My husband recently won a contest at work and was rewarded a $50.00 gift card. He could choose between two hardware stores or from several restaurants. Being the absolute sweetheart that he is, he told me that the card was for me and allowed me to make the choice.
Hmmm... I can go out to eat and have nothing to show for it except excess calories that cling to my hips, or I can select a card and use the money later for spring plants, buy something for the birds, or maybe even a compost container. That was an easy decision. The Lowe's card came in the mail today!
Even better news is that his boss agreed to match the card and I think I'm getting another one. One hundred totally guilt free dollars to spend on my outdoor obsessions. Thank you, sweetheart!
