@ATF That sounds like such a great weekend! Glad you found such a winner of a dress.
@PicNic Y'know, this was a weekend in which all the money was spent for a lot of people, so you're in good company.
Oooh what a fun weekend. I estimated $360 on Friday for festivities, groceries and Christmas shopping. Here's where all my money went... Friday: work party, then after party, then the after after party. I spent $29 in cash, and the cab home was $17. Saturday I spent some quality time with the sofa, before braving the crowds at the post office to return some duds to Modcloth and to buy stamps, $9.80. Groceries were $40.48. Christmas shopping part 1 involved a trip to Sephora ($71.18), TJ Maxx (43.33) and World Market ($17.69). I also bought some pizza-themed soup, $3. Parking was $7. I needed Indian food in a major way, so that was $14.50. Then I went to a swanky party with my friend; I was feeling pretty much dead by this point, so I mostly just lingered by the dessert table. FREE! Sunday my date canceled right before we were supposed to meet for brunch, so I went out for banh mi ($10) and Christmas shopping part 2. Gifts = $42.16, bought myself some running tights, $42, and then toiletries, etc, at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $48.92. I capped off the day with lightbulbs at CVS, $10.03, and a pedicure, $27 (includes tip). Total: $423.06. On the one hand, I'm speechless. On the other, I've pretty much got my Xmas shopping done, I have pants that don't fall down when I run, and I had a great time. #billfoldlivejournal4lyfe
@Caitlin with a C Oooh, have fun at Zoolights! I'm hoping to get there before the season is over. Enjoy all your parties!
@Caitlin with a C Will do! Let's make plans for January. It'll be a good excuse to get out of the house.
@Allison That sounds like the ideal Christmas/Hannukah gift. Have fun!
@PicNic mmmmm donut party! Have fun!
@Tripleoxer Good for you for moving on up! I hope you feel better tomorrow so you can go ride!!
@pterodactylish omg, so jealous! HAVE FUN!!!!
Say 'hi' to Meaghan for us, Mike. I am going to a party tonight for work; drinks already paid for, but there may be an after-party, so I'll estimate another $30 for that. Will taxicab it home, $30. The rest of the weekend is running errands, grocery-shopping and cooking, finishing decorating the tree/house and buying Christmas presents. It's gonna be pricey. I estimate $300. Total: $360.
