Every single person that I have ever given them to has fallen in love with them. The adult size throws are really generous in size - they would cover a queen size bed (with no overhang) and they are so incredibly soft and just make you want to cuddle up. I have ordered them in various colors and all have been rich in color and they don't bleed when you wash them. They are kind of expensive to start with but I usually wait for a sale and it just so happens that on Cyber Monday, they will be 70% off!! Just use code cyber70 Also, they say allow 2-4 weeks for delivery because of the high demand but I have never once had it take that long

Thanks for the code those look heavenly!

Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day is 50% off select Melissa & Doug toys. There are some really good deals and M & D toys are very well made.

I have one more gift basket to order! The only hold up is getting my dh's aunt's address. With the way my dh's family is it could be New Year's before we get that address. So I'm declaring my mission to finish by Thanksgiving complete.

I just finished putting together an idea I had for the grandkids. I went to the craft stores on BF and bought wooden letters, small wooden shapes, paint brushes , smocks and acrylic paints. I also ordered some paintable cars, piggy banks, cupcakes, bugs etc from Oriental Trading, along with craft mats. I purchased a Craftsman tool box for DGS6 to put it in. Not sure yet what I will use for the girls boxes. My DD11 was excited and wants one too. AC moore has signs for $1 that say love, friends, etc and she loves to paint them ( and add glitter while the paint is wet)

Hope someone can use the idea.

Good job!! I feel like I'll never be done. I saw a great deal someone posted on the budget board today, joann.com has smash journals and accessories on sale and there's a free ship no minimum code on their home page. I picked up a journal and a bunch of accessories for DD16 for $23.xx.

I am so close to being done! I need an idea from DH's grandma, and I have to pick up some mock turtlenecks that FIL asked for, and then I'm done!

Today I bought FIL a salt sampler pack from World Market, on a whim...he fancies himself a good cook and is really into gourmet food, so I hope he'll appreciate it (though normally when I go out in a limb like this, it bites me in the butt). http://www.worldmarket.com/product/s...ler,+5+pack.do

Then for his girlfriend- she just retired a month ago and has several trips planned. But she isn't really a seasoned traveler. So I bought her a nice sleep mask, a clear toiletry bag + clear 3 oz bottles for getting toiletries through security, and a travel alarm clock. Hopefully she at least pretends to like it.

I got some good bargains at Walmart on Black Friday. It wasnt too crazy and things were all opened and ready to grab well before 8pm. We got everything we wanted, yea!

On Amazon I ordered DH a Xbox and Kinect with the 2 games and a 3 month gold subscription to Xbox live. Then today I found the Avengers Xbox game he wanted on Amazon for 29.99 vs. 49.99. I love bargains! I think I am going to get him an older version of Halo and Call of Duty and see which one he really likes before we spend 60 bucks on one he may or may not like. We have a Wii and a PS3, but we are new to Xbox.

My 3 year old is begging Santa for a jump house, and I found the Little Tikes Jump and Slide Bounce House at Walmart for 200. It was 220 I think at Toys R Us. I went to go buy it today and it was down to 180 at Walmart! Woot!!!
All I have to get her is an Our Generation doll and she is done.

My 9 year old is done with the exception of my (hopefully) big order at American Girl tonight. I am really hoping for some awesome deals.

My 11 year old is almost done but she is a few gifts behind. I may just get her a few extra AG things tonight so her and her sisters all have the same amount of gifts to open on Christmas. She is usually really easy to buy for but for some reason she is harder this year. I may get her the Project Runway Fashion design set at Toys R Us. I would love to get her a real full size dress manequin but man, they aren't cheap.

The baby is done. My kids have huge 3 1/2 ft. stocking and I only have a few small toys to put in hers. So..... Santa is bringing diapers and wipes and yogurt melts and things like that for her. Mean Santa......

My hubbys job finally released him so he could come home for a few days before he starts his new job. He is in Minnesota now, has to drive back here to Florida and be in North Carolina for work on Dec. 3rd! It will be busy but atleast we will be able to put the tree up as a family. 6 more months and we will be back together all under one roof. Its the BEST Christmas gift I could ever ask for. He travels for work and is away from home 7-9 months a year. At his new job he will be home every night. It is such a blessing!

Has everyone decorated yet and have their trees up?

Discovered this (http://shop.littlebits.com/) and had to share because it just seems like the coolest thing! Too bad I don't have anyone over 8 yrs old on my list!

We bought "Don't let the pigeon finish this activity book" for DD4 and our two nephews (6,4). We love Mo Willems!

And for our DD's birthday, we found a beginner's telescope for her since she loves to look at the stars.

Not quite done yet, but close. I really need to organize my lists to see how much I really have left.

Happy Almost Cyber Monday!

mother pucker -- tried to get stuff on the AG site's cyber monday sale (which started a couple minutes early). Tried to get 3 dresses. Had to go recheck out EACH time because each time I would get close to checking out, one of them would be sold out. I'd thrown in some stuff for my niece's birthday in July but really was after the outfits for my DD. Once those were gone, I was done. And I type 126wpm! Madness.

ETA: and under the "random yet happy" file, I just happened to check back. The formal dress which they were clearing out from last year had been "sold out" but when I went back, it was in stock. Uh, okay. Snagged it and now have a nice dress for one of her dolls from Santa. Woohoo!

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

Thank you!!! I just ordered the Holiday Kit ($40, but$61.36 once you factor in tax and shipping) for my 14 year old son.

If you're interested, order soon, since the my kit will ship from CHINA in 3 days.

I tried finding a coupon online, with no luck.
