What I Want This Fall 2014

First day of November has arrived and hope you all had a scary and safe Halloween!  I was a bit of a Halloween scrooge this year and opted to stay home and get snuggles from the Hubby and furry babies and watch the first season of American Horror Story on Netflix (it’s interesting).

It occurred to me this morning that I have failed you guys over the last few months with the blatant absence of my “Three Things I Want” posts for the months of September and October.  So here is my virtual wish list for this fall of all things I would LOVE to have if I wasn’t in that pesky credit card debt. (Note to Santa:  Christmas is next month and I have been a very good goodish girl this year).

1.  Throwback Yoga Pants!  Loved “Jem and the Holograms” as a kid and these pants for any workout are indeed truly outrageous.  Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

2.  A warning cry.  I actually couldn’t find a place where this sign was available for purchase, so this could actually be a DIY project this fall.  Our cat is indeed an asshole and our wine glasses which were once an army strong of about a dozen has now depleted to just two surviving soldiers.  I love my Orville but he is one furry jerk.

3.  A holiday decor addition with sass.  Who doesn’t love “A Christmas Story”.  I have always wanted a full sized version of the infamous leg lamp to add to my Christmas decorations.  Someday it will happen, but for now a girl can dream.

4.  Cold weather Seahawks gear.  The Hawks have not been playing up to expectations this year BUT I still love them.  I have my jersey but the weather is getting colder.  Time to bundle up and still show my support for the boys.

5.  A quirky bookshelf.  There is no better way to spend a rainy fall day then curled up with a book.  All of my books are in boxes out in the garage so it’s time to give them room to breathe in a beautiful bookshelf.  Here are just a few ideas that are beyond clever!

The Casino Hangover

908f7cbe83e513d709f96b040a7a4ac626989e5b203612536600f2f70c4841ecLast night we made the horrendous mistake of going to celebrate the Fourth of July at a casino.  Everyone lost their money, except for me.  I broke even in the eleventh hour.  One spin won me my $120.00 dollars back 5 minutes before the fireworks started…

Relief.

However, I will say that one always suffers from a casino hangover once you lose your ass or if you break even.

My casino hangover was in full swing today!  Will definitely be avoiding the casino until my credit card debt is gone.  Though I lucked out last night, I fear that when it comes to gambling the house always wins.

Have a fabulous night and see you for an all new post tomorrow!

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!

Goofy string…not silly string.  Sweet.

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!

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:

IMAG0351_1

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 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!
