New Buying Trip! Gotta Love To Shop!!!

It's time for our spring buying trip! I've made out my list with ideas I have for the forthcoming holidays. We actually start shopping for Christmas in January! I feel like I am truly celebrating Christmas year-round, lol... But I absolutely love shopping and decorating for Halloween. I drive Mr. Ford crazy! He enjoys shopping as much as I do. I mean, think about this... If I am on a buying mission for a dress ( I design my clothes in my mind and then search endlessly for something that doesn't exist until years later, I should have been a designer!) He will help me search endless stores & malls for weeks on end. What guy does that?? He is very much appreciated!

So with keeping in mind all those endless hours and days of being on my feet I prepared a little bit by having a little retail therapy! I found a really good buy on some Uggs~ they are so comfortable and I loved these when I first saw them in the US Magazine that Kendra Wilkinsen bought for her bridesmaids. Here's a pic~

Did I mention I got this incredible buy? So then I thought I better get some new walking shoes that would match some of my outfits and I love sketchers~ I can walk for days in comfort so I couldn't resist these!As you pretty much can tell I love the color pink! I'm also a fan of Victorian colors, the mauve & burgundy colors to name a few. I snapped a couple pictures that I wanted to show you before I took my Christmas tree down so this will give you a little idea of my color scheme in our living room.
Right before Christmas Mr. Ford Bought me some of my favorite roses, mostly because they go with everything. I actually can't believe these roses are still alive today! They are still absolutely gorgeous.
