Be Brave, You Deserve It

I've heard a thousand times before from men, that the women in their lives never seem to be specific enought when it comes to answering the same questions:

What do you want for your birthday?
What do you want for Christmas?
What do you want for Mother's Day?

There are plenty of times I see something I would like, but the word "thrifty" is way to nice for me. I am not just thrifty, I'm CHEAP (with a little OCD thrown in!) And I'm really not ashamed to admit that! I hate hate hate paying full price for anything. I really try to plan and budget to stretch our money because we are such a large family.

But this year, I've decided out of necessity, I'm going to be very specific about what I want for Mother's Day. If you've read my blog, you know that I watched someone bust my car window and steal my makeup bag a couple of weeks ago. Well, I guess I'm not like most women, because while makeup is super important to me, I don't keep drawers and drawers full of makeup in my bathroom or vanity. Everything I use on a daily basis was in that kit. So I've gone almost 2 weeks without makeup, and while it's by no means the end of the world, it has definitely impacted me! When I say everything was in that bag, I mean EVERYTHING! I haven't even had eye cream, moisturizer or balm for my lips!!! (I only had everything in there b/c I had a dr. appt. that morning and was headed straight to work)

I've stipulated the rest of this blog for my family because I know they read, but I encourage you:

THIS IS OUR DAY! WE GAVE BIRTH TO THESE CHILDREN AND WE PICK UP AFTER THESE MEN!! LET THEM TAKE ONE DAY TO DO EVERYTHING WE ASK, AND GIVE US SPECIFICALLY WHAT WE WANT!

**Disclaimer** To my husband...I am FULLY aware of how much you do in the house. I NEVER meant you in the above statement!** (well, I want gifts, don't I?)


I've posted pictures to let you know what I want and why I want it. Feel free to print this page out when you take the kids to buy my gift! (Ofcourse ALL this would be nice, but I'd never expect that! Just giving you a couple of choices....)

Walmart because ummm, hello? We live in the south and doesn't everybody buy their makeup from Walmart? Seriously, you know how long I worked in salons. Paying $50 for a product b/c it comes from a mall or salon, vs. paying $9.99 for a product from the same parent company is stupid to me. Poor women have been brainwashed by their stylist who's been brainwashed!

Yummy Yummy, need I say more? Then I could have lunch with Misty and Sammy when they get Sekisui!!



Everybody loves Target, right?


You know their salads are my favorite meal EVER!

I love the to put the foam dispensers by the kitchen and bathroom sink...

This one is hilarious!! Can you believe I found a gift card from Goodwill!!!! Ooohhh, I'm such an addict!!!
