it comes with the territory. like a third nature. i really can't help it.
(gasp! i know...)
post-college: sadly, this is where my addiction takes a drastic turn for the worse (or for the better, depending on how you look at it). i had no job. a college degree with only the loan payments to prove it. and i had also moved approximately 925 miles away from my closest wad of cash.
i was forced to make a very serious choice: rice and peanut butter (in another word, supper) or a darling new pair of peep-toe kitten heels.
marriage: (this is where light, fluffy and happy music can play) while i do have some money to spend on shopping, mostly i forget about it. (GASP) i know, right? maybe it's because i'm lazy and more picky now. (i like to think of it as fine-tuning my style) or maybe because my better half (who replaced former shopping pals) would rather spend 5 hours fishing in the bay or shopping for fishing gear. either way, my closet hasn't been upgraded in quite a while. (except for when i caved at target last week and bought an adorable tunic to keep my leggings company)
Are you still with me here?
