Let me catch my breath

*Blogging frm my phone oooh wee* I used to have a shopping addiction.  I am better now.  Well...I thought I was better.  It was the better part of 3 yrs. ago that I sat myself down, and had an intervention with: "me, myself and I," all three distinct personalities.  "Me" is very frivolous, impetuous, and care free...a free spirit so to speak, while "Myself" has an attitude that can not only "rip you a new one" but can put the fear of God in you if you are doing something you shouldn't!  "I" is very practical, logical, and intelligent (she holds us together).  "We" intervened....had it out.  The shopping was going to tear us apart....so...it ended (the shopping that is).  I snapped my fingers and just like that...problem solved.  Yet, here I stand at an undisclosed department store doing everything in my power to, not only catch my breath, but also maintain my composure as I gawk at the ever appealing, AWE-striking, butterflies-in-my-stomach-making, handbag section.  I find it ironic that Jordin Sparks "One Step At A Time" is playing as I make my way through this predicament, and yet, as I listen to the (somewhat well written) words of this song I just can't help myself.  I've mentally committed to the most extraordinary, most-amazing-color-of-purple-I-have-ever-seen, crocodile skin handbag.......my heart is torn between principle and pleasure.....virtue and vice......right and right-er...will power and supplication...and although buyers remorse may follow (highly doubtful...if you could see this handbag you would understand WHY no one could EVER feel guilty for purchasing such a work of art) I have to "give in" to that part of me that just CAN'T live without it.  After all, EVERYONE (absolutely) NEEDS a purple crocodile skin handbag right?  Don't bother asking how much this is costing me.  I will never tell!  You can torture me with ants and leave me to dry in the sun but I will still be true...I will never divulge that information.  1, 2, 3...DONE!  Cha-ching....pay day for my closet!  Oh no....oh no......WAIT!!!!  There's one exactly like it only in....black!  AAHHHHHH!!!!  Panic.

(emily again..) I've tried overcoming this same addiction SO many times, to no avail... Any tips you may have to drowning out the voices of those amazingly adorable purses, expensive jeans, one-of-a-kind accessories, once-in-a-lifetime-find earrings, surprisingly unique sun-glasses, and to-die-for perfume would be greatly appreciated!
