Busy Day Today

January 8, 2013 Leave a comment


Today I spent the whole day taking my 90-year old uncle and 85-year old grandma out to lunch and the drugstore for their odds and ends. Then I spent the rest of the afternoon taking down the Christmas tree, the christmas lights, and cleaning the living room of all the pine needles. Ahhhh… Boy, do I wish I could have just done what Sasha did all day. This. LOL


Christmas Gifts

Got some really thoughtful gifts this year!! Loved them all!

One was a Hunger Games themed bracelet that has a quote from the book… The “real or not real” quote… Love it. (That was from Vanessa).

Another was a Clarisonic brush for my face. My sister bought this for me because I had been talking with her about skin care. And it was something I’d never buy for myself so I thought it was a nice present.

And another gift was from the BF and my other sister. It was a Garmin Forerunner runner’s watch. It keeps track of your heart rate, time, and distance. I can’t wait to try it out!!!

So grateful for all my gifts.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!! Hope you all had a wonderful one and got to spend time with loved ones!!!!

My brother, sister-in-law, and little nephew have been taking pictures for their yearly Christmas card for the past few years. This year, they decided to take it at the beach. What a beautiful day! And they got some beautiful shots! I can’t wait to see their card this year!

Today we bought out Christmas tree! It was $15 for a 3-5 foot tree!!! (Ours is about 5 feet. It looks really tall in the pic because we have it sitting on our coffee table in front of the picture window hahahaha)… City Mill in Kaimuki was honoring their Black Friday price on the following Monday since they actually didn’t get their trees in on.Black Friday! We just happened to want to pick it up on Monday and luckily, it was only $15!!!

Christmas Clearance

January 4, 2012 2 comments

I LOVE the holidays, and though I’m always sad to see the season come to an end, I AM happy to usher in some of the excellent store clearances that follow!

Yesterday night I went to Target, and they were having 70% off of their Christmas clearance items! Among the usual tissue paper and ribbon that I usually pick up for next year were a few -quirky- but useful items that I just HAD to pick up.

First were a couple of BIG super-sparkly stick-on ribbons. (You know, for those really big gift boxes that look absolutely stupid with a regular-sized stick-on ribbon on it.)

$.90 cents each!

Also, an assorted box of mini Knott’s Berry Farm jams! (Perfect for someone like my Grandma, who loves any kind of jam or jelly, but doesn’t want to buy full-sized jars of each!)

$1.79 per box!

Another Christmas clearance item that I picked up was a “valet tray“. Before last night, I had never heard of a valet tray. (It’s basically a men’s organizer to keep things like watches, cufflinks, keys, etc. all in one place.) I saw it and immediately decided to re-purpose it as an organizing tool for my computer desk.

$3.59 each

And when your computer desk looks like THIS:

Believe me, you’re gonna need something like that to get a little organized! Hahahaha…….

But I digress…

I also found some baking goods! Still good for the eating, but just ten times cheaper, AND it comes with extras!

$1.79 for the sugar cookie mix with snowman oven mitt & $1.79 for the snickerdoodle cookie mix with mini whisk!

$2.99 for a chocolate cupcake mix kit with Christmas carrier box, toppers, and sprinkles!

All of this for just about $15 bucks! Not too shabby, eh? 🙂
