After Christmas Shopping...

I've been doing some after Christmas shopping. I went by Walmart and found some great stuff for 75% off!!!
Such a super deal!!!

Some very cool stuff I picked up at M's; 2 BG 12x6 chipboard books (on clearance at 60%:) and another MS stamp set. This one was only 50% off when I bought it though, but I didn't want to chance missing out on this one.

I SO love the new K&Co. Vday papers. Can't think of the name of the line right now though;)

Also from M's. Got this Prima paper pad today for 1/2 off. Glad I didn't get it yesterday. I was debating it. It's part of the new stuff that's going into the Designer's Corner. They also had some new Autumn Leaves stuff, but most of the new stuff isn't out yet. Can't wait to see what else they'll get in.

There's a lot of stuff on clearance so I'm assuming they are getting in new product. The chipboard books are from the $1 bins!!! There were boxes of other Colorbok stuff, but they were taped shut:( All I got to see were some little packs of some chipboard accents. Can't wait to see that new stuff too.The kids at midnight on New Year's. I brought Lij over. For the last few years he's spent New Year's Eve with us. It's become some kind of a tradition. We ordered in pizza and they played Wii Music and watched movies and read scary stories from V's new book:) We headed to bed right after midnight. Watched the live fireworks downtown and then turned in:)

New Years day we left the kids with the inlaws and we did a little shopping then took in a movie. We went to see the movie Fireproof. My MIL kept saying we should see it and Lal'd been talking about it too. She ordered the movie and got the soundtrack. It was a good movie with a very good message. Afterwards we went to use of gc to Texas Roadhouse that my inlaws gave us for Christmas. We ran into my BIL and SIL who were also there using their gc too:) I had the chicken fried sirloin which was SO delicious. It was also quite large. I only ate about 1/3 of it and brought the rest home. We had a grilled shrimp skewer as an appetizer and it was SO yummy.

In other news, the kids go back to school tomorrow. Yay!!! V was ready early; had already showered and was lying on the couch watching TV. At about 8:30 she says to me...Shouldn't I be in bed by now???...Yikes!!! I think I got a little to used to the kids staying up late. So we rushed to get in bed. Hoping tomorrow will be an easy morning. I gotta clean house tomorrow,but it should go quickly with everyone out of the house.

I'm watching Sex and the City on my portable DVD, waiting on a load of laundry to come out of the dryer and I gotta do a quick batch of dirty dishes, then I'm headed to bed. I really hope I'll be able to get out of bed at 6am:(
