Life Without A Credit Card

There are some days I am really glad I no longer have credit cards, and there are some days I really wish I could whip one out and charge until the guilt sets in. When the Boden catalog comes, I definitely have mixed feelings.

*Now in US sizes! Love that because the UK sizes always seem to run small to me!



  1. Love Love Love the blue sweater...and the fact that I don't use credit cards either. You go girl!

  2. Oh yes, the love/hate relationship with the credit card. I can't wait to get rid of mine - again. Love the colors in your post!

  3. No CREDIT CARD?!??!?!?! EEEEKKKK!!!!

  4. Good for you not having a credit card! I always look through the Boden catalog, drool, and then realize I really don't "need" anything in there. Then I usually go to Target and find some suitable replacements for 1/4 of the cost! After all, half of the fun is just getting something new!

  5. Being CC Debt Free feels better than any new outfit! :)

    I still keep an emergency CC for smaller expenses, but not seeing those balances every month has been a relief for me too.

    And it's an accomplishment to be paid off too isnt it?

    (I saw on GMA the other morning, the average US family has $10k in CC debt. I almost fell off my chair.... :| be thankful!)

  6. I love Boden but haven't purchased anything from them. Good to know about the sizes. I recently ordered 2 dresses from Mod Cloth and I think they were meant to fit a barbie doll. TINY!

  10. I ordered the blue and green dress last week and it hasn't arrived yet. I am thrilled they not only have US sizes, but also US sizes in TALL.

  11. I am crazy about that dress, but like you I no longer have a credit card--just too much temptation!

  12. I understand!! I am so tempted to shop all the time, thank goodness for no credit cards! I'd go crazy! But I'd have a great closet... ;)

  13. I too have a love hate (I am in the latter stage now) with CC. I hope I never use them again!

  14. You don't understand- I am obessed with Boden. No lie I just ordered 200+ worth of clothes for my 10 month old because they are so cute and stylish. Hubby probably won't like it too much but oh well! ha! Found your blog through another mom blogger and I just love it and your posts are so funny and witty. I just love it! Would love for you to come and visit me if you get the chance. I have a cooking blog with great recipes and I am also doing a Lisa Lenoard jewerly giveaway this week! come and enter!

  15. LOVE LOVE LOVE the blue sweater - I don't charge it either, but some days I wish I did!!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back . Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets. Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad. Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!! Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night . I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

The Power of Prayer

I wanted to update on a previous post about my uncle ( you can read it here ). In September, he was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He has undergone numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and received results back from his latest PET scan this Monday. Of chief concern was the tumor in the lower lobe of the right lung and the lymph nodes in the center of his chest. The scan showed that there was NO cancer activity in the lymph nodes! All in all, it was a great report! My aunt and uncle, with their grandkids. My prayer list is long for friends and family members struggling with disease and lately, I hear of so many children struggling as well. It's so hard not to question God during these times, but to put complete faith in him - which is much easier said than done! Isaiah 40:31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Another wonderful praise that happe

Pretty Women

I think I've seen the movie Pretty Woman about 100 times and it will always be my favorite. My husband thinks it's the cheesiest movie he has ever seen, but hey, he's not the target audience. So, my tour of Rodeo Dr started at the Reg Bev Will (Pretty Woman fans, you know what I'm talking about). Walking through it, the lobby looked so much smaller than in the movie. We ended up at the back entrance, and plopped down on a bench and acted like we owned the place for a bit while watching for anyone famous. We saw numerous $100 thousand+ cars, and one chick with long blonde hair (only from the back) that had to be famous, but we didn't see her face. Then, we walked down Rodeo, into a couple of stores that I couldn't afford to buy a keychain in, tried on a $1,200 pair of shoes, and walked right into a celebrity sighting. One of my goals while in LA was to see someone famous. And, she may not be on the A-list, but it was still pretty cool. Meet the beautiful Cam
