Early Christmas Shopping

After writing over 125 customer thank you cards, I decided that it was time to go shopping. I usually do all my shopping the day after Thanksgiving, yes, at four in the morning, but this year since all the stores were having pre-Thanksgiving sales I decided that saving an extra 10% was not enough for me to get out of bed at 3am.

Anyway, I drove to the store and proceeded to pick out all my items. I was thinking that maybe I should just look and go back on Friday when all the toys would be 50% off rather than just 40%, but the thought of getting up made me just stick to my original plan. When it comes to sales I am really cheap. It is weird because I do not mind spending A LOT of money buying a purse, I guess because Gucci never has a sale and because all I can really do is buy from eluxury just to make sure I do not pay the sales tax and get free shipping. When it comes to “normal” items I am a little psycho in trying to find the lowest price possible.

Ok, back to my story, I get the items and go check-out. Imagine my elation when the cashier tells me that I can save and EXTRA 15% by applying for a store card; I do not have to use the card all I have to do is apply!!! I was so excited. Yesterday I won a Wii Fit and today I am getting an extra 15% off in purchases that was bitting the bullet and getting because I did not want to get up so early in the morning. Wow, it is my lucky day. After the shopping spree I made my way to my local gas station where I purchased five lotto tickets and three scratch-offs. I have not checked them yet, but I could be a millionaire.

I Won!!!

I attended the Mom 2.0 Kick-Off Party tonight and I won a Wii Fit!! Not only that, but I also won a free ticket to the conference. Man, it is my lucky day. I never win anything, so it was a nice surprise.

Lighting of The Doves

My daughter had her first twirling gig today at The Lighting of The Doves at The Woodlands. She only began twirling a couple of months ago, but I think she did really well for a newbie. She also looked simply adorable in her outfit and red ponytail bows.

Friday Very Busy Fun Day!!

On Friday I had lunch with my dear friends Sandra and Claudia. I had not see Claudia in ages so it was nice to see her again and just catch up.

High School Reunion Planning MTG #3
And since I had a reunion planning meeting in town I decided just to hang out and wait for the Happy Hour to begin. The reunion committee met at Cadillac Bar, the place that we were thinking of using...we do have to tested out and all!! We did decided that the Cadillac Bar was a perfect fit for our event. I am glad that has been decided.

We had a blast and I think disclosed just a little bit too much, like high school crushes. I just hope it is not brought up ever again ;(

High School Reunion - MTG #2

I attended my second high school reunion planning meeting today. Things are going well, I think we have decided to plan and put together the event ourselves rather than use a planning reunion service. This will mean a lot more work for those involved, but we will have more control of how we want things done. Is that good or bad? don't know yet!

This time for dessert I made Walnut Brownies and took some vanilla ice cream to accompany my chocolate creations. Yummy!!

Huh, once again, I used to be incredibly shy in high school, so it is a little weird to me that I would want to be involved as much as I am, since realistically I AM meeting my classmates for the first time. So far everyone has been super nice, so I hope that things continue as well as they are. If not, I will just have to eat my $50 worth of food at the reunion party!

My Girl Lenny is in Town

My girl Lenny made a visit to Houston so we decided to get together and hit the town. We first stopped by the Red Lion Pub and then headed to Pearl Bar. It was a lot of fun, but I had a little too much to drink, oops! Anyway, once in a while is ok, plus Lenny was in town ;)

He was my prom date almost 20 years ago! The whole night I kept calling him "Prom Date". Everyone thought I was kidding. Too funny!
