mr. B is a sweetie.....

..but you probably know that by now..at least that "I" think he is..oh, me ...and his Momma..and my sisters..and our daughters..and our grand-girlies..

..but anyway...

When we spent Christmas in Las Vegas, I won a small fortune..yeppers..5 figures..

...$100.00 to be exact!

And, if you'd been betting I'd have it like 5 minutes before it was spent..you'd loose that bet ;-D

I STILL have it..tucked safely in my old worn out wallet..

Wanna know why?  I was soo tickled that I had won (Mr. B won more..but he played more..)  that I kept saying I didn't know exactly what I wanted to spend it on.

Oh..that and I haven't spent it on a brand new wallet.. {yet}

So every time  I find something, he puts it on the register and takes out is Visa..{I don't carry one..or any other...because I tried, single-handedly, to end the recession and stimulate the economy..all. by. myself..}

So, I have a couple of new things AND $100 in my old worn out wallet!

Yesterday, I he bought this sweater and a happy accident..I already had this necklace that looks as if it was made for it..




I have had such luck so far..think it was all those black-eyed peas we had on New Year's Day??




maybe ;-D

Love the sweater! Can I borrow Mr. B?

I love that sweater.. and the necklace... and you look fantastic in both!

ain't for city gals said...

That five figure amount is going to last a long, long time if you can figure out how to have Mr. B with you every time you see something you like. I don't carry a credit card either....much harder to buy something. I have to admit...when I am at Costco with Mr. Gates ..knowing he is paying...I get a little more carried away...lol...like it makes a difference...all the money comes out of one place.

You are so cute! And frugal! The sweater is delicious and I know that Mr. B will continue to subsidize your frugality. He's a gem. Sadly, I didn't eat any o' those black-eyed peas. Dang!

Congratulation on your win. He sure is a sweetie. I too have tried to end the recession but my sweetie doesn't pull out his credit card! Love the sweater and the necklace.

Congratulations on your good fortune! I am convinced that I am going to win the lottery; I just do not know when, which is a problem. As everyone else has said, that is a very pretty picture of you! You have such lovely eyes and I am envious of your beautiful hair.
Best,
Collen

I don't blame you for wanting to use your $100 to get something very special.
