@Meaghano I think it's really interesting that these "grooming" experiences are so deeply equated with bonding in our culture. Maybe it all goes back to monkeys eating insects off each other...
Confession: I am one of those people who has never been to a spa because I'm weird about strangers touching me. My boyfriend's friend asked me to go for manis/pedis (which I have also never done), and I was FREAKING OUT about confessing my weirdness to some one I'm still getting to know! Thankfully I was at a dog show so I had a "normal" excuse.
I accidentally fed my horse a Honeycrisp. He typically gets "reject" apples from local cider mills. I'm sure it was the best apple of his life.
@thegirlieshow My father read this article in the WSJ: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303277704579349283584121344 He then declared that avocados "are the new blood diamonds" (direct quote) and banned them from my parents' household.
Pennsylvania is so haunted because we have Gettysburg. Duh.
But wait: What is (unofficial) Billfold mascot Mr. Biscuit doing for Thanksgiving?
My friend's little brother gives everyone an ice cream scoop as a wedding present, regardless of whether or not it's on their registry. His line of thinking is that people are usually happy and celebrating when they eat ice cream, and he wants to be a part of these happy moments and milestones. It's inexpensive and such a sweet idea!
@Equestrienne Although I guess May was a little more costly due to a $250 speeding ticket from the lovely state of New York...
I own a car, which is paid off (best feeling EVER!). I spend $150-$200/month on fuel, insurance, and maintenance.
I'm a diligent couponer and spend $50-$60/week for 2 adults and 1 cat. I know it's weird that I included the cat, but he eats grain-free raw food and it's pretty expensive. I did not include the horse because he eats more/better than all of us. Combined.
