Extreme Holiday Shopping

Ever notice how Holiday shopping is sorta like doing extreme sports haha?! It is just always so insanely packed and holiday shoppers can be crazy and mean! Thankfully I have never experienced the mean ones but the crazy ones yes!

So I know the pic above doesn't really have anything to do with what I bought on our little shopping trip today, but I just thought it was really cute and festive...

My main reason for making my shopping trip a little earlier in the day is because we had to go get a gift for my son before he got home from school. He wanted one of the V-tech laptops from Santa so we had to go and find one of those... The one that he had originally said he wanted was no longer in K-Mart... so we had to go search Wal-Mart for it.... let me point out that I don't really like Wal-Mart because they are always so insanely packed...even when it isn't Christmas time!!

We ended up finding this one... it's the V-tech Brilliant Creations. I can't believe how many different little computers they actually make, it's insane!

Although our trip to K-Mart wasn't a total bust we got almost all of the rest of our gifts there aka giftcards haha.
I literally bought a ton of gift cards at K-Mart and then ended up buying another one when we got to Wal-Mart! They always have lots to choose from so you don't have to travel all over the place getting different ones.

Did you guys know that they charge like $4 just to activate the gift cards, and not only that but they each have to be a separate transaction. That is totally rediculous!

So we ended up buying like 3 different American Express gift cards, one for my step-dad, brother, and my mother-in-law's boyfriend too. I got my grandpa a Bass Pro Shops gift card, and my mother-in-law a Sears gift card. They are all really hard to buy for so this was easier haha! Now I just need some little gift bags for them, and I do mean little. I still have to go back out and get my hubby's other gift too! Then I will finally be totally finished YAY!!!


  1. You're right! Holiday shopping is like doing extreme sports--what a great analogy! At least the holiday shopping season will be over soon :)

  2. I do love christmas shopping as well,such joy !!
