My $$$

Last week my mom sent me this beautiful card with a sweet message written inside. As I read it I started to cry, it was just that sweet! I needed to hear those words at that moment. My mom also put $100 in the card too with a message that I use the money to buy something nice for myself. Well did I...NO! I bought the boys nerf goggles and bullets for being good Saturday.

I also picked up a few new t-shirts for them for school. The rest of the money was used to buy Justin's car a new battery. Why is it so hard to buy myself something? I feel so guilty buying myself make-up even. I can't even bring myself to spend the whole $7 it takes to get my eyebrows done. I used to never be like this. My favorite thing was to shop. I loved taking pride in what I looked like. Don't get me wrong I still won't leave the house without make-up on, but I'll put on a t-shirt and my old (& only) pair of jeans. I guess it's just the life of being a MOM! Hope y'all are having a happy Tuesday!!!


  1. I totally agree with you I can never spend money on me without guilt...however this past Saturday as I looked in the mirror and seen that I was in the process of having one eyebrow I gave up and went and spent the 7 bucks....lol. I will not divulge how long it had been since I last visited my girl but I will say that it took her a minute to recognize me...haha

  2. That is so nice of your mom! Sometimes some mama love really helps. :)

    I am the same way with stuff for myself! When there are so many other things we need or that the money could be used for, my stuff doesn't seem important.

    BUT we all still deserve something for ourselves. So I think you should get yourself at least something! :)

  3. Omg. I'm always trying to get you to buy yourself something. One day I will darnit!! lol

  4. Awww. What an awesome mom you have!!!! That is just so cool. And what a sweetie you are too. I have a hard time spending money on myself too, but I think you deserve to sneak in a little something for yourself!

  5. What a great Mom and yes, I totally can't make myself buy something for me, it's usually something for the boys or my husband...guess its the "Mom" in us?! those nerf guns DO look fun though!

  6. That was very nice of your mom.
    I can relate to what you're saying. I hardly ever buy things for myself. It's always for the kids!
