"Love talked about can be easily pushed aside, but love demonstrated is irresistable"-W Stanley Mooneyham

Remember my post from yesterday where I told you under the caption of the Camera of how I told Blake to save every penny he ever wanted to spend on me until he had enought to buy me that camera?? And I told you it might be hard because he loved giving surprises??? Well...this is what I was talking about...

Driving down the road to go play at the park with the dogs yesterday, Blake looked at me and said, "I'm going to give you something. I want you to take $40 from the money I made at the Masters and go buy whatever you want."

NOW...before I go any further, let me just preface this by saying 11 months ago I would have looked at him adoringly, said thank you, and thought to myself, "wow, $40...I guess that might buy me a couple of shirts at Target, or one on sale at J Crew, but I hope he knows I like nice things, and nice things can sometimes cost more than $40." However now that I'm married, live in reality and am on a BUDGET, I looked at him over-adoringly, said thank you, and thought to myself, "YESSSSSSSSS!!!! $40!!!!!!! I'm going to get my book and a frappacino and a magazine and that chord I need for my camera and some gum and maybe I'll even have enough left over for some french fries-it's the weekend, right?!"

You should have seen the things that raced through my head at the thought of that much money.

So here's what I'll be spending my $40 on this weekend...

The NEW (it came out May 11th) Emily Giffen book, Heart of the Matter. Author of Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Baby Proof and Love the One You're With, I read through all four in a matter of days...and don't be impressed...I could count the number of books I've read in my lifetime on two hands

A Starbuck's Mocha Frappacino...you can't have a girl's day wrapped up in a good book or magazine without one of these! (Minus the whip cream and things on top...I don't like those)

A copy of Vogue. So once upon a time in my life I lived in New York, had an incredible internship and ate up every second of the fashion world. I wouldn't trade where I am now for anything so I'm ok just flipping through and dreaming about the clothes in here now!

Besides...I ran across this (Jan '09 issue) and thought "Hmm...now this is just dumb. Who would/could/should EVER wear this?!!" Come on people...

Last, but certainly not least (especially since I have a new blog that needs pictures on it!) I will be buying a USB chord to upload my pictures on to my laptop so that I can keep all of you updated with our day to day life.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend...I'll update you with ours along the way! Starting with a date night tonight to Mellow Mushroom for our usual :)
