So I overheard a conversation the other day where some women were talking about what they buy from Zulily. (You know who you are sweet people with cute dresses and a new fur vest). I even got to see the two, really cute dresses that came in the mail that very day. We all oohed and ahhhed especially after we heard what she paid. They were so cute and so inexpensive that I sat there thinking: “Wow. I should look a little closer at the emails I get every day from Zulily because I really like cute dresses and I like a bargain even more!” And aren’t these the cutest t-shirts ever.
And then I remembered I had spent my mad money/Christmas money/I-can-buy-whatever-I-want-with-it money on. . .
Wait for it.
All $140 of those crisp twenty-dollar bills.
I. am. a nerd.
I love books.
I do not love fiction. Can you tell?
I like some fiction, sometimes. Like once every two years. Maybe.
So this is my 2015 Reading List. Some of it, anyway. I have a few books on my Kindle app and a few others that haven’t shipped yet so I have something to look forward to when the FEDEX truck is in my neighborhood!
And finally, here’s my confession. I ate three Cadbury Creme eggs. At one time. Well, not ALL three at one time—but one right after the other. Maddie went to the store and bought them for me as a surprise. I must’ve been sad and grumpy. She knows how to cheer me up. The smart, health-conscious, self-disciplined woman in my head said, “You should eat just one now and save the others for later.” Blah. Blah. Blah. Whatever. They were delicious. All three of them.
Now it’s your turn to confess.
Leave a comment and tell me:
1. How do you spend mad money A.K.A “a sum of money, often relatively small in amount, kept in reserve to use for impulsive, frivolous purposes”?
2. What book(s) are you reading?
3. Cadbury Creme Eggs. Yes or No?
