When we walked out of Walgreens, I underestimated how windy it was. The wind attacked me, tearing my receipt out of my bag and flinging it across the parking lot! AUGH! My boyfriend goes, "oh well, hon". OH NO! I need that sucker, he can't get away! DBF chuckled at me, ran across the parking lot and heroically rescued my receipt from the bushes where it had been ensnared. Phew! Guess I'll keep him around for situations like this. Thanks honey! :)

DBF and I took a leisurely drive through scenic Sussex County this afternoon. It was a gorgeous day, sunny and in the 50's, a warm relief from the 20 degree weather we've been having. Its really gorgeous up there, lots of farms and open spaces. We didn't have any destination in mind, just drove around enjoying each other's company, the beautiful weather and some great country music. There's nothing like a country song to put me in a great mood. Take a Ride with Martina, chill out with the Zac Brown Band or enjoy a little Kenny. I don't know what it is, but there's something about a good country song that makes me sit back and realize how much I love life. Ahhh...

I went to get an UPC off a bag of chips and the chips were gone! I was freaking out and called hubby. Turns out he had the bag with him at work and brought the UPC back home with him. He knew how important is was to me, sounds silly I know, but some men do get it... and we are lucky.

I am ROFLMAO just reading about you chasing that receipt. :-)

Total was $ .17 at CVS! WOW!

I never thought I would see the day you could make a profit buying condoms! Now I have seen it. LOL!

Lisa,
Oh no! I would have panicked too. Because my boyfriend is so supportive of me, my life is so much easier. He was the one that spotted the Gamer razors at Walgreens - I couldn't find them anywhere.

Precious,
We were cracking up all afternoon too. Some poor woman was sitting outside Walgreens when this happened. She must think I'm totally insane! :)

LOL about the condoms - I know! Too funny

Tanya,
Thank you! I totally agree, he is awesome. :)
