World Cup and Impulse Shopping

So while I sit here and watch the World Cup Final (GO USA!!!) I realized that I forgot to mention my impulse buy!   I am so excited.. and nervous.  I was shopping with my mom on Wednesday at Wal-Mart and Hobby Lobby for my sister's baby shower and I was telling her all about the Cricut Imagine that I want.  (Again .. I'm not a crafty person... but I just need want it.)  So I woke up Thursday and got the urge to shop for the Imagine on Ebay.  And.There.It.Was.  The bidding was ending in 3 minutes and it was only at $150 (that's a steal!).  So I bid.  And got outbid.  And bid again.  It was all very exciting really.. It's like a game of chicken.  It got up to $183 with 15 seconds left.  I bid $185.  Outbid.  AHHH!!! With 5 seconds left I bid $200.  AND.I.WON!    So ::crossing fingers:: when it arrives on the 20th (it's already in transit) it works.  I really can't wait.  So Excited!


  1. I'm so jealous! I have the expression and there is so much stuff that it can't do:( Card making is my craft of choice and it use it for my classroom all the time. I'm your newest follower.

    1. My mom's side of the family is full of crafters. Me? Not so much. I love it, but use it seldomly... Mainly for school decor, for that - it has come in quite handy... My next impulse buy may just be the Silhouette Cameo... But I'm holding off on that until I take a nice long vacation at the beach. :)
