The Big Spender

He made me proud this weekend.
He was off this Sunday and we had no plans for the day. Around lunch time we were both getting antsy. We decided to head over to the bookstore, because what else do you do when there is nothing to do? He decided when we got over there he wanted to go to Dick's Sporting Goods. I asked to please be dropped off at Target.

I walked around Target a bit. Then went to stand in one of the only two lines open to buy my two shirts I found on clearance. He came into the store and came to stand in line with me. I asked if he found anything (stupid question). He said yeah, there was a golf club on sale for $30 that is regularly $120. I told him that maybe he should go back and buy it. He said "I did."
This is a major thing. He NEVER buys himself anything. He is one of those he won't buy whatever he wants and then by the time he does make up his mind to buy whatever it is, it's gone.

I was in shock the rest of the time in line. It almost brought tears to my eyes. I was so proud of him. After ten years together, I'm finally rubbing off on him.

That is great. My fiance is the same. He rarely buys something for himself just like your guy. Glad he found something.

My hubby is the same way. He takes forever to decide to buy anything! My policy is, I can always return it, so I'd better buy it now!
