After running aroung all morning doing errands, I decided to start my Christmas shopping. I know what I want to get everyone and *almost* everything I can get from the store where I am working (seasonal).
So, where did I go first, Marshall's. I don't work at Marshall's, but I went there anyway. I found some cute things for some swap pals and such, but alas, I did not pic up *one* thing from my Christmas list.
What I did pic up, however, was this.
And the price was a whopping $7.00. Yes, I know. Seven Bucks. I've been wanting to get books 1,2,and3 for the longest, but didn't want to spend $29.95 on them. I thought this was going to be the best deal all day.
Then, I went to Borders. I had a gift card and figured, hey, maybe I'll find something there off my Christmas list. I found this buried in the knitting section. The Borders that I go to never has the books I want. I usually find them at AC Moore or Micheal's. I have been wanting to knit the mittens and baby cardi from this book for a while, but I couldn't find it anywhere.
I shopped a little more, but left with more swap gifts and nothing off my Christmas list.
After that, I was tired, so I went to the grocery store. I needed lettuce to make my "Olive Garden" salad. Afetr figuring out what I wanted for dessert, I picked up this.
If you like candy canes, you'll love this ice cream. I haven't had it since last December and by the time I went back for more, they were all gone. BTW, the ice cream was 50% off too!
After all my hard work and all the things I purchased today, not *one* iten from my Christmas list came home with me. I guess I'll have to shop another day!
