It's like that liposuction thing where the fat just moves somewhere else

Now that I'm consciously not shopping for clothes or personal care items- I've been spending a lot of money in other areas so it hasn't really been a frugal move. The money leaks out in other areas.
I've splurged on a pedicure, a eyebrow wax (my first one- ouch!), expensive food (Tastefully Simple), exercise class, and now a lipstick mold kit for remaking old lipsticks into new. In a few weeks I have an appointment for the good hair stylist for a cut and highlight. Part of it is me coming out of a bit of a grief coma and trying to re-make my life. I just haven't felt good about myself for awhile and now I'm starting to perk up a bit. I want and deserve a clean house, good food, and healthy body.
I want a happy life. And right now I feel pretty content.
I have a date with a friend to see Eclipse tonight while my Hubby sits on our kids. I have the best husband in the world!

I have to log my weight watchers points and get to picking up the house for tonight.
I'm doing really good at WW and haven't used all of my points. I've been eating a lot more fruits and vegetables and my energy level is pretty high. I don't feel deprived at all. Life is good.
I did spend $4 on tube socks for the kids today. I forgot about putting socks on them for the playdate at a McDonald's playland today so I picked up a pack while I was grocery shopping. McDonalds sells $1 socks for the play land but they are kind of junky.

You want to buy hanky pankys because of Laundry Hurts my Feelings, don't you?

Because I do too.

I understand the need to make yourself feel better. I'm like, the bottom of the barrel when it comes to being high maintenance, but what does make me feel good is a hair cut. That is something I learned makes me the happiest about my appearance, so I've been sure to keep up on that.

Rhonda, the lipstick kit was a spur of the moment decision. I have so many unused lipsticks because I don't like the color. I figured it might give me a chance to use up the things I already have. I plan on blogging about it after I use it. But, yeah, it wasn't my best purchase decision.

Yes, Laundry Hurts My Feelings made me want Hanky Pankies. I figure after I lose a few pounds and go a few months without buying a lot of clothes, I can afford really expensive undies. Hubby's all for it too. ;)

Getting your brows waxed is heaven! I love it, I go back every 6 weeks. I was on WW and lost 40 pounds. Make sure you eat all your points, trust me!
