**Thankfully, my day didn't end the way it started out. I started shopping at 1:10pm & by 3:30pm, I had only bought 2 gifts! The rest of the time was spent in traffic trying to get from one end of town to the other! But, when I finally got to the mall, things went much smoother (ironically). I finished my sister & her husband. Then, I went to another mall & finished Matt's mom & got my step-mom's birthday gift. Next, I went to a few other stores for Matt. And, finally, with a quick to the scrapbook store & Wal-Mart, I FINALLY FINISHED! I got home at 6:45pm!**
Next on my agenda: WRAPPING PRESENTS!!
(P.S. When I got home, I found 4 presents under the tree for me!)
Am I crazy to go to not one, BUT TWO, malls the week before Christmas? Probably.
Matt & I are both off work today & we're both going shopping (separately) to finish buying gifts. Wait...who am I kidding? Matt's actually just STARTING his list today because the only person he has to buy gifts for is ME! I buy every single gift for everyone in both our families. I make the list, I do the budget, I make sure everything's equal & I wrap the gifts!
But, really I don't think I'd want it any other way because I actually love to buy presents, wrap them & put them under the tree! And, Matt's really creative when it comes to my gifts. Every year, I think I know exactly what he's gotten me, but then I open them up & I'm totally wrong.
Speaking of wrapping gifts, it usually takes Matt about 30 minutes to wrap one present. The other night, I wrapped a gift for his mom in like 2 minutes flat. He was like, "Did you wrap that present already?". I nodded my head & he said, "Slow down, you're gonna get a tummyache!".
Anyway, today, I have my "To Do List" ready to go, complete with my coupons from various shops! I am ready to brave the crowds & cross every item off my list! Then, I get to come home & wrap it all! I think Matt even has some kind of "To Do List"!
We'll see how it goes...
