"Our new felt countdown calendar helps everyone get into the Thanksgiving spirit well in advance. It has 60 I am thankful cards for each day's pocket that promote the act of gratitude."
Seriously, I went to the outlets last week and wandered into the Pottery Barn Outlet when lo and behold I saw this sweetness! I love family traditions and immediately thought of dozens of ways we could use this to create memories! So I sat there, held it in my hands and debated...
"I am here to buy clothes for our children, not things for our house," says Practical Sabrina.
"But how often do you ever buy things for the house? Really, splurge a little. You only live once..." says Very Impratical Sabrina.
Practical Sabrina replies, "I have been splurging, see all these bags?"
"Um, those were clothes for your kids. That's not splurging!"
"Apparently you didn't see the price of those tights for the sisters! Splurge. I've already spent too much money and I don't need to spend anymore. Especially $70 on something that will be hung on the wall for 28 days. It's adorable, cute and I really want it, but it is not in the budget!"
Impractical Sabrina says (very unfairly), "But you can't put a price on memories..."
"You're right," says Practical Sabrina. "I can't, but Dr. Mad can and he would think that's a lot of cash."
Impractical Sabrina replies with, "Who are you kidding, he doesn't care. He wants you to be happy and you know he wouldn't put a price on your happiness."
So Practical Sabrina stood there and stared, dreamed, imagined and then walked out of the store. And the whole way home thought about this adorable wall hanging.
And apparently is still thinking about it.
