@raw money my wallet was stolen outta my handbag, and also recovered in the bathroom of a bar!
My tires and wheels were stolen off my car in college. They weren't fancy. I came out to drive to work one day and the car was sitting up on cinder blocks.
@HelloTheFuture Because Jon Snow knows nothing? Because he pales in comparison to Morticia?
Go as Morticia Addams next year, reuse the wig!
@RiffRandell "did a ton of stuff around the barn, rode my horse" You are continuing to live the dream.
@EmilyAnomaly 1. I can't wait to also make this risotto. 2. I got a lab bill for exactly $9.16 this weekend, too!
I estimated $250 for a pretty packed weekend. Happy hour was no go on Friday, so I did my grocery shopping ($59) and caught up on 'Scandal' and 'How to Get Away with Murder.' Saturday I did laundry, took a long walk with the dog, started a new book (all free) and also took the dog to one of those self-wash places, $10, for the only money spent that day. Sunday I met a pal for brunch. I bought, in celebration of her birthday, 42.20. Then it was off to hair salon. Color + tips came out to $104. I enjoyed one of my thrice annual trips to Starbucks ($4.35) and then headed to TJ Maxx to pick up some socks and bathroom storage containers ($21.12) and worth every penny, as I've needed better make up storage in my bathroom for oh, a year. Total: $198.47 Actually under my estimate for once!
This really took a turn, Nicole. Brava. It was unexpected. (I second all the above sandwich improvement tips. Never, ever underestimate the benefit of butter the bread)
@grandma_nancy Are you in DC? Smithsonian museums are very good cost-wise, for dates (free!) and certain museums are even quite romantic (the Portrait Gallery, the gorgeous courtyard in the Sackler-Freer Gallery)...
