Almost a year ago I took this photo with my phone while at Lowe's:
I know it was almost a year ago because it was between a Halloween photo and a Thanksgiving photo.
(I should have been a detective!)
I've been wanting to replace my entryway light fixture for a very long time but I wasn't willing to spend $140.
For many people $140 is not terribly expensive.
But I rarely buy something at full price -
I decided to be patient and wait for the perfect fixture at the perfect price.
This morning after several errands and not finding one very specific item I need for my son's school project, I decided to go ahead and stop at Lowes on the off chance they would have what I needed.
With no luck in the lumber department I proceeded to head out of the store through an aisle near the lumber.
And then I spied it on a clearance end cap no where near the lighting department...
MY LIGHT FIXTURE FOR LESS THAN THIRTY FIVE FREAKING DOLLARS!
Can you believe it?
I almost cried right there!
My husband told me to grab it and hurried me to the check out before I could have my
'Miss America winner happy cry' moment.
But that's how it felt!
I wanted to cry and smile and wave while holding my box containing the light fixture I photographed a year ago!
It's mine, all mine!
VICTORY IS MINE!
Total kismet and I should probably buy a lottery ticket tonight.
But I think I may be too busy hanging my new entryway light fixture!
À la vie et à l'amour
