Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Last year for Christmas my parents almost got me this fab sunburst mirror but they were not 100% sure I would like it (duh) and ended up getting me another cool piece instead. Later they showed me a photo of the mirror and I fell in love with it. After they saw how much I loved it they felt bad they didn't get it - but I told them it was okay and that I was going to try to go back and get it.

I've been watching this mirror for almost a year now. I would go by the store and see if they still had it and it's always been there. Last week I went by and was looking around and had the mirror on my mind as well and headed over to the area it had been hanging all this time and it was not there! I was like "Oh no!! They finally sold it!"

I really hated it but knew after all that time someone would by it. As I was leaving the store I was walking along and what did I see?? The mirror!!! It was hanging in a different area! I was like YES!! I knew that I had to get it. I went home and decided I was going to come back this week (assuming it would still be there.) So today I went up there to make my purchase and the sales lady saw me as I walked through the door and said I looked like I was on a mission. I told her what I was there for and how my parents almost got it for me last year and she said she remembered because she was the one who helped them. She said they had the hardest time deciding and that she was so glad that it was still there and that I was finally getting it! Talk about meant to be!!

What makes this story even better is that she also told me that the mirror was now 50% OFF & all I could say was: SOLD!!!!

I'm so excited and I like I said . . . talk about meant to be! After almost a year this mirror was STILL there! It's going in my dining room on a wall that needs something large like this! I can't wait to pick it up tomorrow!!!! I will post pics once we hang it!!
