a little splurge

So, the last few months have been rough...real tight in the financial department. I have not spent any money on anything just for fun in like forever. So today I'm looking at my bank account online and what do you know??? That big, world wide, very well known corporation I work for decided to pay me early! *YIPEE* I went back to work about 2 weeks ago, but I figured I wouldn't get a paycheck until the end of the month. Well I don't know what happened, but for some reason they deposited some money in my account today. Can't beat that. So anyways, I've been really wanting this 7 Gypsies scrapbook stuff for like, ever. So, I bought me $40 dollars worth of stamps and patterned paper tonight. For those of you who don't know me...this is freakin' huge. Dudes, I just don't spend $40 dollars on anything unless it's baby food and toys! I know some of you scrappers are like, $40 bucks??-shoot, that's nothin'. Well, like I said I never spend money on stuff for just me. So I'm totally excited. I can't wait for the UPS guy to get here! You know what else is cool? My mom's coming down this weekend and we're going to my local scrapbook store! Youngplay Memories is like the biggest scrapbook store ever. No seriously, click on the link and you'll see pictures of just how big it is. Totally awesome, and only 5 miles from my house! So, I'm sure more, much more, money will be spent this weekend. One sucky thing about this place...they don't carry the 7 gypsies stuff..what is up with that?
Scrapbook goodies are seriously addicting...I don't even know what I'm going to do with this stuff I just bought. I just wanted it and had to have it!

I love 7 gypsies and my LSS doesn't carry it either! Luckily, Hobby Lobby has a few of their things. Phoenix has a TON of scrapbook stores, so I'm just waiting for a surge in our bank account, too. Has to be a big enough surge that the man half doesn't notice missing moolah. Nah, he's actually okay with it, but it makes me feel better if he doesn't notice. He has no idea how much scrapbook sutff adds up to. He think '$.50 for paper, buy whatever you want!' Little does he know...

Hopefully, your mom is like mine and she buys it all on your days out. My mom still thinks of me like that poor, young, newlywed. it works for me!
