My friend Cat gave me $20 for my birthday. In the card, she wrote:
Things you can spend this money on:
- eating out
Things you can NOT spend this money on:
- John's cookie habit
I demand pictures or proof of whatever you get. <3 Happy Birthday!
Well, Cat - I did just that. Here are the things that I enjoyed (thoroughly) with your investment:
You bought a DELICIOUS Qdoba dinner for John and I! I had a 2-for-1 coupon that I used, so it got us dinner for two (for the price of one). Yay!

You got me a $5 ticket to the Accessories Swap!! Katy came with me, and we had an amazing time. I got a free glass of wine for getting there early enough, and my purse design won me a FREE PURSE from handbags.com! So that $5 actually got me wine, 10 awesome accessories (that I exchanged with some of my own), and a free brand-new handbag! Not too shabby.
A scoop of pralines & cream ice cream, on a beautiful Spring day.
A big ol' bag of TWIZZLERS for the long car ride up to the mountains!
And last (but not least), a delicious beer that I enjoyed while taking a break from a ridiculously fun day of snowboarding at Breckenridge.
Cat, that $20 went a lot longer than I thought it would - and it was a wonderful gift! :) Thank you for getting a broke girl like me to so many little treats. It made me very happy.
