I have to admit I'm a little ready for a change in the seasons. I used to not embrace the change from summer to fall with such excitement, but once you are no longer the one boarding the back to school bus...things change.
I'm ready to buy some pumpkins for the porch, open my windows and enjoy the smell of cool air, put on a sweater, eat my weight in mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving and then decorate the Christmas tree.
Can you sense I'm a little past ready?
Well, I must confess I'm in full preparation mode...I've begun the ole' Christmas shopping. Oh, yes ma'am this girl has her game face on. I like to kind of pace it, buy gifts here and there as I go down the list and that way come December instead of losing my sanity in aisle 4 of Target I'm sitting on my couch devouring Christmas goodies and littering my brain with Lifetime's finest Christmas movies. I usually have then by December just a few gifts here and there to buy. It also isn't a huge junk of change being blown all at once which makes Boy a big fan of the plan.
So operation Christmas sanity shopping began a few weeks ago. My sweet neighbor told me about this Mattel toy outlet. I had never heard of such things, so I loaded up and headed out to a Barbie wonderland. Oh, how I miss my Barbies...is that sad? Friends I was mad women on a Barbie and Dora mission loading up my cart and get this I got a $100 worth of toys for $40 bucks. Oh yes, victory was mine.
Now I just have to remember where I put all the gifts.
Anyone have any good ideas for gifts this year?
