Why IS QVC So Fascinating?

I've never been a QVC person, but the other day I flipped over there to see if I could put my finger on what was so great about it, and I got hooked!  I mean hooked.  That didn't take long.  Do you watch?

And now, any time there is a lull at my house (which is rare with three kids), I flip over to QVC to see what those gals are pitching next.  It's not just shopping; it's entertainment too.  I'll watch for an hour even if they're selling lawn chairs that I don't want.  Either I'm crazy or they are geniuses.  Or both.

I have yet to buy anything, but I'm about to cave on the "anti-aging lip gloss."  Who doesn't need that?!  Don't we all need younger lips?!  Sure!  Nice work, QVC.

After two short weeks watching QVC, I've figured out why it's so addicting.

I dropped the kindergartner off at school today and then stopped at the grocery store with the 4 and 2-year olds.  I ended up with extra cheese pizza, drinkable yogurt I hadn't planned on because they said, "Mama, it's healthy," and an Easter Egg coloring kit that was on sale for 99 cents.  Easter will not be over in our house.

It could have been much worse.  Here's what those sneaky kids tried to put in the cart, but I made them put it back.

What’s Your Best Tipsy Purchase?

Have you ever gone to happy hour and then gone shopping?  Yep!

What did you buy?  I spent $15 on margaritas one time and then went to a store and spent $8000.

If you're thinking about buying something anyway, alcohol can put you right over the edge!  And it can talk you into the strangest things.

Anyone Else Feel Bad For the UPS Guy?

If you're like me, you've done quite a bit of online shopping in the past week or so.  I was actually shopping out ahead of the game and received one order the day after Thanksgiving. Then I shopped more over the holiday weekend and on Cyber Monday, and there are five more orders on the way
