Shopping soothes my soul

Hi everyone! So today started off with a bang when I woke up at 7:00 am (an ungodly hour if you ask me!!) and for some reason I couldn't go back to sleep!! If anyone knows me you know i hate getting up early!! Its all about sleeping So shortly after I woke up I got a call from my hubby :) which made my day and motivated me to get up and finally finish my long to do list of chores and errands...(I am also a procrastinator at!) so i did three loads of laundry, cleaned, dusted and vacuumed my room, showered, and went grocery shopping!! I feel so accomplished!! Not to mention I got all our bills paid and now I even have time to do a little early b-day shopping (as my present from my hubby!) and I'm really hoping I can find a cute dress to wear next Saturday. I haven't been shopping for clothes in ages (and mind you I'm a shopoholic:clothes, jewelry, makeup, purses, shoes...all these things fall under my must have shopping fix!) So I am really excited! :) But I won't be spending too much as we are on a budget and trying to save for our new furniture and have enough money for the move to Virginia. I am actually really proud of myself and can say I have been super thrifty this whole deployment and haven't spent a dime other than on bills, food, or gas (which for me is a big deal cause I've never been able to save a penny! lol) So hopefully I can find the perfect dress for my bday dinner next Saturday...which I still need to figure out when and where were eating. I will admit I'm a little bummed that my hubby won't be here to celebrate with me for the first time in the past three years. :( It sucks but I'm trying to stay positive and tell myself that it will be ok and I'll still have a pretty good day. Hopefully I'm right! Anyways I'm off now to hit the shops for the perfect birthday dress!! hope you all have a great day!! :)

  5. i must say, for both of us today was very productive and i am very proud of the two of us. and we didn't even require naps. lol. therefore, our dinner out was justified! =)) this will probably be the last time i have a day out like that without any kids for a long time, so i'm glad it was fun for both of us. and i didn't even get swollen till after dinner!! yaaaay!! =))
