13 things I bought in the last week...






It's another week that I have to do my TT on a hurry. Time flies for sure. I'll do it on things I have bought in the past week. I sure did spend a lot of money, it's insane but with the new job, getting everything ready, I had to. But whatever, sorry for such consumerism, I'm usually not much of a spender (well not that bad).

1. A MacBook, I bought the 13 inches 2.0GHz. I got it this afternoon, I researched it yesterday, called this morning but I had doubts, but this morning I told The Friendly Boss (TFB) about my project and it confirmed me in what I wanted, what I needed. I kinda needed some type of paternal approval.mrgreen I got the 3 year warranty, so with the apple 1 year it gives me 4 years of warranty.

2. Clothes... For the new job that starts on Monday.

3. A window Insulation kit. Similar to this one, for my patio door and a kit for the other windows. This thing has cut my electric bill for the past 2 winter.

4. Candles... I love to have scented candles...

5. Cat food... Mr.Cat has to eat ya know!

6. Greeting cards for my friend's kids and a "Thank You" card.

7. I got sexy panties again yesterday... It's claudia's fault!!! wink

8. Motrin IB

9. Grocery food; Because ya know, a girl has to eat eh?....

10. A scarf and mittens ... they are soo freaking soft to touch.mrgreen

11. Clinique Makeup

12. Herbal tea

13. A movie theater ticket. I went to see "Michael Clayton" last Friday with a friend. George Clooney was so freaking hot!!!.



I feel a bit ashamed after seeing my list. redface I will refrain from spending money in the next week, I have everything I need. Have you had to buy a lot of things/clothes when you got a new job? Anyone have wisdom to share about any of the things on my list?

Oh yes, starting a new job is a great excuse to buy stuff! Congrats and enjoy all of your purchases! :)

Lara Angelina said...

It must have been a week for shopping -- I spent way too much last week. I don't know what happened -- autumn? Halloween? Altho I started a new job too, so I figured it was all justified! Hope you are enjoying all your purchases!
Great TT and thanks for visiting!

Cassandra said...

Wonderful list. I love to make herbal teas and I make my own candles too. Lots of fun. But I do have to buy my own sexy lingerie. Unless I can talk the were-bear into forking over his Visa card. LOL

Have a Great Thursday!

No Nonsense Girl said...

Jackie: Thanks a lot!!!! and you are right, I am entitled to, it's my own money I didn't steal it.

Lori: Yeah, george clooney is the hottest man alive. You do, go to lavieenrose.com or La senza.com they've got a great selection of sexy panties... I don't like grocery shopping so much but ya know, a girl has to eat...

Deb: Thanks, thanks, thanks. :)

Lara: Congrats on the new job!!! enjoy yours also!!!

cassandra: Is it hard to make your own herbal eta? Yeah, i'm the one in charge of the viusa, that's why it's easier . LOL!!! Thanks for visit me!!!

Dane Bramage said...

All I bought all week is gasoline. And I think George Clooney is only hot in a whiney liberal self absorbant way. But that's just me. :-)

Thanks for visiting my T13 #52 13 Comic books that were made into movies.

Dane bramage: You made me giggle!!! I

Hi, thank you for stopping by my blog. We have more in common than you realize! I too am a "Former Catholic Church Worker."
Congratulations on your new job! From your excitement it sounds like a great one. Best of luck and blessings to you.

Xakara said...

It's so hard for me to spend money, but when I don't have a choice in it, I go all out and get it done. It sounds like you did it right.

And every woman needs sexy panties. It can set a tone for your whole day even though you're the only one that knows. :)

Happy TT

Joyismygoal said...

Thomma Lyn said...

I hear ya on the cat food -- with a sick kitty, I've been buying lots of extra wet cat food and cat treats to act as reward for taking medications! I'm happy to say he's better -- I'm so relieved. :)

The MacBook sounds way cool! :)

Patrizia said...

A new job is as good excuse as any to buy new clothes. ;-) Btw, I am drooling over your #1 purchase. I'm trying to persuade Dh to get a new one at Christmas. One can hope, right?

Good luck with the new job and happy TT!

Patrizia said...

Shoot, I just realized that you're set up not to accept other IDs. MY TT is on my website blog:

Hootin'Anni said...

Well, good luck with your new job!!!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I haven't had a new job in years, at least one in which my wardrobe had to change. But we're going to Yellowstone this winter, and I've been buying all sorts of impossibly warm clothes (including boots that are rated for -45 degrees!). I've been buying them all on sale, but still...

It adds up and, like you, I squirm.

Happy TT anyway. Put all those purchases to good use (especially the sexy panties; they always make you feel good!).

Cora Zane said...

Starting a new job is a great reason to shop! Congrats on all those goodies. :) Happy T13!

jenn said...

We can all splurge every now and then.
Happy TT!

scooper said...

I hope the new computer works out. I've been wanting an apple for about a year now.

~Rhen said...

So true- the right panties and food are always essentials

Izzybella said...

Oh, I really want a Mac notebook!! My laptop sort of died in the sense that it rolled over and tried to recreate the the Paul Rueben's death scene from the buffy the vampire slayer movie. All "ooh, aah, oww, I'm dead." It was very sad and pathetic. Anyway, enjoy yours.

Denise Patrick said...

Hey, you go girl!! It sounds like this job is just wonderful for you. I wish you all the best - and I'm glad you found me again. I'll add you to my blogroll, too.

Happy TT!

Elle Fredrix said...

Hmm, the only things I have in common are the groceries and the motrin!

Natalie said...

Wahoo! Shopping! :)

Lucy R. E. said...

I say, if you can afford to shop for new clothes for a new job then go for it! I'll be starting a new one myself in November and am hoping to afford a couple new things myself. I've been kind of crazy about buying things to decorate my new apartment lately. I obsessively check craigslist to see if there's anything I can get for cheap to dress up. And candles? Oh candles are a necessity so don't even worry about that. ;)

The Gal Herself said...

I'm so jealous of your Mac. I need a new one. I long for a new one. I crave a new one. Well, you get the idea.

That's a very diverse list: motrin, tea, and sexy panties. You are a girl of many facets!

Nap Warden said...

Shoppin' is fun, good for you!

Crux said...

I'm thinking of getting a Mac mini, but I'm waiting until Leopard comes loaded on it. Did yours come with Leopard?

You've already visited mine (Buck Naked Politics).

No Nonsense Girl said...

elle fredrix: everyone has to eat eh? :)

Nathalie: Yeah, shopping's fun!!!

lucy re: I have never done craiglist, do you get good deals? I'm not good on interior decoration.. I'm more of a clothes lover and makeup. LOL!!!! We all need candles don't we?

gal herself: I totally know what you mean. I've been in love with this baby for over one freaking year. i love love it. I will get a wireless router and that's it. :)

And yup, I'm a girl of many facets!!! :D

nap warden: yup, totally cool!!!

Crux: nope, mine did not but I'll be able to updrade to leopard in 8 days when it gets out. :D that's cool eh? :)

mac mini's are cool too!!!

Like I said, I only need the wireless router to get away from the modem but I'm a happy girl. :)

Jenny McB said...

CONGRATULATIONS on the job!! And of course shopping is needed.

You should love your macbook, it's wicked cool to video chat with friends. My son has one and we get to see how clean the dorm room is..lol

Have a great weekend, and get some sleep.

No Nonsense Girl said...

Jenny: Thanks a lot. I already love this little puppy. I won't show anyone my face right now. :P

I'll sleep saturday because I'm working at the church all day sunday for the cruiseship visitors. Last day, it'll be a great way to leave the church and get back to the other job!!!

stephanie said...

Hey, I also bought Clinique, new clothes, and tea this week! And I almost helped pay for another minute in George's bachelorhood but instead went to see "Elizabeth."

Cool idea; I might just copy sometime...

Tink said...

Good luck on the new job!

No Nonsense Girl said...

April Elizabeth said...

congrats on the mac book!

No Nonsense Girl said...

April: the movie was good, I love george clooney. I mean to "see" him for 2 hours, is a gift by itself. ;) but the story is good, action and the moral too. I hope you see it!!!!

And I love, love the MacBook!!!
