On Pretty Sure I Deserve A "Wife Bonus"

I hate the phrase "push present," but I kind of think jewelry commemorating a child's birth is sweet? My dad gave my mom necklaces, and she wears the one he gave her for my birth at special events (like my graduation, or a birthday dinner when I was younger) (and the same for my sibling). It's nice!

On The Cost of Giving Up Grocery Shopping

I solved my grocery shopping dilemma by getting a fiancé. I make the list, he goes to the store... it's the dream. He hates making lists, I hate grocery stores, everybody wins!

On The Cost of Things: Taking Care of LadyBusiness

@aetataureate No, not at all!!! I am totally secure in my old-spice-loving ways. Only one person has ever commented on it... which is rude, anyway, so IDGAF. My fiancé found it a bit off-putting when we first got together but he's used to it now!

@aetataureate If it's weird to buy men's deodorant then I'm weird! It smells better.

On The Cost of Things: Taking Care of LadyBusiness

I feel that. I recently looked at all the lipsticks in my cabinet (and I don't buy drugstore lipstick so let's say an average price of $25) and nearly wept at the investment represented there.

On I Spent $400 On A Man's Watch -- And I Feel Great About It

@Lexie I did that! Two thumbs up. (Except at the beginning of the engagement when he would pout that no one wanted to see his watch like they did my ring.)

On It's Engagement Season! Does Your Ring Come At A Heinous Cost?

I have a lab-created diamond!! I love it! It was cheaper, though not actually *cheap*, sadly.
