Happy Holidays!

First of all, let me say I wholeheartedly apologize for being MIA the past week or so.  It's been so busy around here!  I've been trying to finish up Christmas shopping and getting things ready for the holiday.  Somewhere in there my blog went all wacky and I lost a bunch of things as well as my backgrounds, etc.  Please bear with me while I try to get it back to where we were!

Secondly, I have many posts to cathc up on, but most importantly I have to post about my AWESOME Secret Santa partner and all the loot they sent me! I got a HUGE box yesterday. Many thanks to Georgie and Amy for hosting the Santa swap this year.  They put a lot of hard work into it, and it shows!  I promise to have pics up of my awesome stuff up this evening!

Thirdly, I have not wrapped ONE gift for my family yet!  ARGH!  I finished all the wrapping for "adopted" children and my best friend's family, but none for mine.  I have a feeling tonight is going to be an all nighter.  Any volunteers to help?  Also, have I mentioned I HATE wrapping gifts?  I think I'll stop by Dollar Tree and clean them out of gift bags!  :)

How Did You Do?

How did you make out on Black Friday? Were you able to cross a few more gifts off your list? I enjoyed shopping yesterday, and if it weren't for the fiasco my husband witnessed outside the Toys R Us store he was at it would have been excellent!

We started Black Friday early this year by having my husband stand outside TRU starting at 7pm Thanksgiving evening in preparation of their midnight opening. We really wanted to get our kids the Zhu Zhu pets that are so widely sought after, but very hard to find. We met that goal by a third as they limited each family to only one Zhu Zhu hamster. I'm still short 2, but I hope that I am able to find them again before Christmas. If anyone finds any extra, could you let me know?

After Russ came home from TRU and the chaos that ensued, I got ready to head out. I went to Old Navy at 3am, then onto Walmart, Gordman's, Hallmark, Bath and Body Works, Walgreens and finally Lowe's. After all that, we decorated outside for the kids and called it a night. I was in bed by 8pm last night. Whew!

I hope your Black Friday was just as great! Let me know what you got!

What's your Black Friday Plan?

Black Friday is THE day of deals for all the bargain shoppers out there. What's your plan for the day? What stores do you plan to hit? What do you plan to buy? Are you one of those people that couldn't be paid to get out of bed at 3AM on Black Friday?

There are several things I have my eye on for this Friday. Mostly things for the kids this year. Sadly, there isn't a large screen TV on doorbuster anywhere that strikes Russ's fancy. So, I'll be out shopping alone with Starbucks!

Check out the preview ads here for Black Friday.

Look What I Got!

I went to the flea market today. I know that may make some of you cringe, but seriously, I LOVE it! You never know what you'll find there, and I usually walk away with some of my favorite items. Today was no exception. I ran into a young lady by the name of Allison. Allison owns a company called Designer Vinyl. She personalizes everything from Christmas ornaments to drink tumblers to wooden plaques! Everything she has is absolutely beautiful. Not to mention her prices are VERY reasonable. Please check her out here on Facebook. She has pictures and prices of most of her work. She will also be at the next flea market at Shelby Farms. The dates for that are December 5th and 6th. Just in time for the holidays! You can also contact Allison via email at: If you don't see an item you'd like, just ask!

Super AWESOME Ground Beef Deal!

Remember when I told you about the ~HOT~ .50/1 ground beef coupon here? Well, I was finally able to use it to score BIG over the last week!

This coupon is still valid through 11/27/09, so keep your eyes peeled for good deals!.

Total Before Coupons: $45.00
Money Spent: $9.00
