Will you be my Valentine?

Happy Valentine's Day blog land!
The warm weather managed to stick around another day and I enjoyed it.  I still have a few days off before I move to The Windy City!  Well I have found a quaint apartment in Arlington Heights.  I will be sure to tell you all about it when I move in, along with an abundance of photos.
Back to the way I have been spending my day.  I have been spending lots of moola lately, mostly because I have too much free time to shop.  But also because I have some gift cards for the Iowa City area that I need to spend before I leave.
I stopped in at work today to collect some of my stuff and quite amazingly I have amassed quite the pile there.  So after that I hopped on over to Prairie Lights and bought these.
I'm excited to read them, but unfortunately there is a long line of books I need to read.  I keep buying and buying and borrowing them but somehow I never read them.  Eventually I will sometime get to them, I promise.  Judging by their covers, they look good.  I'm just kidding I would never judge a book by its cover.  But really I do it all the time.
Panchero's was my next destination due to a Free Burrito card.  Best of all they had pink tortillas today in honor of the day.  It was delicious, but I always eat too much and feel sick afterwards.  Some day I will learn, but probably not soon.
The gift card to the bookstore was just burning a hole in my pocket.  So I had to buy this.
Forgive my laziness, but I wouldn't get up off the couch.  It's very comfy.
I like shopping and it is soooooo much nicer when I don't have to spend my own money.  Oddly enough at the same time, I will hold onto a gift card forever.  I don't understand this about myself.  It's almost like I feel guilty spending the free money on myself.  Sometimes I use them to buy gifts for others.  What is that? Not that I don't like buying gifts for others, I love it.  But when someone gives you a gift I believe that you should use it for yourself.  That's the point.  It's important to treat yourself sometimes.  That makes giving to others much more enjoyable.

I realize this post is bad but I am posting it anyway.  Hope for better tomorrow.
