Since it is July and I start my Christmas shopping early- I would take that money and get my shopping done!  (Also since I am due December 22nd- it is probably a good idea to get the shopping done sooner rather than later!)  I also am so tempted to just do a giftcard Christmas for everyone.  It would be much easier!

A hell of a lot of Delica beads, a bunch of cute dresses I’ve been drooling over recently (I only have justification to buy one to wear to a friend’s upcoming wedding), a new sewing machine, and yards and yards of fabric to play with and sew myself something pretty.

Oooh plane tickets home to visit my family for a week!

And I could really use new running sneakers as well.

and extra personal training sessions when my run out with whatever is leftover.

An Ipad, because the FI wants one sooo much. I want to surprise him with one so bad.

lol I was going to write “pay off some debt” until I read the last bit ๐Ÿ™‚

okay…there’s quite a few things but these are the most recent wants

1. my wedding album

2. this:

it’s well over $500 but if I had the extra $500, I’d buy it.

3. An Ipad 2.

Of course, I’d have to choose between those thing if I did have $500 appear out of nowhere.

 

ETA: oh dang, I broke the rules with the wedding album.

Oh I like the plane ticket idea, can I have a week off from work too? ๐Ÿ™‚

As far as things, I think I would buy a netbook and a Lily Pulitzer dress because i really want both right now.

Get my car detailed (I live in the city and have tons of dings, paint chips) and get laser hair removal (underarms and bikini area, :-D). I know they’re weird options, they are just two things I really want and just won’t pay for myself.

Option 1…Honestly, I’d probably treat myself to a total girl day. Hair, massage, nails,etc. The works… Lol.

Or option 2, buy some cute new scrubs. That part may sound responsible, but cute scrubs make me happy. I’d get a new tv, too.

Here’s a Samsung TV 32″ (since we already have our “manly” 60″ one, lol) on sale for 327.99

haha, oh man. there are so many responsible things I could do with $500.00!!! My house needs so much work!

But, for my pure entertainment? I would buy:

MAC Make-up Brush Set: $50.00

Then I’d probably blow the rest on cute clothes that will finally get me some sort of “style” which I greatly lack at the moment.

I’d either invest it or put it in a high-yield savings account for our down payment or furniture/room redos of a new condo/house. I really want a nice place to live way more than I want “stuff” these days!
