Frugal = No fun

This will be a bit short because I'm uber disappointed right now and I'd like to go sulk my disappointment in a bag of Mint Milanos.

My dreams of a new wardrobe for work have been dashed. One look at my credit card bill and I know a shopping spree just isn't in the cards (pun totally intended). I want to know that my credit debt is manageable, and I cannot be trusted to stay within a small budget when it comes to clothes shoppping!

I was really looking forward to dressing up snazzy for the next two months before I become unemployed and hit the sweats again. I had visions of new wedge sandals, fancy heels, sundresses with cardigans, trendy spring scarves, and statement necklaces taking over my closet. I don't know how the hell I'm gonna manage to look decent for work. Everything I own is at this weird inbetween's either from before pregnancy (too small or just too worn out looking to look presentable) or during pregnancy (thankfully, those items are too big).

What to do, what to do. I wonder if they have added sweatpants and tank tops to the approved dress code. Oh well...I guess I am doomed to look like this forever...

Anyone know of any giveaways for a new wardrobe? ;) (For me, not Brit-Brit)

On a more positive note, it's Thankful Thursday!

Here is my list of 5 "little" things I am thankful for...feel free to comment with some of your own.

1.) Baseball season. Especially when beer is involved.
2.) Being able to open the windows again. Ironically, I am running the AC as I type this and the windows are closed...
3.) Makeup. Seriously, thank God for the person who thought of that idea.
4.) HGTV. Otherwise, I'd have nothing to put on for background noise from 1pm-4pm each day.
5.) Mint Milanos. Why is it so easy for me to eat Milanos by the bag, yet I can barely get down a whole apple?

As Always...
