Money and Diamond Scones
Before I met Michael I had absolutely no problem spending money, which was a problem in itself. I spent all of my paychecks on clothes, restaurants, and bars with no concern for my growing credit card debt of despair. Things finally turned around when Michael put his foot down and forced me to start thinking before I blew money on items I didn’t need. I’m happy to say that I’ve been debt free for almost a year and it’s AweSomE! There are many other reasons why besides frugality but Michael is seriously one of the best things to ever happen to me!
Nowadays my spending habits have become the polar opposite of what they were 3 years ago – I can’t seem to bring myself to buy much of anything anymore. The only thing I don’t feel guilty paying for is good food and vacations. I’m sure you’re wondering why I’m making this out to be a bad thing, and I’ll tell you why. It’s because Michael and I can’t make a decision to buy anything fun anymore, like cameras, computers, or expensive clothes. I miss being carefree and stupid – buying new stuff is awesome and exciting. We’ve been going back and forth for months now trying to decide if we need a new Mac book, DSLR, or TV with absolutely zero progress on the actual purchasing front. Well, I’m proud to say that we finally got off our boring butts and bought something new – a big TV!
Isn’t it awesome! Ha! We’re finally getting with the times and can now watch
Vampire Diaries House Hunters on 50 glorious inches. Fun!
Alright, I digress, time to steer this post back to what’s important – the food I’ve been shoving in my face the past few days. Have you tried the Scone recipe I mentioned on Sunday yet? No? Then I feel very sorry for you because those little biscuits are like little diamonds full of magic and rainbows. Mega Yum. Besides magic diamond scones, we’ve been eating pretty normally lately, check it out:
