Sometimes I feel the need to put things in perspective for my husband.
Like sending him a link to this moisturizer. And reminding him that some women buy this on a regular basis. And then talking a lot about how lucky he is to have such a frugal wife who doesn't spend $275 on a small jar of moisturizer.
This conversation almost always happens right before he looks at our RedCard statement. He always acts suspicious about this coincidence which completely baffles me.
Or sometimes it happens right before I tell him I want to buy $30 moisturizer.
It's kind of like when you're a teen and you call your parents and say "Hey I'm in jail, come pick me up." And when that has sunk in, you say "Great news! I'm not in jail. But I did skip English today."
Perspective is a beautiful thing.
Something that needs no perspective is ice cream pie.
Ice cream. Pie. It just works.
I came up with a Cadbury chocolate ice cream recipe to use for this pie, but you can always sub a store-bought chocolate ice cream. If you go with homemade ice cream, keep in mind that you'll need to make it at least 24 hours in advance because the ice cream mixture needs time to chill and develop it's flavor before putting in the ice cream maker.
Wanna search for unnecessary products with me and send them to our husbands?
