So I started my Christmas shopping this weekend!! A friend and I shopped all day yesterday for decorations at TJ Maxx, Ross and Marshalls. I had the most luck at Marshalls and picked up some adorable things including 3 new reindeer figurines to add to the Reindeer Christmas 2008 decorating theme!! We had planned to go to Hobby Lobby but they were closed, so that is definetly on the agenda for later this week. Today I went shopping by myself for new winter clothes to take on my trip to Chicago next week. I did not find to much for the trip but I did get some goodies...A new sweater dress, a pair of wonderful work pants that I needed so badly, 2 pairs of shoes - a brown pair and a red gingham pair just for fun...total cost of the 2 pairs of shoes?? $28 at Rack Room Shoes!!, a beanie just like the one Elle Woods wore when she went with Paulette to get the dog back. I had seen the hat this weekend and put it down to think about it, a few minutes later I saw some lady had picked it up, I was so sad, but when I went back today it was there again :) so I snatched it up quick! I also got a pair of brown textured tights to wear with sweater dresses and another cute white button down with a skinny leopard print belt. So much fun stuff I cannot wait to wear!
Back to work tommorrow to finish everything up before the holiday. I work up until this Saturday and then am off for 9 days!!! I can't wait to go see my mom and stepdad in Chicago next week. And we are seeing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular!!!
I want to have my house in perfect order before I leave so that as soon as we get home we can start decorating. I will be doing laundry and organizing all week and then my fabulous Molly Maids come next Monday before we leave so that the house is ready for the Holiday overhaul the second our plane hits the ground back in Austin on Saturday! (Yeah right, we may be a little tired for that, but at least we can start Sunday morning...)
