You can't buy me...maybe

I'm not even going to lie. I'm materialistic. I like spending time with family and friends, but at the end of the day, I like being surrounded by stuff. This is why my room is overflowing with random things.

My mom and I don't get along. I think her new husband is weird. She took me out for an early birthday lunch today, which was ok. We didn't talk much.

Then we went shopping.

My mom's not rich. She's not poor. She's somewhere in between. When we went shopping she asked me what I wanted, and I told her I needed scarfs. I saw a few that I was just like wow, these are pretty!

Before I knew it, without looking at the price, my new stepdad was like, "LET'S GET IT!"

I pretty much had a heart attack when we were checking out and I heard the price of these two scarfs. $80. Dude. I have never ever ever spent that much on an accessory. Ever.

Now, to some people, this is normal, but me? No. $20-$30 is the limit on what I would spend on accessories.

When we first left the store I felt a little guilty, but right now, not so much. It was for my birthday, and this new guy is just trying to prove that he's a good stepdad, so should I feel bad? I think not. Not to mention he's already mentioned the words: Dallas, Shopping spree, and Hundreds of dollars, Saturday after Christmas.

I think this guy is going to make up monetarily for all the crappy experiences I had with my mom.


  1. It's good to hear things are goin' well for you now. :) :P

  2. Holy cow, $80 just for two scarves? That does sound like a lot O: Haha, I guess your stepdad's attempts to win you over with material items may be working a bit? That would probably win me over too, haha... :P Kudos for honesty!

  3. oh, you deserve it! i know it can be hard to overcome buyers' guilt, but it's your birthday! folks like to do good things for people who deserve it! be flattered and come up with some cute outfits to add your scarves to!
