Last Wednesday I was sick. I mean like woke up at 2:30 am feeling like crap sick. The worst part was that I could not fall back to sleep. I don’t think that’s ever happened to me before. By 5 am I decided I wasn’t going to work and see a doctor. I hate using my PTO days like this. I rather save them and use them for vacation but there was no way I was going to make it through the day on like 2 hours of sleep.

Turns out I caught a parasite from my trip to Jamaica and had to start taking 3 different prescriptions to get rid of it. Thankfully I went to the doctor because it would have gotten a lot worse and with the medicine I was starting to feel better later that day.

By the weekend I was feeling great. Saturday I got my haircut and colored. I went really dark this time and it took a while for me to get used to it. Since the sun lighted up my hair so much this summer it was like a new person staring back into the mirror. I’m loving it now though. It really makes my eyes pop out.

For some reason I really felt like spending money this weekend. First was my hair, which cost a pretty penny. Then I bought a Kate Spade bag from their outlet store. It is gorgeous and I don’t even regret spending all that money on it. It was 40% off, I couldn’t resist. Then I bought myself some Puma sneakers and a birthday gift for my friend and my mom. Both aren’t for a while but I just couldn’t help myself.

In total I spent almost $500 dollars this weekend. Since I’m pretty tight with my money usually I tend to splurge once in a while. This was defiantly a splurge weekend. I don’t even feel guilty!

Have you ever just splurged on something without giving it a second thought? What was your best splurge?

I splurge every day without guilty. I am not one who saves and hoards for a rainy day. I had the idea of depriving myself on something just my saving account looks better. :-)

And I LOVE Kate Spade.

I am glad you are feeling better. Parasites can be very dangerous.

I like to splurge on last minute vacations!
