    I need to completey re-wardrobe my oldest child. He's out-grown everything in the last few days. His clothes fit him LAST WEEK!!!!! Now everything's an inch too short.

    I also need a new computer desk and a new washer and dryer. I'm holding off on the washer and dryer till after Christmas (taking it all over to my parents' house...they have those monster sized machines that will fit 25 oversized towels in a single load, and I get a break on my electric and water bills :D). One of these days I want just ONE week when nothing breaks or needs replacing.

    Today I bought one of those things where you can plug in a million different electronic things so I don't have to keep unplugging and plugging in all the gaming systems and the dvd player. I also bought cake rounds and cake boxes...I'll be transporting couple of things to my jobs, so I needed stuff to carry them in, and I'll also be baking a lot, and needed the cake rounds to put them on...I'll run out of dishes if I don't have the cardboard variety.

    What do we do on this thread? Just list any old thing we buy?

    I just bought dry kidney beans, Biore Acne Cloths, and some generic Clearasil. Top that for excitement.

    I am also in the process of buying a house. Hopefully will close on it this week...especially since it needs a little work before I can move in and I have to be out of my apartment by Dec. 22nd....otherwise my stuff goes to storage and I have to move back to my parents house temporarily....Oh and I am going to buy a flat panel tv also because my hopefully new house has a really small living room(and this all depends on if I get the house...

    I plan to get some new makeup VERY SOON. Prescriptives has custom blended foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly. Plus, they can create the consistency & type you want (light, medium, or heavier coverage, dewy, matte, etc.)

    Has anyone tried this yet?

    No, I haven't tried that.

    I just went to the dentist. No charge so I didn't technically buy anything.

    I did buy a Star Wars toy off of E-bay this morning. So there you go. Nothing exciting again!

    I didn't go to bed until 2am. I'm getting ready to leave pretty soon to the mall, then going to the gym to work off what I ate yesterday. I'll be reporting what I bought later! :D

    I'm looking to buy this watch, but there's only 999 pieces made world wide! I'm a math teacher so this is totally the watch for me. It should be around $2,000; but I think considering the brand and the limited edition time piece from Fortis; it's worth it!

    I love the watch, but could never spend that much money. I do have a clock where the numbers are all angle measures in radians :D

    I got 4 more razor scooters, a star wars basketball thingie (one of those ones that are small versions of arcade basket ball games), a hot wheels loop de loop track with more cars, bike accessories, a barbie hair styling bust thing, two pogo sticks, a guitar, a new SCUBA reglator, three pairs of jeans and an 11 foot christmas tree. I think that was everything...there might have been more...not sure.

    Nice guys! :) Fortunately, I have no one to buy gifts for, so everything I buy is for ME! My BF never expects anything, but we always have gotten each other something. I think our gift to each other this time is taking each other to an amusement park, where the admission price is a $10 gift to donate.

    The only thing I bought myself on Black Friday was a muffin and cup of tea at Dunkin Donuts :)

    Oh, does wrapping paper for my homeroom door decorating contest count?

    Thanks! :) No, sorry I don't. If I were you, I'd go on their site, call the cust svc #, tell them you nev got a $20 off coupon like other people you know & see if they can give you a promo code. With this coupon, you don't hv to spend a certain amt to get the disc! Also, this one started 11/6, but doesn't exp until 2/28. At least try it. I hope you can get it. Don't know how long the FREE shipping will last though.

    I see, blessedhands.
