Good morning and happy Wednesday! I hope this week has been going by smooth and quick for you all. It’s been pretty good over here so far and that is always a wonderful thing :)
Last night Regina and I cashed in the rain check for our shopping date that was put to a stop because of the truck battery not working. It seems to have worked out for the better though because we had an awesome time (well, I did and I think she had fun too!)
Honestly I didn’t even feel like going but the little ones were under my skin and I knew a break would be nice. When Aidan got home from work I hopped in the shower and we headed out shortly after.
Ugly sweaters for all..
We got some really super awesome gifts for really great deals. We also had a blast picking out “ugly” Christmas sweaters for everyone in the house. Regina and Marshal have an Ugly Christmas sweater day at school next week and Regina picked one out a few weeks ago but I wanted to get Marshal one, too. I hope he will get a kick out of it.
Last year Aidan’s family wore ugly sweaters on Christmas day but we didn’t know about it until a couple of days ahead of time so we were left out. Not this year! Our sweaters are the ugliest! Watch them not do it again this year.. We are still wearing them.
Regina and I decided that we want to get a picture of the six of us (and the cats!) in front of our humongous tree and send it out as a Christmas card. It would be hilarious! The only thing is finding someone to take the picture.
I’ve never once sent out Christmas cards. How funny would it be that the year I finally send them we are all wearing the most ridiculous sweaters ever? I really hope it works out.
Separate from the sweaters I lucked out 2 weeks ago and found the little boys adorable outfits that match to wear to the family party. I looked on a few sites butt had the best luck at Target. I had a gift card for $10 there and they had free shipping so for the two outfits it cost me $20. Yeah baby! They are adorable too complete with red ties featuring penguins! I can’t wait to see them in them!
Enough soaps, lotions and sprays for a year..
We also took advantage of using the coupons we had for Bath and Body works. We used three to get a total of 2 free items and $10 off. We also made use of the buy 3 get 2 free sale. All together we walked out with a combo of 9 body washes, lotions and sprays for like $40. Nice! I had also gone there on black Friday and used some coupons and got a ton of stuff, including a gift bag Regina had wanted. That trip was more expensive but I ended up with 2 candles, the bag and something like 8 washes, lotions and sprays.
Then in Victoria’s Secret they had buy one gift get one free. We had to take advantage of the coupons I had there in order to get a bra and a bag for free so we bought night gowns for each of us and a gift set of lotions. Then we got the other gift set, a bra and bag for “free” it cost $80 but I knew it would if I wanted to get the bag.
So.. We are stocked on smells goods and can give a set to each of my nieces. :)
Other really awesome deals..
I can’t divulge the other fantastic (really the best ones of the day) sale I took advantage of because it is for Aidan and he occasionally reads my blog. I know that’s why you finally started getting the painting done, dear — I love you! In any case I will try to talk about that after Christmas though it won’t do anyone any good. I’m just excited and I hope he will love what we got for him!
Okie doke (yes I really do say that) have a great day!
