    What a wonderful topic...brings back good memories. I don't remember everything but I do recall getting a new pair of glasses, I needed them desperately...I got a pair of Juicy Couture eyeglasses. Yup. I still have them 4 years later.

    Oh. And I distinctly remember buying a real Coach purse. I had always wanted one. Don't have it anymore, however.

    I graduate my lpn sept of this year and I plan on saving majority of my paycheck to move out of my parents house and the rest I am treating my parents to a few gift cards for helping me out a great deal, and I want to pamper myself with a trip to the spa, nailery, hair done, etc.

    I took about $250 and went shopping, which is something I NEVER do and then I put the rest in my savings. I had to treat myself for all the hard work!

    When I get my first job I plan on telling them I need 2 weeks to start. I then plan on going to Europe for 10 days that will be my treat. With my first check I promised myself new nursing school (The ones I wear now got me through CNA, Phlebotomy and now LVN school)

    Honey you're preaching to the choir. I have a mom, brother and man who I just can't repay enough. They have been there throughout c.n.a. school and l.p.n. school. They will be there throughout r.n. school as well
