Where are you spring?

Thursday, March 21, 2013

2nd day of spring and it's 12 degrees outside right now. I had to start running the humidifier again last night, our bedroom dropped back to 16%. Everytime I look at the 10 day forcast, it seems like a 49 degree day keeps getting pushed back to the end. It's spring somewhere. I went to aldi and they had 99 cent strawberries! I ate a whole pint of them with 2 servings of full fat whip cream last night for 164 calories! My body has gotten used to not eating as much fruit this winter. Ughhhh SPRING!!!!!

I noticed yesterday my bulbs i planted last fall are popping out of the ground! The stinky squirrels only dug up one.

My dance teacher is on vacation, we are gonna miss her! The teacher we had before her is coming back to sub and she does a lot of pop, so it will be a fun change. I treated myself last night and got some fitness tops new. Pretty much the only thing I don't buy new is shoes and underwear lol Everything else is fair game. Fitness tops are hard to buy used though, Usually all the good ones are way too small and worn to death. I am still on college student spending mode. Being thrifty just feels right.....except when it comes to shoes....My mom grew up really poor. Like she slept on the couch in a 1 bedroom apartment poor. But it was always important her and her brother to have good shoes no matter what. My feet suck, I can't wear cheap shoes. If I buy like cheap dress shoes, I can get from my car to an interview and back again and that's about it lol Tori my friend on here showed me there was vibrams on sale. I have 2 pairs I retired and 2 pairs I have been going back and forth between. I re-purchased one of the retired pairs in a different color. Now I gotta break them in slowly.

Today I run!

    This weather is disgusting!!!! We are running the humidifier 24/7.

    I love strawberries and bought some of the Aldis ones too. LOL.

    I can't wear cheap shoes either. Can't stand the pain.

    Wow! 12 degrees is COLD! Yikes! I guess I can't complain, it was 40 degrees here this morning and will probably get up to 60 degrees. And we think that is cold in Alabama, lol.
    That fruit looks so yummy, I love strawberries.
    I am jealous, I wish I was thrifty. I am not. I have no idea how to find my size and what I need/want in thrift stores. I wish I did b/c it'd be so much cheaper, especially losing weight and having to buy new clothes as I lose.
    I can't wear cheap shoes either. At all.

    Glad you are doing so well. Have a great day!

    I'm so glad you got those vibrams with that sale! :)

    And now you make me want strawberries + whip cream! mmm. I bought 3 pints of 'berries at Meijer last week- still have 2 left. Maybe I'll stop and get some whip cream to go with them! Thanks for the idea, lady!

    Oh, I am also SO ready for spring. It was snow flurrying last night!!!! Blech.

    Our area can't compare with 12 degrees but it's just about the end of March and they are predicting snow late tonight into the early morning hours. What the weather is like today or tomorrow doesn't matter too much though. Around here (in and around Memphis, TN) it can be snowing today and in the 70s by tomorrow.
