So many good scents!  This has been such a fun Christmas for both of us, and can I just make one proclamation?  This is the first Christmas in our 5 years of marriage that we have not put a single cent onto a credit card!!

See you next year!

The Twelve Dollars Of Christmas: Eleventh Day

Hello all!  Christmas has past BUT I haven’t done the last two days of P and I’s  12 dollars of Christmas gift exchange.

My gift to P:

Image

A laser pointer!  When he is not busy pointing at my naughty bits, he can keep the cat busy with this tool.

P’s gift to me:

Image

Goofy string…not silly string.  Sweet.

Thanks for reading!  I’m pretty sure if this was a competition I would win. #justsayin

We are officially in the home stretch of celebrating the 12 days of Christmas (dollar store edition).

My gift to P:

Image

An air freshener to keep P’s office (and Chewbacca) smelling fresh!

P’s gift to me:

Image

Lip gloss!  Haven’t had anything like this since I was a kid, so a bit of nostalgia for a dollar is a great gift!

Hope all of you are done with your Christmas shopping and thanks for stopping by!

Dress socks!  Excuse the blurriness of the photo and the messy background.  Took this photo around 5 A.M. in the midst of wrapping Christmas presents.

P’s gift to me:

Image

A scratch off ticket!  Didn’t win anything, but it was fun while it lasted!

Thanks for reading!

The Twelve Dollars Of Christmas: Eighth Day

The eighth day of our 12 dollars of Christmas challenge has come and gone so I better get to blogging about it. So here it goes:

My gift to P:

An Avengers towel!

Just add water.

P’s gift to me:

 Some foot powder just for me because apparently my “feet stink”.  Sure my feet stink, if “stink” now means smells like a unicorn in a field of roses.

Thanks for reading!

The Twelve Dollars Of Christmas: Seventh Day

Seven has always been my favorite number, so I was especially excited about this particular day of our 12 days of Christmas (dollar store edition).

My gift to P:

Image

Since P is a tech guy, we have a LOT of electronics.  What does any electronic device need every once in awhile?  A good wipe of course, and a good wipe they got indeed!

P’s gift to me:

Image

CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE CAT LOVER’S SOUL?!?!?!  Come on.  I love MY cat, but I don’t want to read stories about other people’s felines.  However, I may read this in 20 years when I make the full transition to a Crazy Cat Lady…thanks P.

Check back in tomorrow!

The Twelve Dollars Of Christmas: Sixth Day

Well there was definitely a theme to our sixth day of exchanging dollar store finds.  Let’s see if you can figure it out:

My gift to P:

A million dollar bar for a buck?!  Now that is one heck of a deal!

P’s gift to me:

A “gold” dollar chain…hmmmmmm.  Thanks.  I now have an accessory to rock when I make it as an awkward girl rapper by the name of “2%”  (because I’m milky white with some fat reduction).

Well the theme was pretty obvious:  Money!  Here is hoping for a very “frugoal” 2014!

Thanks for reading!

The Twelve Dollars Of Christmas: Fifth Day

The fifth day of exchanging gifts went AMAZING!  You guys will be so jealous when you see what P got me, but first let me reveal what treasure I got for him for our fifth day of  our 12 days of Christmas.

My gift to P:

Image

P loves all things double A (and I’m not talking about my chest size, though he loves those double AAs too).

P’s gift to me:

Image

A new car!!!  Granted it isn’t life size, but it is the thought that counts.

Thanks for reading!

The Twelve Dollars Of Christmas: Fourth Day

My brain is dead today (is it Friday yet?) so I will skip any sort of clever intro and just reveal our fourth dollar store presents we exchanged last night.

My gift to P:

Image

 Who doesn’t want to snap into a Slim Jim?  Another food related gift, but I inadvertently shot myself in the foot.  There is a code for Battlefield 4…GREAT…just what P needs: a further excuse to, as he puts it, “game it up”.  Damn you Slim Jim.  Damn you.

P’s gift to me:

Image

A cute little teddy bear, which my cat is getting to know.  Adorable!

Thanks for reading!

The Twelve Dollars Of Christmas: Third Day

Almost a week away until the big day!  Hope it is a holly and jolly one for all of you!  Instead of 3 French hens, P and I celebrated the third day of Christmas by exchanging dollar store gifts and this is what we ended up with:

My gift to P:

Image

P loves his butterfingers, and what my baby wants my baby gets (couldn’t even type that with a straight face).  How could I lose with this fun size 6 pack of crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery goodness for just a buck?

P’s gift to me:

Image

Saaaaweeeet!  A 5×7 picture frame!  My desk at work is pretty bare so I may need to fill up this frame with a photo of the fam.  Then again, the family that is already in the frame looks so delightful, maybe I will just keep this picture instead…

Thanks for reading!  Now go do something Christmasy, like roasting some chestnuts on an open fire.
