Posted on December 10, 2008 | 21 CommentsAnd this is why I want to move to Texas. Heavy snow yesterday followed by ice pellets, then freezing rain this morning followed by a dusting (!!!) of a light snow storm (which looks worse than in the photos in real life because it just...
Posted on December 10, 2008 | 20 CommentsWhen I was visiting my best friend the other day, she mentioned going out of control and spending on a Louis Vuitton handbag, as well as a Coach one and a couple of Tiffany items. I first told her how ugly I thought the logo...
Posted on December 9, 2008 | 7 CommentsI’ve learned a lot about travelling frugally and intelligently.
