Matchy-matchy green sweaters ...

So, I was out shopping today. Yes, I might have a problem. I might shop too much. {I am actually going to blame this on BFF. Normally he doesn't like to be blamed for things ... but I don't think he'll mind this time because he'll just be happy he's getting a shout-out on my blog. It feeds his ego.} I am actually not so concerned about my shopping addiction. It goes right along with my eating and eating-out addictions {yes, two completely separate additions. 1. I eat far too much and 2. I eat out way too much}. I hear good things come in threes though ... right?

Anyway, this post is not to talk about my addictive personality disorder {self-diagnosed, of course ... just like my ADD ... which now that I think of it, will most likely be the topic of my next post. Please. Contain your excitement}. This post exists to talk about what I saw while out shopping ...


Have you ever seen a display like this before? I know I have. Countless times. But tonight was the first time that it crossed my mind the complete and profound importance that your dinnerware and bedroom set should color coordinate.


I don't know how I have lived my entire long-legged life purchasing these items separately without a concern in the world if they were matchy-matchy. But this display ... this display has changed that. In fact, it has changed my life.

From now on, anytime I go to purchase a bedroom set, I will take my dishes with me. Just to make sure they coordinate. Just in case I ever want to not only bring my my tea cup, plate, and place mat into my room, but for all the occasions I place those items on my bed.

Thank you, Dillard's. Thank you! Changing one life at a time with your thought-provoking displays. My life is just that much more complete now. Word to your mother.

Return to me.

Great movie.

Let's be honest Mindy. Odds are that your bedding and dinnerware already match because they're both pink. Am I right?

Return to me. *sigh* I love that flick...do I get extra points if I now have to watch it tonight? Because I plan on blaming you the entire time. :)

I'm with Mike, aren't they both pink anyway? But I'm glad that you have called my attention to this and I'm even more glad that now that I think about it my plates do Match my bedding (my plates are beige so they match a lot of things). So I guess I was already pretty high-class without even trying to, which makes me super high-class.

I liked the Return to Me quote in your title. That's one of my favs!
