1. How many pairs of sunglasses do you own?

2. Besides big ticket items (like houses, cars, etc.), what is one thing that you will spend extra money on because you feel you get what you pay for with that item?

3. Name one thing that makes you happy this week.

If the school budget goes through (which it will as there is no big problems this year and it is a low increase and refund) we get the late busses back next year Laughing

ARGGGHHHH! The misplaced apostrophe makes me hurt!

1. How many pairs of sunglasses do you own? -- one

2. Besides big ticket items (like houses, cars, etc.), what is one thing that you will spend extra money on because you feel you get what you pay for with that item? -- shoes, good food, good wine/beer/tequila  (Oh, that's more than one thing.)

3. Name one thing that makes you happy this week. -- We had an awesome time at the Styx/Foreigner concert on Friday. Both kids are wearing their concert Ts today.  We had five teenagers with us, who enjoyed the concert as much as the three old fogeys did.   It was a real pleasure to see them enjoying long-standing, quality music.  It's nice to share epxeriences from our youth with them during their youth.  It made me a bit verklempt though, because four of those five are graduating in 4 days.

My grill was a bit expensive too - no $40 small, cheapo for me.  I am due for a new one soon; mine is still functional, but could go kaput any time now.

BTDT buying the cheapo ones thinking they were all the same. My gf would buy the cheapy $150-$200 grills and would have to replace them every 2 or so years. I told her if she just spent the money, she could have it for many more years. My parents Weber lasted them well over 20 years. Well worth the money, IMO.

1.  None.  I don't think I have ever owned a pair.

2.  I won't spend "extra" money on anything, but I do try to buy good quality items when I have to buy something.

3.  We are done, done, done, done, done, done, done, done with having kids in school (K-12).

1. Beats me.

2. Quilt shop fabric. 

3. The main section of my Mariners' Compass quilt is nearing completion.  Then I'll work on the queen extensions (making it big enough to be a queen-sized quilt.)

1.  No regular sun glasses but both of my eye glasses have photogray lenses which darken when I am in the sun.

2.  Spending more on better quality furniture has really been a good investment.  The cheap stuff that we bought when it was all we could afford did not last.  

3.  Ball game tomorrow night with family.

One, I only own one at a time and right now I have a pair of Foster Grant sunglasses I found on clearance last year for about 3.00, I'm not a big wearer of sunglasses but these are alright.  Shoes, furniture and cereal.  It's supposed to be a beatuiful week and I can't wait for the weeknd, End of the school year soon too and DS field day.

Lol, My favorite grills are the cheap kind. My then boyfriend/now DH had this apartment patio that we used to grill out on all year, I remember one Winter it being bone chilling cold and grilling out on that thing, It was the experience more than it was the quality of the grill I guess, Haha.
