Whenever I'm feeling a bit blah, I use shop therapy. Before you groan or try to chide me for being stereotypical, let me say I do not have credit cards and don't get down with severely depleted bank accounts so I never spend money I can't afford. I also have strict rules for what I can buy based on what Oprah once said, "Doubt means don't until you know." Word Oprah. That means if I kind of like something in the store but I have to tilt my head in several directions before the light hits it right, that means I need to kindly return said object to the shelf/rack. Not for me. Because if I don't like it in the store, I'll hate it at home and have to return it and what a pain that is!!
So! Today I'm going to buy some more stuff for the bride. Look, it pays to be my first friend getting married. I'm going a bit crazy. I already bought stuff off of both of her registries. Plus I'm staying with her, per her request, and I just read this article in Allure this month. (Sidenote: There are lots of mags at the gym so I get to read a bunch of different ones while on the bike or walking around the track (yes I'm that girl walking on the track reading). I've learned you have to read them at once because otherwise they'll be gone by the time you get back. I wouldn't have read half of these magazines w/o Bally's so shout out I guess.) It said if you're a house guest, you're saving on a hotel so you can afford to shower the host with gifts. Good tip. You'll always be welcome. My mom taught me I should bring something with me anyway so when I went to Wynel's for Thanksgiving, I got her a Nine West gift card. Who doesn't love that, right AI?
One of my fave co-workers is preggers. Her shower is the same weekend as the wedding so unfortunately I can't go but I'm going to Target to hit up her registry and knock a few things off of it. Can't wait. My old roomie's due in January and already registered. Hilarious. Girl after my own heart. I'm right with ya girl! I'll start registering before I plan a thing. I had to practically threaten the current bride on multiple occasions. Get on it! I wanna spend money I can't possibly regret!!
Countdown: 6 days to VA!
