Highlight: I have been wishing for a full length wall mirror for our back entry hall for what seems like years. Er.. it actually has been years. In my defense, it is a tough space to fill — the diagonal wall is nearly 5 feet wide, so many beautiful mirrors fell out of contention due to not being substantial enough to fill the space. Initially, I did find a beautiful bronze mirror at Hobby Lobby that I had placed on my Christmas list for the past two or three years. Christmases came and went.. Aerogardens, Microwave Bacon Crispers, and American Flag Sweaters.. but no mirror. Santa was missing my heavy hinting.
One frustrated Tuesday morning last November, I found myself standing in the bathroom, teetering in my high heels on the edge of the bathtub, attempting to determine if these shoes did indeed match my outfit (not something you want to notice on the walk from the car to your office..). I declared aloud to whoever could hear me (hello, neighbors..) that “THIS IS THE LAST STRAW! Santa is bringing me that mirror!” I cleaned the stroller and carseat out of the back of my car and drove to Hobby Lobby to bring home said mirror, only to discover that the very product I had had my eye on for the past 24 months was now no longer carried in the store. Really?!
