It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year



It has to be a miracle. An early Christmas miracle. Because I just bought my first Christmas present! I'm not an early shopper. In fact, up until a few years ago I did most of my shopping on Christmas Eve Day. But the last few years I have started shopping earlier and earlier. The sheer number of nieces and nephews and aunts and uncles causes me serious anxiety if I have to shop for them all at once. But I don't think I've ever bought anything earlier than November. This is a complete upset! But I saw just the thing I wanted to get at just the right price in just the right place, so I went for it. And it feels so good.

Oh, and if you want to know who is the lucky recipient of my first Christmas present of the year....her name starts with N and ends with Icki.

Want to get in line for the next present? Leave a comment and let me know what you want for Christmas this year. You just might get it.

I am first in line Whoo hoo!


I want happiness for all!

I never shop till the end of the year.. I know I should do some earlier, but I am lazy! (and the kids changed their minds like 80 times)

have a great weekend!

Yay for me! This is hilarious because I was seriously going to email you today about which of Jennie's kids we're buying for because I saw some things I wanted to get now :)

I am starting to think about Christmas too. I like to buy stuff for myself and no one else.

You seriously buy presents for all nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins? That's kind of...expensive.

I want some soap. ;)

I want a fascinator http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30188083 which seems totally contrary to my personality because I am a jeans and tee girl. But they have captured my heart.

I like this tee too http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_7&listing_id=25645067&ga_search_query=bird&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5364229

And this is only a small portion of my list :) I love to browse!

Yay---Jennie---I agree with the lipo! But I will settle for my favorite Santa gift---a gift certificate to H&M, my favorite store!
