Merry X-mas to Me

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....

I do the same thing! "Oh, I'll get that for so-and-so...and lookie! I'll just get that for me!" Ha ha. I'm trying to be more disciplined this year though.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who shops before Turkey Day for Xmas gifts!

I just went to the Lindt store and they had clearance candies. Some of them may make it to become Xmas presents.
