Hubby did go shopping with me this morning and we did get a new microwave. How about that! The microwave thing is funny because my menfolk always pick on me that I can't handle change (I can't) so how will I handle a new microwave? It's bigger than the old one and we already have limited counter space, so yeah, it IS making me twitch a bit! LOL Now none of the usual counter things fit in their usual spaces, and when I tried rearranging things a bit, the whole Change Is Bad thing got worse and worse. At least the dang thing is white like the old one.
While shopping, I paused to look at the Christmas wax section. Hubby kinda laughed, "Like you need more wax." I agreed and we moved on. Well then over by the regular wax aisle, we saw the big Bin o' Wax and *hubby* pauses to look through it. There were a ton of leftover fall scents in there. I grabbed Warm Apple Pie because this was the best version of the scent I'd found this year. I'll tuck it away for next fall. I also grabbed Candied Mulberry Spice because I've had it before, I've been eyeing it every week, and because I was commenting elsewhere on this blog about not having enough of this type of scent for Christmas. Hubby wanted the Blackberry Cider, and then we both agreed on Coffee Cake Swirl because I've just never had that one.
My Walmart FINALLY has the Christmas stickers and things out in the scrapbook supplies aisle. They've had the other stickers out over in the Christmas decorations sections for a while now but the more classy things like you find in the scrapbook aisle were slow in coming. I grabbed this pack with my journal in mind. There is a bit of glitter here and there, and they're just so classic and pretty.
I also grabbed this pack of ornaments stickers. There is some shimmery gold foil detailing on them. These also look so classy. Again, thinking of my journal for these.
And this pack is just. so. cute. I mean, look at those cute little animals! There is no glitter or shimmer but they do still strike me as sort of classic and classy again. Thinking of my journal for these too.
Although . . .
I've skipped two days of journaling and didn't even realize it. Blogmas has been hogging my attention, I guess. Actually the last couple days I had written in my journal I'd mentioned in there it was feeling like something I didn't need to do anymore now that I was back to blogging. So if the journal does start gathering dust I might just tuck these stickers away until next year. Who knows, maybe I'll be revisiting the card making idea again by then?!
I watched a bit of the Jim Carrey version of the Grinch this evening. I've never seen it! The other day, one of the YouTubers I watch was showing her almost four year old daughter's reaction to that movie, and the girl looked scared and was telling her mom to turn it off. I kinda laughed at that and thought, 'Yeah, he's pretty scary in original cartoon form too.' Well after seeing a bit of the movie myself now, I can see why a little kid would be afraid!! Wow, that movie is weird looking! I don't really have much interest in seeing the rest of it now.
Speaking of YouTube and Christmas movies, I was watching another video this morning, where the two ladies were showing all of their Christmas decorations. They had a bunch of Christmas Vacation ornaments and things and I started thinking, 'I love that movie! Why have I never collected any ornaments related to it?!' I know there are some at Walmart right now. Why have I never gotten any? So I told the menfolk I was adding that idea to my list. They laughed their 'You're a dork!' laugh and went on about their business.
That's fine. I know what I'll be looking for in after-Christmas clearance! lol
No cards in the mail today, people.
What did you do on this Day 12 Saturday?
Did you rush to Bath & Body Works and stock up on $2.50 hand soaps??
