Paying five dollars to get a Star Wars Lego costume made out of leather is totally worth it ........ according to my pal Ceesa. The deal was cinched the moment the product advertised FREE SHIPPING. ::ahem:: from South Korea!!!!! The cracker box traveled far and wide to bring a little joy to a bright eyed boy in Iowa (Lego figurine not included). Oh what a bigger world opens up to us through Ebay.
And now, an interactive quiz: What is wrong with this photo:
Last, but certainly not least, I have proof positive you do not need to spend an arm and a leg for holiday decorations and gifts.
Example: I purchased some Valentine-themed napkins for $1.50 and 3 chocolate covered marshmallow hearts. After the children went to bed, I laid out the candy on the kitchen table and went to work on the decorations:
Napkins cut into heart shapes and taped on the fridge
Proof: Ben and Ellie came running into our bedroom this morning with huge smiles on their faces and said: "Mom! Dad! Cupid IS real!!!"
I swear they were as excited today as they were on Christmas morning. A reminder to me that it is all about the effort and thought and not so much about the money spent.
I hope you all had a moment to tell your Valentine how much you love and appreciate him or her. Happy Valentine's Day!
