Hobby Lobby is probably one of the most dangerous places on earth.  Especially during the Holidays.  I could literally spend every penny I have in there and not think twice about it.  Libbi and I made a quick trip to Hob Lob yesterday to exchange a few things (of course, "quick trip to Hob Lob" is sort of an oxymoron since I can NEVER go there without browsing up and down every. single. aisle.)  

I have to confess that the rows and rows of Christmas decorations literally speak to me.  There are few things that I love more in this world than Christmas decorations.  Walking up and down the aisles of ornaments, pre-lit trees, and holiday knick-knacks is almost a religious experience. Between my collective, "awww's" and Libbi's constant "ho ho ho's" I'm sure the other customers thought we must not get out of the house very often. :)

We walked up and down the aisles at least a handful of times.  Libbi admired all the "balls" while I imagined how those ornaments would look adorning our tree(s).  Libbi "ho ho ho'd" at each and every Santa we saw while I imagined how that particular Santa would be treated and inadvertently deconstructed if he happened to come home with us.  I envisioned gloriously themed holiday rooms in our home while Libbi tried her best to adorn herself from top to bottom grasping at everything within her reach.  I was quickly brought back to reality when Libbi pulled an entire display of ribbon spools off the shelf.  I thanked God they weren't breakable as they rolled in every possible direction across the floor.

After picking up yards and yards of ribbon (and thanking the employees that helped us - yes, employeeS) we made our exchanges and took one last look at the splendor that is Hobby Lobby.  I gathered my purchases (all $1.04 of them...I told y'all I could spend every last penny there - it just so happens I don't have very many "pennies" haha!) I took one last look at the splendor of Hobby Lobby, and went home to put up a Christmas tree.
Hobby Lobby is a dangerous place.
