Got Promoted. Made Purchase to Celebrate.
« on: November 26, 2013, 08:16:10 PM »
I was promoted at work. So excited about this!

To celebrate, I treated myself to a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day. $2.65.

After I paid the $2.65, I thought about how "cheap" I was being and smiled.

That's really all I needed. I went a bit further though. In the evening, I bought a fancy pantsy chocolate bar with crystallized ginger and shared it with the family.

Big spender, I am.

Watch out! Before you know it, this will turn into a habit.

Congratulations, that's fantastic!

Personally I think making an extra nice dinner (or even, shock horror, going out to eat somewhere lovely) is a good way to celebrate promotions :-) or a picnic with chocolate dipped strawberries!

This morning I have been mad at myself for eating chocolate last night.  But then it occurred to me that maybe I was celebrating your promotion!
