I have never been a total girly girl. Yes, I do get my nails done every other week and I get pedicures in the summer. I can hardly pass on a smokin' hot pair of spike heels and VictoriasSecret.com is my favorite place to shop.
But I am also comfortable in an old pair of blue jeans, boots, a flannel shirt and hanging out by a campfire in the middle of nowhere. I love taking care of my mules, goats and dogs. I am not afraid to tackle just about any home improvement project on my own. I have made more than my fair share of mistakes, but I always get it done....eventually.
As most of you are aware, the home I purchased after TJ died was a repossession and it wasn't in the best of shape. I have been working on it for over a year now, although I did take about 6 months off because I was just tired of it and my attitude was getting bad. But, as of last weekend I think I got my "remodeling mojo" back! I have a rejuvenated sense of "I can do this and I can do it well"! I am even looking forward to tackling the yard. I have been looking at it for quite a while now and finally have a plan. The expense will be minimal since I intend to do it myself, but the payoff will be huge when it is done. I have 1.5 acres with lots of trees. Yards with large mature trees are not all that common in Arizona and why I bought a house with trees I will never know. The trees had me intimidated at first, but no longer, I am slowly whipping them into shape.
I thought today I would share with you two of my purchases the last couple of weeks. It truly is "two worlds colliding".
Yesterday I stopped at Home Depot on my way home from work. Which, in my opinion, that store rivals Victoria's Secret, just on a different level. I bought this and I could not be more excited about my purchase! Also, they were running a 12 months same as cash if I put it on my Home Depot credit card. I love doing that just because credit card companies stick it to consumers so frequently that I enjoy using their money for a change.

A few weeks ago I stopped into a store after my nail appointment and saw these shoes on clearance. Strappy with a heel....my name written all over it! Love them!
Sometimes two worlds do collide out of necessity. I am happy in both and would not want to spend 100% of my time in either. We all need variety in our lives.
