Tax Return

I generally save all of my tax returns into my emergency funds. However, I do use it as an excuse to buy myself something I'd like but don't really need. If you know me, you know I never buy things and would hate to be caught in a mall on the weekend. Which is why I found myself wearing some sweaters this winter that I know were bought during my one shopping spree in 2003.

A few years ago, I bought myself a hand held planetarium, which I really enjoy.

Last year you could say I used some of my return for an iPad, but that decision was made as soon as it was announced. And I have enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. Especially if you have lap dogs and lap cats, you can still browse while they are being needy.

Not sure what I will do this year, although I did just go on my annual (or less frequent) shopping spree with Meghan. It started as a few shirts for my Vegas trip and ended up with stuff for work, running, etc.
I did buy a new cologne. For the past couple years as I work more with perfumes at work I have been interested in finding a new cologne. I don't think my array of Old Spice White Water or Body Sprays truly counts.
After smelling and spraying the entire isle, I chose Swiss Army Mountain Water. Aside from smelling good, the whole water bottle container looks hilarious.

Dave - I was a bit let down - I thought you were announcing your next big purchase... maybe an exercise bike?

Dave-although mountain water smells great, I think you should consider adding the Tim McGraw fragrance we smelled to your collection.

Here's what they are saying about it...

"An instant classic. This men's McGraw by Tim McGraw cologne spray has a woody, spicy fragrance that's irresistibly masculine. Perfect for any occasion."

Haha!! :)
