Black Friday? Cyber Monday? Pish, what are those? Even when things are on sale, I still cringe at most of the prices and start to hyperventilate when I see that my total breach any number larger than $10.
I mean, I know myself well enough to admit that if money was something that grew on trees in our back yard, I probably wouldn't think much of filling up my shopping cart full of, well, everything!
And yes, I do spend money on frivolous things. But I still have a mighty inner battle of wants VS needs. You never know who's going to win either.
I did go to Kohls the other day and spend $3.58 and a shirt and a pair of pants. I saved $77! I thought that was a pretty good deal. The only true deal I can think of to boast about.
So here I sit at my computer, knowing that there are probably some great deals out in the cyber world today, but I haven't bothered to look. Because right now, the battle for needs has conquered over wants.
And I'm secretly bummed about it. But don't tell anyone I said that.
Anyhow... We had a fun thanksgiving with my in-laws. And like any once good blogger turned terrible blogger, I took very few pictures.
*hanging head in deep,deep shame*
But I did remember to take pictures of the important stuff.
Like proof that the men in my husband's family really do know their way around a kitchen and how to cook.
*sigh* I LOVE blackmail. Don't you?
Since my husband's family is so large now with all nine kids married and there are about a billion grand-kids, we all don't fit in my in-laws house anymore.
It only has one bathroom. I still don't know how they managed that one.
So this place was rented and the kids had a blast with all the running room. It was rented for the family Christmas party that they have every year. This year the party was planned for the day after Thanksgiving. It worked out well.
Meet one of my adorable little nephews.
I'm pretty sure if I wasn't already pregnant, this little guy would have me baby hungry in a second! He's just so delicious!
This little niece of mine is something else too.
That's why Alayna is something of a novelty. She's the only grand kid on my husband's side of the family with brown eyes.
And can I just say there is nothing my kids love more than playing with all their cousins, especially Savannah. She's in heaven at these get-togethers.
And she always cries when we leave. Always.
Since there are so many grand kids, it was decided a while ago to do a book exchange for the kids. Each child is given the name of another and they give out a book to each other.
This was a gift especially for me.
I'm starting to think people know me too well.
And this is what I get for telling my husband to take some pictures.
He snuck one in of me.
Now you know what I was really doing the whole time.
At least it wasn't one of me stuffing my face full of food. Which is the other thing I did the whole time.
Now you know my secret.
Hope you had a great week too!
