So I finally got one item off my list- HSN had the soda stream s the daily special and I was looking for one for b&s-in-law. Good price, free shipping.

My mom wants an apple TV , my DH says they are price fixed and never go onsale. We have a bus acct with a bunch of electroic vendors, distribs, even best buy and hhgregg so I can get tax free but that's it so far. Anyone know of any Apple sales for them, or a way to get at a dicount, like 15% off somewhere?

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Hey girls!! Christmas is:

8 WEEKS & 2 DAYS


or

58 DAYS AWAY!!


So,...how many of y'all are decorating yet?!!! I am holding out for after Halloween....then I have a meeting here Thursday night so there is no way it's getting done before then...I am thinking that next Monday...the 5th...I will be cleaning like a crazy lady this week and next weekend anyway in prep for our VACATION!!! So,. Monday when my Hubs is at work, I will start!!! It will take most of the day to do the tree, but then I can do the other stuff the next day,...I will leave my fall wreath on the door while we are gone, and our pumpkins outside,but when we come back it'll all get changed out,...I just want all the Christmas stuff finished inside so I don't have to do ANYTHING with it when we get back! Thats when I focus on our goody-basket-baking prep and gifts for friends ...also, my ds will be 17 that first week of December, so I have to get him to decide what he wants to do....
Anyhoo....it's getting pretty chilly down here this weekend!! Hope all of you are warm and cozy. And those of you in Sandy's path be safe and keep us posted if you can!!!

I've officially started shopping!

I was in urban outfitters and found a camera disguised as an orange juice box on clearance- it takes photos and has different weird effects on them. My sister loves photography, and I figured this would be a fun camera to add to her collection. The best part is it was on clearance for $10 from $34! I just need to get some film for it, now!

I put up one of my trees today! We are going to Disney in a few weeks and I won't have time. Don't know where the energy is from, but I'm behind in everything else.

Well add me to the list of every year I say I will cut back and every year I fail! In my defense we went through so many tearful Christmas mornings wishing we had a little one when we couldn't so now that we do it's just hard not to go overboard.

So DD2 has tucked away...
Bell Animator Doll
Little People Spaceship (70% off Target clearance)
Disney Princess Songs Book
Super Grover (70% off Target clearance)
Sneezing Ernie (70% off Target clearance)
Vtech ABC Classroom (70% off Target clearance)
Pink Bubble Mower
American Girl Bitty Baby
Disney Princess Leappad 2 Bundle
Huge Tinkerbell Coloring Book
Miss Spider Flashflight
A Rody (sooooo excited about this one!)
Bath crayon set

Then I picked up some stickers, glow in the dark stars, and toddler crayons for her stocking.

I really need to work on DH. He's tough!

Probably not going to start putting out Christmas stuff until after Thanksgiving. DH's family is coming so I'll have 7 extra people in the house. I have to move a chair to put up our new Christmas tree so will wait until most everyone leaves which will be the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Probably put the tree up then. Can't wait -- it's our first prelit one!

Meantime, anyone looking at the "I like" books, they are on sale. Retailmenot has a 40% off coupon! Going to go pick up a lip gloss making kit with a coupon I have so will have our niece on DH's side finally done. We also picked up some GCs at Costco for his parents so aside from some stocking stuffers, I am done with his parents! Whew! Only have left whoever we draw from the name draw on his side which will be on the 1st.

I am always amazed how folks can get their shopping done early. My kids don't even know what they want. (Dd 9 (will be 10 in a month) and ds is 5 (will be 6 in a month)). I did score a preorder on the Wii U this past Wednesday.

Dd had mentioned she would like the Wii U. In the end if she doesn't want it, I can return it or sell it to someone else.

So, if anyone has some great ideas, I would love to hear them.

I understand what you mean. My kids are already in the holiday mode with all the new toys out. But, I flipped this weekend when my dd who was nearly in tears wanting an AG doll said she changed her mind. Of course what she wanted was absurd but a perfect example of why I should save my receipts. I have a huge box full of AG I just ordered.

Today I bought her a smash book with the 50% coupon at Michaels. I'm hoping to be done with most of the kid stuff this week.

I can relate to this -- we had 8 of those Christmases before we finally got our DD2. This is the first year she will really appreciate Christmas and I am so excited I've been shopping for weeks already.

Our daughter turned 2 in July. So we are in the exact same boat
