Just in case you were wondering...

What's weird: I don't know if it's because I'm around the generation of people who lived through the 60s, 70s, and 80s, but what is with the mullet? How was it ever attractive? Its like your hair blew up in a bush in the back and you just can't mow it down. I just don't get it.

My philosophies: Bronson calls me complex and controversial. I talk about how I want to buy a house and renovate it but also require a hefty amount of the shopping budget each month to buy what I please. An *Emily to Earth* moment happens and I remember how much down payments are. Gasp. I lose my breath, So we stood in the ice-cream isle. My heart is aching because they didn't have Farr's Cookies and Cream ice cream. To console my grief (literally and figuratively and symbolically and emotionally), I reached for the Tillamook ice-cream, which was the same price, but half the quantity. Bronson quickly shut the freezer door and said "No way!" I almost cried, "but this is why I work full-time: to buy expensive delicious ice-cream." Bronson explains that I can't buy expensive ice-cream if I want to buy a house someday. So let it be known I will not enjoy delicious expensive ice-cream until we buy a house.

Even if that is the weirdest thing -- I just kinda feel like there are Benjamin's landing in my wallet. And that's exactly what it might take to get me through years of saving mula.

What rocks right now: Me getting good deals. Luck found me these past couple of days. We got a buy one get one free meal at Noodles and Company. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to order, but since we had a coupon, I figure, no big deal if I try something new and don't like it. I would normally order the Alfredo (duh, pasta and white sauce - yum). But that would've ruined any chance of a normal calorie count day, so I went for the lesser, Tuscan Fresca Pasta. When they brought out our order, they placed the Alfredo in front of me. I quickly wondered if the cashier had read my mind instead of heard what I said, but I told them I hadn't ordered it, but would be happy to eat it. They apologized and still brought out the original meal I ordered -- but to go. So BAM. It was a buy one get 2 free. And I still got to eat the yummy alfredo, so that just might be the real winner of all.

And deal number 2 -- I found a pair of pants I've been eyeing for months from Old Navy. I found 2 pairs of jeans for $28.00. And these pants I *need* -- as it is almost fall and I have...legs.  So with some online promo codes, and a $30.00 gift card, I got both pairs for $7.50 each!

Cutest on the cuteness factor: This little thing. Dying.

If I won the lottery I'd buy: These in every color

What is sounding beautiful: The King Singers. Need I say more.

  1. Good thing Bronson is there at the store to close the freezer door. So hard to save! But so good of you two for doing so. Way to go on getting those other deals! Score!
