Reward for me!!!!

Friday, August 07, 2009

I decided to reward myself today. Even though I don't physically have my reward yet, but it has been ordered!!

I had 2 books from an accounting class I took about 3 semesters ago laying around in my room. I was going to trash them since they don't use that edition at my college bookstore anymore so they wouldn't take them. So I found this website (there are several outhere), that you can sell back your books. They tell you how much they'll send you and you get this pre paid postage thing to send in your books. So I only had to buy an envelope for like $2 and I sent them in. That was last week, today I got $36.47 deposited into my paypal account for the books!! Y E A H!!! emoticon

So I thought to myself...what could I buy with $36.47??!?!?! Then it hit me! I need new make up! I used to wear Bare Minerals make (love it the best) and I ran out so I bought Mary Kay from my friend who sells it. I like it. But I LOVE Bare Minerals. Since I'm almost running out of the Mary Kay, well I ordered myself new make from ebay, for a total of $36.30 emoticon.

I have to say sorry to my friend, but I haven't found something better than Bare Minerals so no more Mary Kay for me! emoticon I'm so excited! And with these hot hot summer days, having a make up that you can't feel like you have a mask on is wonderful.

Just wanted to share my excitement. I can't wait. I'll check the mail every day next week!

**OH! I almost forgot. I started all over with my SP weight loss goal. So it readjusted my calories and stuff to lose those last few lbs. They were 10 lbs before now, they are 14 (gained a few). And the reward is for me losing 1 lbs lol. I lost 1 lb! I weighed myself today I am so happy! I can't believe I am in the losing zone again!

It's hard now, because it seems I'm losing inches instead of weight, which is good I guess. I have a pair of capri jeans I bought like a month ago and they are lose on me today!!!! Wow... I'm so happy! See...those cookies I attacked the other day weren't taht bad.... lol

    I really like Bare Minerals too! They make you look flawless and won't break out if you fall asleep with it on! We should always reward ourselves instead of punishing ourselves:)
