Family Craft Day


Today was "Family Craft Day" at Muff's preschool. Baby Ellie stayed with Nana and I spent some quality time alone until it was time for the parents to arrive at the preschool.

I went to H.obby Lobby to look at a few things on my wish list. Of course, the apothecary jar of my dreams was 50% off this week. I told Big Daddy that I would not be spending anymore money for a while, so I refrained from buying it. I pretended to hear the jingling of money dropping into the savings account, but I could only hear the apothecary jar calling my name.

I left there and went to the mall for a little shoe shopping. Even though it's a small (crappy) mall, I found no less than five pairs of boots (some 50% off!!) that I wanted and could see myself wearing to church this Sunday with a black skirt and red top. (sigh)

I love saving money...love it. I love having a nest egg. I love having security. And that is what I keep telling myself. It's just no fun being good.


The Muffin's only visit with Santa so far this season.

I like having a nest egg too but always being good is hard and often not fun. Maybe I'll get back to Hobby Lobby and actually buy my apothecary jars one day.

I LOVE Hobby Lobby! I had to refrain last time I was there as well. I told husby he could get me a giftcard to that store and I'd be giddy as a school girl!
