A Spendy Kind of Day

It has been a bit of a spendy day today.  I knew it was coming though and waited until after I got paid yesterday.  It started off with meeting Hubs for dinner after work.  I knew I was going to be shopping this evening, so we decided to meet in town at Jason’s Deli.  I was really craving a big salad, so I got the salad bar, and it was amazing!
After dinner my first stop was Petco.  Both dogs were about out of food.  It is rare that I have to buy both foods at the same time, so it was quite expensive.  I also bought a little toy for a lady who is leaving work and just got a puppy (we are filling a bag with goodies for her), and I got a tag silencer for Bandit because he is noisy.  All of that ended up being over $100.  Yikes!  About half of that was just for Bandit’s special food.  Rose is a cheap eater, so it’s not too bad for her food.
After that I can’t say where I went!  I got to go shopping for my secret sister!  For those of you who don’t know what that is, let me explain.  Carla at My Half Dozen Daily is hosting a secret sister swap.  I signed up to participate and finally got my shopping done.  I think I got some great stuff and kept on budget!  I actually am regifting one item.  I received some sweet goodies from a student last week.  I am not a fan of the goodies, but they are some of my secret sister’s favorites.  Perfect!  Also there is a store nearby that is going out of business, so they have everything 80% off.  I got a couple things from there for next to nothing.  Perfect!
Now I just have to get it in the mail tomorrow.  I love giving gifts, so I am super excited for my secret sister to get her present!  


In case you lost count… 3.5 days of school (with kids) left!
