Getting Ready To Celebrate


I went back to Dollar General yesterday since I had another $2/1 Axe Gift Set Dollar General Q and a $3.75/1 Axe set ManuQ.  I also took along a couple of $2/1 Dana fragrances Qs and $2/1 Playboy fragrances Qs since the DG ad noted that they carried the small bottles of Dana brands for $2 and Playboy body sprays were on sale for $3.50 this week.


I ended up finding the last one of each of these products at this particular store!

1 x Dana fragrance=$2.00
1 x Playboy spray=$3.50

$15.50-$9.75=$5.75+.34¢ tax=$6.09 for all

After Qs, the Tabu was free, the Playboy was $1.50 and the Axe set was $4.25....plus tax.

Then Daughter and I did some Holiday baking yesterday as well.
We did 3 batches of fudge.
Then we had a take-out lunch.
Then we lost the motivation to do anymore baking and napped.

But here is what we got done before lunch....

Chocolate Nut Fudge
Butterscotch Nut Fudge
Salted Butterscotch Fudge

Then I went and used our hotel points to make a donation of $40 to Rebuilding Together.  The membership company doubled the donation to $80.
Awesome!





A large box of gifties arrived today from my brother and sis-in-law.  The tree is looking quite grand and bountiful now.....

That old Christmas rug by the way has been in my family since before I was born.  It is a bit of tradition that makes the Holidays feel like home to me. ;-)

I also hung a few more ornies on the tree.....

Celebrate in Maxine style!.....


And everyone's tree needs other kinds of crabbiness as well.....


And really, if you have kids that grew up in the 1990's, it's not Christmas without cartoon characters like this one.....


And mom get's equal time on the tree for her childhood.....

  1. Love the combination of festive activities! And, is that a Pokemon ornament? My kids would love something like that - I'll have to keep my eye open. We try to get them an ornament each year.

    I made my favorite cookies this week. Raspberry strippers. That is their official name. :-) Every time I make them, the husband always sings "I'm in love with a stripper" by TPain. We keep it classy around our house. ;-)
