I am so not a crowded mall shopper. Plus this year was so ridiculously difficult, we are heading to Memphis on the 28th to celebrate New years and go to the Liberty Bowl ( I know I have mentioned this like a zillion times already but I am excited about it) and on the way back from there we will be stopping in Waterloo to hit the Premium Outlets so me and my brilliant ideas said ” That should be our Christmas present to each other the trip and a shopping spree” Sounds like a perfect plan right, well we did decide we would exchange presents but could only spend 100.00 on each other ( I know first world problems) Dang it, it si tough to shop with only 100.00 and that includes Santa Stocking stuff. I mean seriously people The Walking Dead Vol 9 is 40.00. gonna look pretty pathetic under the tree ( and now I am slapping myself because that sounds so materialistic and so not what the meaning of Christmas is all about so I will shut up now OK.
Tonight at the Church Service I will now be praying I do not get struck down for all my selfish materialistic thoughts.
First Christmas without the Boys so it is feeling a little strange to say the least, but we do have a friends daughter coming to spend the holidays with us as she cannot get home to her parents in Thunder Bay this year, so yea we have borrowed a kid for the holidays. ( So I have been having fun picking up little surprises for her so she will feel like Santa has not forgotten her).
Today I decided I would go into the office to spend a few hours cleaning up, there are two of us here, good lord it is quiet but it has allowed me to clean up a few files before the Holidays.
Temperature has dropped to -23 again, damn cold so I wanted to dress for the season but for the temperatures, few link ups today are all about Christmas Parties and I am sure I have posted more appropriate Christmas Party Outfits here, here or here but it is what it is. Christmas Plaid and a little fur, with some pearls thrown in for good measure.
