The Week of Splurging. Oooh, the Splurging...

Do you ever cry into your pillow at night about lost coupons? Or clench fists, and weep loud and long over the deals you missed?
... no?  Oh. 

 ...yeah... me either. *ahem*

But, I did decide (as I drooled over the many coupons that matched flyers...) that I would celebrate our 2 months of sticking with the challenge, by BUYING STUFF!!!! Woo!! 

I'm considering finding a shop-a-holics group to join.  (but it would probably just interfere with shopping time so...)

Back on point. 

Here's all the 'YES' I said to myself last week.

Sorry it's so fuzzy. ... must have been tired from all the shopping ;)
Uh-oh... I bought chips. Bad idea. 
They're already eaten. 
All of them :( 
...I told you I lost weight, right? ... yeah. Better for me NOT to have snacks in the house...

When I showed hubby all the finds, and explained that I was celebrating, he laughed.
"You celebrate after 6 months, not two" he chuckled at me. 

I suppose he has a point... 

But I'm not sorry.

Well... maybe a little... 

No. No I'm not. 

...even though I know I have a whole other week to confess about. 
Oooh, the splurging...
