Holiday Rush 2013

Its 7 days to go before Christmas. At last, my Christmas shopping is almost done. Just a few more gifts for friends and relatives and I'm done for this year. I have spent 4 straight days at the mall, scouring all the shelves for the perfect yet affordable gifts. Oh, make that 5 because I'm going back tomorrow for another day of braving through the jungle mall.  I really don't mind looking around. What I really hate about the holiday rush is the long lines to the cashier. With a kid in tow who loves to do her own window-shopping, waiting in line while keeping an eye on Zay is a tough feat. I'm glad that after all the running around, I had it all wrapped up and piled under the tree. 
Santa came early
I bought some toys and dresses for the kiddo. And guess what, she has opened one gift already! She cant wait for Christmas to play with her make up set. Well, I let her do her thing. Santa came early and Zay celebrated early,too.

For hubby, I bought a pair of shoes which he liked too much that he used it immediately last Sunday to church. He didnt let me wrap it anymore. He gave me a peck on the cheek, said thanks and was off with a bounce on his feet. I was left smiling and shaking my head. :)
Happy with his stash from Bench
And what did I have for myself? Nothing. I couldnt think of anything I want. When I went around the mall, there were a lot of sale going on and I bought stuff for my mom, my sisters and other loved ones. I even bought stuff for the house. Yet, I couldn't choose anything for myself. My solution? I went online, browse through White N" Khaki's albums and voila! I bought an Aeropostale shirt for myself.  I am as happy as a kid on Christmas morning. It truly doesn't cost much to make me happy. :) 
Go on! Check them out. They have a lot of great items on sale. In fact, I am thinking of getting myself something else from their online shop. ;)

Its 7 days to go before Christmas! And in the spirit of being early, I am now wishing you and your family a Happy Holidays!

  2. Happy holidays sis! ^_^

    Truly, in our country it is never enough to buy gifts only for our immediate family. Everyone in the extended family must be gifted, right down to the farthest degree cousin you could remember. Lol. That's why I look for affordable (but not cheap-looking) gifts too. While it is the thought that counts, it still feels so much better giving someone something they'll like without breaking the bank, right? ;)

  3. You sound so much like me. I usually buy everything for everyone else but I never get anything for myself. I can never find anything that I really love. I'll be gone for 2 weeks so stopping by now to say Merry Christmas. I have posts scheduled but won't be online. Give your little one a big hug from us!

  4. I hope you ended up having a great Christmas! I don't buy myself things very often either, nothing ever seems to scream 'buy me' to me :)
