What $1300 Will Buy You

Remember that one day when I took my Mr. Hubs' car to the dealership, and it needed over $1200 worth of work done to it? And then, the very next day, I got a ticket for $100 and a picture of me running a red light in the mail? And, remember when I could have sworn that when Mr. Hubs opened that piece of mail, he kind of grinned, because he was happy that it was me and not him this time? Remember when I made that grin go away as soon as I reminded him that this was the only ticket I'd gotten since we've been married, and that he's had...a few more? That was my Friday and Saturday. Don't even get me started on everything and anything else that I could have spent that money on. Car problems and tickets are definitely at the top of my list of things I hate to spend money on.  So, what will $1300 buy you? For you, any one of these three things. For me? A red light ticket and car repairs. Ugh. You win some, you lose some, right?!

  1. i'll take the last one please.

  2. Car reapis costs are the woorrrrrst! Glad you're laughing about it now, though. ;) Can't wait to see you this summer!!

  3. Oh my gosh that is awful!! There is honestly nothing worse than spending money on a speeding ticket or a parking ticket for that matter!!! I really love the last picture.

  4. Oh, that stinks. Once I got a $650 speeding ticket for speeding in a construction zone (where nobody was working). Luckily I got out of most of it due to the poor math skills of the D.A. That was the money I needed to buy a flight to New Zealand. But on a side note, I'm excited for you to move!

  5. I would MUCH rather have that gorgeous dresser than $1,300 spent on car repairs and tickets. Plus, I hate ticketing cameras…we have both red light and speed cameras in Maryland. They’re evil.

  6. OMG that bed. The last pic-- I want it!!

    Hopping over from SITS sharefest! :) Great blog!
    Have a lovely weekend.

  7. I seriously want to live in the Crate and Barrel catalog. If that's too much to ask, I'll agree to settle for living in a Pottery Barn catalog. That bed looks so lovely and serene.
