Today I did a little Christmas shopping.
Although I suppose it's a bit of stretch to qualify all my shopping today as "for Christmas."
In truth, I bought two Christmas presents, a shower present, and a few things for myself.
"One for you, one for me." Just kidding, sorta.
I actually worked really hard to hold myself back from personal purchases. In fact, most of what I purchased for myself were shower-related products.
I even passed up a super cute, sleeveless, pin-striped, summer weight shift dress from GAP. Not that I'm bitter or anything.
And I walked through ALL of Pier 1 without considering a simple thing. Although, I will admit I find throw pillows inspirational.
Don't ask me why.
I also went to Costco for lunch. Their samples, particularly on Sunday, are the best!
What surprised me the most about the venture was how many people were shopping. I mean, seriously, it's not even Thanksgiving. I went now to avoid the crowds. (And use my GAP 30% Give and Get discount.)
What is going on people?!
And I would know if it's a lot of people. Our household visits Costco approximately 2-3 times a week.
That's no exaggeration either.
My guess is that's it the week dollar's fault. Those Canadians are pouring over the border to take advantage like there's no tomorrow.
