Rootbeer extract. We're looking forward to making homemade rootbeer soda.
Don't forget the ice cream.
Started my Christmas shopping. Bought both of my children a Wii U deluxe set.
I guess it is deluxe because it costs more and has a couple of extra plastic pieces. It was actually worth it because the sets came with the games they each wanted.
Ugh...Christmas shopping? Is it here already? Maybe I can get everything done on-line. Here's hoping!

I was browsing through The Container Store earlier today and got some adorable Christmas themed treat bags I'm sure I'll find a use for.

I bought a large military tactical backpack, a knife, a compass, a Mylar blanket, and a water purification system.
I'm upgrading my bug-out bag.
Nice! My sister preps. She has a whole water purification system, food, etc. I've wanted to start something, but don't even know where to begin. I think a plan for water would be the most logical starting point. I live in the desert and we had a water contamination issue a few years back, and it caused major panic and chaos.
My BF is a survivalist prepper. I'm more of a "keep myself okay for a few days until I find help" prepper. LOL
He is helping me get more organized with what I already had. I live less than 10 miles from a government nerve gas storage facility. Our area also gets natural disasters like tornadoes and floods. We have had earthquakes, but they aren't common.
I have to be able to shelter in place or evacuate.
An animal print dress from Dress Barn, on sale
New towels for guest bathroom...

We bought a house tonight! So until we sell ours, we have 2. I am excited and overwhelmed all at once!
Some plaid pants and two tops,
A pair of Ralph Lauren jeans.
Dh and I are shopping for a small sectional couch this weekend.
2015 Kia Sportage in dark grey with black/grey interior
We racked up some points on my hubby's credit card! Got 3 pairs of boots, 2 dresses (one for Thanksgiving and another one maybe for Christmas). Went to craft fair and got a pretty ruffled scarf and some locally made lotions.
Some Christmas shopping, including a new TV for our daughter.
Bought some Bath and Body Works goodies, most I'll keep while some will be part of a Christmas gift. On a whim I bought some cozy slippers from Vera Bradley.
While I was out with my mom today I found a Betsy Johnson purse I loved. Mom asked for a blender a few weeks ago so I picked one up at Wal-Mart. Tis the season!
Tomorrow I will be hanging out with my nephew so I will ask him what he wants for Christmas! Then I can start shopping!
I went to a Christmas craft and gift show today and picked up some gifts--glass ball ornaments with origami cranes inside, a t-shirt for my son and a beautiful wooden serving tray for my sister and brother-in-law.

I went to one also but only bought 2 things for myself. My husband was with me and I will have to go alone to the next one on December 7th to look for gifts because he is too difficult to shop with :lol:
It would be my husband's worst nightmare to go to a craft show! I went with a couple of friends from work.
The craft show, called The Harvest Festival, is in my area every early Dec & I go about every other year. My BF happens to love going w/ me.
A fanny pack at the thrift store... it's an inside joke gift for a friend.

So . . . why did my post go to a moderator? Strange.
Nov 29, 2014
- Origins Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Bright Skim Illuminating Cleanser & Moisturizer
- Michael Kors sunglasses
- Jockey panties
- Zip-down fleece sweatshirts...BF got for my parents
- FM goodies: guacamole, salt-free lemon herb seasoning, swiss cheese, & jalapeno spread
Went to the drug store/pharmacy today to pick up stocking stuffers and to stock up on some essentials. Took advantage of sale prices and redeemed loyalty points --almost $190 worth of stuff for less than $20 (most of that was taxes).
I bought two really cute pairs of shoes. Tried posting pictures, but it was sent to the moderator on Wednesday. Oh, well . . . they're cute anyway.
I also bought a 7" Kindle Fire HD for my mom. She doesn't own a television or a cell phone, much less anything else electronic. This should be interesting.
I figured out that Wal-Mart was offering the best deal on iPad mini. I ordered one for $219. It's a classroom investment.

Weird your pics got moderated?
Could you post links?
I bought myself a new Miche shell with snowflakes as an early birthday gift!

I tried it again, and the same thing happened. Boo.
I got a message that I had to wait 15 seconds between posts, but it was my first post. Then I tried again in 15 seconds and it went to the moderator again.
Maybe this will work.
And these. I was looking for something more substantial than a regular pump, but less than a boot.
$145 worth of stuff at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Big Lots, Target, & Walmart:
- gift wrap & some unique bows
- goodies to add to my parents' Christmas present medley
- gift boxes
- Walmart gift cards
The day ended w/ a nice lunch at Souplantation. I haven't been there in a while!
I have decided I MUST get to Trader Joe's before Christmas!! I am having Christmas dinner at my house this year and I really want to have some TJ goodies!! My last day of work is the 18th so unless there is bad weather I definitely have time to go (too bad it's 100 miles round trip ).
Nice shoes, Ima I especially the tan bow ones!
Picked up GORGEOUS black and white photo on canvas dh and I ordered for our anniversary....plus Christmas photo cards.
I haven't been to TJs in a while either & plan to go one day next week.

A plane ticket to bring my daughter home for Christmas! We usually pick her up, but she's going to spend a few days at her boyfriend's (which is 4 hours in the opposite direction). Can't argue with less than $100!
