$500 & Two Twenty One

Today's guest is Chelsea from Two Twenty One.

Chelsea is a talented one.  Her photography skills impress me.  We have bonded over our love of sarcasm and blogging.  I'd say something about how sweet she is but let's leave it at talented....


Hi, Decor and the Dog readers!  (I'm assuming someone is reading this because, let's face it, most readers skip out on their favorite blogs when they know there will be guest bloggers.  I speak the truth.)  I'm Chelsea from Two Twenty One, where I blog about my amazing Craigslist luck, DIY projects, and food, specifically of the dessert variety.
People don't often offer me $500.  Wait.  No one has ever offered me $500.  Legally.  Just Kidding.  Kinda.  Anyway, when Michelle said that she'd "give" me $500, and I could "spend" it on whatever I want, I decided to "spend" it all on myself.  I could say that I'd give it to charity or use it to plant 100 trees but that's not as much fun as fictitiously blowing it.  So here we go!
1. Uggs ($160)  Are they ugly?  Yes.  Are they the most comfortable shoes ever?  You betcha.  I have two pairs, and I love them.  They save my poor, ice cold feet during winter.  I wouldn't mind a new pair of chestnut Uggs since the sole on my 4 year old one's are starting to show their age.
2. Nook ($99)  I told my husband that I'd finally read The Hunger Games if he buys me a Nook.  I still don't have a clue what the hype is about...  And I don't need a fancy e-reader.  Why?  Because if I get a fancy one I'll get distracted with the web browser, and I won't get any reading done.
3. Indiana t-shirt ($20)  I like this shirt.  And I've lived in Indiana for all my 27 years.
4. Pottary Barn cable-knit throw ($79)  Love me a nice, warm, cable-knit throw.  They're so pretty, and soft, and pretty.
5. Kate Spade Mrs. Necklace ($78) I like this necklace.  And I'm married.
6. Glittery Toms ($54)  I need some fall shoes.  Everyone and their sister is all "I love my Toms!"  So I'd like to jump on the bandwagon, please.  That, and since a child will get a pair of shoes from my imaginary purchase, I'm technically giving to charity.
7. Anne Taintor magnet ($5) I love Anne Taintor.  I get her calendar every year, and I have a handful of her magnets-- except this one.  In case you can't read the text, the magnet reads "you're right! it does look like her Facebook picture!"

Those items total $495.  So my charitable self is "buying" the first 5 people to comment 99 cent Frosty's.  You're welcome.
What would you buy if Michelle gave you $500?  Don't tell me that you'd donate it to charity, liar.
What do you think of my choices?  Have a favorite?

You all know how much I love voting for things.  It's a sickness.  Be sure to vote for Chelsea's dresser turned console table daily during the month of September!  Vote here!

  1. I'd buy some moccasins & the rest would go to those oh so lovely student loans.

    I'd like my frosty today please ;)

  2. I have the Kate Spade Necklace. I adore it. I wear it every day. I think its b/c my husband give it to me as a surprise at my bridal shower.

  3. ha ha! i might get those uggs, too, and a huge sweater. anything left can go to the leggings. :) i have a pair of uggs, too- a gift since i am too cheap to buy them- and they are the most comfy things ever. i lived in them alst winter and plan to do the same this winter.

  4. Cool shirt! If I had $500, I think I'd use it to dole out Texas t-shirts for everyone. But at $20 a pop, that wouldn't go too far... However, $500 worth of $.99 Frosty's is pretty tempting in this 100+ degree heat :)

  5. Dude. Sign me up for a Frosty!! I really like your list. I'm obsessed with those cable knit throws and finally got one (non-PB version)for Christmas last year. I looooove it.

  6. Ugh. I JUST missed the free frosty. :-/

    Loving your list though!

  7. Where did you find the Indiana t-shirt!! I LOVE it! Also agree on the UGG's. They are a necessary evil in the winter!


  8. I am one of the I LOVE My TOMS even the wedge ones are amazing. get some.

  9. Love that throw! If I was "given" $500, half of it would go towards a new coffee table. Or all of it would go towards a new dining table. Either way, it's getting "spent" on furniture haha

  10. I really love the cable knit throw. I would definitely spend the $500 on house 'stuff".

  11. I love that necklace! I need a new pair of uggs this year too, so those would be on my list for sure. The rest would probably go towards house stuff.

  12. That necklace is awesome! I love it! And the shirt, but not from Illinois, because I've never even been to Illinois.

  13. awww I missed out on the frosty. Boo. ;)

  14. Adam. I missed my chance at a frosty. I love the Mrs. Necklace. And the throw. And pretty much everything else.

  15. Apparantly darn autocorrects to Adam. Good to know.
