Happy birthday to both of you! Isn't it funny to think your birthday splurge is at a grocery store??

Laurie said...

You guys totally deserve a birthday splurge!!! Happy Birthday girl!!

That's funny that you & DH have a birthday so close together...Ryan & I are three days apart :-)

Lindsay said...

Suz,
Thanks!!! We've done a lot of splurging across the board... but I wanted to make sure I could show that you can still splurge and stay under budget! ;)

Laurie,
Yes, it's very funny! :) Or maybe just meant to be....!!!
