On Selfishness

On Selfishness

Header-01On Thursday, I found a purse that I wanted.  It was nothing like this, or this though.  It was much bigger that those two wants.  In fact, the want was overwhelming.

I decided to think about this though. It, again, was a large sum of money.  I ran it by my mom, and by Mike.  Both said it was an Erica purse.

But in the end, Mike and I run the finances together, and he said no.  I huffed, but understood, took a nap in my car on my lunch break, and returned to a message from Mike.

He said something like, “Next month, when we get married, we both lose some of our selfishness.  And next year, when the babies happen, we lose even more of our ability to do things for ourselves.  So I think you should have the purse.  Because, really, you deserve it.”

He gives me new reasons every day for marrying him. 🙂

I Have a Buying Problem

It’s true.  I’m a saver–uber thrifty even.  I don’t have cable.  I don’t turn on the heat in my house.  I’ve been pouring straight water on my cereal (which I need to buy more of because I’m down to three or four corn flakes).

But my gas bill this month was only $22.  And my electric?  $14.  Which is how I am justifying my following actions:

I bought this purse for an obnoxious amount of money:

Then, I reserved a hotel room in Cincinnati for 11.11.11.

And I got this dress to wear to the event.

I need to stop.  But I justify it because I’m a cheap ass all the time.  Ugh.

In other news, I’m so happy with all of it!
