Friday Five: Who/What Was The Last? 4



Hello Sophisticated Spenders!

Friday is my favorite day of the week!

My spending challenge is going very, very well!

I started off the week (on Sunday) with $100.

You will have to wait till Monday to see if I passed or failed the challenge!

Time for some questions!

Who/What was the last?

1.  Book you read?

2.  Item you bought?

3. Text message you sent?

4. Meal you ate?

5. Present you bought?

Here are my answers:

1.  Book you read?  I read The $1,000 Challenge by Brian J. O’Connor.  I met Brian at a blogging conference.  I have 2 copies to give away to 2 people who are brave enough to post their answers below!

2.  Item you bought?  I spent $27.00 on 3 bottles of my aunt’s favorite wine.  She’s visiting from Chicago and this awesome wine is only sold in wine country (aka Virginia).

3. Text message you sent?  “Why’d u have to move so far away???” I sent that (right before my phone died) to a friend who moved last week!

4. Meal you ate/cooked?  I went to happy hour and a few of my friends and I shared meals.  I assisted the smashing of wings, 2 pasta dishes and 2 desserts.  I baked some chicken thighs and had salad for lunch.

5. Present you bought?  I bought a really cute box and filled it with a body wash gift set from sephora, KY his & her jelly and some cash for a bridal shower gift for my friend.  I tend to give people cash for birthdays (if you’re turning 30 you’re getting $30 from me and etc) so that doesn’t really count as buying a present.

Your turn!

I can’t wait to hear your answers!

    1. Book you read? I am reading The Widower’s Tale by Julia Glass. Her first novel, Three Junes, had me hooked, so now I am chronologically going through the rest of her works.

    2. Item you bought? Cashews to keep in my desk at work. I need to eat every few hours or I feel sluggish, so a handful help keep me in non-serial killer mode between meals.

    3. Text message you sent? “Decided to take that nap or still in the land of The Bachelorette?” Sent to the cop I am talking to who just got off the night shift. Yes, he watches The Bachelorette lol

    4. Meal you ate/cooked? Wheat bread sandwich thin smeared with some peanut butter. It is my standard breakfast. If I didn’t have a “standard breakfast,” I wouldn’t eat that meal at all, b/c my brain doesn’t start actually working until about 8 or 9AM.

    5. Present you bought? A plaque-type thing with my niece’s name spelled out with different pictures. It was for her 11th birthday. Attempting to solidify my spot as the “coolest family member.” Lol.
