Red Lipstick

Friday, March 2, 2012

I have been on the lookout for the perfect shad of red. I blame pinterest for this obsession. All these fabulously glamorous ladies pulling off red lips. I have searched Nordstroms, Macys, online and then all of a sudden we were at Target and there is was.

British red. 

Michael and I have started a new budget system where our free spending money comes from exercise and scripture study. Basically we pay ourselves to do those things. So if I was going to buy this lipstick it was going to have to come out of my budget. Trying to be responsible... I set the British Red among the gum as we were waiting in line at the register to buy our things.

He said, "What are you doing?"

I said, "Putting it back. I can get it later."

Now you have to know that my husband is not the biggest fan of lipstick. On a scale of 1-10 he is a 2.

He said, "But you have been wanting it."

I said, "Yeah, but I am being responsible."

He said, "I'll get it for you. From my budget."

I said, "Really?"

He said, "Yes, I love you."

I am now the owner of red lipstick and in the husband department I think I win.
