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.
