Adam and I tend to have pretty different approaches to spending money. Most of the time, Adam is able to contain my spendy ways, but when our birthdays roll around, it's a whole different story.
Case in point, when we each received a $50 check from Adam's generous grandpa as a birthday gift. I immediately headed to the clearance rack at Anthropologie. Two skirts and a few latte bowls later, my birthday check was a goner.
Adam, on the other hand, thought about what to do with his gift for two full months. He finally settled on the Magnificat, a magazine with daily prayers and mass readings. But, of course, he ordered a free copy first and then committed to a year's subscription.
We love it! And sure get a lot more use out of it than those skirts from Anthro. Let's just say I'm glad he's slowly rubbing off on me!
