Retail Therapy

8:10 yesterday morning I get a call, it's Skyler, he's calling to get my address before he has to leave for the MTC later that day.  What a sweet surprise it was to hear his voice, bitter sweet.  He's been one of my best friends for years and yesterday I had to say my last goodbye.  Goodness I'm going to miss the boy!

Well I think that completely put me in a funk for the rest of the day.  
Later that night I decided I was going to make the best of the time I had left in the day, as you know I made delicious enchiladas and was able to see a good friend from Salt Lake City.  Being an awesome person (i'm so humble) I decided to take dinner to the guy I've gone on a couple dates with.  When I got to his house he was watching Saving Private Ryan in remembrance of all the veterans that have died for the freedoms that we have.  I sat down to watch the last forty minutes.  I have never been so disturbed by anything in my entire life!  I couldn't possibly understand why someone would willingly watch the horrors of war.
Needless to say it put my in a huge funk.  I completely freaked out about the character of the guy I've been spending time with.  I understand that not everyone has the same standards that I have but I realized that there are some huge differences between him and I.  As I walked into my apartment my roommates asked me how things went and I burst into tears and rushed to my bedroom.  How could I possibly date a person who hunts/shoots guns, plays violent video games and watches horrific war movies?  I made a rash decision to completely end things between us, but now as I think about it I realize that it would be stupid to end things without voicing what the problem is.  
I'm right in thinking that... right?

Well today I needed some major retail therapy!  Plus I needed some new jeans.  Loosing almost ten pounds means that your jeans no longer fit your nonexistent butt.  I got some way cutie super skinny jeans that I am currently wearing tucked into my black suede military style boots. I know that shopping shouldn't be used as a way to make you feel better, but sometimes I just can't help it.  I've been told that when you look good you feel good.  I wan't feeling good or looking good so I went shopping.  I didn't spend all that much and only got two things that weren't needed, a flouncy striped shirt and EL Fudge cookies.  

I love EL Fudge cookies, they make me happy!

Retail therapy is my best friend. My budget does not love it. But, I sure do!
