Boyfriend is out of town for the weekend, so I decided to take advantage of some me time.
I'm planning on moving in w/ SexyBeast in January and as such am taking a personal inventory of what I can and cannot bring into my new home. However, SexyBeast has been a bachelor for a good long while and he admittedly will not spend a lot of money on things he deems unworthy. For this reason, today I purchased a shower caddy, well it's really more of a pole thingy. I'll post more when I put it together. Also, have to bring coffee mugs because all he owns are travel mugs and 99% of the time they are in the dishwasher or in the sink. And up until last month he did not own a tea kettle. Well, my lovely SexyBeast got hit w/ a killer chest cold a few weeks ago and broke down to purchase a kettle. He settled on the cheap 4.99 one at Target. You get what you pay for my friends. I went to make him a cup a tea when was coughing his brains out and I spilt hot water on my hand.
Then I shot over from Bed, Bath and Friggin' Beyond to Marshall's, wherein I got my brother and sister-in-law their X-mas gift. I always get them gift baskets. Now you may think that lacks originality but there so many variations on the theme one could never tire of them. This year it's a tea/waffle/scone set. And I couldn't help myself and got a Life is Good long sleeve T-shirt. I reasoned the purchase that I only own 3 long sleeve T-shirts and needed another.
And finally I went to my local Gap outlet. I got a super cute outfit for my 3 year old niece on sale w/ an additional 30% off. With my savings I got 2 new sweaters and at the end of the day I saved 42 bucks.
I'll try to not let the trend continue this season of one gift for you and two for me. But we'll see....
