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!!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
