I just clicked over to Amanda's blog and saw the picture she has on her sidebar of her in the eyebrows I sent her a while ago. And it made me a little sad that I didn't do what I normally do when I buy a gift for someone that I would love for myself - which is to keep it. Because those things are hilarious.*
Does anyone else do this? This is why I don't buy presents for people until the day of their party. Because there is a very good chance that I will decide to just hold onto it instead. It's a horrible habit, I know. And I really can't tell you how many times I've done this. It's a lot. Especially to my best friend Cynde. I can't help it if we have very similar taste in things. We're best friends for crying in the mud! We're suppose to be like that. Usually around her birthday I start pulling out things that I have picked up for her over the year and go through and decide what to give her and what to keep for myself. Shameful.
I'm telling you this because maybe I'm feeling a little guilty for all those times when a friend has said, "Hey! That's such a cute bag," and I would be all, "I know," and secretly remembering that I had bought it for their last birthday. It has happened more than once.
*The reason why I did send them to Amanda was because I knew that she would appreciate them better than most people and would take pictures of herself wearing them that she would post on her blog. Mission accomplished.
