As some of you may know, I have not had a great couple of days/week. It has been an endless array of budget spreadsheets and drama that culminated in me crawling under my covers today, crying to Harrod the teddy bear, and pretty much refusing to get out of bed. Yes. I know. Not my finest moment.
I had a business meeting on base today that I simply could not reschedule so I finally had to put on my big girl panties, a Lilly polo, some pearls, and waltz out the door. After the business meeting, we had a spouses' association meeting that I was required to be at. We had several door prizes at the meeting for members in good standing, and I won the motherload. A $100 gift card to Tiffany & Co.!!!!! Just last week, I wrote in this post how a big white bow on a little blue box can instantly brighten your day. And oh yes it does! In between that, and a hilarious early wedding gift from a friend I spent the rest of the evening on Cloud 9.
Now comes the very happy dilemma of what do I spend it on? There are several items on the Tiffany & Co. website that I have been lusting after and are now suddenly a lot more within my reach.
Mini Bow Earrings, $125
Also, TLS and I have a small registry at Tiffany. We wanted a pair of flutes for the wedding from there and our original plan was that if no one bought them for us, we would get them ourselves. I can't find them on the website any more (and am hoping that they are still available in store!) but they were the pearl flutes and cost $95 each. I don't know if I should be selfish and use the gift card to get something for myself, or get us the flutes for the wedding. Thoughts? What would you do?
Also, I am going to leave you with a picture of the hysterical gift that my friend brought to the meeting tonight.
Backstory, before TLS and I started dating, I would always refer to him on facebook as "some guy." My posts always said "sending a package to some guy" or "on the phone with some guy." After our first date, he asked me if he was still going to be called some guy, and I said "of course, why would that change?" That nickname has grown exponentially through the help of facebook, and now most of my friends simply know him as some guy. Even in person. (When we got engaged, I even got a facebook message from the past national president of my sorority congratulating me on my engagement to some guy.). So one of my friends here got me a tote bag from 31 Gifts to use for after the wedding:
