Thursday Thirteen - Christmas Shopping

I accomplished my shopping in two days this year! And that with carrying along a 3 month old baby. Amazing, right?! Here’s a list of stores I visited in those two days (in order of dollars spent) and, coincidentally, there just happens to be thirteen. Shop any of these for your gifts? Any of these your favorite? Merry Christmas!

Thirteen Stores Where I Shopped for Presents:

1. Target
2. Best Buy
3. Babies R Us
4. Costco
5. Recollections - Great scrapbooking store
6. Academy Sports
7. Office Depot
8. Ulta
9. Bookrak - my favorite used bookstore
10. Starbucks
11. Borders
12. Hallmark
13. Walgrens

It's such a crazy time of year. On one hand, all the expectations of family and STUFF. And then the constant expectation to keep with the spirit of the season, no matter what faith. No wonder we all go a little nuts.

My shopping places: one indie toy store, Target, AMAZON. That's it. Nearly 95% Amazon Christmas. Is good!

I wish we had a Costco around here. While I'm wishing, I'll ask for a Trader Joe's too. Happy TT!

Yeah, I HATE shopping in person. HATE IT. We did everyone except Dave and Karen over the internet. Just didn't have time for any other option...and really, still don't...argh. And I still have to shop for Chris for Christmas and birthday, too...but I think that'll be Target. And then Chris wants me to take Cleta shopping when they get here because she wants to go to the mall...on the 23rd! INSANE! I think I'll play sick. :-)

Target and Borders, definitely! I purchased gifts for six people at a little garden shop across from DH's office, Down To Earth. They have cool stuff ranging from kitchenware to herbal bath-stuff to kid's unique toys to garden items. LOVE that place! Even better, I got two kid-free hours to browse there, too :-)

Merry Christmas, Pal!

I did almost all my shopping at Target and Barnes and Noble.

Merry Christmas!
