1. Expensive cookies.
Why splurge when Target and Wal Mart sell these babies for like a quarter?! They’re magic and they melt in your mouth. And they’re also probably solidified posinous sugar, but I don’t care. They’re wonderful.
On another note, I don’t know what I did to make Friday mad, but it’s trying super hard to piss me off.
It started around 3 a.m. when Har jumped off the bed and started to whimper at the door. Fewer things make me fly out of bed faster than when Harlow suddenly wakes up in the middle of the night. He’s a good sleeper, so if he gets out of bed before me I know 1 of 2 things are about to happen. And neither are very pretty.
Don’t worry, he got outside in time and all was fine. I just need to cut back on the quinoa I’ve been giving him. And that’s all I’ll say about that.
And then this morning my Keurig died. And it didn’t just pass silently, either. It made a real fuss, exploding wet mushy coffee everywhere.
And because I can’t let things go, I tried running it two more times just to make sure it was broken. Thus it exploded two more times.
Truthfully, I’m happy to get rid of it. Kcups are killing the earth and I’ve been a willing participant. So be gone, devil machine. I’ve already ordered a $15 coffee maker off amazon and I’m pretty pumped about it.
After the Keurig fiasco I was getting dressed and my bra strap broke. And not just any bra strap, my favorite bra strap. However like the Keurig, I know it’s probably for the best. It was a pretty gross bra I got at Target for like a dollar. For some reason the cheap ones always end up being my favorites.
I’ll know I’ve made it in life when I treat myself to nice undergarments.
Which brings me back to my original post idea which I forgot about.
Things I won’t spend money on:
2. Spa Days.
I’ve never had one. What does this even mean? A massage? A facial? A foot bath where fish eat the dead skin off my feet? It all sounds wonderful but it’s just too novelty for me. I’ve never even had a facial. Is that weird? Probably.
3. Fancy coffee.
I refuse to pay $9 to drink a latte that looks like the Mona Lisa. I can appreciate the artistic talent, but I won’t pay for it. Or drink it.
4. Nice pillows.
I want them. Damn it, I want them. But every time I go to order new ones I buckle and get the cheap ones. I think when Chris and I register we might put some fancy pillows on the list.
5. Fancy pumps.
No thanks. It’s probably because I don’t wear high heels often – also is that phrase super weird to anyone else? I feel like an 80s working woman when I say “high heel.” Anyway, I won’t spend over $75 for a pump, and even that’s a stretch.
6. Good towels.
Why? Because no matter how hard I try to keep them nice they always end up with weird bleach looking stains on them. And I don’t use bleach! Why is this a thing? Does anyone know what I’m talking about or how to solve this problem?
Anyway, enough griping. Let’s get the weekend started.
Things I will spend money on: ridiculous graphic t-shirts that make me happy. As the t-shirt says, it’s a Netflix and couch kind of night, spent in pj shorts and slippers all weekend long.
No Pants Till Monday. Who’s with me?
PS, because I’m in a cozy weekend kinda mood, take $5 off the shirts you see using the code: talkherbietome_cozy at checkout. COZY AF shirts and sweatshirt apply as well.
Stay cozy, everyone.
