Yeah, they’re definitely not necessary. No real reason to start getting them, especially if you already overspend.January 11, 2019 at 1:18 pm #815408
Ooh, I didn’t realize you could ask Benefit for just a tweeze. I need to do that.January 11, 2019 at 1:21 pm #815409
Yeah or just a clean-up, for a lot less.January 11, 2019 at 1:26 pm #815410
Haha no I appreciate it. I for the most part don’t think I overspend, but shamefully I also don’t really keep track of where I’m spending and so I don’t spend money happily if you get what I mean.January 11, 2019 at 1:29 pm #815411
Has anyone tried any of the eyelash services at Benefit? I’ve been debating trying the lash lift/tint but don’t know if it’s worth it.January 11, 2019 at 1:33 pm #815413
Good to know! I could just use a good, professional tweeze.January 11, 2019 at 1:36 pm #815417
@hfantods A lot of people have their unnecessary expenses. If you feel like manicures are something that will make you feel more put together and confident without blowing your budget or derailing your savings, go for it! I already have things I spend money on that I like but that aren’t *necessities* so manicures, for me, are an easy thing for me to say, nah, not worth it.January 11, 2019 at 2:43 pm #815425
Great pictures Hizzy!
@MG – I love Arris Bistro! I have their chicken cobb salad at least once a week. Hope you enjoyed your stop in Mid Mo.
MofV and I have made it one week lol. No fights or disagreements! It’s weird having him around all the time but it’s nice. Snowmageddon is happening right now and we plan on hibernating all weekend. Anyone else getting hit with snow right now?January 11, 2019 at 3:20 pm #815427
We’re supposed to get snow, but I don’t think it’s supposed to be as bad as it will be a little further south. If we’re expecting Snowmageddon…I am very unprepared. Ha! I have few plans this weekend, and I’m honestly pretty glad. I’m *still* trying to kick my cold and hope that a couple more days of laying low and sleeping as much as I want will do the trick.January 11, 2019 at 4:07 pm #815434
We are about to get snow. You’d think a blizzard was coming the way people are trashing through the grocery stores. It was a bit chaotic out. We will be hibernating. Woohoo.
I think coffee is having a bad effect with my new medicine. I don’t drink a lot but I’m going to go without this weekend and see if t helps. Pray for us all. I don’t think this will be easy.January 11, 2019 at 6:12 pm #815443
It doesn’t look like it’s expected to snow in Seattle any time in the near future, but I’ve heard Virginia is supposed to be hit this weekend.January 11, 2019 at 6:27 pm #815445
@jd – as part of the preop investigation stuff my doctor made me give up coffee. It was BRUTAL. I used to have a pot/pot and a half daily habit. My doctor (she’s a smartass and I adore her) just looked at me dryly when I fessed up and said, “no that much caffeine and acid is not going to do you or that tumor any favors”. I had a brutal 6 weeks detox, and now I drink 2-3 cups a week, because I never want to go through withdrawal like that again.
@veritek – so exciting to see how well you guys are settling in. I’m really happy for you 🙂
My update – So me and the AG haven’t had the “where are we” talk yet re: meeting each other’s people, mainly because he’s been incredibly busy. He’s got a hard work deadline coming up here in 2 weeks and is busy making up the time he took to have a 5 day vacation with me. He’s been at work till 900pm ish most nights. So when we do get to spend time together, I want for him to relax. I understand the pressures of his work gig and don’t really want to steal focus from the work he does.
I’ve also noticed that most of his people are spread out over the world, so meeting them will be hard. I know he’s told his kids about me, which is significant. So right now I’m just taking a deep breath and waiting till things settle down a bit before I broach the subject.
