promotions Page. Go enter now so you can win too!!!
