    I just put together 24 little gifts for my mother's Christmas calendar. She's alone so she really enjoys the attention .

    I have spent so much money is the past week! And not a single gift... :whistle:

    Electronics, makeup, home goods, clothing, a purse (rare purchase for me!), and the list goes on. We don't really do Christmas, but it sure has felt like Christmas around here!

    I went to a Scentsy party and bought a few things for myself. I never buy anything for ME so this was a real treat! Plus, I had fun at the party with a nice group of ladies. It was a lovely evening!

    I bought a cordless phone (first time I've had a land line in over ten years), gray blazer and two pairs of skinny jeans. The jeans are to wear under boots.

    Our new kitchen table was delivered yesterday! We had trouble finding one that was homey and cozy, so we ended up ordering one from a Canadian company that will take special orders and you can pick the features. I love it!

    I redeemed my loyalty points at the drug store today--there were some great sale prices!

    Regular prices: $311.83
    After sale discount: $211.75
    Loyalty rewards: $210.00
    Total paid (including taxes): $29.28!

    I bought almost all of my stocking stuffers, some fragrance and makeup for Lauren, and have enough body wash, hand soap, deodorant and toothpaste to last a long time!

    Christmas presents!!! I think I'm nearly done!

    I also bought an entertainment unit and a floor lamp for my new place. Today while I was buying clothes for the men in my family I picked up a blouse for me - 80% off.

    Today I went shopping for me using Kohls cash and a gift card. I bought a pair of jeans, four sweaters, a blouse, a long sleeve layering tee, and a spring shirt which may have to go back. I am not sure I like the way it fits (or how it is supposed to fit for that matter.)

    I'm going shopping on Saturday. I have to meet with my ex's psychologist, and I'm going to shop while I'm in town. I'm definitely going to the European bakery, and I have my eye on this dress at Macy's.

    I bought myself my own laptop! I'd been using my work laptop for EVERYTHING! I'd get so frustrated because there were things that I couldn't do on it, i.e. iTunes, use the USB cord for my Kindle or phone. I wanted to download a font that I got from TpT, but I couldn't because I don't have an administrative password.

    Ima, I need to know how you made your avatar. I love that you can change the clothes and the background but still look like you.

    It's from meez.com. I need to change mine again now that Christmas is over. Unfortunately it doesn't work on the iPad. I have to get out the laptop.

    What is this website exactly? I have looked it over briefly. It almost looks like an avatar facebook thing.

    New glasses! I've had my current ones since high school (12 years--I didn't realize it had been that long until I actually thought about it at the eye doctor yesterday). I'm allergic to nickel, and the last time I picked out frames the plastic ones were NOT stylish at all, so I had to get an expensive titanium pair, and there weren't many choices for me. I had a lot of fun trying them on yesterday, and found a pair that I really love. It will be strange to get used to a new look, though!

    After 12 years it will be quite a change, but you will love it! Have fun playing with your new fashion accessories!

    I'm impressed! My eyes change every 2-3 years. It used to be every six months. I'd never make it 12 years.

    Ima, my vision changed quite a bit but has slowed down. In fact, my prescription has been reduced two times now over the years.

    Well, I guess my most recent purchase was today. I went to a consignment clothing store for the very first time and found a cute skirt to wear to work. It had some fraying on the zipper and I asked if I could get a few dollars knocked off. She gave me 10% off, fine with me! :) I can't wait to check out the other consignment shops in town!

    I had been trying to find a pair of ivory opaque tights or lightweight leggings to go with a cobalt blue sweater dress, and I found nothing!

    I've been to multiple stores in three cities. Finally ended up with a gold pair of tights. A little flashier, but they work.

    I moved into a different house over the break so I have been buying lots of "house stuff" - everything from eggs to lightbulbs to door mats.

    That reminds me! There is a consignment shop not 5 minutes from my house! I have not been to it yet but I keep meaning to check it out. Maybe on my break in february I will have time to look around. It looks big from the outside so I want to give myself time to look at everything since the sign says they have clothing, books, antiques, etc.!

    The only thing I have bought myself recently was a kettleball set to kickstart my new years work outs! It is fun and the 11 minute video actually made me sore the next day. I must be really out of shape LOL
    Today is a busy day for errands, going out to lunch with mom and sister, and looking for some new and interesting K-cups. I did not like the last box I got (Donutshop regular) :mad:

    Went shopping with Lauren yesterday and bought a blouse and a cute bright blue fitted jacket. (How fun to not feel out of place in the stores she liked shopping in!) I'm heading out to Kohls this morning--hoping to find some good deals!

    No, none near me.

    I don't have any clothing store in my town, but I've been to the next two closest towns. One is a major city. I drove 50 miles to get there.

    Most places didn't even carry what I needed at all. The few that did were sold out or didn't have my size. It's been frustrating! I think I looked at the Hue website, and those were sold out. I'm going the gold a go today. If I not like them, I'll have I order those you posted. Thanks!

    My glasses came in on Friday, so I was able to pick them up after school. I really like them, but I'm still not used to the thicker frames--I keep thinking I've left my sunglasses on! I did have new lenses put in those old frames once or twice. My eyes couldn't get much worse, so it's a good thing they haven't changed in a while. They used to, but they leveled off when I was in college.

    Went to Kohl's yesterday looking for new sunglasses that fit over the glasses. They had one rack with 3 lonely pairs on it. Apparently, no one else buys sunglasses in January! I did find a pair at Target though.
