I caved!!!

I've spent nothing on myself in the past month or so and have bought school stuff instead. No pretties for me:( Work has me stressed, the way I'm getting paid this month has me stressed (basically, they are a paycheck behind. I won't see that "extra" paycheck til the day I quit), and I had to call to cut back to one shift at my second job. I have to do ALL of this and save for our wedding that's in a little over a year and JL. So, now, you can see why I'm stressed. And, it's a good thing that I could not log on to the Lilly sale this morning. Many of the things I wanted were sold out; however, they still had "the one". I have been lusting after this dress ever since it came through my email a few months ago, but over $200, no bueno, no way. I was even tempted when I found a Lilly store that had it for $116. I refused. I told myself no. And, I'm glad I waited. I decided that it was okay to by myself something today. Other than the Wicked tickets I'm getting, that will be it for awhile. Plus, since LC wants to push back our engagement photos to the Spring, I think it might be the perfect dress for those:)
Back to getting crap together for school tomorrow, and back to my shopping hiatus. Hey, I got this dress for $76.00 including shipping. I DESERVE IT!!! Okay, maybe, I went a little too far with that, but darnit, I deserve a pretty every once in a while. Haha.

Sending smiles your way, hoping things at work are nicer,

love it girl! so glad you bought something nice.... sometimes you just need a little greenback therapy as my granna calls it!

Very few things in life stress me out as much as weird paychecks... and now that I'm living on student loans, the idea that all the money I have now is all the money I'll have until the end of January, is also a little freaky!

I love that dress! If you are going to "cave" I think that dress is worth it! :) With a baby coming in 5 weeks, the hubby would not let me look at the lilly sale. He said I will have to wait until next year :( But I guess the money I saved will buy a whole lot of diapers. Hope your week of school is going well!
