- It’s been a movie week! I loved Iron Man 3!!! LOVED IT! The Great Gatsby was pretty although I still hate the story itself. Vapid women are not worth the effort, people! If you are going to get all hot and bothered, at least make sure the object of your affection is worth it! Maybe someone that’ll be as much fun to be old together with as young together with. I guess I just wish everyone had better taste when finding a mate…so frustrating!
- Remember to sign up for my newsletter (in the right sidebar) —-> to be able to enter the separate giveaway that I host for subscribers only every month! Plus, I share things in the newsletter that I no longer share here (hint…what do you think happened to my monthly income reports).
- My Open Wallet with Spring Update That meal service sounds interesting but expensive comparably in our area. At $20 a day per person for 2 meals, hubby and I would be looking at a minimum of $800 a month and all of you already think we spend too much at $500-$600 a month, lol. But we live in Houston, not New York, so obviously there is some major differences. :-) I am sorry about her mom though…never fun to watch someone crash when it could have been avoided.
