Friday Night Leftovers-Boxing Week Edition

  • Today is day day 7 of my 10 day vacation.
  • Throughout my days off, I have accomplished very little.  Not sure what I was hoping to accomplish, but I feel like I have nothing to show for my time off.  At least I got in some quality time visiting with family and friends over the holidays.
  • I snagged some great Boxing Week sales this week.  At Walmart, I got a treetop angel and 6 rolls of wire ribbon all for 50% off.  At Canadian Tire, we snagged 2 rolls of white outdoor Christmas lights for $82.49 each (regular $109.99 each) plus got $30 in promotional gift cards to be used in January.  We used the 50% off Zellers coupon to purchase a crib mattress for $55, and I just purchased the coveted JuJuBe diaper bag online for 20% off (still ridiculously overpriced but it is the lowest that I have seen it yet).  Did you get any great Boxing Week sales?
  • Although Christmas has come and gone, our tree and decorations will stay up until after Ukrainian Christmas.
  • This week my cloth diapers that I purchased online finally arrived.  They are so stinkin' cute!
bumGenius 3.0 DELUXE stash.
  • This Sunday, I will be 19 weeks pregnant.  Where has the time gone?
  • On January 11th, Ryan's sister will be having a scheduled C-section for her second child (a boy).  This will be our 5th niece/nephew.  I am super excited!
  • We currently have no plans for New Years.  We will likely stay at home and struggle to stay awake until midnight!

  1. I no longer pretend I'm going to stay up until midnight! I think the last time I did was before I got pregnant the first time. Apparently having kids makes me lame!

    Haha I am lame without any kids! If I was on my own I would have no guilt going to bed before 12. New years has never been a big deal to me.

  3. Thanks for commenting on my blog post, if you have any other CD questions along the way I would be happy to help :) Congrats on your stash of BG diapers, they are GREAT!

    Thanks for the offer. I don't know too many CDing moms personally, and just might take you up on that in a few months!

  5. I definitely didn't make it to midnight. And, sadly, I didn't do a single bit of after-Christmas shopping. I think I was just so ready for it to be over this year, I couldn't look at another wreath or bow.

    I hear you about being done with Christmas. I absolutely hate Boxing Day crowds, but can't justify paying full price for things that we will only use for a month every year. Absolutely all of our Christmas stuff has been purchased at discount prices after Christmas.
    The rest of my shopping was done online, so I didn't have to deal with crowds!
