Hope all you Americans had a happy Turkey Day!
PS. My Pumpkin Dump Cake was a smashing success.
I'm one of those anal types so right after dinner on Thanksgiving, I got a notepad and pen out so I could ask and write down Christmas suggestions for my family.
Of course, this is the year, I made a list of possible gift ideas for myself and NOBODY ASKED ME WHAT I WANTED FOR CHRISTMAS.
So in case any of my family/friends are reading this and need some help with their shopping, I thought I'd post my list here. :)
THINGS I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
* one of those perfect portion batter dispensers for cupcakes and muffins
*a new chips and salsa bowl
* a salad spinner (yes, there is a food trend here)
*socks to wear with jeans (OK, this list is boring me now)
*a travel toiletry kit (one I can also hang up in the bathroom)
Honestly, the list looked more exciting when I first wrote everything down.
But these are things I truly want/need. (I gave my hubby a list too;one that was a bit more extensive and included a laptop)
He told me to just go buy my own. Well. You don't have to tell me twice.
So the next day I actually went shopping on BLACK FRIDAY.
My way of also helping the economy.
You're welcome. :-)
I actually had a bad sleep Thanksgiving night because I had a cup of coffee after dinner at my brother's house and I think the caffeine ruined me. So I had NO trouble getting up at 4AM on Friday to head down to Staples. But I scored a laptop for $299 and a printer for $39.
Not too shabby. Then I headed to the mall.
I'm a little more than halfway done my shopping now, which is crazy productive of me. And it's not even December yet!
How about you?
Did you go out Black Friday?
Have you done any Christmas shopping yet?
