I was starting to feel a little stressed about the upcoming Christmas season. I hadn't done a bit of shopping and didn't seem to have many ideas on what I should even be looking for. I am NOT a Black Friday shopper. That scene is NOT for me. I just KNOW I would be headlining the nightly news on every network as the shopper who got shanked while lining up outside of a Toys R Us at 4am in order to save $3 on a lego set. Yep, not that big of a risk taker. Plus, I firmly believe that as the big day draws closer, stores will do anything to get consumers through their doors with plastic in hand in order to move merchandise---including slash prices to Black Friday proportions. I FINALLY got some cooperation from a few people on my list and last night/this morning while working, I got busy on some websites and made an incredible dent on my list. EVERTHING was on sale, a few things at 50% off even and I got free shipping on every item I got. AND, by late afternoon today, I had gotten email confirmation that every gift I bought had left the warehouse and was on its way to me =) I still have to hit brick and mortar stores for some things, and I do that on a weekend shopping binge with my bestie during the first weekend in December. Starting to feel good about this years season now!!
Welcome to my blog! In our home there is my wonderful husband, we were married on New Years Eve a "few" years ago and it's been pure bliss since then! Arielle is the oldest--she's set to graduate from College this Spring!! Parker is the oldest of the boys--golf is his interest, so much so that he's playing for his College team. Next is Paxton, our sweet 9 year old who LOVES his trains & legos! Finally there is Beckett, the 7 year old goofball!
That leaves me, Colleen, author of this blog. I work full time in dentistry as a CDA/COA and just hit the 20 year mark at my job. I also attend nursing school at nights and on weekends--halfway there!! I enjoy decorating our home, hunting down a bargain, reading, stamping, crocheting and following my kids' interests!
