Christmas Shopping!

Today was one of my big shopping days! It's so weird to be Christmas shopping in November (for me anyway) but with only three weeks until my due date, I had to get some stuff done.

Brandon's list is basically done. I love it! I'm just missing a couple little things for his stocking, but I'll get those soon. I had to wait to go shopping until today because a very special present wasn't available until today. Oh, I wish I could tell you guys, but I can't risk it if he decides to check out my blog! I just can't wait another month for him to open his presents, he'll be so happy.

I also did some shopping for Baby Girl! Let's hope she comes BEFORE Christmas, right? I bought some cute fuzzy booties, a snuggly blanket, and four special baby board books to start her library.

My favorite things I wanted to buy her? Some B. blocks and a Leapfrog Violet puppy dog! The dog is programmable to say her name (whatever that is) and the blocks are soft and squeak. I've been waiting to buy stuff like this! I just needed a baby :P

So I wandered around Target for awhile trying to find other stuff, like ornament hooks. Seriously, I spent the majority of my time searching for those damn hooks. Finally an employee showed me - they were on a bottom shelf. What a dumb place lol. Luckily, they were right underneath the tree toppers, which I also couldn't find.

Did I tell you guys we found a new Christmas tree at a garage sale? $15 and I have a new, fluffier tree! I'm so excited to put it up on Friday. I have all kinds of decorations ready to go up!

What else did I buy... I was there for so long, my brain is fuzzy. Oh, I got Winston some toys for Christmas, but nothing for Dexter yet. He'll get his presents soon!

I still have more stuff to get but I'm feeling better and better about it all. I love giving gifts!


  1. sounds like you had a lot of fun shopping! i'm w/ you - i love buying presents, brings a smile!! : )

  2. I have those blocks and my daughter loves loves loves them!! She is 7 months old now and the whole teething part and these really help!! Plus they squeek!! :)

    Congrats on the baby girl!!
