Please stop me...

PLEASE!

The girls each have 7 x-mas pressies and one more planned! It's all within my budget of $150 per kid but really! Enough already! The problem is that once I get to the store and I see all of these things that I know the girls will just love than I have to buy them. I have issues. I know.

I bought Olivia a gorgeous Barbie ballerina dress, Madeline her CD player and a Bella Dancerella "Swan Lake" kit and Phoenix an adorable soft "My first Eeyore." I still need to get Olivia's Littlest Pet Shop ($50) and Madeline's 12 Dancing Princesses with Genevieve Horse and Carriage ($50). I need to buy Phoenix some Robeez, a book and some Jammies. If I do end up having the money I really want to buy him that Discovery Dome. I probably will. Then do their stockings (dollar store) and they are done!

Next payday is everyone else on my list. The payday after that (the 22nd of December) Jeff and I finally get to buy for one another. Oh how I wish I had endless money... or the credit to pretend I had endless money ;) At least with no real credit cards (well I have a $200 one but that's it) we can't get into any trouble. Everything we buy is with our own money and not borrowed.

Phoenix is sleeping (since 9:30) and I think I'll head to bed. Liv, Phoenix and I will go over to Robyn's tomorrow to hang for a bit, Maddy and Daddy are going to do some painting (model guys.) It should all be fun.

I wonder where my sister is, I think I'll call her. Okay.. called. No answer. I wonder if she's in jail? She's been denied citizenship to the usa and she's due to be deported... well any time now. I have not heard from her in days so maybe? I dunno. Dawn if you are reading this CALL ME YOU COW. (sisterly love)

Well Jeff's geeking out and my oh so warm bed is calling me.

Jaclyn from SN here. Have you ever seen shoeszoo shoes? They are a canadian rip off of robeez and I love them. They are super soft and um lets see - almost $20 cheaper! You can buy them off ebay, just search under shoes zoo and then visit her ebay store. I bought Flynn the Cat and Mouse ones - soooo cute! They are all leather like robeez, the picture's on the shoes are not as great as the Robeez but heck for $17 cheaper, I'll take it. Here's the link.. http://stores.ebay.com/Shoes-Zoo

And like you I spend way too much money on presents for my kids at Christmas - Loooove It!

I have seen then! They are adorable. I have five or six pairs of them in the house that were Olivia's. You know... that's a good idea. I need to go ebay shopping I think! Thanks for reminding me!

cool!!! I need to go get some for Phoenix but the only ones his size are on auction... I should go bid on them.

Robyn said...

i can't believe they only cost me just under $12, shipping included! That so rocks.

It really does... I need to buy Ella's shoes for christmas through them too. That will save me a ton of money. And I've been checking out the Klean Kanteen's.. who has the best price? I'm lost!

i believe the seller's name on ebay who i bought mine through was sierraropeproducts. they sell alot of them on there, and they seem to have the best price, and fast shipping.
